View Full Version : Roms Discussion
10th September 2003, 19:28
I'm just wondering if we have any rom collectors in these forums. Maybe know alot about them. I mainly collect old Atari and SNES roms and play them on a regular basis. I think roms are the few ways to get old games that arent found in stores anymore. I have a bunch of Jap SNES games too. What about you? What do you have?

ROM discussions on the forum are illegal. Expect this thread to be shut down or deleted if a mod sees this...
PM me and I can give you sites, though... :D

First sign of a rom site link, emulator link or request and the topic goes bye bye, keep it legal people.

I have lots of Roms for Lots of systems, but to be safe I will reframe from listing them. PM or IM if you want to rant on the subject further.

oops..sorry..didnt know it was illegal to talk about it than list links...

It's not illegal to talk about it, but as ROMS are viewed as illegal by all major game manufactures, we don't wanna incur the wrath of say Nintendo legal by posting links to sites/downloads etc etc etc.
Talk, but don't link.

I agree, just trying to relive the old days of button mashing asteroids on an old atari joystick is quite fun. You don't get that too much simpler these days now. So far they brought back almost every lookalike game from the past and put 3d tech on them. But most of em suck. Cept the RPG games they're making on GBA like Tales of Phantasia and the like. But they need to bring back Tanks! or a sidescroller Defender game. That would kick ass!

www.downloadromsforfree.com is is the best site for roms man! you can get all the roms you want for free!!! screw you nintendo for making awesome games that i am too cheap to pay for yeah!!!!
(this is not a romsite link, nor emulator link)
I have the NES emulator, Nesticles or ZNES or something. Its for windows and I like it. Plays all the old games that dont work anymore cuz they are all dirty and stuff. I only have like 5 games though since all the links to roms and stuff are always getting taken down on the net.
12th September 2003, 12:19
and non existent site...
There's big legal site they havent busted yet cuz the corpers thinks its a pay site even though it aint....PM me for the link if u want it..

I use Kazaa (for legal roms of course):) You can easilly obtain zips of up to 2,000 roms. I make a point of sharing such files. I have stacks for Mame/Genesis/Snes/ZX Spectrum. Free gaming.:up:
12th September 2003, 20:11
yeah..but then..i got a lousy 56k and those files get queried..alot...so it's unreliable..and i find it hard tryin to sort out 200 games and there's the rest u d/led but never played cuz it sucks or its in jap.
14th September 2003, 23:40
obtaining roms with the 56k can be tedious, especially thoughs for systems like the n64,32x, and neo geo whos roms are quite large.
15th September 2003, 17:15
I don't see how the distrubution of old roms is hurting any company economically, its not like if my NES and Super Mario Bro. 3 cartridge break I can just walk in to EB or Babbages and buy a new one. Hell, even EA use to offer some of their old Genisis games online for free.
15th September 2003, 19:57
Yeah, but they allow the legal rights to be lifted. Now if a different company does the same to an old EA Genesis game, then we got problems.
21st September 2003, 12:36
i have a couple hundred snes roms, and even more amiga ones.
21st September 2003, 15:05
I have quite a few....because back then I was only 5-9 years old, I had no idea what the games where really about. So I play them now to freshen up the old memories :D
24th September 2003, 11:50
Pretty much everyone got drawn out of the old 8 bit pixel games and went to high res PS or PS2 games. Only roms are now there to relive the past.

I use Mame often. Space Invaders, Berzerk, Bomb Jack, Bubble Bobble, Joust etc. A good game's a good game.
