Play Classic Atari Games Online For Free

Atari has released playable online versions of many of its classic games.  They're all free to access.  All you need is a web browser, which you simply point at www.atari.com/arcade.  The exercise is a joint venture with Microsoft to promote Internet Explorer, Touch, and HTML5.  Although none of the games requires a touch screen, you will find that they do work best in IE.

Relive your youth and head to www.atari.com/arcade

Wow. Win 7, IE 9. About 30 seconds into the first wave on Centipede, the controls jump outside the game window, and now I'm scrolling all the available games in the menu, not moving the little gnome-guy. Even better is the infinitely-repeating "bwoop, bwoop, bwoop" arcade soundtrack coming out of my speakers. Nothing short of killing all the instances of IE in Task Manager will stop it. (Not closing the IE tab, not closing IE itself...)

I liked Centipede back in the 80's, but this pretty much blows.

The controls suck. Combat got very choppy when too things appeared on the screen in my Mozilla's SeaMonkey v2.12 web browser. I guess you really need IE for it. :(

Works fine in Firefox with a logitech trackball. And I don't have to put in any quarters.

Will not load for me, IE8, pop up off, XP PRO. What version do you need to play.

What can you say when even a simple game like Pong is buggy and broken (ball disappears)?
