Yes, "Classic Games" is vague, but I am going with it. Please feel free to pop in on this thread to share what you may have for websites, YouTube channels, etc... that may be of value:

Thanks.

I find it a bit tricky, because you find general game stuff where classic gets mashed in with modern stuff. I do not mind some mash, but just general gaming doesn't help cut through the clutter.

I was looking to add what I find to the thread on this in the Cult of the Old guild thread:

Just because someone likes classic games doesn't mean they are the type stuck with a few games and that is it. Of course, a Cult of the Old type person may just play a few games and that is it. However, I hold that someone may want to keep finding games that are new to them, but have been around awhile. Acres of Diamonds is where you dig into what you have to uncover new and valuable content you didn't know you had owned. So, you can have a cult of the new version of the cult of the old by digging into classics. A lot of the classic games of the past use equipment people have now.

I started a thread in the Cult of the Old guild on here to discuss this further. Feel free to go there:

I was able to register the domain classicgamescon.com . I am looking to launch an online convention for fans if classic games, aka members of the cult of the old.

Stay tuned. ClassicGamesCon.com will point to the cult of the old guild on here, until the convention site launches, corresponding with the convention being able to launch.
