My experience with MS Dos was in the mid 90s. I went to a computer show and sell that year. My dad picked up some CDs with shareware games. When I got home and play some Doom and Wolfenstien 3D. There were obscure games that were bad and sloppy. On the weekends, I spend a lot of time with them. There were other games like Sango Fighter, One Must Fall, Rayman and Worms. These were shareware demos and you will have to buy them. Some requirements were getting CDs and Floppy Disks. I am happy I was old enough to buy them. There were some games I wished to play. Fast forward to adult years I have to the money for purchase. There is a platform called Steam that have MS Dos games on them.
