Being productive just got a little harder.
A massive collection of classic, coin-operated arcade games is now available to play in web browsers for free at the Internet Archive’s new Internet Arcade.
Approximately 900 games from the ‘70s, '80s and '90s are available for play, including: “Super Pac-Man,” "Millipede," “Q*bert,” "Bomb Jack,” and “Street Fighter II.”

"Obviously, a lot of people are going to migrate to games they recognize and ones they may not have played in years," Jason Scott of the Internet Arcade said on his blog.
Although the games can be played using a keyboard, some of the controls don’t functioning correctly when translated to browsers.
“Some are in pretty weird shape – vector games are an issue, scaling is broken for some, and some have control mechanisms that are just not going to translate to a keyboard or even a joypad,” Scott wrote. "But damn if so many are good enough. More than good enough."
