    Is there any websites or programs like steam that let you buy older pc games and download them to play on windows?

    Ill shout up for good old games, it's worth remembering that they rip away protection methods.

    Been great for me, the cd checks on the old pro pinball games went west, and there's a few starforce releases i grabbed off um.

    Slightly off topic. But I take it that gog is totally legal and that companies like Double Fine get some sort of % when you buy something like Psychonauts?

    Yup they're totally legal. Really great service, though I wish certain games were slightly cheaper..
