For those old enough to remember video games when pixelation reigned supreme, here is something that should bring back good memories.
The Internet Archive Console Living Room features hundreds of games from five systems (Atari 2600, Atari 7800 ProSystem, ColecoVision, Magnavox Odyssey, and Astrocade). The best classics seem to be listed, including Donkey Kong, Planet Smashers, 3D Asteroids, Space Fortress, Turtles!, and G.i. Joe – Cobra Strike.
Through use of the JSMESS emulator system, which allows direct access to these programs in your browser with no additional plugins or settings, these games can be enjoyed again. Simply click on the screenshot or “Emulate This” button for each individual cartridge, and on modern browsers the games will just start to run. As nostalgia, a teaching tool, or just plain fun, you’ll find hundreds of the games that started a billion-dollar industry.
Note that there is no sound yet. The feature will be added soon.
