Classic, beloved vintage games like Tetris, Giana Sisters, Prince of Persia or Wolfestein 3D are a part of those of us who have more than 20 years. To many of us, these games really marked an era in gaming entertainment.

With the advent of PCs (and MS-DOS with it), many games became mainstream and were played around the world by kids and adults alike.

Obviously, these games became obsolete with the advent of video consoles and PCs but they still are in the backhead of many people.

MS-DOS Vintage Games Collection

Archive.org, a non-profit organization devoted to preserve websites, software, audio, etc. along their history recently created a new collection of those legendary DOS games. The collection includes action, strategy, adventure and other unique genres of game and entertainment software.

 

The best part? you can run them right from your browser, thanks to the EM-DOSBOX emulator software, a project devoted to emulate MS-DOS games using JavaScript. The project is still in development but is very stable nonetheless.

Console Games Too!

This is not the first time that Archive.org brings back to life console-based vintage games, such as Pac-Man, Arkanoid and Galaga. Around November 2014, they published a collection of games for gaming consoles, such as Atari, Amstrad and the like.

At that time, they adopted JSMAME, part of the JSMESS project, devoted to create Javascript-based emulators for different vintage gaming platforms, akin to the beloved MAME but inside a browser and using JavaScript.

So what are you waiting for? Open up a new browser window and start playing your favorite childhood games! Or, if you’re a bit younger, you also can discover the greatness of those games now.
