Hundreds Of Amiga Games Just Became Playable For Free

I have no shame in admitting that one of the best parts of my childhood was being able to visit a family friend’s house, purely so I could nerd out with them on their Amiga 500. It might have been the lower end of the Amiga line, but good God did that machine have some quality games.

But if you missed out on that classic gaming platform, don’t worry. The Internet Archive has got your back.

You can check out the list of Amiga games here. Hundreds of classic PC games have been archived too, including some really classic demos for games like Halo: Combat Evolved, MotoCross Madness, Midttown Madness 2, Quake 3, G-Police and Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines. (They’re not playable in a browser, but you can get them going easily enough with DOSBox.)
