MS-DOS Computers
Sometimes new inventions are instantly popular because they are useful, and sometimes they are just instantly popular because they are different or interesting…new. If you are able to take a new idea, make it work, and make it work well…you have taken the first and most important step in successfully marketing an electronic gadget.

When the personal computer scene began implementing the MS-DOS operating system in IBM and PC compatible machines, it was one of the largest advancements in computing to that date. MS-DOS would eventually be replaced by a GUI operating system, primarily Windows, but from 1981 to the turn of the century, it was a main cog with frequent updates and releases.

The nice thing about the MS-DOS operating system was that it turned the home computer into a gaming console…a very versatile gaming console. Of course, it didn’t have the graphic or sound capabilities of the gaming consoles originally, but it continued to evolve, offering more complex games and functions each year. Plus, people could use computers for a wealth of other tasks, not just gaming. MS-DOS became a multi-tasker, even on the gaming front.

This multitasking filtered into the gaming scene. MS-DOS suddenly featured one of the largest libraries of games ever. It harbored everything from classic platformers to text-based adventure games. Some games were simple. Others offered seemingly endless inventory and dialogue. Probably some of the most famous and influential games in the history of MS-DOS were first person shooters. Titles such as Wolfenstein or Doom are practically household names and, of course, the Duke Nuke Em series is still alive and kicking, long past the age of DOS.

On that note, most games have left DOS behind and most personal computers have, as well. For that reason, many people have had to get a little creative when it comes to playing their old favorites. Emulation is at its finest when it comes to this old operating system, and classic gamers should have no trouble playing old games on more modern systems.
