No Dos games will run directly on Windows 7.

But use DosBox (from http://dosbox.com ) to easily run them on Windows 7, Mac, Linux, etc. See the thread in the Getting Games to Work forum for detailed instructions:

Or if you are just looking for something to play, try searching for freeware windows games on google, or free to play games on Steam or gog.com.

If you have a specific dos game you are trying to play, post it in Getting Games to Work and we'll try to get you setup. Especially if it's from this site's own downloadable games list!
