Classic Console Games Emulated

I can't imagine ever wanting to play some of these Classic Console Games Emulated, in my browser, but maybe I am just weird like that. I remember as a kid in elementary school, going to a buddies house and him having an Atari version of PacMan. This pixels were huge, and PacMan looked like something less then himself. My dad had one of the first console games, it was Pong. Now when I say it was a console, it was just that, with a few different versions of the game. I am proud to say we also had a PC computer, which I guess was kind of rare in those days, it had cost him $2000, had a monochrome screen, and was a turbo 8/12 mhz. But I am diverging from the topic.

Classic Console Games Emulated

The Internet Archive Console Living Room will allow you to play some of the old classic games, for free, on your browser. You can emulate classic games like Donkey Kong, Mario Bros., Asteroids, Dig Dug, and Pac Man among thousands of others. At the current time, there is no sound, but I doubt that this is too far off from the future, because all games emulators tend to get sound rather quickly, when there are more people interested in playing them.

You will be able to emulate the following game console systems:

  • The Atari 2600
  • The Atari 7800 ProSystem
  • The ColecoVision
  • The Magnavox Odyssey²
  • The Astrocade
  • The SG-1000

If it's anything, I only remember 2 of those systems, but if nothing else, exploring the games will be an adventure all to themselves. When they get the Commodore 64, that's when I will really start exploring. While an Atari system from the late 70s might be something most of you will think a token moment of enjoyment, I remember some games from my first gaming computer with fond memories. Classic Console Games Emulated will hold a momento of my past, but the Commodore 64 is the thing of dreams.

Precursor to World of Tanks

The Internet Archive's project is aimed at preserving a widely-unavailable software phenomenon, as the consoles and cartridges needed to play these games have largely disappeared. The rise of the home console, more or less destroyed the popularity of arcades, especially once console graphics began to approach the look of arcade offerings. And as each console evolved, the previous generations were tossed out or gathered dust.
