Do you like text-based adventure games? Have I got the site for you! The Interactive Fiction Archive is an awesome resource full of literally thousands of text games and related items:

"The Archive’s mission is to preserve the history and practice of interactive fiction and make it freely available to the public. Since 1992, the Archive has collected thousands of text adventures, text adventure development tools, articles, essays, hint files, walkthroughs, jokes, and sly references to Greek politics. It also preserves the history of IF institutions such as the IF Competition and IFDB. This cultural memory is one of the foundations of the IF community."

The games range from actually old to quite recent--people still make text games! I have fond memories of playing games from this site back in college, when I had crappy dial-up internet, lol.

Check it out!

Ah this looks cool, I do like text adventures a lot. I even setup an old DOS computer in my old house, mainly to play Zork and Monkey Island in its true context. The clacky keyboard screen glow really add to it.



Ugh I just wish I felt like I had the time to sit down and play some properly and the space to setup that computer again.

Oh wow, I didn't realize Monkey Island started as text adventures! :O

I never really got the hang of DOS, tbh; by the time I had my own computer Windows 95 had just come out so I only had to mess with it occasionally to play older games.  That's really cool that you have a computer specifically for that stuff though!
