WASHINGTON, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- The non-profit digital library offering free access to books, movies and music, The Internet Archive, has given Internet users access to 900 vintage video games.

The Internet Arcade includes games from the 1970s through the 1990s and includes games like Galaga, Street Fighter II and Frogger.

The Arcade launched quietly over the weekend after it worked out many of the bugs and finished the improvements. They are still accepting suggestions for improvements.

"[E]arlier this year, I decided to futz around with our build environment [which, it must be absolutely stressed, the other JSMESS team members built, not me], just to ask the question, 'And how hard would it be to build arcade games, anyway?'" Internet Arcade operator Jason Scott wrote on his blog. "It turned out to be easy. Very, very easy."
