Internet Archive Lets You Run Old-School Software In Your Browser
Pitfall (Activision, 1982)
IA says that while some of the titles are important because of their success (eg, VisiCalc of 1979), others are notable for their failures (eg, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial of 1982). The list of software isn’t all that long yet--there are 28 so far--but we imagine the list will continue to grow as time wears on.

The Historical Software Archive is important both for the sake of remembering classic titles and also so that upcoming generations of computer enthusiasts and coders can explore tech history in a new way. Kudos to the IA (and all those who developed JSMESS) for this treasure trove.
What’s your favorite title from the list? Any fond (or not-so-fond) remembrances?
