        DOS games eh? Well, I think this counts...but I used to play Wolfenstein 3D years ago. I used to like it. I'm not sure if I ever did beat it though. I barely remember it and have no idea what happened to it. I remember I had to type in the DOS screen in order to load it.

        Hmm, I used to have a Jeopardy game too, which was about 1993 or 1994. I had other ones too, but those were obscure games, imo...so obscure, I don't even remember the names. lol


        Funny you should mention it because it's still fairly popular on the Internet. Wolf 3d actually reinvented the 1st person shooter genre and then Doom came along and improved on the system.

        And the Indiana Jones game was indeed badass. LucasArts had some excellent adventure games in the early 90s and that was no exception.

        There are some pretty good gems out there that aren't very popular. You shouldn't get what's most popular, but what has the best gameplay. Unfortunately some of these are ESA protected but if you look hard enough your sure to come across a few of these you can get.

                                Great choices!!
                                I grew up on DOS games. I remember playing old, old school DOS games where you had a choice on what four-color color-scheme you wanted: either baby blue, maroon, white and black; or green, yellowish orange, red and black.

                                  I have very faint memories of playing a Disney game that had a snake coming out of a manhole. Anyone know what game this is?
                                  There was also a puzzle game where you played as a mouse and there were two teams, red and blue. It was kind of like a maze and you had to get from one side to the other. Wish I could remember the name of it.

                                    I think I remember playing that game, but that was a while ago so I don't remember the title name.

                                    There are still many DOS games I've played but haven't come across playing them, because I either don't remember their names or simply because I have other stuff I have on my hands.

                                        Commander Keen (esp. 4), Hocus Pocus, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, Slordax, Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Blockout, Descent, and Tetris were among my favorite DOS games. But I also had some educational ones as a kid and some drawing programs on our first computer which was a 286 running MS-DOS 5.0. MS-DOS had some gaming gold on there. And it was stable, it never crashed like the computers of today.

                                          I'm 17 and I still had DOS games when I was a kid. One we had was NASCAR by Papyrus. I still have the steering wheel we bought for it and the plastic smell of it takes me back.

                                          In my elementary school, we had Word Rescue and Math Rescue. Anybody remeber playing these? As we got older, we figured out how to turn off the math problems and I remember finding a directory with people's usernames and telling the teacher that people were typing in curses as usernames. We even learned about Qbasic and Nibbles around third grade. This was 1999-2000; our school's computers were horribly outdated.

                                          We also used to have Frank Thomas Big Hurt Baseball.
