Andre recently wrote up a post on old school Apple and Windows operating system emulators on the Internet Archive. While exploring the vast treasure trove of ancient applications and games, I stumbled across a number of nostalgia-worthy games, like The Oregon Trail, Sim Ant, Castle of Dr. Brain, Bubble Bobble, and Conquests of the Long Bow: The Legend of Robin Hood. These games defined a major part of my childhood—it almost makes me want to break my leg or something so I can sit around all summer replaying them.
