14 MS-DOS Games That Shaped Us Into The Weirdos We Are
If that line means anything to you, you were probably a nerdy kid like we were. Instead of playing outside or even with a proper video game console, you were restarting your computer with an MS-DOS command prompt to play computer games. Few have stayed in our conscious memory (...we were seriously racking our brains to think of the first entry…) but they’ve certainly stayed in our hearts. Or at least hours of playing have been retained in our muscle memory. And in the age of reboots and sequels, we can’t help but wonder where our new Jazz Jackrabbit game could be.
Luckily plenty of MS-DOS emulators exist to allow us to still play, and games like Prince of Persia continue to impress our matured brains and sensibilities. But mostly, it’s the beauty of nostalgia that makes these games beloved. So without further ado, here are our most beloved games from our childhood that we hope to give you a spike of serotonin just thinking about them.
