Classic games can now be played on Twitter, by tweeting the URL the game user wants to play.



According to the Verge, the feature only appears to work for MS-DOS games right now.



Also, users can even embed the tweet, and thus, the game inside a webpage.



The Internet Archive added 2400 MS-DOS games earlier this year, preserving classic games by making them playable in your browser. The group's efforts have covered everything from MS-DOS games to titles from the arcades.



Retro titles like original Street Fighter, Metal Gear, Maniac Mansion, Oregon Trail and Doom are all available, with the only downside being that users had to visit each specific game's page to play them.



But not every game is well suitable to the platform, considering the dedicated hardware that used to be required to play these games.
