I recently found a CDs and diskettes that contained some old DOS games. Even today they are still great if not better then the games we have now. I would pick Doom 2 over Halo 2 in a heartbeat.

My favorite games are Doom, Doom 2 and all expansions, Duke Nukem 3D, Star Quest, Dune 2000.

I had these games because we use to install them on computers at school and play them over LAN in class.

What do you think are the best DOS games and your personal favorites?

Cyberia by far. It had first person shooter, third person action, and crazy brain puzzling with an actual storyline.

and for pure dos cheesyness, good ole leisure suit larry(thanks Sierra)

Eh? Isn't Cyberia for XP?

posted on Apr, 21 2006 @ 11:03 PM
Nope sorry, 1994 dos platform


You coulda at least just typed dos cyberia in a search window sheesh.

thats fairly newer than alot of dos games though, considering good ol leisure suit larry started out in 1987. It even came with a cocktail napkin from Lefty's, Home of the original lounge lizard.
remnants of the cheech and chong and aerosmith albums.
