      How about Epic Pinball, Alf, and The Dinosaur Discovery Kit? I never did too much DOS gaming as a kid because my family didn't buy our first computer (a Mac...why oh why I'll never know...) until I was ten and my only gaming experience up until that point was on my Sega Genesis and a few friend's Super NES' and NES'. I also tried play any arcade games I could whenever we went to a place that had an arcade like Cedar Point, or one of our local Cleveland Putt-Putt places like Goodtimes which is no longer around but they had great putt-putt, go-karts, laser tag and of course an epic arcade.

      Swings 'N' Things was also another great putt-putt place in Cleveland with a decent arcade. Anyway, I really don't have much DOS gaming experience outside of the times I would go and stay at my aunt and uncle's and play games with my cousins on their computer although I didn't care too much for the computer until we had our first computer (like I said before it was a Mac...)

        The only ones I really remember playing were from school, Word Munchers and Oregon Trail.

                Some of the old DOS RPGs were pretty good. I'm especially fond of the Might & Magic series.

                      I can't believe no one has mentioned Return to Zork, or any of the Zork games for that matter... They were some of the best of all time!

                      Sigh. I guess I'm alone on this one.

                        Iron and Blood - Warriors of Raven loft is my favorite DOS games. Those days I saw my brother was playing this game on our first desktop PC.

                          I used to play lots of DOS games back in the early 90's - Wolfenstien 3D, Commander Keen, Oregon Trail, Raptor, Hugo, Space Quest, King's Quest, Duke Nukem, etc. I still have all these games on floppy disks and play them on DOSbox from time to time.

                          Wow, a post of mine from over 3 years ago. Almost feels retro.

                              The thread is old, but, I have to say DOS was the best. It might have taken a bit of work to get some games to run. But when they did, wow.

                                One of my favorites was Scorched Earth. Especially if playing with a friend.
