The game "Skyroads" is fucking great. It has excellent music, too. The only thing that could possibly make it more perfect is if it had a level editor.

ITT, discuss favorite DOS games, including, but not limited to, Skyroads.

Cave Story is a DOS game?

4 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-10 17:48 ID:Heaven

Well, not really, but it felt like one to me.

5 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2005-12-11 00:30 ID:Heaven

There are so many great DOS games: Civ I, F119a, the Zorks, any LucasArt game, Alone in the Dark, Out of this World, Wolf3D, Duke Nukem 3D, Xargon, etc, etc, etc.

I regret that many younger gamers won't ever have a chance to play them.

Monkey Island I & II!

7 Name: Qarcade 2005-12-12 08:42 ID:Heaven

I got game :)

Why do I remember Skyroads very fondly... why do I not remember anything about it at all? Goes to Google


You left out Full Throttle, Jill of the Jungle, Jazz Jackrabbit, any Commander Keen game...

9 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2005-12-12 22:39 ID:Heaven

Full Throttle = LucasArt game.
Jill of the Jungle was mediocre in my opinion.
But I can't believe I forgot the Keens. O.o

BTW, was I the only person who found Commander Keen 5 a letdown after 4?

10 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-15 15:19 ID:c30dC8xe

Sam & Max !
And dont forget Stunts

11 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-15 19:52 ID:Heaven

Moraff's World

12 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-15 19:57 ID:Heaven

Stunts FTW!

13 Name: Linus 11 2005-12-16 07:35 ID:qkwsJuTZ

OMG, the old LucasArts games were THE BEST, X-wing was extremely hard, but I loved it still.

Commander Keen still rocks,

Anyone remember Dig-dug or Digger I think is another game? I want those games T__T

I remember the original Red Baron by Sierra for the 286, that's what got me hooked on gaming.

TIE Fighter rocked my socks.

Missile Boat FTW.

15 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-16 23:47 ID:2RYD7cNA

Anyone successfully gotten Stunts to run under Dosbox, or any similar emulated environment? I enjoyed that game a lot, but now I can't play it. :(

16 Name: THRILLHO 2005-12-16 23:57 ID:OG57cFKz

The King's Quest series ftw

17 Name: Linus 11 2005-12-17 01:14 ID:qkwsJuTZ

>>14 Oh yah, TIE Fighter was better than the original X-wing. Although I played that in the collector's series (win95 version) So I thought it didn't qualify to say in this thread.

But yah, Missle boat was nice. Just that I'm not the type of person who likes to use warheads often since you have limited ammo for those, and reloading takes FOREVER when you run out.

TIE Advanced all the way for me though. Enough speed and laser power for anything, and a warhead load for the unlucky surprises.

Jill of the Jungle, anyone?

20 Name: Tac-Tics 2006-01-29 23:48 ID:ZqTPGs/4

Daggerfall. The first RPG I played. It was amazing. Hundreds of different monsters, spells, dungeons. It was like an MMORPG before the Internet came to be. The world was so large and they thought of everything. You could become a vampire or a warewolf, enchant weapons, join guilds.

Hell, the actual story line was optional. I never actually beat the game, but there was so much else to do, it didn't matter.

21 Name: Anonymous 2006-02-02 11:46 ID:3mUiycEO

Inherit the Earth: Quest for The Orb. 'Nuff said.

22 Name: Indigo Korin 2006-02-02 15:22 ID:GgogfhER

Darkland (kinda like baldurs gate)
F-19 (Flight sim)
Xargon Trilogy (2d action)
Raptor : Call of the Shadow (Shmup)
Colonization (THE BEST strategy game in the world)
Monkey Island!!!!
Commander Keen (2d action)
Stronghold (strategy-rpg)

23 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E 2006-02-03 06:06 ID:Heaven

Every try the sequel, F117A?

24 Name: Indigo Korin 2006-02-04 04:29 ID:nOKAV53w

>>23 oh yes, even better, but for some reason, F117 Much heavier >.<, F-19 Much more agile

Taking me back to the late 80s early 90s here....

