“The Internet Archive, a wonderfully obsessive nonprofit located in San Francisco, is best known for its massive collection of educational and ephemeral films. But it has another, more sinister agenda: It’s not only out to destroy the burgeoning arcade-bar industry, but also what little social life you may have left.
It’s doing this by launching the Internet Arcade, a collection of 900 arcade games from the ‘70s to the ‘90s playable right in your Internet browser. The collection includes classics like Galaga, Street Fighter II, and your various Pac-Man spinoffs as well as more obscure games, and while there are some gameplay issues that still need to be worked out, seriously it’s 900 arcade games for free. ”
