The Visual Video Game List was created in April of 1996 by Jack Alberts. Its purpose was to provide detailed video game information, coupled with pictures, into a dictionary-style format. While the VVGL itself was a failure, gathering info for only six entries and pictures for four entries, it appeared to be a popular site among the collecting community, being hit more than 2,500 times in its eight month run. Additionally, its format may be considered to have played a tiny role in the upcoming KLOV 2.0.
Thanks to the generosity of Lee Seitz, the VVGL is back online one last time. The directory-style format (too cumbersome for a mere six entries) has been removed to allow you easier access to the information contained within. Without further adieu, the VVGL!
Anyway, my most humble apologies to those who contributed material that was never used. Please do not think too harshly of me. RL job is RL job, after all. Tell you what: next time you're down my way, I'll make it up to you by letting you play my Gorf machine all day. Heck, I'll even let you win. ;-)
I need to thank Jack for allowing me to archive the VVGL. He worked hard on it and I hated to see it disappear. Not only does it contain techinical information, but also detailed gameplay descriptions and nice photos of the artwork. I believe these will be sadly lacking in the next release of the Killer List of Video Games. I'm not at all belittling all the hard work that is going in to it, merely pointing out it's aimed almost totally at coin-op collectors.
I regret that I will be unable to do more than archive the VVGL. I simply do not have the time to add to or enhance it. If you find any errors, misspellings, bad links or such, please let me know and I will correct them. Beyond that, I am leaving the list in the form it was passed to me.
