The 'Internet Archive,' an online software library dedicated to preserving culturally or historically important digital documents, has recently uploaded over 2,000 games from the Amiga PC. Amigas were a family of computers available from the 80s through to the 90s and they hosted some beloved games for early computer gamers.

Some of the titles in the Internet Archives' collection include 'Batman,' 'Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge,' 'Emerald Mine,' and 'Action Fighter.' The games' software has been fully uploaded to the site, so users are able to play them directly in their browsers without downloading any extra software.

Beyond Amiga, Internet Archive hosts games from other classic systems like MS-DOS and Atari. These restored retro games show the nostalgia people have for their imagined pasts.
