|Introducing FastRoms - June 5, 2011|
Hey Everyone! If you haven't already checked out our newest site FastRoms.com make sure you do so! We have put all our knowledge and experience over the years
about roms onto that site. It has video previews for almost all the MAME roms, high quality front and back covers of most of the roms, and information on what all the symbols like (U) (!) mean directly written
on the site to help you find what you are looking for. It also has the companies who developed or produced the games including all the other games those companies made, as well as the genres of most of the games
and an advanced system that shows what games are similar to each of the roms. Just check it out and remember to bookmark it. We promise you won't be disappointed. Cheers!

Rom World supports the gaming industry
In an effort to help support the gaming industry, including all the hard working individuals who slave day and night to provide you with some decent entertainment, ROM World will never make protected games available for download.
We feel that by doing this, the quality of games, whether it be arcade, casino, or other form, will be improved because more money will be put into the creation of new games. While other rom sites may not do the same, we suggest you stay away from them to help keep the gaming industry prosperous. If you enjoy a game, buy it, we do! Below is the list of roms protected on Rom World:
Aliens vs. Predator
Dance Dance Revolution
Grand Theft Auto
Matt Hoffman's Pro BMX
Metal Gear Solid
Monsters, Inc. (Game)
Top Gun (Game)
I hope this also clears up a few things for those who were wondering why we have 30,000 ROMs and Mario rom downloads are no where to be found.
