QBasic Games Directory, now officially open!
Nice work! Some suggestions though:

Can you put a thumbnail of the screenshots on the same page as the description? Also, maybe consider using doubled (640x400) or stretched (640x480) screenshots for 320x200 games.

An option to search for whole words only would be useful. Right now the search matches partial words, so if you search for "tent", you get matches with "content", "potential", "nonexistent", and "extent".

I realize it's kind of late for the next suggestion, but it would be nice to have additional info for the games, such as OS required (some games are Win9x only, some DOS only), whether XMS/EMS is required, graphics mode (text/CGA/EGA/VGA/SVGA), input devices supported, number of players, etc. I know this would be a huge task to go back and run all the games again to get this info, but maybe sometime in the future if the site gets revamped you might consider it.

And a last minor thing, "VDMSound Patch" on the extra downloads patch should be "VDM videoport patch".
