Start Here!

The PC is difficult to categorize as a platform, as it is essentially one long series of incremental upgrades as opposed to a single easily distinguishable console. For the purposes of retrogaming, I'll be covering games released prior to the year 2000. This is only somewhat arbitrary; Windows XP released in roughly the same time frame, and XP games will be covered in the PC reviews section proper.

You'll need DOSBox (an x86 emulator) to run many older PC titles. You can find the documentation for it here. Mucking around with DOS is a bit unwieldy for a modern computer user, but indispensable for the exploration of forgotten gems. I'll point out where to acquire abandonware, but you'll have to track down legitimate copies for many of the entries.
