Perhaps you fondly remember the days when 64 meant 64 kilobytes, not 64-bit and you had an opinion about whether the Trash80 or Commie64 was the better machine? Well, for better or worse you can revist those days thanks to the Internet Archive. The upload of over 15,000 peices of software and an emulator include not just classic games but the old zines and various bits of software that were created by that generation. Some memories will be wonderful, some may be best left unexplored. Thanks to The Inquirer for pointing it out.
"The Commodore 64 becomes the third in-browser collection after the Commodore Amiga and a range of arcade games from LCD pocket to full cabinet were released over the last few years."

Looking for some cutting-edge content to test out that lightning-fast graphics card purchase? Well, this might not fit the bill. However, if you have a mind to check out a vast library of software from the legendary Amiga computer system, the Internet Archive has you covered.

The software plays via an in-browser emulator, and there are also links to download the related files (Amiga Disk File, images, etc.) so just about any system can play these old games. If you're interested head on over to Archive.org to access the library.
