Click here to play!

A disclaimer: not all of these games are entirely functional (I tried to play Maniac Mansion and the cursor was glitchy, and it made the game unplayable). Still and all, this is totally radical.

Hahaha, the first one I launched has a manual check for DRm. I used to own the game, but naturally, I no longer have the manual. :p

DRM sucks donkey balls.

Damn this is cool as hell. Too bad my laptop fucking sucks ATM.
I can't remember where this verse is from, I think it got removed from canon:

"I don't hang around with mostly men because I'm gay. It's because men are better than women. Better trained, better equipped...better. Just better! I'm not gay."

For context, this is the previous verse:

"Hi Jesus" -robvalue

I only recognized one of them, Digger. Clicked it and it proceeded to keep telling me who the top scorers were. Weird.

I tried "Wolfpack". There was a popup advising that the game wanted to disable my cursor.

You can search any game title you want. It might not come up, but I found a few SNES and Sega titles. Maximum Carnage being the one I'm excited about. I was sad I couldn't find DragonBall Z: Hyper Dimension though. We didn't get Dragonball Z titles in the states when these systems were out, so I only know them from when emulators popped up.

Yeah, that's what happened when I tried playing "Maniac Mansion". I later discovered that you have to let it do so in order for you to use your mouse properly in games that have mouse functionality. Pressing ESC will restore your normal cursor.

I have encountered other games that don't work correctly. "Castle Wolfenstein" runs at about 3 billion FPS, for example. It's using a Dosbox backend, but I don't know if it is in any way configurable to correct for issues like this.
