    Retro games on the Internet Archive


    Hard to believe I put oh sooooo many quarters into these things back in the day. Have a look & play what we had back in the 70's & 80's. (Try not to laugh too hard )

    The Internet Archive, a non-profit working to build a library of the Internet, has added over 900 originally coin-operated arcade games to its site this week, all playable in your browser without any additional downloads.

    "A lot of people are going to migrate to games they recognize and ones that they may not have played in years. They'll do a few rounds, probably get their asses kicked, smile, and go back to their news sites," writes Jason Scott the man who put this all together, effectively destroying workplace productivity across the country.

    Last year the Internet Archive added a "Console Living Room" section, that included games from Atari and Sega.
    Internet Arcade : Free Software : Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

    The Internet Arcade is a web-based library of arcade (coin-operated) video games from the 1970s through to the 1990s, emulated in JSMAME, part of the JSMESS software package.

    Yeah, makes my head hurt thinking of how much money I probably dumped into those machines.

    Still, I do miss the all the arcades that used to be all over, great way to blow a Saturday afternoon (along with lots of $$$$$)
