Retro Gaming Collector - essentially it's like Super Adventures in Gaming but with videos instead of a blog. Games are played on original hardware and neatly categorised according to platform.

Theodor Lauppert's Game Gallery and Download Central are apparently down. They are still accessible via the Wayback Machine:
http://web.archive.org/web/201108240309 ... .ws/games/
http://web.archive.org/web/201108202037 ... entral.ws/

However, the file archive of the Download Central appears to have not been preserved.

I've just noticed that Demu.org has got a new look. Apparently, this is Demu v2.0 which has launched recently:
Demu v2.0
2015-04-23
New website has launched.

Welcome to the next version of Demu. With the new site I've focused on making it easier to browse the collection. There are several search filters you can use to quickly narrow down the results. Take it for a spin and see what you can find.

A big change in this release is the capability to mirror content from multiple collections. This way I can mix multiple collections in this portal to include the most files. For example the Tucows mirror collection has over 32,000 vintage Windows 95 files.

Finally, The Internet Archive now has embed capability for their online gameplay. Collections which are set to be streamed will support that functionality as well here.
