Correct me if I'm horribly wrong, but I assume the "original Four Fat Chicks" are the admins of this board?

 

I'm looking for an old page I used to frequent when I was a teenager... I used to have the URL memorized. Something like fourfatchicks.com/games/online/List_of_Online_Games.html maybe? Anyway the domain has long since changed, obviously, so I can't find that list anymore! And while I'm sure most of the games listed have probably expired, I'm hoping some of them are still up so I can delve into my younger years for a while.

 

I think that list is where I first saw http://www.nobodyhere.com/justme, but maybe that's not the case. It was that kind of thing.

 

Anyway, any chance that page is catalogued somewhere?

Hello, onlinegamer. The original Four Fat Chicks passed the site over to One Roguishly Handsome Dude, but I do have an archive of the old FFC site. I will attempt to track down what you're looking for.

I still have that list. Steerpike, if you can't find it, let me know.

 

Meanwhile, there are other lists of online games. Here's one that's kept up to date: http://www.gameboomers.com/Fre.....Games.html

Thanks! I remembered something that might help, if you need to do a text search or something. One of the games was Planetarium, which is still up at http://www.beholder.co.uk/planetarium/ . 

 

And thanks Jen, but I'm looking for the specific list more for nostalgic purposes than to take up time. And I think this list must have been posted before Flash got popular, because they were more HTML games and involved point and clickers than arcades or RPGs.

That's it! Thanks so much-- I tried using the internet archive, but for some reason it wasn't working to load the main website. But yes, that's what I was looking for. Now to see how many of these are still up and running...
