Directories of interest include:

Just remember, to download anything, copy the download link and change "ftp://ftp.volftp.mondadori.com/" to "http://volftp.tiscali.it/"

[Edit] Uh, forgot to mention that the links above will only work if you copy-paste them in your browser manually. That site seems to have been poorly maintained lately, but it's worth a visit.
I've figured out this website can be browsed by means of the Wayback Machine too:
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://vol ... os/games/*
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://vol ... xx/games/*

hey there,

here's a cool retro-ish racing game. it doesn't seem like it has been around for years but it's appearance it pretty much what you would expect of a simple good old top-down racer. I tried to beat some best times but it would be more fun to go multiplayer.

http://www.2dracer.com (how do I make this a link?)

anyone up for a race here?

I've mostly been a haunt here - watching more than posting. But wanted to mention there's a new site at http://thisoldneon.com. I understand there is a D&D article and a couple pinball ones coming up. It's more of a human interest in gaming site than a review / advertising sort of site. Check it out :)
