900 Retro Arcade Games In Your Browser

Thanks to Archive.org and emulation software that works through JavaScript, you can now play 900 retro arcade games. Isn’t it cool to play all your childhood favorite games in your browser? Remember you use to play these games on your super computer of the time? Now you can play them on your browser or on your low end smartphone. Technology has progressed and I never imagined that much processing power in my watch.

Jason Scott , who combined the MAME and JSMESS projects, had this to say about “The Internet Arcade”:

Of the roughly 900 arcade games (yes, nine hundred arcade games) up there, some are in pretty weird shape – vector games are an issue, scaling is broken for some, and some have control mechanisms that are just not going to translate to a keyboard or even a joypad. But damn if so many are good enough. More than good enough. In the right browser, on a speedy machine, it almost feels perfect.
