Worthwhile DOS Games

Here's a pretty choice link (thanks Danno!) which shows a diagram of the most worthwhile DOS games - not sure who it's according to but the image has got quite a few that I know of!

All I want to know is, where's Star Wars: X-Wing and the original Settlers? :)

So how many of these games have you played? How many do you remember when they came out?

For me, out of the 100 games listed:

  • 83 games I can identify/remember when they came out
  • 55 games I've actually played
  • 26 games are amongst my favourite games of all time

So not a bad selection considering that's more than a quarter of the games listed! If you're curious to know what my favourite games from this list are (or at least the games I spent way too much time playing):

  • Sid Meier's Civilization
  • Sid Meier's Colonization
  • Command & Conquer
  • Commander Keen
  • Day of the Tentacle
  • Full Throttle
  • Gabriel Knight
  • Hero's Quest (Quest for Glory I)
  • Jagged Alliance series
  • Lemmings
  • Little Big Adventure
  • Loom
  • Master of Orion 2
  • Mechwarrior 2
  • Quake (mainly for Team Fortress 2 though)
  • SimCity 2000
  • Star Control II (although I actually played this later in life)
  • Stunts
  • Syndicate
  • Monkey Island 1 and 2
  • Theme Hospital
  • Theme Park
  • Transport Tycoon Deluxe
  • UFO: Enemy Unknown
  • Wacky Wheels
  • Wing Commander and Privateer series
