2,400 MS-DOS Games Are Now Free Online (Some of Them Are Porn)

Let me see if my favorite strategy game Populous is in there


Quote:
The Internet Archive just dumped nearly 2,400 old MS-DOS video games into an easy-to-navigate repository. Every single one of the games is free to play in your browser. Some of the games are classics. Some of them are hilariously obscure. And some of them are porn—which is something you probably didn't realize existed on MS-DOS.

The first thing you'll notice when you dive into the new MS-DOS game library is just how impossibly large it seems. It's got everything! Street Fighter II? Yup. Sim City? Uh huh. Duke Nukem 3D? Of course! The new additions build on previous Internet Archive projects that brought hundreds of arcade games and loads of free software to the web.

For the sake of your busy schedule, we've selected some of our favorites from the new archive—which also pulls from existing archives like Moby Games. Again, all of them are free to play in your browser. And again, some of them are porn.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

No idea how fun this one is, but Harrison Ford's face is staring at you for the majority of the game.

Street Fighter II

Play: https://archive.org/details/msdos_St...ighter_II_1992


Back to the Future Part III

Play: https://archive.org/details/msdos_Ba..._Part_III_1991

Sim City

This one is also just as classic now as it was when you were in school.

Softporn 2

This descriptively titled game is text-based, so you'll need to have a good imagination.
Play: http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/softporn-ii

SeXoniX

This descriptively titled game is definitely not text-based, so NSFW.
Play: https://archive.org/details/msdos_SeXoniX_1994

Wow Street Fighter 2 is soooooo broken! The characters jump higher than the top of the screen! This is why us cool console kids beat up people who played games on PC back then. They got the games they deserved.

Also, is there a way to enable sound?

I tried Wolfenstein 3D, Moon Patrol and Last Ninja 2. The sound was already working for me.
