There are some pc games compatible with Windows 10 that I have enjoy. While in MS Dos era with Windows 95 days. You have to insert a CD Rom or command prompt to start the game. I don’t know about Windows 8 or below, but still some games are compatible. MDK 2 didn’t work for some reason maybe it’s the graphics card or operation system. Sin (1998 video game) and Star Wars Jedi Knight Mysterious of the Sith didn’t work on my PC. That being said, I love retro games and willing to play them all in the future. There are some games I haven’t play in my childhood. Now I am a full-fledged adult with a day job. I can buy them whatever I want. It’s still a struggle what founder of Capital Underground Gaming League says.
