Thank you to TechCrunch for this gem. Maybe it’s a desire to relive my misspent young or to show the artful game play of old games to a new generation. Either way this collection of over 900 games is now playable online in the Internet Arcade via a web-browser. This builds on The Console Living Room, which offers up emulators of ’70s & ’80s consoles in all their hideous glory.
Even with retro gaming currently being popular, I doubt this collection would have much use educationally, except for a way of analysing the game play of old games or reviewing the game from a modern perspective. Both of which are not likely to yield educational benefits that could offset the distractions caused by the games.
