    Yep - certainly do...

    http://www.back2roots.org/ has LEGAL stuff for the Amiga to download (including old commercial games that they have gained permission to distribute).

    http://www.factor5.com has a couple of old Amiga games to download for free (and you can download disk images of the Turrican games IF you own the originals too)

    I believe the little green desktop - at http://www.atari.st/ - also has legal downloads - though you'll have to double check that one.

    And the excellent http://www.lemon64.com has plenty of stuff for the C64 (and you've got to love those t shirts!)

    just make SURE that what you're getting is legal, and people aren't just assuming nobody cares anymore.

    Yes - though C64 emulators and Atari ST emulators tend to be easier to set up the WinUAE... For PC stuff you can try:

    http://www.the-underdogs.org/

    But they have a mix of so called abandonware (illegal) and games which they allegedly do have permission to distribute so as directhex says you have to check which are which before you download.

    http://retrospec.sgn.net/ might be worth a shout too. It contains freeware remakes of plenty of classic games.
