I can only recall playing about 13 of the games in that list, but it definitely brings back memories. I remember D/Generation being awesome, but I had no idea what the game was even called until now.

Ohhh it's such a good game. Well worth some retro gaming.

71 for me, but as a child of the 80s I had a lot of free time to play these and more.
Surprising how many in the list I still own through the marvels of GOG!

Around 30 for me.
I'd say the point 'n click adventure games definitely still stand up to todays standards: Sam & Max, Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones, the Monkey Islands, Full Throttle, any of the LucasArts adventure games really. Gotta love ScummVM.
Also Theme Hospital is still brilliant. Plus UFO: Enemy Unknown (XCOM: UFO Defence), Transport Tycoon and Tyrian. All still fantastic.

Amazed
Default 43 games played

Though I must admit I did not complete all of these games. Looking back I think the main problem was that I drowned in games. Played the game a couple of hours then started on a new one.

But games like Syndicate, Quake, Abuse, Doom, Settlers, Dune 2, Another World, Lemmings, Leisure suit Larry, Command Conquer I finished. Alot of these games i still have on a portabel USB disk along with a portabel dosbox. Lets me play anywhere.

37 Good memories. And yeah, most are unplayable in so many ways... The memory bank is the best place for them now

Damn flawed list. Best games ever on DOS are Nethack and Ancient Domains of Mystery, and neither rate a mention.
