Insufficient Funds: Virtual Apple

Insufficient Funds is a regular post in which we feature a free, or very close to it, piece of media that you can enjoy without overdrafting your bank account. So if you're low on funds, stay tuned to Cerebral Pop every Friday morning.

As technology advances, new ways to preserve the video games of the past continually emerge. Virtual Apple has collected almost all Apple ][ and Apple IIgs games for play in your browser. I played a lot of Oregon Trail in the computer lab of my elementary school, but there were plenty of other classics that graced the Apple. From Pirates! to The Bard's Tale, there are a bunch of great games to kill your boredom.

I'm sort of wary to feature sites like this, as it is usually unlikely that they have all of those pesky legality issues wrapped up nice and neat. While a lot of these games have probably crossed into public domain territory, there could still be someone holding the rights to some of them. Either way, I figure I'll just let you decide your own morals.

And besides, I care more about preserving games this old if they are so obviously forgotten. If anyone still owns the rights to any of these, then obviously they aren't doing much with them. So I recommend giving yourself a nice education in the Apple gaming of old, by hitting this link right here.

All credit to Jasmine over at Bitmob for pointing this site out and helping me kill a Saturday with some Oregon Trail. What are your favorites?
