HOTU is the best abandonware site on the Internet (though I think they prefer to be called a “software museum.”) They have features on games going back to 1979’s Computer Quarterback from SSI and as recent as 2002’s Sid Meier’s SimGolf. All of them include user ratings and may have won the coveted “Top Dog” award.
You can get lost just browsing the collection–assuming you’re an old fart like me who remembers these games. But, of course, the best part is that you can download most of them… or, if you just lost the manual, you can probably get a PDF copy there. At least they’ll tell you where you can find these gems.
