Calling all Old Skool Gamers! Sign this petition!

http://abandonware.mivox.com/

Please sign this petition. It asks game manufacturers to list games either 2 versions or 7 years old as abandonware. I don't know about most of you, but I cut my gaming teeth on some pretty old games, which would fall under this category. And I have the hardware to run them. So please, in the name of l33t gamers, sign this petition!

HEY! I'm not old! These were the games I cut my teeth on. Catacombs Abyss, Wolfenstien 3D, One Must Fall, Star Control, and Star Control 2. Duke Nukem. Blake Stone. Doom. The Classics, man, the Classics. I pity the children of the future generation. They never knew what games were back in the day. They don't really appreciate the games of today, because they never played the crappy 320x240, 8-bit, midi-sound games of yesteryear.

Hmm. Didn't even pay attention. I signed it from work, so I really don't care too much, but I could see how that would be a concern for some. I'll shoot an email to the addy at the bottom of the page, and make mention of that. Thanks for the heads up, Betty.

And no, I have nothing to do with this petition, I just want my abandonware!

The response is that they cycle the names on the list. So eventually you'll fall off the list. They say they have over 5000 names. W00T!
