So I have awesome friends and an awesome partner. Branden (@puckbrandgaming) & I went to Charlottesville, VA today (about a 1.5hr Drive from Lynchburg, VA which we live near) to meet up with some dear friends. The visit was two-fold: 1) we were picking up some old computers they had in their basement & 2) I’d be helping Jim fix an audio port on his PC that a tip of an audio jock had broken off in.

On the way there, Jim messages me and asks if I am interested in some old computer games too. I responded with an “Absolutely!” and he went rummaging. 3 boxes later he told me he had gotten most of it ready. Now, mind you, i drive a 2015 Chevy Spark which is not a huge vehicle and I hadn’t thought to see about borrowing a larger car from family because I had only anticipated the computers.

After arriving, we ordered pizza and B & I drooled over the Tech and Games. After lunch, I got to work on Jim’s computer w/the audio issue & solved a couple other problems/questions while we were there.

We finished up around 2:30ish. Originally we had planned to shop around in Charlottesville before leaving but we had such a huge haul to being home that we didn’t dare try. Thanks to B’ Tetris skills, we managed to get the car packed up.

An hour and a half later we arrived at home! I parked at the basement door, we unloaded, and we crashed. I got a few pics before shutting down for the night and that is what you see below.

The first pic below is a shot of almost all the games (only 2 small box PC games aren’t shown). The next pic is everything after unpacking at home. The third pic is the stuffed car. Next pic is B & I in the car on the way home. Next is a collage of all of the large hardware (Macs, PC, Monitors, etc). Two of the biggest pieces in the game lot are next: a SEALED copy of “The Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall.” Next is a boxed copy of “Doom II” on 3.5” floppies. That same box also has a registered copy of “Doom” (version 1.666) It also has what appears to be a shareware copy of “Doom” (version 1.2). I have been unable to find out who sold/distributed it so far. Once I get a floppy drive in one of my rigs running I should know for sure.

We love retro tech and retro games. If anyone you know is getting rid of any (ESPECIALLY old floppy disk games, CD-ROM games are good too though) then please let us know!
