www.happypuppy.com Some game demos were about 200kb back in 1996. But on a 28.8 kbps modem, that might have taken 30 minutes to download, haha. I would wake up at 6:30am and start downloading before I had to leave for school at 8. I named a recent computer "Happypuppy" after this site. I remember downloading "Constructor" at one point, must have been a few MBs, that was fun.

www.waybackmachine.org is fun to visit.

PC Games Archives on ftp.uml.edu/ftp.uwp.edu (oh, you said websites... but in its defense, this archive is preserved here )
The PC Release List (before and after folding into Adrenaline Vault)
a 3D game demos page in Sweden in the mid-90's I can't remember the name of
Cyrellis
Gone Gold
Games Domain
UGR.net (Ultimate Gaming Resource)
3D Files (formerly 3DfxMania)
3D Gamers


Bit of a thread liching.. but I've got to thank xymph for this.. For about 6 months I've been trying to remember what the hell the downloadable magazine I read in the early/mid 90s was. Game Bytes is what it was called and being fairly generic would never have got it. but all the issues are on the above ftp site!

Ah that dos text look....

I am not sure, since in waybackmachine it looks different than I recall, but I think I really loved 3dgamer.com

then again, maybe not..

Ok Steve, my turn to be incredulous...I can't believe I forgot about Joost's "Aftershock."

Stomped, Redwood, Op33dfx, all memories. Sugashack, haha.

I was mostly a VE3D poster, though. I posted here until registration was required; didn't actually register until VE3D became IGN. It was downhill long before then, though, and I basically used that to post and Blues for news. This was, afterall, the site that got me into QuakeWorld...

This will sound ridiculous, but when I was 11-12 it was all about ANT on AOL.

I just found this link on a quick google search. His musings on it will suffice for my own:
http://vgmusings.blogspot.com/2008/11/whatever-happened-to-antagonist-inc.html

Actually my own experience was even more obscure, I was in the group WaSP, and surprisingly it has a single mention in the comments further down the page.

Have you heard from him lately?

Nope, he resurfaced a couple of years after closing the den with another project, but I haven't heard from him in years.

Mr. Wolf's Quake Den

I'm *really* mad I forgot that one... Blue's News might not be here today if not for Mr. Wolf's.
Have you heard from him lately? I ran accross him on a message board about 4-5 years ago after my gig with Sierra. Haven't seen him since. I was wondering if Riddah was still in a studio too...those days seem so long past now.

id's 19. and I *feel* like a dragon's age...

If you want to go "pre-internet" there was also Software Creations BBS. If you don't remember that, look on the back of your Doom/Doom2/Heretic box (you still have them...RIGHT? ).

Yeah the old Gamespot was kickass and god damn, they were harsh on games. I always went there because I knew if a game got even an 80 then it was pretty damned good.

My favorite was Gone Gold. I also liked GameSpot for its reviews before it "sold out"... I consider the old GameSpot a "long dead gaming website".

Yeah I've been thinking about making a spiritual successor to OMM but I just can't summon his level of sarcasm.
