The Internet Archive Now Hosts Hundreds of Old School Arcade Games

by Stirling Matheson

If you don’t have a few old school arcade games that you love on a weird nostalgic level, I’m rather surprised that you’re reading Technabob. Now think about that game and how much you’d love to play it tonight. Of course, arcades are few and far between these days, and most of them have retired their classic games; leaving eccentric collectors to snap them up and hide them from the public in garages and basements across the country. It can be genuinely difficult to find your favorite (unless you’ve got a massive MAME install, of course).

Not anymore. The Internet Archive has just started hosting over 900 classic arcade games, in addition to the many old school console and PC games that the organization hosts. The best part is that they run in your web browser, so you can go play Commando, Frogger, Golden Axe, Tron or Galaga right now, right here. I’m not sure what you’re waiting for. There’s not really any pertinent information left for me to relay to you, so why are you still reading? I thought this was the internet, how are you this dedicated to making it to the very last full stop, even if there technically isn’t one?
