GameTap Web Player

What is GameTap Web Player?

GameTap is a French online video game service established by Turner Broadcasting System (TBS). Dubbed by TBS as a "first of its kind broadband gaming network", the service provides users with classic arcade video games and game-related video content. GameTap offers two subscription levels: a Premium subscription with access to the entire content library, and a Classic subscription with access to older console and arcade games running in emulation. GameTap now also sells games via the online distribution method. GameTap initially offered a limited selection of games for free play without a subscription, but this option has been discontinued.
