this elicits the same problem i have with virtual console and game tap
i've been playing my favorite old games on my pc for years
without some website to charge me 6.99 to do it.
ehh... il rather pay a little for full support, easy download. i wouldnt mind paying for games if more services was like this.
I think the concept is getting these games to work on modern hardware/software.

I would certainly appreciate it -_-
... Far Cry runs just fine on Vista. I just played it yesterday, lol.
I just got my beta key... doubt I will be buying anything, but the site is nice.
