Who wants vintage games?

The time has come to face facts. I'm never going to play these games again. I won't even want to, until, of course, I get rid of them.

So, here's a huge whack of games, most of them first run, most of them with original manuals. Some of them should go easily (Planescape: Torment, Full Throttle, Interplay Ultimate RPG Archive, for Wasteland if nothing else) and some probably won't (Heretic 2, Dark Reign.)

These are all going on Ebay over the next few months, but I figured I'd see if anybody here wants dibs first. If you'd like further information, or dibs on a game, email me per my profile. Things will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis.

These games are as is, but they should all work fine. Note that some are DOS; make sure you can actually run them somehow. DosBox is probably your friend here. Note that one is a C64 game and one is a Mac game (bought off Ebay for the adventurer's journals, actually.)

There are a few that I'm holding back, such as Wing Commander 3, 4 and 5, the Fallout series, the X-Com series, Quest for Glory series, the later Impressions Games citybuilders,the Forgotten Realms Archives (all the original Gold Box stuff, mainly. Pools of Radiance for the win!) but might just change my mind.

Oh, and if anybody wants a Sidewinder Force Feedback joystick (not USB) or a Saitek X-36 flight stick and throttle (again, not USB) let me know.
