You can finally forgive your parents for making you throw out all your old copies of Nintendo Power

Thanks to the website archive.org, you can now relive the magazine’s glory days by paging through old issues online—for free.

While not every issue of the classic gaming magazine is available just yet, you can browse in order through the first 145, dated between 1988 and 2001. Perhaps even more exciting is that the issues can be downloaded in a variety of formats, including Kindle, PDF, and ePUB. 

While nothing after issue 145 is uploaded to the archive yet, we suspect that archive.org intends to complete its collection in the long run.

Go ahead, spend the rest of the day (or week, or month) paging through strategy guides for The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros. 3. We could hardly blame you for indulging.

Update 3:52pm CT, Aug 8: Issues of Nintendo Power are no longer available on archive.org. The Daily Dot has reached to the Internet Archive for more information about the collection’s removal.
