If you were kids in the late 80’s and the 90’s you’ll remember the good ol’ days of the classic MS-DOS games like Prince of Persia, Aladdin, Street Fighter and Metal Gear. But now with the help from good people at Archive.org there’s now a way you can play those games again on your browser. There are a number of classic ms-dos games up for a while now and might have less problems than it had before.
As a kid growing up these were why we took extra computer classes after school. Those days are long gone and the games were long forgotten. Now you can just open up your browser and choose one of the games you want on the site and the emulator will begin. Then you can play classic ms-dos games as you did or the old folks used to when they were kids. That includes me too haha.
Archive.org now has 2605 classic MS-DOS games that you can enjoy in your browser through the browser MS-DOS emulator. The archive is searchable and you can sort the games from popular and alphabetical orders.
Software for MS-DOS machines that represent entertainment and games. The collection includes action, strategy, adventure and other unique genres of game and entertainment software. Through the use of the EM-DOSBOX in-browser emulator, these programs are bootable and playable. Please be aware this browser-based emulation is still in beta – contact Jason Scott, Software Curator, if there are issues or questions. Thanks to eXo for contributions and assistance with this archive.
So if you’ve got some time to spare then go check out games for the nostalgia like:
- Prince of Persia
- Oregon Trail, The
- Super Street Fighter II
- Disney’s Aladdin
- Metal Gear
- Doom – The Roguelike
- Dangerous Dave
The Prince of Persia, Dangerous Dave, Street Fighter, Disney’s Aladdin were one of my favourites. So it’s nice to know I can play them when I want them from a internet browser. What are your thoughts about this, let us know in the comments.
