    Play Warcraft 2 on your browser
    Play Command & Conquer Red Alert on your browser

    There's a bunch of other games, including Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, Carmen Sandiego, Ultima, pretty much all the classics. The same guy also runs online emulators for Sega, SNES, and NES. The java applet is extremely stable and the libraries are immense.

    I shared over facebook and figure I'd make a thread so the rest of you can enjoy these. My only wish is that it had multiplayer.

    Stopped reading here, The jabba runtime environment should be avoided at all costs. Only place it has nowadays is inside a VM connected to a DMZ to run shitsco config professional.

    That's bad enough but letting it access your browser is just asking to be fucked in the ass.

    Best use the desktop version.

    I'm not too worried about it, it's just one guy and he seems legit.

    Might have to loosen your security settings. If all fails the guy who runs it troubleshoots on his facebook page, I'm sure he'll help out if you shoot him a message.

    I've seen this same site set up with ssega.com. Didn't know there was other sites like it for different platforms.

    Good stuff, Oobie.

    Better off getting DOS box, although those games are a bit too "new" for me, what about Kommander Keen or Jazz Jack Rabbit? Ah the hell with it-

    http://games.co.za/commander-keen.html

    There's also Descent, which may make you horribly motion sick- Abuse is another old dos game which is well known but easy to get. Anything from Sierra which is the grand father of PC RPGs, but they were so hard and convulted you needed a strategy guide to even have a hope of winning them. Like Police Quest, Space Quest, Leisure Larry Quest, King's Quest, they really liked the word quest.

    Descent is the shiznit. I'm convinced it was one of the most ingenious early 3D games ever made. I think I made a thread somewhere about my hard-on for it.
