Default Best Dos Game

Ok, forget your favorite game of all time. That's easy. What was your favorite DOS game of all time.

Mine was Raptor Call of the Shadows. That game rocked hard.

Mine was the tank game where you tried to hit your opponents tank. You had a ton of shell choices and some addons to your tank to make it harder.

Yes scorched earth was it's name, loads of fun!!!

Blood would have to be my fave for DOS.

I should change my name to Number 1. Not because I am conceited but because thats what I always roll at inopportune moments.

Monkey Island. Far and away. Honourable mentions to Day of the Tentacle, Space Hulk and the Sierra Discovery series games (Search for Cetus, Lost Secret of the Rainforest, Castle of Doctor Brain etc).

You can download most of them - legally, because of the freeware agreement - from here:

http://www.abandonia.com/

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Tyrian was pretty sweet if it's the game i'm thinking of. Very similar to my favorite
"Raptor Call of the Shadows."
