The Internet Arcade

There’s no better productivity killer during the work day than playing video games. Only problem is you can’t lug that Xbox One or PS4 with you to the office. You can however gain access to over 900 of your favorite classic video games, with nothing more than an internet browser.

The aptly titled Internet Arcade is a massive web-based library of arcade games. From Astro Blaster, Street Fighter and Galaga to Paperboy, Marble Madness and Commando, this massive collection encompasses countless hits from the 1970s through to the early 1990s. Admittedly, we’ve had problems getting some of them to work, with but with so many options, we still think this free service is well worth a recommendation. It’s also worth noting that some of these gams will have to run through a boot-up sequence, and many of them do not use mouse support, but none of that matters during an intense session of Golden Axe. So reschedule that productive work day you had planned, and let’s get to the good stuff. Check it out here.
