The Best Arcade Ever Now Exists in Your Web Browser

int arcade topJust imagine all the quarters this would have saved you had this been released twenty years ago. Better late than never, The Internet Archive has launched The Internet Arcade; a project that aims to give the public access to hundreds of classic arcade titles, many of which have never seen commercial releases beyond their original cabinets.

I haven’t been able spend a ton of time on the site, but it seems to work splendidly. The few rounds of Amidar and Rally X I had the chance to play were just as enjoyable as any I had played on some console compilation or MAME cabinet. It even supports some gamepads and joysticks, which is phenomenally cool.

So go ahead and treat yourself to a few rounds of Mappy in between the seemingly endless hours of office drudgery. If you happen to find any noteworthy hidden gems in the collection, feel free to let us know about them in the comments section below.

Stay classic!
