It’s Monday, and you’re bummed because your awesome, badass weekend is over. Now you’re at work, counting the minutes until you can clock out and watch some Opening Day baseball. Let us help you pass the time in the best possible way: retro games! Free of charge! Completely on your browser! Sega Genesis! Super Nintendo! NOSTALGIA! DON’T YOU LOVE NOSTALGIA?
Techie note: Games play best in Firefox with lastest version of Java installed.
Super Mario World
Between the inclusion of Yoshi and that darn cape, a very real argument can be made for World being the best OG Mario game out there.
Between Aladdin and The Lion King, Disney really did its thing with 2D side-scrollers. Relive the glory.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2
Of course we’re going to include Sonic 2. Bonus points if you can collect every Chaos Emeralad before the work day is done.
Fun fact: you can’t beat me in Jam. Boomshakalaka!
Mega Man X
I may be in the minority, but I always preferred the ‘X’ series to Mega Man’s original.
Mortal Kombat II
GET OVER HERE!
Donkey Kong Country
Still very, very difficult.
Cult classic that still feels fresh.
To date, one of the greatest games of all-time.
