After Pong, the next hit video game was Asteroids. Soon, more and more companies began creating video games and video game consoles.
With technology changing so quickly, games and consoles came and went. But if you’re nostalgic for the old-school video games there’s a website where you can still play them on your browser.
Where classic video games live on
On Internet Archive Video Games you can find more than 2,000 games that date back as far as the MS-DOS era. You’ll quickly find out that the games you remember betray your age bracket. But who cares?
You can play classics like Doom, Duke Nukem, Warcraft and so many more in a browser setting. This feature is great because you likely no longer have the original game console.
Name a game and somebody will remember it fondly. One that certainly brings up happy memories is Oregon Trail. The game taught kids how pioneers lived and ventured to the Pacific Northwest.

But don’t think Oregon Trail is some “Little House on the Prarie” game. Teams of pioneer players had to overcome various hardships such as diseases and the natural elements along the way to Oregon.
On that note, if you have kids make sure you monitor which games they play. Even games almost 30 years old still have adult content.
And be prepared for the kids to make fun of the games you loved. When bigger titles such as Doom and Warcraft first came out the graphics were considered state-of-the-art.
Compared to the beautifully rendered graphics of today, though, you might be startled at how dated your favorite games look now. Once you start playing, however, you’ll feel like a kid again and have a great time.
The best thing about this site is that you can find a game the whole family can enjoy. Mario Kart, anyone?
