@Serguei2 There were about 2000 games released in 1980-1989 for IBM PC dos. With the advent of things like DosBox, you might not want to limit yourself to the games you happened to play back in that timeframe.


I played more games than my top ten list.


- The Rogue.


- Space Quest 1 & II


- Into the eagle's nest


- Arkanoid


- Bubble Bobble


- Robocop


So what's your top 10 games from 1981-1989?


You said Pirates and Simcity.

The PC didn’t really become a viable gaming machine until the early/mid ‘90s. Many of the great games released for DOS in the ‘80s came out first/better on other platforms.

Other than the two mentioned above….


Maniac Mansion





Kings Quest

Leisure Suit Larry

Space Quest

Other good games from the time period.

Interactive Fiction

    Suspended, A Mind Forever Voyaging


Graphic Adventure

    Hero’s Quest, King’s Quest IV, Police Quest



    Bard’s Tale, Ultima III: Exodus, The Faery Tale Adventure, AutoDuel, Pool of Radiance, Ultima IV


    A-10 Tank Killer, F-15 Strike Eagle, Mech Warrior, Bandit King’s of Ancient China, MS Flight Simulator 3.0/4.0, Defender of the Crown



    Bubble Bobble, Arkanoid, Space Ace, Dragon’s Lair, Digger
