Windows 9x Games (10)


1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-11-28 22:40 ID:O/FmKQDE

What are some essential games for Windows 9x? I'm thinking about building a vintage gaming pc specifically for these mostly forgotten games that rarely work on modern PCs.

A gaming Pc running Win95 in 95 would run entirely different games (Dos-based or very simple Windows ones) than one running Win98 in 2000 (Win32 directX and likely would run in WinXP too)
Probably pick whichever you like

I'm probably gonna get a Win98 machine, as it would probably play everything Win95 can offer, + more advanced games. With that being said, what are some standout games for Win95 or 98 for me to tinker with?

Lego Island 1 (maybe 2), Roller Coaster Tycoon, and Day of the Tentacle.

There's more, but I'll have to wait until I get home to check.

Archanoid. That game was like, the first video game I ever witnessed.

A good hardware emulator for DOS - Win 9x era software including operating systems is PCem. Can go up to a AMD k6 III+ although it's more realistic for a Pentium MMX 233 to run on your hardware due to the limitations of emulation. A high clock processor is recommended for the host machine.

Have any other recommendations for emulators then? Trying to figure out QEMU

>>8 You must know about DOSBox already. Was there something about it you didn't like? Personally, I'm still trying to get it set up in a way where I can just give it a path to a game and make it run. I'm glad it uses "exclusive" fullscreen rather than that borderless crap that's getting pushed so hard these days, but I still don't have a monitor that can take proper advantage of it.
