What techniques do you use to search for games?
Posted 25 January 2004 - 03:57 AM
What techniques do you guys use? Mine are probably pretty stupid > I use google, I usually type in the name of the game, then "Download" and if is an old PC game, I add "Abandonware" or if it is a console game, I add "emulator".
Like I said that is probably a stupid method but I find it is the only way to avoid "Download Street Fighter Alpha sex masturbation fisting blah blah blah" hits.
So, any tips?

Sometimes you can just do a Google search for the CRC values, and you sometimes get lucky and find a message board with Kawaks dats, or MAME drivers. Among those posts there tends to be a link to zips themselves. Like with Metal Slug 5, everyone was mainly concerned with getting it working, so the zips were commonly linked to all over various forums because people thought they had all the wrong files and traded it like Don Mattingly baseball cards.
Searching for filenames helps too, such as "270-p1.bin", etc.
I'd avoid searching for anything with "download" in the seach query. You'll mainly get logs of web searches for sites that don't even deal with videogames. Or worse...the ever-annoying circlejerk sites that trap you in voting loops.
