Gamers the world over have always had to deal with one crucial problem: work. You see, gaming is an expensive hobby and most people would rather use legal tender to purchase games, instead of just outright stealing them (that’s what PC gaming is for, right?). Alas, many gamers have jobs that allow them to pursue their hobby within the boundaries of the law, but that can also have a negative effect on the amount of time they have for the act of gaming itself. Not anymore, because with a neat little plug-in for the brand new FireFox 3.0, you can game wherever your little heart desires.
All you need to do is head on over to the plug-in’s download page and download the FireNES application. It takes just a few seconds to download and install, and trust me, it’s well worth it. Restart your browser and then click on the ‘Tools’ tab, and click FireNES. What you will now see is a list on the left-hand side of your screen with every single NES game ever created. Click on any game of your choice and a perfect emulation, complete with original 8-bit soundtracks, is at your beckon call. That’s right, over 700 8-bit classics at your fingertips, for absolutely free. Now, I’m not sure how the legality of a program like this works, and to be honest, I don’t really care because they’ve found a way to make this happen and that’s all you need to know.
So the next time you’re at work and you’re feeling a little “bored” by your daily duties, just boot up some Mega Man 2, Metal Gear, or Super Mario Bros. 3 and save the world… on your lunch break, of course.
