I don't know why but for me that doesn't sound new.
I've played DOS games on archive.org over a year ago already, don't know why now this is new...
Maybe I missed something.

Just read the article again.. I think it says that 2500 NEW were released... If you check the page it says a total of 6,938 so it already had over 4000 games.. that's probably what I remember.

Seems they're mostly windows 3.1 games, which is new!

by then no one will remember GTA5.. That's like playing one of the old Zork text adventures today.... :P
They probably would have to emulate a 2D display surface just to run ancient software like that! ;)

Do have any idea how hard it is gonna be to phase shift a 4D cube display to generate a flat two dimensional surface just to fracture the picture in a way that it can be thrown on a nearly flat picture?
Pff.. the length some people expect future generations to go to support graphically inferior so called "Games"... *shakes head*
