Tired of that shiny new game console you opened up on Christmas morning already? Looking for gameplay that's a little more timeless? Maybe you just want to show your ingrate kids what gaming was like back when you were young. In any case, The Internet Archive has got you covered with dozens of emulated ROM images of games for classic game systems of the '70s and '80s running right in your browser.
The new section is an extension of the Internet Archive's existing Software Collection, which launched a few months ago with a limited selection of downloadable and browser-emulated games. The Archive has also long hosted downloadable ROM images for games from dozens of classic game systems through The Old School Emulator Center. There's also a healthy collection of over 4,000 classic PC shareware games and 2,500 PC-CD demo discs hiding among the Archive's massive collection.
