Through use of the JSMESS emulator system, which allows direct access to these programs in your browser with no additional plugins or settings, these games can be enjoyed again. Simply click on the screenshot or "Emulate This" button for each individual cartridge, and on modern browsers the games will just start to run. As nostalgia, a teaching tool, or just plain fun, you'll find hundreds of the games that started a billion-dollar industry.'s Console Living Room has launched, bringing a ton of classic games from the Atari 2600 and 7800, the Colecovision, The Odyssey, and The Astrocade.

These classic games are an important part of gaming history. I'm glad to see doing this to preserve them. Those cartridges won't last forever.

To answer your question, yes, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, A.K.A. the greatest game of all time, is playable.
