 +Originally, I created this website to show my collection of old computer games. Later I converted it to a wiki so it is easier to expand. 
 +When collecting I have always compared to pictures either from other collectors or from ebay auctions to help determine if a game is complete or is missing something. And that has always been the purpose of the floppy disk, to show games with its contents, and maybe other collectors have found the pictures useful. So if you’re a collector, consider joining and contribute yours.
