The Best Classic Video Games Online

We are complete suckers for nostalgia and we can't help but tip our proverbial hats to those sites that have managed to bring us some of the best games from our childhood. Whether they're classic casino games classic Nintendo games or Gameboy Online, the internet is a veritable treasure trove when it comes to blasts from the past.

Not all games however are built the same. While most developers do their best to create flash versions of our beloved classics, most seem to fall short when it comes to quality or game play and are unable to emulate that old feel.

Some of the best games that can be found on the internet however include;

Contra

We all remember Contra and we just couldn't get enough of it. It is one of the very few classic Nintendo games that have been successfully transferred to the internet. No matter how great the graphics get, we will never forget where we started and that was aimlessly jumping over ricks towards a destination I can barely even remembers.

Pokémon

Who doesn't remember playing Gameboy? You were officially one of the cool kids on the playground if you had this little gadget in tow. Pokémon is what defined our generation and your Pokémon catching capabilities were hat defined your popularity in school. While there are much more than 150 Pokémon today, we just gotta catch' em all on its online Gameboy version which has managed to recreate the same magic on the computer.

Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening

No article about classic Nintendo games is complete without a shout out to the Legend of Zelda. Link was our most constant companion in those days when you had little else to do but play Gameboy. It's dangerous to go alone, better take a little bite out of the past with the online version of this classic.

Super Mario World: Yoshi's Island

It was a toss-up between the original super Mario brothers and this golden oldie. We can tell you for sure that the final decision was not entirely impartial. We remember playing this one for hours on end as Yoshi kept changing colors for extra powers. Plus we can never get enough satisfaction from wiping that annoying smile off of Bowser's face. Luckily, we got a chance to do just that on its online version which is not a far cry from its original. Developers have actually done a pretty good job of making it true to the original.

Mortal Kombat

What better way to let off steam after a hard day at school then by punching someone's head right off their shoulders? Mortal Kombat was immensely violent but times were simpler back then and we thank God for that or we wouldn't have this amazing game to remember. The online version is just as good. So head on over and claim your flawless victory.
