Return of the Original Oregon Trail

Pioneer living has never been so cool.

The iconic pioneer game made a triumphant return this week when The Internet Archive released over 2000 old MS-DOS games. Gamers have been rejoicing in 80s and 90s nostalgia since the online release a few days ago, which finally allowed them to play all of the lost gems for free.

Oregon Trail, which was often used to teach history and geography, is the top-viewed game on the archive, with over 170,000 clicks. Fair warning, though, modern computer browsers may have some glitches with the games.
