What's your favorite DOS game?

Mine has to be Life and Death 2: The Brain (As I've posted about before). ^_^

My own pick would have to go to Colonization.

Not only is it the first real PC game I ever played, but it is also the first game I ever owned. Not to say that it is also a great strategy game. ^_^

Civ and Col are very even, but UFO is competent challenger too, as well as Nethack!

I have lot's of memories relating to old dos games.
However I will only share one  game that holds a special place in my heart with you
Airborne ranger, as I never managed to exit/finish a level.

I love 'Begin 2' (Star Trek tactical sim, very much like the original show)

The Ultimate Doom is great, even today.

Might and Magic 4 and 5: World of Xeen is my favorite RPG, tied with the Exile series and Might&Magic6, but those aren't DOS.

I've got to agree with Life and Death 2 it's amazing. I've only played it once but I was obsessed with the first one a good few years back. Really hard though.

This is hard..!

There's always a special place in my heart for Dreamweb. That's one amazingly moody game. I love cyberpunk.
Right now I'm playing Dune again. And Hidden Agenda, Blackthorne, Civilization, Alpha Space, Wolfpack and Loom.

One of my bestist favourites has to be Tie-Fighter, though it's tied (no pun intended) with Space Rogue
Can't go wrong with a bit of space adventure action.

Always wanted to play "Civilization" for more than just 5 minutes. :)

Maybe when I have the time. :P
