You will need a special program to slow down your computer to play dos games. With modern pc`s there too fast and if you install a dos game you will notice they run extremly quickly. There are some programs to fix this problem.

Dosbox(download for which ever OS you use such as windows linux etc):

lol thats so funny to read, slow down the computer. Its cool how far we've come since then.

Ever played some bridge builder game (I don't remember it's name) but I have to turn on V-sync or else it's too quick.