The Hugo games- You was like an adventure game and you solve puzzles. I can't explain it. But it was fun. Kind of like something sierra made but more low budget.

Covert Action- It was like 24 before 24 ever existed. Hmm...should I infiltrate this embassy with the Beretta M9 or the UZI? tough call...NOT! UZI 4 YOU!

Chuck Yeager's Air Combat- Just because it lets you fight Stukas with MiG 17s...

Wing Commander - Before it got all lame...Wing Commander was THE space flight sim. Spirit ruled.

Silent Service II- I stayed up for HOURS and HOURS past midnight trying to sink the Japanese Subs....Especially the nigh mythical yamato class....

Budokan- It let you dry different martial arts and was reasonably accurate. I loved jump kicking people in the head.

Elite- NO old PC game list is complete without Elite. Hehe...I remember evading the cops while smuggling guns and arcturan megaweed.

X-Com- The flying suit and plasma rifles were awesome. So were the autopsies...

man...they just don't make 'em like that anymore....

28 Name: THRILLHO 2006-02-19 09:25 ID:4MrUUMbl

hey budokan is a really cool game :3, coz i can't afford to purchase prince of persia at that time XD

29 Name: Arcanalor : 2006-03-20 06:52 ID:31qSG2hI

Nobody's mentioned Master of Magic yet? Wow...

30 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-03-21 23:03 ID:bJf3UJU6

Star Control 2. Best game ever.

31 Name: LeDQN!LeDqnM1Jj2 : 2006-03-22 02:01 ID:Heaven

Tyrian 2000. The company went out of business, but the game they made was a pretty fun top-down arcade shooter. It's easy to find online.

32 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-03-22 21:33 ID:RofIK6lQ

I really loved playing Raptor: Call of the shadows. I guess you can still purchase it lol ( Still a fun game I tried playing it about a week ago on XP but the sound didn't work. I'm sure I could figure something out to make it work.

I live for Silpheed and Space Quest.

40 Name: automatic_jack : 2006-05-21 22:23 ID:mtNLmFyx

ah soo many memories, all these games are the reason I keep my 486 running...
the original Wing Commander owned.
Bio-Menace was one of my favs along with Paganitzu and EGATrek, Hugo's House of Horrors, Blake Stone, which I belive was made on the Wolf3D engine, Test Drive II w/the musclecars addon, Sierra's *Quest games. is a great program for running many of the old point and click adventure games. (Day of the Tentacle, Sam&Max)

and you can download hundreds of classic games at

Cliff Hanger and his brother Coat!

Oh, that was C64...

44 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-06-25 19:33 ID:TCy6ThkU

If you're a wargamer, the old Steel Panthers series from SSI was awesome in multiple senses of the word. Imagine the Advanced Squad Leader boardgame from Avalon Hill, but actually playable.

Too bad the AI was retarded.

I think Matrix Games / Shrapnel Games has rewritten some of them and ported them to Windows.

Yeah so many good DOS games. Love me some Heretic and Hexen. Also Abuse, Wolf3D and Blake Stone, classic Doom, Master of Orion and Master of Magic, classic Warcraft (Warcraft II especially), tons of Apogee shit like Bio Menace, Crystal Caves, Hocus Pocus, Mystic Towers; Vinyl Goddess From Mars, Xargon...

48 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-09 08:46 ID:sME2SOLK

>No mention of System Shock

It is genuinely the best game ever made. Its spiritual successor, Terra Nova, is fantastic too.

49 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-09 19:45 ID:ZZ9TcPbK

This is the first time I've heard Terra Nova described as a spiritual successor to System Shock, I thought it was a mech battle game?

50 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-09 23:19 ID:sME2SOLK

It is, but the game itself plays a lot like a faster, action-focused System Shock.

51 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2020-09-14 00:28 ID:ZZ9TcPbK

Crystal Caves is apparently getting an update with an added episode. Looks decent.
