CNET Reviews - CD-ROM Central
At $50.00 a game and up, playing around on the computer can get fairly pricey, fairly quickly. Anymore it takes a savvy, informed shopper not to get taken by the latest and supposedly greatest game to come down the pike-especially those games being driven by a promotions department that's hyped up and hungry for a sale. Sometimes it takes an objective eye to help tighten the focus and show things for what they are. That's why it's not a bad idea at all to check out how reviewers react to the new games coming into the market. As part of its search services, c/net offers a CD ROM library of reviews and games is one of the categories covered. Reviews are short and to the point, and links lead to supplemental material. If the reviewer feels the game is worth the expense, a recommendation to buy is given; if not, no recommendation is given and players are left to decide for themselves. The games reviewed are indexed alphabetically.

The Roguelike Games Home Page
Billions and billions of years ago ... well not quite, but it was back in the computer dark ages, long before the advent of the Web and graphic computer games. The best game in town was a text-based adventure called rogue. Players roamed a dungeon slaying nightmares, garnering treasures, and growing in power. It was fun, and the game became the first of a whole genre. The story of rogue-like games is an interesting tale and is presented with many illustrative links on this page hosted Boudewijn Waijers. Among the featured items find a few FAQs, newsgroups, an FTP archive housing game codes, and utilities. Links to other fan pages round out the offerings presented. Even those not interested in text-based adventuring may want to stop by this page. It really brings home just how far gaming technology has come in so few years.
