Re: Old DOS games you still love
im supprised nobody mentioned quake.
I don't remember Quake being DoS.
Otherwise, yeah that game is win too.

dos with an additional win95 optimised exe if i remember right

i still have my original quake cd. it comes with a dos exe, but a batch file to run the game under windows with networking support. it was still loading the dos exe, but also loading a network interface driver simultaneously. winquake and gl quake came out later, which were windows exes.

I actually went to the length of making terrans, vasudans, and shivans in it a while ago.  Sadly, the terrans couldn't reproduce fast enough and got wiped out by the competition.  The shivans got STD's, and the vasudans took over everything. :(

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.

Yeah that game was cool. Pick a crate for 2 minutes looking for the plans, only to find saurekraut instead. And those SS guys were pretty fearsome.

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

Joust?

Oh another one of my favourites, Ultima IV Quest of the Avatar. Not exactly a Dos game, at least when I played it. But it was awesome.
Oh another game from the Apple II era I loved was Rescue Raiders. Too bad our copy of the game was buggered and would crash out on stage 4 or 5

There's a delicious irony buried in there somewhere. :D

Zod Scum will never achieve that goal in reality. I'd rather catch shivan aids.

^ Zod-hating noob, zods pwn terrans b/c fishes

Anyway... Nethack. Awesome little ASCII game, and one of the best roguelike games. Think D&D, with a random generator as the GM.

Also Descent, Quake II, Doom, a number of assorted text games (Star Trek ones are awesome)... DOS games pwn. But Nethack is what I'm really into (besides FS) right now.

Definitely wasn't joust.  Joust came out way before this.  This was a 3d flight sim but instead of flying planes you flew a dragon and used your breath and claws as weapons.  

Found it.  Was newer then I thought.  1990.  DragonStrike.

No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside
