Questions asking for help to identify and avoid pirated game software and hardware should be permitted.
The core problem with most questions that ask about piracy is that answering them would promote or support the actual piracy. In these questions, users are often asking for help circumnavigating problems that have been caused by the actual piracy. In cases ...
It's entirely possible that nobody who actively uses the site knows the answer to your question. If that's the case, there's not much you can do on this site to address that. Your next most effective recourse is probably to ask elsewhere. You can link people back to your question here if you want with the "Share" link.
It looks to me like answering ...
Ask your questions the same way as you could ask about recent games.
Create a tag if it's missing. You can provide all the context of the game in tag info. Make sure to use full official game name, it will help others to find your question from outside of Arqade.
If the game was remade or remastered under the same name, or if there exists some other game ...
The question was closed for a reason other than "being bad" or "lack of detail" it was closed because it is off topic.
As i'm sure you are aware, game identification questions without a screenshot are off topic, and that's exactly the question. Many off topic questions could be answered, but they are off topic, so it doesn't matter how ...
(... I was going to wait until we had a pets themed challenge, but couldn't resist.)
My newly hatched animal companion, affectionately named "Lil Buddy", in no-mans-sky. His daddy was so tall I didn't even come up to his knee, and this little guy will one day be even taller.
In case you really need it spelled out, that's me on the left. ;-)
'Pursuing Scrotus'. I know it looks like a promo image, but it was captured during the final encounter with the in-game screenshot tool. Unfortunately I did not make a version without the logo overlay.

I see no reason why you can't ask a question about a game that old -- after all, this site is purely about gaming questions, no matter how obscure or niche the game is.
Gaming.SE gets enough traffic that I think even if the game is super niche, you'll find someone answering it eventually, and you can just leave the question to stick around to gauge if others ...
I encourage you to add your expertise to any question where a potential solution exists, whether that solution is through homebrew or otherwise.
While those that want an "official" answer may balk at the notion, answers with alternative solutions are definitely welcome, especially moreso in the case of systems where official support has dried up.
The question in... question, was closed because it is off-topic. Game Identification questions that rely solely on memory are off-topic because there is no reliable way for a voter to verify that an answer is correct. It has nothing to do with whether or not the question is "good", it's just that this sort of question doesn't work well with the ...
No one asked but:

I have no issues migrating off-topic questions over to any of our fellow network sites that want them, but this is really a question for those sites respective metas. If such a meta is made, and the SFF.SE community agrees they want our Science Fiction & Fantasy memory based Game Identification questions then I'm more than happy to migrate them.
