Default OTHER 20+ Year Old Elf Simulators

I know everyone here is very focused one particular 20-year old elf sim, but I just wanted to remind everyone that the Internet Archive (ie. the people behind the Wayback Machine, which is used for so much classic research here), also have another project: making old DOS games available to play on the internet.

Just recently they added a ton of games to it, and they can all be played in your browser; see for yourself: https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games.

Of course, they have classics like Bard's Tale, Wizardry, the old Sierra * Quest games (King's Quest, Space Quest, etc.) ... but they also have a ton of lesser-known, but still really awesome (if you can get past the UI/graphics) RPGs.

For instance, if anyone is looking to lose a few weeks to a classic they may never have heard of, check out:

Oh man, thank you for mentioning Bard's Tale! I got that as part of a "10-pack " of games from Interplay as an impressionable youth in the early 90s. Tons of discs to load into the tower

If I have to only play a certain era of games. It would be the dos era of games.
I love dos games.

Thanks for sharing that amazing resource Loramin!
