PostSubject: Free 70's and 80's arcade games collection   Fri Dec 27, 2013 9:44 am

I was reading through the BBC news website and came across a top story explaining that a large collection of nostalgic arcade games have being put online to play via a browser for free, I thought considering the amount of people who play games here, that the link to the site might be appreciated. I included the BBC link as well.


Quote :
These games are best enjoyed in an up to date version of a modern browser. Currently, there is no sound in the games, although that feature will be added soon. Please read carefully regarding key mappings of the games and programs, to use them in your browser.

Thanks!  I lived through the eighties, so was there when these games came out lol!  If you like nostalgia gaming then you need to go to good old games (gog.com) and try out what is there.  They are not free (though some are) but they are dirt cheap, even within my meagre budget.

That's not nostalgia. It's called 'memory' Razz

Last time I messed with reliving my childhood via old arcade games emulated on my PC, I used MAME.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAME

You can Google MAME and find lots of sites that have the MAME emulator, for example:

http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/arcade/mame.html

The key is finding the ROMS, or images of the software, for the old arcade games that run on MAME. They're not too hard to find (or at least they used to not be). I've got them archived somewhere on some old CD somewhere in the attic. Very Happy

Yeah ... every time I travel and find an old Galaga box I get a thrill. Other than that, I have no time.
