Re: Old DOS games you still love
I started gaming at the very, very end of the DOS era and was far away from mainstream, but here are some titles that hold my neverending love:

- Slipstream 5000
- Blood
- Wolfenstein 3D
- Carmageddon
- Rings of the Magi

Re: Old DOS games you still love
I'd like to add +1 to X-COM, X-Wing, Star Control 2, Command & Conquers, Ascendency(!), and I'd like to also add X-COM Terror From the Deep, and X-COM Apocalypse (technically ran in DOS).

Re: Old DOS games you still love
Castle Wolfenstein the original (pre MS-DOS).  Apple it was t to throw grenades but if you played on an Atari PC you had to use 2 joysticks and could aim and move different directions so it was basically a 2 player control one guy thing.
Of course Beyond and 3D as well.

I have no idea what it was called but you flew dragons in combat.  Came out in about 88. 

Wasteland (Apple ][ GS so not really DOS)
Bards tale series (Apple ][ GS so not really DOS)
Eye of the Beholder (think this was one of the very first AD&D PC games)

Strike Commander
Links386 (golf)
Hexen (Doom spinoff)
Rise of the Triad (Wolf3d spinoff)
Xargon

Some shareware ones:
Commander Keen(sp)
Lemmings
Scorched Earth

Well I thought about adding it to my list, as well as WC4, but I think I already mentionned somewhere that I still enjoyed playing them.
(I try not to repeat myself as much as possible)

Re: Old DOS games you still love
I would say I feel old now but some of the people in here talking about dos games are older than me...
How has Keen, Hitch, Space Goose, Xenon and other such *real* dos, not "too lazy to port to win95" DOS games not been mentioned :<?

Re: Old DOS games you still love
Just about any space sim possible (I still can find some old registered versions of shareware titles, like gamma wing, recently preserved from 1994).

However, aside from the big guys (the wing commanders and xwing saga), those I also hugely like are:

EPIC (digital image design), a true wing commander contestant and doing a very good job at storytelling, AND mixing for the very first time space and atmospheric missions in one game (some say that WC3 will have used the idea from there).

INFERNO: the odyssey continues. sequel to epic: a true work of art I couldn't even describe! Try googling it or better still secure a copy.

And other oddities (I very much like psygnosis productions) like pyrotechnica, darker, or even a very fun tank game called assault rigs.

Of course terminal velocity along with their spiritual sequels (even though not dos based): fury3, it's add on f-zone (I could never figure out how the level editor included worked as my copy came without instructions), and hellbender.

and many others I couldn't even begin to list (including a lot of rarities very few persons have seen).

I got this from a bargain bin at some point but have never played it. It might be worth trying out. It does have some nice soundtracks on the CD.
