DOS Games Overview

During the 1980s and 1990s, DOS was one of the most popular operating systems for games. While many of these games were extremely popular, many of them became forgotten when more advanced operating systems such as Windows 95 was introduced. Many of these games fall under the category of shareware, and many companies produced thousands of titles.

While a number of these games were not high in quality, some of them went on to gain a large amount of commercial success.

First person shooter games first became popular during the DOS era. Games like Duke Nukem, Hexen and Doom created a new type of gaming experience that players had never seen before.

It was DOS games that first introduced the concept of music for PCs, and AI bots were first developed for classic games such as Duke Nukem.

By the mid 1990s, DOS had largely fallen out of favor as 32-bit console games begin to capture the markets that had been dominated by PC games for the last few years.

However, there has been a recent surge of interest in DOS games, and many websites are now offering hundreds of titles for free. The advent of the internet has insured that these classic games will not be forgotten.
