Continuing in our series on the Internet Archive, we have one of their newest sections, Software. This is definitely something your local library doesn’t have … unless it has an arcade, I suppose.
The Internet Archive has over 1 hundred-thousand software titles, including older abandoned applications and educational titles, but the real stars are the Internet Arcade and Console Living Room. Between both the Internet Arcade and Console Living Room, you’ll find over 2 thousand older arcade and console titles that you can play right in your browser!
From Defender to an Asteroids clone, you’ll be able to experience your favorite arcade classics without spending a single quarter. Looking for more nostalgic hits from your DOS or console gaming days? From Atari’s Star Wars to Rebel Assault, from Oregon Trail to Dune 2, from Super Street Fighter 2 to Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, you’ll find it on the Internet Archive, ready to relive your past in your browser for free.
Take some time to explore what’s available there. You’re sure to bring back some great memories, and don’t forget, they take donations to keep everything freely available. Next time? The Wayback Machine!
