MS Dos games is the golden age of PC gaming. In the 1990’s, MS Dos is a command prompt for Windows 95. This innovated program was made in 1981 and developed by Microsoft. MS Dos was very difficult for new users but advance programmers. It’s not your typical operating system but vast production. In 1980s Microsoft need a operating system for IBM Personal Computer and hired Tim Paterson. Tim brought in MS Dos 1.10 for $75,000 in July. MS Dos was originally named 86-DOS for a while. The operating system is incensed to over 70 companies. Dos was designed for internal devices, boot loaders and other devices. Due to the success of MS Dos in 1995, it was replace Window 95 as OS kernel. Dos was great for programmers for inputting commands. For beginners, we will have a hard time with it.
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.
Have you ever through about buying a game that you can play together with people? What about playing alone not with other? In the video game community this is a norm for gamers. Developers make games that cater to groups of people. Single or with friends that’s what gaming is all about. For example, MMORPG are designed for 60+ players where you can interact with people online and build a community. Platformer are normally single-player but sometimes got multiplayer (if the developer desire to put into the game). Team based shooter originally for 1-4 player but it’s expanded to 10+, now 4 players are used for beat’em ups like Super Smash Bros.
Not just video games in general but board game can have a number of players but you can’t play it alone. Developers can design a game to aim for an audience or what types of players who wants to play their games. Another example, Just Dance 2018 is a rhythm game where you mimic dance moves of a popular songs. The game is for social gathering and 5 or more people can play the game. Tekken 7 is a 3D fighting game that design for tournaments, which is a group of people taking turns compete with each other. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is for single person who doesn’t want play with group of people.
