Nintendo in a Browser
By Nicholas Solter on Feb 14, 2008
I’ve just discovered a wonderfully effective time-waster: vNes. You can play every single game from the original Nintendo Entertainment System right in your browser! Check out Super Mario Bros, Contra, Metroid, and my all-time favorite: The Legend of Zelda. The original music is there, and even the Konami Code works! The only functionality missing is support for saving games and, of course, the controller (though the keyboard functionality works OK).
Firing up these games brings back visceral memories of the year or two as a kid in which I spent way too much time front of a Nintendo.
