    The Internet Archive just posted what appears to be over 10,000 Amiga games online. That’s a whole lot of retro.

    You’ve got titles like ‘Double Dragon,’ ‘Batman: The Movie’ and ‘Lemmings’ among others in the seemingly endless list.

    Still, if that number seems a little high, that’s because it probably is. Hall of Light, a website dedicated specifically to cataloging every game released for the system, lists 5,698 games total games, so chances are there are some duplicates on the internet archive list.

    Not to mention we can’t seem to find classics like ‘Sid Meier’s Civilization’ or ‘Dune 2’. The web-based emulator also seems to run really slowly on Chrome and Edge, so you might be better off downloading the game files and running them on your own emulator.

    Still, there’s a ton of fodder for you to waste away the rest of your day. Enjoy.
