Kids of The 90's Something Awesome Just Happened

Old MS-DOS games are easily some of the most neglected classic titles out there. Oh sure, a few old PC games like Doom or SimCity are still remembered today, but most have sort of faded into the fog of time, even though we all spent countless hours playing them.

Well not anymore!  Because if you were born anytime before 1990, you have got something awesome to celebrate.  That's because a shotgun blast of nostalgia is coming straight to your computer screen, free of charge.

Well, get ready for a potent nostalgia blast, because The Internet Archive has just put up amassive collection of old MS-DOS games that you can play directly in your browser. No need to set up DOSBox or find and install any files, just click and play everything from Duke Nukem 3D, to Lost Vikings to Oregon Trail. Based on my browsing there’s also things called ANAL – The Rectum Adventure and Tongue of the Fatman, so uh, yeah, browsing the Internet at work is about to become a lot fun is what I’m saying.

Been a long time my old friend...too long!

So press play on your NWA cassette tape, break out the Ecto-Cooler, and throw your mouse out the damn window.  You got some keyboard only first-person shooters coming your way.  You can check out The Internet Archive’s MS-DOS collection right here, and feel free to share your memories of the golden age of PC gaming below. Unfortunately I won’t be able to reply because I’ll be busy playing Island of Doctor Brain.
