    DOS Games?

    I remember the days before computers, then the ones you had to run by inserting various disks for different applications, then the 10 meg hard drives - wow they were big then - so on and so on.....

    Anyone have any old DOS games anymore? On disks or perhaps a link to them online anymore?

    Oh man, I was just looking at computer games a few weeks ago and left with nothing, thinking to myself: Why can't I just find the old stuff I played in highschool?

    I've still got all my old games from my first power house PC.... A 486 33 MHz with 2 megs of memory, a Sony CD drive, 15K modem, and a unheard of 150 meg (later upgraded to a 1.5 geg with a 286 based controller) HD!!!! what a machine it still is... I also still have the 24 pin printer, N this computer got the kids through a lot of early school assignments.....

    Dunno if it counts, but I had the first version of Flight Simulator from Microsoft, for a Commodore 64 with an MSD "Super' disk drive (the old 5 1/4 inch floppies). Whole system is sitting in a storage unit I think.
