Vidya radio that's divided by game rips, chiptunes, remixes, covers, and everything at once. Specific genres don't get dedicated streams, but each song is voted on by users so it usually isn't too sporadic.
Blogging site that was popular when blogging was popular. There are still blogs from over a decade ago that are fun to read, and there currently aren't any upcoming anti-consumer updates that look like they'll clean the slate, so things are good here.
Ancient scrapyard of Windows XP-era desktop ricing. It's safe enough to assume that nothing featured here will run on modern software, but I personally have had an easy enough time adjusting things I've found here to my setup. I use fvwm btw.
Windows 93's arch nemesis. I'm not sure how things are now, but I remember finding this site through a shill post on Bindowzuchan / Bonzichan that shat all over Windows 93 and claimed that Poolsuite (then Poolside) was better. The presentation is definitely better than stock Windows 93, and the built-in music and video playlists are cool, but there are like a jillion less features here than on Windows 93. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO even though the site is still cool.
Half personal site, half web browser benchmark. For a site that's meant to be compatible with every web browser in existence, regardless of how limited some browsers can be, it's surprisingly stylized.
Website demoscenery aside, this site has pretty entertaining and interesting content on it. It's mostly centered around old compy stuff and vidya, which I would assume is an interest of whoever cares enough about this list to make it this far down.
Site that I stole the landing page Bill Gates pentagram from, as well as an overall cool site. The dude running this site, Nathan, reviews OS GUIs, hates Internet Explorer, loves Mozilla, and makes Doom levels.
Useful site for determining whether or not your site is bloated. Underneath the calculator is an article that goes over the history of internet bloat, as well as a formula that can be used to manually calculate the score in case the built-in calculator isn't working. Very considerate.
The abandoned website of TEN, an old school online gaming network similar to DWANGO. Although the service is dead, this site is surprisingly still up out of the volition of the original owners, with the website's landing page going over the service's history and aftermath. More old sites should receive this treatment.
The presumably abandoned personal site of Xaser Acheron, who might be the most interesting person in the Doom community. My second site layout pretty much copied the layout from here because of how cool I thought it was.
Gaming and TV focused website run by at least two different dudes. Each dude has their own subdomain on the site, but the main site itself is like a collaboration between the two where they mostly review vidya. There are some cool shrines here, as well.
Another website of a shut down online gaming network that's somehow still up. This one shut down in 2013, which makes it a kind of snapshot of what most mainstream websites looked like right before flat design destroyed skeuemorphism.
There are a few subdomains on this site dedicated to specific games and series such as:
The seemingly abandoned site of zer0, a Swedish cartoonist. This place hosts two web comics and the official Francis E. Dec fanclub, which seems to have every documented Dec rant besides Hangman Rope Sneak Deadly Gangsterism.
The official website of Shrak, an unofficial expansion pack for Quake from 1997. This website isn't completely dead, but the domain goes in and out of working so often that it's usually hard to tell. The bottom of the homepage had 88x31 buttons and a visitor counter on it until 2001.
This site also serves as a really good example of how sites were decorated before CSS became standard. Even if you look at the site with w3m, it'll look good as long as images are enabled (gifs won't move though).
