Well they may be retro but some of them were no were near the best of them at least for me.
Of the top of my head at least for me:
Zork - Grand Inquisitor
Wing Commander series
Kings Quest series
Return to Krondor
Lands of Lore
Journeyman Project 3
Dungeon Keeper 2
did some one play this DOS game before? Xenon (an air plane game like RaiDen) type xenon 2 megablast in wikipedia. i still have that game and can still play with it coz is a dos game.
bubble bobble(dos game) and Total Annahilation , red alert , unreal tournament , D1 & diablo2 , starcraft . i miss the game home world too.
I have to say the lack of Elite in this list is disturbing... One of the earliest and best games to use 3d graphics. Elite+ for the pc is still a perfectly playable game (although I would recommend people use oolite the modern conversion instead).
[citation][nom]Martell77[/nom]DOSBox is a great program! I have installed and can play so many of my favorite games again. The ones I currently have installed are:Mechwarrior 2: 31st Century CombatMechwarrior 2: Ghost Bear LegacyThe 7th GuestThe 11th HourWarcraftWarcraft 2 (original Dos version)Pagan: Ultima 8 (I have the full collection but 8 was my favorite)Doom Full ThrottleThese were all great games, but without DosBox and making .iso files from the CD's I doubt they would ever run on Windows 7. I installed a Win 95 game called Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers under Windows 7 and it did run, but it ran so fast that it was uncontrollable. Since it was made for Win 95 it wont work under DOSBox so that program is still unusable. Still working on it though, it was too fun of a game to just drop it forever. Funny though, I installed and can run Diablo (Windows 95) just fine. We are in an era of almost all games going better and better graphics yet the gameplay is seriously lacking. The games above weren't very pretty but the gameplay made them amazing. Funny, 7th Guest was considered to have ground-breaking graphics for its time, its a shame companies don't revisit these games and give them a facelift while preserving the overall gameplay.[/citation]
Just thought I'd mention, you can set the number of cycles down in DOSBox so games that run too fast can be slowed down to the appropriate speed. You should check the DOSBox readme on the different commands. There is no game I've encountered so far that's DOS based and couldn't be played perfectly in DOSBox. Even the Sound config can be rearranged to fix sound issues for any games that won't give the right sounds or any sound at all with the default config.
Even if Scorched Earth was a rip-off, I am pretty sure the originator was Bang Bang! for Windows 3.1, at least that's the earliest "use trajectory and velocity to blow up the other guy" game I remember. I would like to see any of the Tex Murphy games on here (only really played the 3D ones but I did download the originals from GOG, will get to them some day), loved those, and I heard they may be making a reboot!

You can use a program like D-Fend or something similar that sits on top of DOSBOX and has a built in windows GUI. It works alot better then trying to configure DOSBOX and doesnt require editing anything.
Ultima 7 has an available Windows helper that make the game playable on modern PC's and adds in features into the game.
There are also 3D FX emulators that are out there that will work with the games requiring 3D-FX to run.
Still think some of the best games are from the late 80's to the early 90s.
I remember an interesting little game that came out on floppy. It was called castle. you walked around this castle and you can use orders like "look desk" and the game would tell you what was on the desk. It was very interesting for its day. It played really well on an 8 bit ibm pc. It was some kind of freeware.
