    Some other good ones in there too. The elder scrolls daggerfall. The first need for speed game by road and track and Microsoft flight simulator also the first one i think.

    Even productive workers have lunch breaks :D


    Oh I started work at 6am today, and it's not that busy every day :D


    Yeah but... no. That phrase isn't really popular anymore... in China probably.

    No problem when you are in IT muahahaha!

    On a serious note though, some games seem to play like utter crap. You'd be better off just downloading DOSBox.

    Yeah, I was wondering this too. I'm guessing everything on their list is abandonware.

    I occasionally replay old games for the nostalgia, but do it with enhancements for modern graphics and controls. Still, it'd be nice to revisit some select titles - I'll have to bookmark this for future consideration.

    Bryan Lunduke made a short video about it, and he didn't had a clue about the legality of it.
    Just play those games while they are there.

    I have a folder on my disk called "All DOS games ever made" that's like a terrabyte big :p I still play DOS games on a regular basis, and go full OCD with them by setting up "the perfect" sound emulation with Munt (MT-32) and Sound Canvas VA (General MIDI), running in the DOSBox core of RetroArch with CRT emulation shaders and whatnot.

    (Yes, I know I need professional help :D)

    Sounds like you have LGR, 8-Bit Guy and Techmoan on your subscription list on YouTube.

    Well, my prescience worked. Who am I kidding, it was a shot in the dark.
