I am hunting for original English language releases (i.e non-budget release) of about two dozen random (i.e. they probably look random to the typical person) classic PC games, ideally in near mint condition. I am aware of budget re-releases of all of them, but I wish for original releases of them.
However my own long searches have turned up nothing in any condition, so I thought I would open it up to the floor so to speak, ask if anyone has anyone has randomly ever, seen original English language releases of these games available for sale anywhere and can remember they have?
For a bit more information. I have UK English language budget releases of all the above games (hence why I said that I am aware of budget releases of all of them; I've got them), but would like to replace/upgrade them to original release U.K and/or English language versions, if they existed (i.e the games weren't released straight to budget).
I've since learnt that The unholy and Karate 3d were most likely released straight to budget for instance. While I believe Xenic and Ancient dragon were most likely originally older Korean and Asian games respectively, released on budget ranges in English.
