Play 2,500 MS-DOS Games On Your Web Browser For Free

An additional 2,500 MS-DOS games that can be played online in a browser have been released by the Internet Archive, many with manuals. You can play through the emulation feature of the digital library in your browser for free.

Internet Archive is a non-profit online archive that provides free access to digitized content collections, including websites, software applications / games, art, movies / videos, moving pictures, and millions of public domain books.

In 2015, the Internet Archive began adding MS-DOS games, adding to the collection periodically action, strategy, sports, puzzle and adventure titles such as Doom, Jurassic Park, Alone in the Dark, Prince of Persia, Mortal Kombat, Shadow Warrior, Duke Nukem 3D, Oregon Trail, SimCity, The Lost Vikings, The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard, Redneck Rampage, and much more.

“Our biggest update yet, ranging from tiny recent independent productions to long-forgotten big-name releases from decades ago.” The Internet Archive’s Jason Scott said in a statement.

You don’t have to download them as ever. The Internet Archive also provides an EM-DOSbox version that allows you to play something directly from your browser in the archive. If you choose, there’s an alternative to download them online.

You will have to do some internet searching before you get into the games to convince yourself to try titles that may sound familiar, but you don’t really know all that well.

The emulators can be sluggish, especially on older computers, as with previous MS-DOS games.

Another problem is the sheer size of some of the games as many of them originally appeared on CDs, making them good downloads to play in a browser.

You might want to try smaller games depending on your hardware and connection.
