GameTap.com - play hundreds of your favorite premium pc, arcade and console games from GameTap's online gaming service.

GameTap launched in 2005 and was hailed as the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network, delivering games and video through a unique 3D desktop client. The client application, revolutionary for its time, was written in C++ using a custom 3D engine developed in house. Nominated for a technical Emmy (Outstanding Innovation and Achievement in Advanced Media Technology for the Best Use of “On Demand” Technology Over the Public (open) Internet) in 2006, GameTap won the Horizon Interactive Award, Best in Category: Video Games in 2007.
