We can’t even compare our old and favorite games from way back then. But the good part is that there are ROM and emulators available that have managed to safeguard them forever. More than just this, some websites have managed to capture some nostalgic gaming memories in plenty of ways. Let’s check some of these websites.
The Video Game Museum: The feel and look of The Video Game Museum is as classic and nostalgic as all the games you’ll find listed in its many libraries. In spite of showing no updates for nearly three to four years, the website is still running and is loaded with memorable content. This website provides a complete collection of classic gaming media on the web. It features:
- Console photographs and specifications
All of the content is amazingly visual and interesting. It is hard to find any other website that has screenshot-by-screenshot details of video game endings just like The Video Game Museum. The entire website does a magnificent job of taking and indexing screenshots.
The section that records advertisements for video games is another one of the unique and excellent areas of this website. You can browse through more than 500 total advertisements, most of which were found in gaming magazines at some point. Also, there are the game scans, where you can find fronts and backs, cover art, manuals, inserts, and much more. There are nearly 6000 of these listed in total for a whole handful of consoles. The website is a collection of all these amazing old video games and things related to them. The amount of content offered by Video Game Museum should put it at the top most choice for gaming nostalgia.
VGMaps.com: VGMaps.com takes a unique approach that probably wouldn’t exist if not for this website. The whole website is committed to bringing you level and maps layouts for some of the popular classic games. The website deserves to be appreciated for the effort it has taken to put together the amazing things. All the maps are indexed in order. VGMaps.com receives user contributions, and the majority of maps listed on this website are split directly from ROMs, so the efficiency is perfect and dependable. If you’re a classic gamer, you would love using the images that VGMaps.com makes easily available, your gaming experience could be made greatly smoother and much more improved. It’s truly a one-of-its-kind website.
VGMusic: While the first two sites are visual, VGMusic takes another approach. This website has a collection of more than 20,000 audio files, all chosen from some of our favorite games. Listings are arranged in alphabetical order. The song title, file size, sequencer and link to comments are available for all song files in the archive. VGMusic has their Facebook group, Twitter, forums, IRC chat, and even an online radio. The community is a close group and is there for quite a long time. This archive is managed very well.
In this era where 16-bit games are long gone and almost forgotten, these websites are impressive. They provide us an opportunity to look back and remember how much we enjoyed gaming in the ’90s.
