Computer Game Spotlight

Now, to be perfectly frank, I'm not a huge gamer. I'm not really good at computer or video games, and I'm not really a good sport about things I'm not good at (hey, we all have things we need to work on). However, I learned something pretty exciting today! We all had computer games we loved as kids, games that we can no longer play because they are literally too old. Well, don't fret!

If you were a kid in the 80s/90s I have some great news for you! Internet Archive (the one that does a lot of the books) has released over 2,400 MS-DOS games for you to play for free on your modern browser! So, go ahead. stop whatever you were doing today and delve back in to the pixelated graphics of The Oregon Trail or (my personal favorite) Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego.  Get excited internet friends. Now if only people would take the time to recreate games from the early 2000's!
