Internet Archive making over 2,300 MS-DOS games available online for free
 
This is pretty cool: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...icle-1.2068467

The legality of this is debatable, but it shouldn't be an issue because the Internet Archive is a pretty reputable organization.

I was playing around with a few yesterday, not too bad, I came across the registered version of Wolf 3D, not too sure if they have ids permission on that one but seems that majority of games are either freeware or abandonware.

However, game + DOSBox = not obsolete. At this point they're providing something for free which other companies are still selling.
