What are the eight best games for PC MS-DOS? In this report, we review the eight classic titles that we consider essential.
The more veterans possibly remember the times of MS-DOS fondly. By that time, we had no graphics ultrarealistic or helmets of virtual reality with the feel within the game, but we had the titles of excellent quality. In this report, we collect the eight best MS-DOS PC games under our discretion to pay a small tribute to that era of great classics without which nothing would be as it is today. Enjoy it!
Note: what you will find below is a list in alphabetical order of which, in our opinion, are the eight best MS-DOS PC games. Therefore, you will not see a ranking in which one set is placed above another in terms of quality.
- Alone in the Dark
It was 1992 when Alone in the Dark appeared, which we could call “the grandfather of survival horror.” This graphic adventure, based on the stories of H. P. Lovecraft and developed by Infogrames, put us in the skin of Edward Carnby and invited us to investigate a haunted house full of zombies. So, on PC MS-DOS, one of the best horror games ever was born.
- Another World
In 1991 came this adventure of action developed by Delphine Software that surprised us with an essential cinematographic section, something that may now be common but that at that time was not so frequent to see in video games. Another World is one of the best MS-DOS PC games that has recently received a remastering for the current consoles.
A journey throughout the history of humanity is what Civilization proposed to us in 1991. In this title of strategy, we had to grow our civilization from prehistory to the Space Age, our goal being to be the first to travel to space or conquer the entire planet. His success was such that he has been receiving new deliveries regularly from Sid Meier, being the last Civilization Beyond Earth.
- Command and Conquer
Westwood Studios offered us the first delivery of the Command and Conquered saga back in 1995. That real-time strategy adventure would quickly become one of the best MS-DOS games thanks, in large part, to its outstanding visual section and its game mechanics, not to mention the argumentative quality of the Command & Conquer universe.
The first delivery of the Doom saga came to us in 1993 with the help of software. This first-person shooter left us with an open mouth thanks to his detailed three-dimensional graphics, the maturity of his argument, his brutality and his enemies. A space adventure that led us to Mars and is about to receive a restart with the new DOOM for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
- Duke Nukem 3D
Among the best games for PC MS-DOS we find another title of action in the first person of the most scoundrel. Duke Nukem 3D was developed by 3D Realms in 1996 and plunged us into an adult-only futuristic adventure because of its high content of sexist and violent elements. And, the good Duke does not cut a hair to the time to act.
- Dune II
This is first and foremost a classical de la Estrategia. Dune II reached MS-DOS in 1992 with Westwood Studios and Virgin Interactive. The title was based on the film Dune by David Lynch, which in turn is an adaptation of the science fiction book written by Frank Herbert, and took full advantage of the film’s pull to delight all fans of this franchise.
- Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis
LucasArts offered us a lot of great graphic adventures in the time of MS-DOS, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is a clear example of that. In 1992 we got this title that had nothing to envy to any of the films starring the famous archaeologist. An absolute must for Indiana fans.
