Join Pacman and friends at the Internet Arcade

Pacman

It’s some indication of the importance of Election Day to me that one of the biggest stories of the century went unreported on Michigan in Pictures yesterday. I’m speaking of course of the fact that on Monday the Internet Archive launched a web-based library of classic arcade video games from the 1970s through to the 1990s called The Internet Arcade.

The Arcade contains hundreds of games from early “bronze-age” videogames with black and white screens and simple sounds, to large-scale games containing digitized voices, images and music.

Many of these are playable in a browser. Click to start losing productivity before it’s too late!
