"2,500 More MS-DOS Games Playable at the Archive
Posted on October 13, 2019 by Jason Scott

Another few thousand DOS Games are playable at the Internet Archive! Since our initial announcement in 2015, we’ve added occasional new games here and there to the collection, but this will be our biggest update yet, ranging from tiny recent independent productions to long-forgotten big-name releases from decades ago."

Lots of classic games from the DOS era . Also some great Apple II games like number munchers and Oregon trail.

They even have Tomb Raider series, not sure that's abandonware though so it might get removed.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

The comments are tempting me to a Monty Python moment:

"80286 AT!? 256 colours?! Luxury!! When I first played these games computer bits were only 0 or .5 !"
