As much as we love playing old games, newer technologies don’t always make it easy to play them online or find people to play them with. One of the great things about the gaming community, however, is that gamers almost always find a way to get those old games working again. Now while I can’t make a list for getting every single game up and running on the net, I can provide some resources to get you started, organized by platform.

Arguably the greatest game of all time will be getting a re-release this summer, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Although the game is a masterpiece in its own right, Ocarina of Time has many innovations that have become staples of the video game industry.
