    Search Google for "free MS-DOS" games or similar. The most famous DOS game was Wolfenstein 3D but I think thats still copyrighted to iD.

    Castle Wallenstein was made free few years ago and so was first Doom.

    I actually have a game from 94 called Full Throttle (LucasArts Entertainment), a biker game. It's DOS & now I feel even older then I am..... But it was actually as good game with decent animation.

    I still have my copy of Full Throttle stored away in my shed. Right next to Sam And Max Hit the Road and Monkey Island.

    I really like Hoyle Volume 1 DOS card games on W10 32 bit.

    Just a note, MS-DOS 6.22 was the last, after that Windows 95 and DOS began the merging of the Disk Operating System and the GUI/Graphical User Interface. I never saw MS-DOS 7.x as an installable OS but a bootable floppy could be made while running Win95 through WinME. I created a WinME boot floppy then used a small program to create a bootable CD from that floppy disk, used it a couple of times several years ago for clients when their floppy drive had died. The biggest issue I have with DOS is no support for 64-bit computers which is also an issue running old games on mew computers.

    DOS


    I run an automotive business and have been using a DOS program for the last 27 years, when I had to upgrade to Windows 7, the 32 bit version was my only option unless I used DOSbox (which I tried) on my other 64 bit machine but you could not print invoices. So currently I'm still using W7 32 bit, but most of my DOS programs & games still work with Windows 10 32 bit Technical Preview. But still not sure if I will upgrade my shop computer on July 29th. Must do extensive testing first.
