I had no idea about composers or whatever at that time - just wanted the music on CD. And that the sellers ebay name was ' jsoule ' did …

(I have done it on mine, and plan to keep it there for the next 30+ …

Re: What scary games require booze to take the edge off?

in Milliways
In a peaceful time long long ago, I remember trading in my boxed TES:Arena, floppy version(!), and a bunch of other boxed floppy games, for a boxed CD-ROM copy of System Shock 2 in a shop that specialized in used games and music(CD/LP etc).
