Free Alternative to Good Old Games

Kotaku posted a story yesterday about the launch of Good Old Games.  There’s no doubt that I love classic gaming, be it playing NES games on my Wii or old PC games.  If the price is right, Good Old Games could definitely make some money serving a niche market.  However, if you’re cheap like me, there is an alternative that won’t cost you a dime.

If you happen to actually still have a pile of old game floppies (and a drive to read them), you might want to check out DosBox.  DosBox is a PC emulator with DOS that focuses primarily on allowing you to play old DOS games.  It is free and open source, so it supports a variety of different platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.  If you’re enough of a geek to buy old PC games, you’ll probably want to check out DosBox too.
