Internet Archive puts classic 70s and 80s games online

Screen Shot 2013-12-29 at 12.01.18 PMClassic video games from the 1970s and 1980s have been put online by the Internet Archive and can be played within a web browser for nothing.

The collection has launched with games from five early home consoles, including the Atari 2600 and Colecovision.

The games do not have sound, but will soon, the Internet Archive said.

“In coming months, the playable software collection will expand greatly,” archivist Jason Scott wrote.

“Making these vintage games available to the world, instantly, allows for commentary, education, enjoyment and memory for the history they are a part of.”
