    Hi, forgive me before hand if this question is inappropriate.  If anyone will know, I figure it is men and women who love PC games.

    My husband recently died. He was a lifelong gamer. He Loved flight simulators and kept up with the advances in computing. He built his last machine about 2 yrs ago.  He taught himself languages and I have a room full of computer books.  So he was deeply involved with computers his entire adult life. Our time as gamers goes back to 1978 or so when we bought our Apple II. We went to PCs after the Amiga/commodore  folded.   I have an amazing collection of old PC games, some in the original boxes. I’d like to know if people are still interested in these games? Does anyone know a reputable way to sell them?  I don’t think I’ll make much money but I hate to have to send them to the dump or sell them at a garage sale. I’d like them to end up in the hands of people that appreciate the older (retro?) games.  He went to STEAM recently so most of the games are from late (circa) 80s-2010. I’ve searched on line without success. I also have his HOTAS thrust master (actually 2 of them but I don’t know if the second one still works.) foot pedals made for him by a designer in a foreign country and a VR headset. Please, do help me if only by telling me that there is no way to sell them and no one uses such games, any longer.

    Thanks.

    First, sorry for your loss. I know it might sound cheesy, but I think it’s the best way to start this conversation.

    Here’s my advice:

    1) There is always Ebay. As crummy as it has become, it still could be the best way to find buyers who want the retro stuff you want to sell.

    2) Go into YouTube and search for channels that talk about retro games. Maybe get in contact with those channels to either offer what you have or get their advice for selling. Channels dedicated to retro gaming are likely to have the answers you are looking for.

    Hope this helps.
