Microsoft DOS is a command line operating system based on QDOS, designed to run on IBM personal computers and first released in 1981. It saw continual improvements until it was superseded by Windows 95. Until the release of Windows 95, MS-DOS was the primary platform for PC gaming.
My family's first computer came with MS-DOS 5.0, which we later upgraded to 6.22 after its release.
Here are some of my favorite games developed for DOS.
- 7th Guest
- Castle Adventure
- Doom II: Hell On Earth
- God of Thunder
- Magic Carpet
- Master of Magic
- Raptor: Call of the Shadows
- Scorched Earth
- SimCity 2000
- Space Quest II: Vohaul's Revenge
- Swords of Glass
- Ultima VII: The Black Gate
- Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
- Wolfenstein 3D
These are applications I found useful during my DOS days.
