It’s Friday and time to turn down the volume, scope out the cubicle landscape for the boss, and fire up some classic games right in your web browser.
Over at Nintendo8.com they have hundreds of classic 8-bit Nintendo games available for web-based play. You simply load them up, use your keyboard as a controller, and play to your heart’s content. You can also visit their sister sites Snessy (for SNES games), c64i (for Commodore 64 games), DOSDose (for DOS games), MasterSystem8 (for SEGA games) and GBemul (for Gamebody games). Among all those options you’re bound to find a title or two to burn up a Friday afternoon with.
