Remember all the blood, sweat, and tears you shed as a kid trying to get your poor family across the Oregon Trail. Remember how you slaved away at hunting all day, only to have your wagon break and loose half of it out the backend. Remember when little Timmy couldn’t stop breaking his leg? And the Ox you paid handsomely for died of dehydration? Remember how wonderful this all was? Well guess what – now you can relive these lovely memories at the click of a button.
Thanks to the Internet Archive nearly 2,400 different DOS games are available for you to play, for free. Its “Wayback Machine,” is a useful repository of home pages past that lets you see what’s been going on if you’ve been living under a rock the past 20 years. Links galore!
But what’s even more fun is how you can relive your childhood by playing old DOS games like Oregon Trail, Number Munchers, Masters of Orion, and much, much more.
Now – who will admit that they will stop what their doing, and totally go there to try your luck at Oregon Trail? Has anyone ever made it past the log ride on their first try? I dare you to not get dysentery.
