The "Classic" PC Games Archives =============================== This is a copy of the original PC Games Archives that was maintained during the early nineties on ftp.uml.edu by Brian O'Neill, and from November 1995 until the summer of 1996 on ftp.uwp.edu by David Datta. The original site was discontinued in June 1997, and most mirrors have since removed their copies. Out of respect for the historic significance of this first large games archive, ftp.gamers.org has retrieved a copy of it from the depths of the Internet :) and gives it a new home for as long as this site may exist. Please see the file README for additional information. Enjoy!
