Game on: Internet Arcade takes you way back


I didn’t get a chance to write about this earlier this month when it was announced, but there’s still plenty to enjoy so I’m sharing it now: Earlier this month the Internet Archive announced an extension of their site that archived classic video games from the early years of arcade machines in what they’ve dubbed the Internet Arcade.

Many classic games are represented here, including Defender and Galaga, although some top marquee games, such as Pac-Man, are not. (Variants though, including one of my personal favorites, Jr. Pac-Man, do appear.)  There are hundreds of games in all, set up to be played in the browser, and although the controls on some are not completely ideal, there’s enough fun to be had here to bring back some awesome arcade memories.

Anyone got a personal favorite on the list?
