Ultima IV through VI.
Can't run VII or later on that thing.

>would you
*used to
688 Attack Sub
Space Quest
King's Quest
Leisure Suit Larry
Turbo Outrun
Sim City (original)
Wing Commander
Monkey Island
some Corvette game
Star Trek

I had a lot of fucking games for that thing.

>Ultima VII
No way in hell you're running that on a 386, bruh.

Dune and Dune 2 (the original RTS game before they made C&C - same devs)

I ran 7 of a 386 np.
386x33 with a math coprocessor and a 1g HD. Also had a CD burrner (shit was expensive as fuuuuuuuck back then).
You could do whatever with a boot disk. DOS was awesome.

Sierra games, probably some others released through Atari for PC. probably couldn't play my nigga GATO cause I think that's an sx chipset and GATO's time clock was synced to the processor clock and optimized for the dx

I remember having to upgrade to a 486 because of that piece of hogshit Extended Memory Manager.

Dude...I played everything up to and including quake on a 386x33 with 48mb ram until we got a p75 right around when quake 1 came out.

well if you had a 386sx they were useless. We had a 386dx33 with a math coproceesor installed (which was like another $250) cause my dad needed that for AutoCAD.
You could do a lot with that machine in its day.

How could I forget Wolfenstein?



I honestly don't remember, but it might have been an SX.
All of it was amazing upgrades compared to playing Ultima 1-3 on a Commodore 64, though.

Ultima I with a joystick was fun

>could do a lot with that machine in its day
The software was soooo much cleaner back then. They don't even give a fuck now, with the weebs buying new "battlestations" and video cards just to burn money.

Oh shit the legends rolling out. Kids today dont know true gaming.

Yes yes! I loved DOS. I miss those days.

>Kids today
Kids today ruined FPS because they don't know how to use a mouse and keyboard. Stupid joystick flunkies.


I can play the original leasure suit Larry in normal, and I managed to play the Remake with the turbo button on.

I also had a green cd called '2000 super arcade games'. The thing was PACKED full of shareware and demos that kept me busy most of my younger years. I wish I still had that fucker.

Seriously. Quake is the example I always give. The wrote the engine in C++ and the keyboard handler in Assembler so that the controls responded faster than the game. I fucking dare someone to do that shit now. DARE THEM.

Help me out fags.
I remember the 8086-286-386-486 progression pretty well. What was after that? Was it Pentium? I remember something about P3, P4, etc. I didn't really fuck with PCs between the 486 and the Athlon K6.

Probably was. The 386dx I had was faster than 486sx machines. People got newer 486sx machines years after ours and they couldn't run newer games.
It's likely the equivalent of if you bought a celeron vs a pentium.
PLUS that thing had a math coprocessor which was the extra floating point that was added to the 486 dx only. So it was probably running on par with a 486 dx 33. That and a really good HD and you have a good machine.

>be this guy
>literally jerk off to math coprocessors

8088, 8086, 286, 386sx/386dx, 486sx/486dx, Celeron/Pentium, Pentium Pro is in here, Celeron II/Pentium II (these looked like a nintento cart), Itanium and Xeon's started up with Celeron 3/Pentium 3...etc....


I forgot all about that thing.

When you're plopping down $2800 for a home-office machine (no monitor, no kb) so that you can type book reports and play games in 256 colors, you pay attention to this shit.

Remember these thick-ass bastards back in the 80s?

duke nukem
etc etc

Celeron is a quake player too.

I still have my receipts from a commodore64, atari2600, Pentium166hz computer, celeron and some others.

The comp was $2000 (no monitor or burner or anything)

Gods yes, but also:
Outpost (despite the end-game bugs)
Commander Keen
