If you’re reading this article right now, you could be playing one of 900 classic arcade games. Jason Scott and the team developers behind the JavaScript Mess Project added 900 classic arcade games to the Internet Archive. All you need is a web browser.

The trip down memory lane started nearly a year ago when the Internet Archive launched ‘The Console Living Room.’ A wide range of old-school systems from the Atari 2600 to the Sega Genesis are supported.

The launch of the Internet Arcade is all part of the JSMESS project. The project’s goal? “Imagine every computer that ever existed, in your browser.”

The folks working on the JSMESS project want to make “computer history and experiences into the same embeddable object as movies, documents, and audio.” All in JavaScript.

The Internet Arcade has free titles ranging from Track and Field and Ghouls ‘N’ Ghosts, to Lode Runner.

Some of the games require a controller to play. Oh, and expect some bugs here and there. Browser emulation isn’t perfect.
