For those unaware, the Internet Archive is a non-profit digital library that provides free public access to collections of digitized materials, including websites, software applications/games, music, movies/videos, moving images, and millions of public-domain books.
The latest update allows players to play around 2,500 MS-DOS retro games including action, strategy, sports, puzzle and adventure titles such as Doom, Jurassic Park, Alone in the Dark, Prince of Persia, Mortal Kombat, Shadow Warrior, Duke Nukem 3D, Oregon Trail, SimCity, The Lost Vikings, The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard, Redneck Rampage, and much more.
Since 2015, Internet Archives has been tirelessly working to preserve old classic titles. In 2016, it even added titles from the Windows 3.1 era. However, this time around it has added the biggest batch of titles ever, with over 2500 games from the MS-DOS era.
Jason Scott, Internet Archive Software Curator, wrote on the site’s blog: “Another few thousand DOS Games are playable at the Internet Archive! Since our initial announcement in 2015, we’ve added occasional new games here and there to the collection, but this will be our biggest update yet, ranging from tiny recent independent productions to long-forgotten big-name releases from decades ago.”
While not every game runs perfectly especially slow downloads on CD-ROM games, it is still a great way to relive the classics from the ’90s.
To check out the latest additions, you can head over to the Internet Archive, or go to the main MS-DOS page for the entire collection.
