Enjoyed playing MS-DOS games way back when? Well enjoy it right now — for free! The Internet Archive has laid out the many childhood-memories for us to play and re-live the good and bad moments of playing some of these games. Through the use of the EM-DOSBOX in-browser emulator, these programs are bootable and playable. However, it appears that this browser-based emulator is still in the beta phase so expect random bugs/issues [for now].

There’s Duke Nukem, Street Fighter, Burger Blaster, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Lion King, Chuck Yeager’s Advanced Flight Trainer and more, totaling to about 2,306 (according to their search results) MS-DOS based game titles ready to play in an engaging lesson in interactive internet care.

I personally am not too familiar with all MS-DOS games, I didn’t own my very own computer until the early 2000’s, but I’ve certainly grew up during that era of gaming. If you’re not familiar with MS-DOS at all, nows a great time to get your hands dirty and your brain working.
