While the games currently don't have sound (they're working on it), playing them does not require changing the settings, adding plugins, or any of that other crap that brings you crawling back to IT.
Some of our favorite games available now on the Console Living Room include: Galaga, Frogger, Asteroids, Pac-Man, and Donkey Kong. For a full list of cartridges and games, plus instructions on how to get them, visit the Internet Archive.
