Stock your wagon, grab some extra yolks, and get ready to move at a strenuous pace, because your childhood is about to come rushing back with the help of The Wayback Machine.

The new gaming library, part of The Internet Archive, just made available tens of thousands of MS-DOS-based titles that you were obsessed with as a little tyke.

Not only will you be cavorting down memory lane towards Chimney Rock, but you can also hit up Duke Nukem, Street Fighter, Burger Blaster, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and The Lion King. Tears in your eyes yet? The archive writes that it’s a “software crate-digger’s dream: Tens of thousands of playable software titles from multiple computer platforms, allowing instant access to decades of computer history in your browser.” While you nod your head yes with enthusiasm, also try and account for the fact that each and every title is coming to you for FREE.

So, enjoy your daily dose of nostalgia, but remember, never ford the river – it always ends poorly.

This isn’t the MS-DOS version, but you get the point.
