Allgames shutting down December 12, 2014
Has anyone else used this site? Has a great archive of games including a section for controls needed in a game. Unfortunately the site is going away in less then a week.

Take a look, a huge database of games: http://www.allgame.com/platforms.php

There is a Feedback Section, recommend everyone submit something like this to encourage the archive. The Feedback has a section to enter your Email.

Please archive the entire Allgame HTMLs and offer a purchase of a CD Rom or a Digital Download. I would certainly buy a copy, please send me an Email with the sales link if you ever do.

Thank You,
CRTGAMER

They should have advertised the site more, I've never heard of it, then maybe the ad revenue would have helped pay for the site and they wouldn't have to shut it down.
