I thought this might be fun.

Please post links where available, or describe the game... if it is one that others may not know about.

My favorite PC games (before 3D acceleration and before win9x) are:

Cyber Empires http://www.abandonia.com/games/206/CyberEmpires


Acid Tetris http://www.acid-play.com/download/acid-tetris/

Raptor: Call of the Shadows http://www.3drealms.com/raptor/

XCOM: UFO Defense http://www.xcomufo.com/

Quake 1

Scorched Earth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorched_Earth_(computer_game)

Commander Keen: Goodbye Galaxy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commander_Kee...bye_Galaxy.21

So what are your favorite classic PC games? B)

Nice lineup! I never played descent, but I played terminal velocity. I actually got Descent3 from a vidcard purchase long ago but never tried it.

Which duke nukem was your favorite? I loved 2 but 3D was a bit...nasty at times. (can you imagine a woman playing that game? I did and liked...most of it, just parts made me wanna hurl.)

Nearly all LucasArts games! Starting from MI1:

Monkey Island 1

Monkey Island 2

Monkey Island 3

Full Throttle

Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis

The Dig

Sam & Max Hit the Road

One exception: Zak McKracken and The Alien Mindbenders

Now for some non-LucasArts game... MicroProse games!

XCOM: Ufo Defense

F-15 Strike Eagle II

F-15 Strike Eagle III

RailRoad Tycoon Deluxe

Red Storm Rising

F-19 Stealth Fighter

F-117 Stealth Fighter


Other than those... uhhh, I'm hard-pressed to remember...

What about those actually-old games that are runnable using ScummVM? A lot of them I discovered in WinXP days after I found ScummVM...

Yeah, for emulation I tend to use DosBOX. it's free and works well.
DOSbox runs all my MicroProse games real well. Even got Roland MT-32 emulation (after copying the MT-32 ROM files). But for LucasArts games (plus some others), better to run using ScummVM.

Hey, ScummVM's site will even point you to a free SCUMM-based game!
