Good Old Games, or GOG.com, is a site that hosts, sells and supports really awesome old games like Fallout, Descent, MDK, and so on. It’s been in private beta since its announcement but now you can sign up and start getting some sweet deals like Freespace 2 for $6. That’s awesome! They’ve been gussied up and configured to run on regular XP and Vista systems so no DOS emulator is required. It’s essentially a virtual console for old PC games.
I already own boxed copies of a few of these, but some are really hard to find or impossible to get running straight off the disks. If I weren’t just now getting into Far Cry 2, I’d go get my Shogo on!
