How all this happened After seeing various Neocities pages host a links page to various cool sites, and some pages like Neonaut's Freeware Games Page of Excellence listing cool games, I wanted one of my own and decided to add one to my website. It started to grow over time, I added more sections, and it grew into more or less this.

As for the Kits, when I started to get into Doom mods, I decided to organize everything I needed to play in a single folder. I then did this for other FPSes, partially inspired by seeing Something Awful's Early FPS Megathread. Eventually, I decided to add that to the site, as a way for others to easily get into this, as well as to highlight the cool stuff that's out there. Then I decided to expand the idea outward to other things that have a lot of community resources.
