I've bought UFO:Enemy Unknown three or four times, and various other games
are in many degrees of uselessness. Grim Fandango won't work on any newer
operating system than Win95 OSR2 without using Blind CD Read (or
something) to make an *installable* game. Copy protection schemes have,
in short, ruined my experience with games :/
Lots of good reasons to look sites to get game copy information.
