Contribute to UVL since : 5th February 2005 (or before ?).
Why ? : Of course because I love video games. I noticed that Google often sent me to UVL when looking for informations on games little known. At the beginning, I used UVL to find informations for my own database (concerning every game I ever played), but I noticed my database was awful, poor and unpractical compared with UVL. I have now forgotten my old database and contribute to UVL.
