    If you spent hours getting dysentery, cholera, and measles while playing "Oregon Trail," you’re in luck.

    Fans of the MS-DOS game can now play it at the Internet Arcade, which has added more than 2,000 others.

    Such 80s and 90s classics now available for play include: "The Lion King," "Street Fighter," "Indiana Jones," "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" and "Prince of Persia."

    The massive collection of games can be played in web browsers for free at the website, which is provided by the Internet Archive.

    The site already unveiled hundreds of games back in November, like: “Super Pac-Man,” "Millipede," “Q*bert,” "Bomb Jack,” and “Street Fighter II.”

    Although the arcade game controls have been adapted to keyboards, there are a few glitches users may experience during gameplay.

    “Some of them will still fall over and die, and many of them might be weird to play in a browser window, and of course you can’t really save things off for later, and that will limit things too,” Jason Scott of the Internet Arcade said on his blog. “But on the whole, you will experience some analogue of the MS-DOS program, in your browser, instantly.”

    The Internet Archive is best known for its Wayback Machine, a time capsule of the internet that allows users to see what websites looked like years ago.
