Atari Arcade – Play Classic Video Games For Free

Did you own an Atari game system once upon a time? Did you play Atari classics on other gaming systems? I know I did. I’m a huge fan of Centipede.  Well, now you can play your favorite Atari games in your web browser!

If you use Internet Explore, the games are playable ad-free, if you use a different browser there’s a short ad before each game.  To get started you can just click Play Game, and a random game will load. Or you can select the game you want to play off the left side menu. Mousing over the menu will let you interact with it. If you have a scroll wheel mouse you can use that move the menu up and down. 

Once you’ve selected a game to play, you have option to Start Game or you can click Controls and see how to play the game. I’d definitely recommend that you learn the controls before play. All that’s left now is to play the game!

I feel I should issue a warning: You can waste a lot of time at this site. I played Centipede, Pong, and Asteroids all afternoon without meaning to.
