Remembering the best shareware-era DOS games that time forgot | Ars Technica

in #dlikelast year

Shared From Dlike

Anyone who has played games a lot has a favorite era that set their expectations and defined what they would find fun for years to come. But it's difficult to talk about classic computer games without dating yourself—either as younger or older—and whether an era counts as "classic" or formative depends on the individual.

In my case, the formative glory days were the 1980s and early '90s, and the platform was MS-DOS. And while I did play popular commercial releases from publishers like Apogee and Epic, I mostly played shareware releases. Today, we're going to look at some gems of that lost era.
