Yes, I know, I haven’t written anything here in forever. *throws confetti*
The Internet Archive (if you didn’t know already) is a non-profit library to catalog and provide public access to digital collections–such as software. In late December, Jason Scott uploaded a mega-dump of software and classic games to the archive. As mentioned in his announcement, not everything is going to be perfect; some things may be buggy and/or unplayable.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t be excited and try anyway, right?
The full collection can be viewed here. I’ve combed through and made a list of titles I recall playing, thanks to my father’s love of computers and games.
- Oregon Trail (we used to play this on Macs in elementary school)
- Paperboy 2 (used to play it at a friend’s house… I sucked hard at it)
- Wheel of Fortune
- Bouncing Babies (this one contributed to early /raging)
- Win, Lose or Draw
- Duck Hunt
- Where in the World in Carmen Sandiego (deluxe version)
