April Quiz - MS DOS Classics

Not every videogame childhood starts with a console. Maybe it was the family PC, where those who knew the secret words ("CD" or maybe "DIR") were able to launch magnificent games. To honor this, let's have a round focused on titles that were started via MS DOS... I made sure to pick a lot of classics, so that also pure console users have plenty of chances to score.

Due to the topic the selection relies mostly on games from the 90s, which is hopefully okay for most contestants. After the feedback regarding difficulty from the March quiz I made this round a bit more friendly - You all have fun and good luck!

Deadline is Tuesday the 30th of April, please participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

here is the quiz...

April Quiz - Clues #1

PC master race incoming - looks like most are enjoying this round! The quiz has been up for just ten days, but already over seventy people are digging out their 90s memories to try their luck on these DOS classics (none from this community).
It probably helps these games are actual classics and not just some japanese obscurities.

Nevertheless - here are some clues for you!

1) Watch out, some titles might yield only half a point if you don't get the series entry right... I'll decide that by the end of the month.
2) Game 2 and game 3 are classic western RPGs.
3) With the numbers 4, 6 and 8 you are looking at realtime strategy games.
4) 12, 13, 14, 15... here you control spaceships, either for a few sequences or the entire game.

Deadline is Tuesday the 30th April, participate via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/

I’ve always been a console gamer so this is not really my round, but I still recognize a bunch of these.
