The Nostalgia of the Old DOS Games
Well, these are just some of the great DOS games of the past and most of them may have already been forgotten or abandoned. And yes, these are old school games. Maybe these are the games you used to play on your Pentium PC.
These old games may not have super great graphics or sound, but they are also fun enjoyable and can be very nostalgic, allowing for many hours of game time. You don't need to worry about connecting your PC to the internet, or paying something online or seeing a bunch of ads on your game.
It's too bad we can't install these old school games directly on our fast computers. However, we can use DOSBox to install and run them. DOSBox is a DOS emulator intended to run old DOS games on fast computers.
