The Classic Gaming Archive (CGA) strives to create videos, that show off the exact look and sound of classic games, when run on real hardware. There are plenty of people recording and streaming classic games running in emulators, but that does not show how the games actually played on the real hardware from the 70s, 80s and 90s. That piece of gaming history will be lost when the old machines stop working, unless we start archiving footage captured from real machines. This is the aim of the CGA:...

Let's Play is a collection of videogame playthroughs with commentary (either text or audio). Let's Play videos show the videogame being played while the player talks about what he is doing in real time commentary (sometimes just with text). Generally the playthroughs are spread over several segments of play (varying in time). Rarely some action is done "off screen" or speeded up to not get too repetitive, but in most cases the playthrough is a complete run of the game including all...

This collection hosts downloadable movie files documenting the swiftest possible way to complete videogames such as Quake, Metroid, Zelda and many others. The videos come from Speed Demos Archive , TASvideos , and other...
