I have a huge want and trade list. Do any of you play or collect any old pc dos games? I'm talking mid-80's till around 1997.

Sure do! These are just my boxed games. I have tons of loose floppy games.

Some of these boxed games cost me upwards of $100-150 EACH!

I have an old Tandy that I like to play a couple of games on. What do you have for trade? I'm looking for Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers at the moment.

Oh yes. I'm a console guy but I love old DOS games... well, when they don't suck.

Yeah, I really like adventure games so I collect whatever I can come across that's fun to play. Plenty are for DOS, mostly from the early to mid 90's.

I love finding boxed DOS games, stuff like Space Quest and Master of Orion makes me happy. Let's see that list, buddy.

Absolutely! I have many hundreds of PC games, and I would guess a third to a half or so are DOS. Always looking for more. I have 99% of my collection posted on Mobygames

Out of curiosity, which titles did you pay $100-150 for? I love picking up older titles from the early to late 80's, and others from up to the late 90's. I used to have 300+ titles, but I sold the packaging and kept the disks to play.

I would also like to see what cost upwards of $100... can't see but maybe one or two in today's market that would go even $60 (Jazz Jackrabbit, Daggerfall), so my curiousity is piqued!

This guy, is un-fucking believable. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFKylgGk73I)

I have about four plastic tubs and six or seven Priority Mail boxes filled with games. I've never tried to catalog them anywhere other than MobyGames (and even then, the list is very incomplete). Maybe I'll do so soonish...

Thanks! Although I'm not sure why he wouldn't just post them here. Go figure.

I used to... Sold them all on ebay last february/march with the rest of my game collection before I moved to Japan. Got some good coin for the Infocom lot but the rest didn't bring much. Not many collect them.

Boxed computer games take up soo much room... They're neat and all, but to be honest unless it's an old RPG game with all the extras they aren't worth collecting. I'm fine with having them all on Dosbox.

I did keep my complete boxed copy of Ultima I however.

I see you have a copy of Vampire Masquerade Redemption aaron7! That was the first game I ever worked on when I worked at Activision.

Sort of. I have a ton from my PC days but I don't collect them really:

I have the following old games (pretty sure they all use floppy disks for install - I can open them and look if you want): Monkey Island 2, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Return to Zork, and The 7th Guest. I think most or all of them are Windows format. Haven't played any of them in many years; they've been sitting in a cupboard. I'm now getting ready to move and need to clean out some of this stuff. Anyone interested in buying them, or should I try my luck on Ebay?

If you have any questions or interest, please email me: jen4jazz2000@yahoo.com. Thanks!

I don't think that's gonna happen. They were apparently offended by the word "fuck" above. And, I would think, they'll be offended by this message as well.

I took a few snaps of a few places I stash my games.

Some of those games I've picked up in jewel cases or previously discarded the boxes. A handful of these came with computers purchased from co-workers of my parents up til around 2000. I still love those 486 machines that have long since gone.

Some of my games on a cart. There's a second layer of games behind them that I don't feel like moving around. The G3 is running OS-9 and have been thinking about moving it into the office since it doesn't have wireless and don't feel like setting up proxies at the moment as that requires having an AP up and cross over just for the G3 access.

Some on-hand action there.

Old applications, operating system install disks, odd drivers, educational programs like Peppers Adventure in Time, some games like Best of MS Entertainment (Chip's Challenge, SkiFree, JezzBall, ect.) & Oregon Trail, and some old misc disks that most likely have old class projects.

Some of the larger, odd shaped boxes that don't easily fit anywhere.

Some of the more modern games and classic collection's like C&C Decade and Taito Legends. At least they fit close to the size of a DVD case.

Hi! Yes. I've still got lots of DOS games, and I still think that many of them are far better than newer games today. I'm an Adventure game nut so that's what I play and collect.
