The console living room – experience old school console gaming and relive the late 70’s technology from the comfort of your home computer.

The Internet Archive Console Living Room has revived the revolution of the home video game console system.  Back in the day when the television was transformed by gaming consoles into a center of videogame entertainment.  Go to https://archive.org/details/consolelivingroom and experience the beginning and evolution of the video game console market and understand the lineage that makes today’s systems what they are.  From the Atari 2600 up to the mid 90’s just before the playstation took the market by storm, you can follow and play many of the original systems and games in all of their 8 bit glory.

Back in December of 2013, the Internet Archive (in their effort to backup the entire digital world, one bit at a time) launched a “Console Living Room” that offers up browser-friendly emulators for a pretty shocking number of consoles from the 70s/80s.  Be aware that these aren’t all perfect and seamless conversions into your web browser, but minus a few bugs and having issues with sounds working this is an amazing compilation of games and there are NO quarters required.  Try it and see for yourself how far technology has come and relive the glory days of the classics.  At least you can get a laugh when you see what they looked like back then and you can compare it to the GTA V in 1080p on your PS4.  Just be sure to note that if your playstation 4 system gets an error or blue light of death while trying some of the new games out there to check out www.VideoGame911.com for a repair of your video game console system.
