DOSbox runs most of those old games, Ev. It's probably the best DOS emulator for windows. I use it a lot to play games from my childhood, like the first Alone in the Dark. All you have to do is mount the directory you want to be for C: and then run the .exe/.bat for the game.
However, some games run better under certain versions of DOSbox. Check Abandonware sites for info on what will run your game the best if the newest DOSbox version for your OS isn't working out.
Hahahaha, "Beneath A Steel Sky", classic game. The Amiga was AWESOME. Probably my most favorite of all computers I've owned. I wasted thousands of hours playing "Sid Meier's Pirates" and "World Games".
For anyone that like emulated NES games, RPG's like the early FF's, I HIGHLY recommend getting a copy of "Destiny of An Emperor" 1 and 2. It's like Final Fantasy 1 but based around the whole Three Kingdoms storyline. Gaming Sickness.
Dude, you're even more oldschool than I thought! *Obama daps*
Yeah I gotta say the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series was always interesting to me. I never got much into Dynasty Warriors because of the gameplay, but the ties to Three Kingdoms made it worthwhile for me. I really enjoyed RotTK X on PS2. Quite possibly one of my favorite strategy games.
BTW, the copy I'm playing of "Beneath a Steel Sky" is actually emulated on Dreamcast. Someone homebrewed a few ScummVm games and ported them to Dreamcast. Sam and Max: Day of the Tentacle is one there, too. Now if they would just make a version of Grim Fandingo, my childhood PC games collection would be complete on Dreamcast, along with all NES, SNES, Megadrive, and Genesis games.
Thank you Sega. <3
