That looks like an abandonware site.
Games that are so many years old are usually discarded by the companies that make them and they become "abandonware".
A lot of those games will require moslo (a program to run old dos games because XP does not have dos so it emulates the old dos.)
Always virus scan any old games you download of course, but there are tons of them out there.
Some of the older games are some of the best ones IMO.
Read up on abandonware, and find a good site that explains moslo and how to use it, and then plan on losing yourself for a long time in all of the old
school games that are still being played.
As a side note, I have been playing with abandonware for many years because I grew up on a lot of the old games, and I have not had any problems as
long as I do a virus scan first and look around before downloading. There are places out there where viruses lurk, but if you find an abandonware ring
or hub with several members, they actually do care a lot about the games themselves and see these abandonware sites as almost a gamers museum.
