You’ve seen the list, but there are games you miss? Not to worry! Like any good show, I am already planning the bonus material. In the comments below, feel free to recommend me games that are not in the list but that I should definitely play and review to make my and your life better.

    Also there are 2 different Cool Spot games. One is a board game, the other’s a platform game. Both are oldies.

    Glad you enjoyed 4D Sports Boxing – was probably one of the best PC games. Ran like an absolute dog on an 8086 though – needed a 286 or a 386/SX.

    I know you’ve got a few flight sims in there, but I would go for F29 Retaliator if you can find it – the perfect mix of arcade-style and realistic sim IMHO.

    Also Wing Commander: best plotted action game of the DOS era by far.

    Invasion of the Mutant Space Bats of Doom

    It’s an arcade game in which you kill space bats. Don’t blame me for the name.

    Agh! There is no Prince of Persia on the list! How can you do without Prince of Persia? Or Prince of Persia 2, for that matter.
