There are 100 games in 10 minutes videos for several platforms in YT. However, I haven't seen such a video for DOS games so it felt like an interesting project to fiddle with. Games are presented in a random order. Just to be clear, this is not my top 100 DOS games list. There are several reasons why these game were chosen to be in the video:
1: The list is mainly based on my personal history, what games I have played on PC and not other computers such as C64 or Amiga.
2: Many of these games reside permanently on my HD and I also have recordings of some games so I didn't have to install every game to capture 6 seconds of video.
3: I didn't want to spam only one genre or games with sequels similar with the original version. There are tons of great adventure, RPG and strategy games for DOS and I could at least do a 50 games list for each of those genres alone. There are not as many good puzzle, platform or shoot 'em up games when compared to aforementioned genres.
4: Many games were released for both Amiga and DOS. I preferred to demo DOS exclusive / original games, instead of games with an almost identical Amiga version.
5: There was an attempt to include many of the most important titles, but also less famous games worth trying.
Music was recorded with SGM-V2.01 soundfont from the following MIDI files: UFO: Enemy Unknown - Geoscape alternative (trimmed the beginning and the end), Magic Carpet - Intro (part 1), Mission Critical - End Credits (trimmed the end).
Could I ask for some help? When my father bought me my 1st PC in 1995, there was a game installed in in. Idk remember the name, just remember its has Persian theme, with flying carpet. The character is a cat. I would appriciate if any of you know the name of that game
Thanks for uploading this, I got a real kick out of watching the whole thing. I played and LOVED Xcom, still do, what a game.
I also played Sam and Max hit the road and loved it too. One you don't have that I played is Kings Quest 7, great puzzle game I played with my mother. I was 6 or 7...memories :)
I'm tryinf to remember a game where the intro screen had the main character of the game that had something triangle in his head. The game was kind of a 3D laberynth where you controlled this character. The camera was like from a 45° angle. Can someone help me?
This only proves that games did not change. Just the graphics. The game types and styles were set a long time ago. The only onnnnllly type of game that they didnt have is mmo concept and the moba mmo type of games. I always get sick hearing ,when a new game comes out, that they have a new idea or concept or anything new about it. In real they bring nothing new
Does somene know that game, I think it was called CUBE, where you press on square with numbers 1 to 6, and with every press the number grows by one, but when it is six and you press, you go to 1 and expand to surrounding squares, and conquer area like this, playing against others.. I cant find it.
The first golden age of gaming, wonderful memories!
And then we had the second age (1999-2005) once Unreal Tournament arrived and modding came along with so much. Ending with the likes of Half-Life 2, Vampire Bloodlines and Battlefield 2.

Theme Park was the first PC game I ownded.It came free with my IBM Aptiva 486 SX 33 in 1995. It had a 270 mb hard drive, a 2 speed cd rom drive, 4MB of Ram and a 1/2 meg grapics card.Not forgetting the floppy disk drive,of course :)
I can't believe how many DOS games I played in my childhood. Off the top of my head, these are some other memorable ones - Gods, Lotus, Captain Comic, Commandos, Diablo 1, Lost Vikings, Redneck Rampage, Age of Empires, etc
Rest well this night for tomorrow you set sail for... the kingdom of Daggerfall!
Where the fuck is Daggerfall?
It's okay, I forgive you since included so many Bullfrog games...
But where the fuck is Ultima 7?
Loved it, I have played most of them, Magic Carpet, what a game!!! it have an awesome magic system, and you fly around the world in a... magic carpet, you can have your own castle and fortify it with defenses and soldiers, all while flyring in your carpet, its like and open world fps, but it have tooons of things to do, besides it goes by a quest system in some sort of "stages"
I was too little to remember how they worked, but sometimes you could keep the castle, and sometimes you just had to start over in a new land, and invaded by other magic carpet's users (AI). It was amaizing.
One of my favorites for sure. I have lots of videos from the first game. It's mostly about killing monsters and collecting mana to pass a level. It's a bit like an arcade game in that sense. Many levels have some gimmicks to figure out, but overall it's more of a sandbox and there's not lots of variance overall. Second one does quests and specific objectives a bit better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bANf0CXO0S8
With the limited resources games developers had to compensate by using creativity and great ideas, now it seems like the other way around. Thinking of the hours I spent flying caves in Descent, running around with Jagged Alliance and Syndicate, shooting pixels and feeling like being IN Star Wars with X-wing, tie-fighter and Dark Forces. Man, Great Times. Not much consuming, way more exploring (and trying to find the right settings for EMM386 in your AUTOEXEC.BAT)
