I was never like a serious gamer. I’ve been into StarCraft (Star Crack) and Age Of Empires, Sonic The Hedgehog, Mario, and a few motorcycle racing games. I even worked at an arcade on the beach back in high school. But this news is pretty awesome. There go the weekends! And here’s the rest of the stroy from PC World.

Be Just And Fear Not


Late last year the Internet Archive branched out into video games, adding a section of the site called the Console Living Room that backed up early console games. What started with five systems—the Atari 2600 and 7800, the Magnavox Odyssey, the ColecoVision, and the Astrocade—has since expanded to include everything from classics like theSega Genesis to weird also-rans like the Watara SuperVision.

Like the Console Living Room, the Internet Arcade is an effort to archive and present these games through JSMESS, a project to emulate various computer systems through JavaScript. The benefit? The games can run right in your browser and thus don’t require any third-party software (like a standalone MAME emulator).
