Objective of this file:

The objective of this FAQ is to provide the collector of "classic" 
games information on current portable systems which have versions of these 
classic games. It is my intent to allow all those nostalgic moments to be
relived today, anywhere they may be. 
This FAQ will present answers to simple questions like "I remember such
and such game and want to play it again, where can I find it for the Gameboy,
etc." This is by no means a complete FAQ. I know there are games which exist
for other platforms that I have very little familiarity. Please email me with
information on these systems so I can make the FAQ as complete as possible. 
Also, I have little knowledge of foreign systems, so any information will be
greatly appreciated.
And now for the legal mumbo jumbo. I know part sucks for all, but I 
don't have the resources to get around any legal action that may arise from 
this document. With that out of the way.... This document in no way endorses
or criminalizes any company or person related to this FAQ. This FAQ is purely
informational, and are not the views of any corporation mentioned hereforth. 
This is a document for all to enjoy those classic games we all use to plop
quarters into.......

Q5: Where can I get such and such game?

A5: Most of the older games are hard to find, if you can find them at all. 
Your bet bet is to try searching around at a used game place. They will
usually carry a few games. Some will be nice enough to hold older games
if you give them a list of what you are looking for. Other than that,
search buy-sell-trade places, they usually have a couple on hand. If no
luck there, try these: (Note: I am providing these addresses for the
