This effort is part of Internet Archive’s campaign to preserve classic video games from all types of formats, i.e., arcade, computer, console, and others.
Classic Arcade Games
Internet Arcade gives you a plethora of coin-operated games that you would play at classic arcades and pizza joints. The coolest thing is you don’t need to worry about having a pocket full of quarters.
From Atari’s 2600 and 7800 to Sega systems, and even some systems you’ve never heard of – all are available! Relive the Mortal Kombat excitement, or the first time you played PitFall. Also, if you have fond memories of the Atari, check out the Atari Arcade.
Internet Archive recently brought almost 2,400 classic MS-DOS games. And who doesn’t want to relive the glory days and play Oregon Trail?
