900 Classic Arcade Games Are Now Available to Play in Your Browser
Nerds and fans of classic arcade games rejoice! The folks over at Internet Archive have uploaded 900 classic games that you can play right in your internet browser. No quarters required.
Head over to The Internet Arcade and get no work done today.
Booting up any of the games is quick and easy, but not all are guaranteed to work. These versions are emulations of classic games, and as such some of them run into scaling, control, or other technical issues.
One of the creators behind the project, Jason Scott, wrote about the effort that went into the Internet Arcade.
“Obviously, a lot of people are going to migrate to games they recognize and ones that they may not have played in years,” Scott wrote on his blog. “They’ll do a few rounds, probably get their asses kicked, smile, and go back to their news sites. A few more, I hope, will go towards games they’ve never heard of, with rules they have to suss out, and maybe more people will play some of these arcades in the coming months than the games ever saw in their ‘real’ lifetimes,”
