I used to be big into gaming..way back in the day, before the internet. I think my last system was the PlayStation 2 which was new at the time. I don't have anything now other than a mini Nintendo (little cheap thing with the games built in).


Which honestly, I can't seem to get into. Its been hooked up to my TV since I got it but I bust don't touch it. No interest. I miss my Resident Evil,. Tomb raider, crash Bandicoot, etc but I don't wanna buy anything right now. Wondering if it is possible to just use my laptop and access those kind of games online..free? lol If so, what do I need to do? How do I get started? I doubt this but any help/suggestions would be appreciated. I am lost and dont even know where to begin. KI have seen a lot of games I played that were apps being played on people's PCs on youtube...How?

For playing console games on a computer you can use an emulator. There are a bunch of free ones. Then you just need to download ROMs, which are the games themselves, which you then open with the emulator.

You can also play a lot of old DOS games free through your web browser on archive.org:

MS-DOS (/ˌɛmɛsˈdɒs/ em-es-doss; short for Microsoft Disk Operating System) is an operating system for x86-based personal computers mostly developed by Microsoft. It was the most commonly used member of the DOS family of operating systems, and was the main operating system for IBM PC compatible...

Thank you. Everything I looked up was either telling me how you play the games on PC if u have a console, I guess syncing it or it was telling me how to build a gaming PC...This is what I was looking for. I did find Miniclip....which has a lot of the app games I play available to play through the browser but I wanna play real games...without having to get a console. Thank you

The link was for online games, not emulators.

Gamebar isn't an emulator. Windows doesn't come with one but Windows store might have some.

pcsx and pcsx2 and popular emulators for Playstation. The first is for playing Playstation 1 games and the second is for Playstation 2. You should be able to find videos about them on YouTube.

Ok... that's explains it. I clicked on the Pacman game first thing but it wouldn't play. Yea, I don't know what gamebar is or even half the crap in my start thingy so gonna go through everything today, remove crap, and hopefully get an emulator and some games installed 😁

When I go back upstairs.

Thanks

I heard of it once years ago when I first joined here. I know it was a way to have kik on your pc. But for some reason, I removed it and don't remember why.

I'll figure this out though. Im just now finding a bunch of stuff already on my laptop that I didn't know I had... for everything. Music. Video. Streaming. Everything. From Microsoft. So I'll look in their store for gaming stuff and check out the pcsx and pcsx2
