MORE THAN 900 RETRO ARCADE GAMES REVIVED ONLINE

arcadeThe Internet Archive, a non-profit that seeks to back up pretty much everything in the entire digital world, has made more than 900 classic arcade games playable in your browser. The site explains, “The game collection ranges from early ‘bronze-age’ videogames, with black-and-white screens and simple sounds, through to large-scale games containing digitized voices, images and music.”

They include a whole host of popular, coin-operated video games from the 1970s through the 1990s, such as Pac Man, Galaga and hundreds you may not have even heard of before. In some cases, the games’ controls didn’t transfer very smoothly to the keyboard and some files are missing sound, but there are definitely enough working games to keep you entertained for a while.
