What is your favorite DOS game?

Post by frca »

Duke Nukem 3D is definitely the favorite one, but there were many others like Warcraft 1 & 2, Doom 1 & 2, Quake, F22 Lightning, Grand Prix Circuit, Summer & Winter Games, Prince of Persia 1 & 2, Tomb Raider, Liero, Skyroads, GTA, Comanche, Mortal Kombat, Jazz Jackrabbit...
Basically the regular classics.

I pretty much only had access to shareware stuff back in the good ol' days, but the ones that I remember most fondly were:

Scorched Earth -- an ancestor to Worms

Action SuperCross -- the precursor to Elasto Mania and ancestor of Trials

Epic Pinball -- Same Epic that would make Unreal Tournament

Seriousy too many to count. The series that were popular in the nineties that I played the most probably include Doom, Mortal Kombat, Prince of Persia, Rayman (only one main series game, but there were expansions too), Duke Nukem (II and 3D - never played the first one really), Warcraft, Heroes of M&M, The Need For Speed (again only the first one was released for DOS, but I played it pretty extensively), Skyroads, and a few far less known games.

There were also a couple of DOS games that I missed back in the heyday (or didn't dedicate enough time to), but revisited them many years later, already via DOSBox. This includes Supaplex, where I actually ground through all the 111 original levels, and Virtual Pool / Virtual Snooker.

I used to play Doom and a platform game called Alien Carnage (or Halloween Harry). Excellent games!

Well, among first-person shooters "Terminal Velocity" ranks at the top- in fact, among all of them.

If we were somehow stuck in 1999 DOS gaming I would not complain.

It's not for DOS, so no.
