First, I remember this game where you played as a fish, and tried to survive in the depths of the ocean. I think you could choose your fish type at the start. By default, you were a regal tang (listed as "achilles tang").
Monkeyshines- a puzzle game involving a monkey
Escape Velocity- a Star Trek themed RPG of sorts where you began as a shuttlecraft pilot and worked your way up to captain of the Enterprise. There was also a Star Wars themed version.
Oxyd- you control a black ball, and move your way through various futuristic mazes trying to activate all the oxydizers.
Snowbound- an educational game requiring math or English skills to reach the top of the mountain
Spellbound- a spelling game featuring various puzzles, and your opponents are robots; your character's face is never seen, covered by his baseball cap
I remember some game where you wandered around a museum looking for clues
I remember a kiddie game where you had to collect shapes, letters, etc, while also taking care of a gorilla
I had a Mickey Mouse puzzle game for DOS where the pictures would animated once you were done
I remember a Pac-Man clone called Maniac which introduced a Hangman feature
I remember a Breakout clone known as Bebop
3D Dinosaur- you learn about dinosaurs in a 3D world (requiring 3D glasses). There was a quest to rescue each dinosaur from a comet while using their descriptions as clues (when the comet hit, it scared the bejeebies outta me). The disc also came with Kids Zoo.
Eagle Eye Mysteries- a Carmen Sandiego game of sorts where you had to figure out the arson at Grimes Novelties.
MegaRace- a futuristic racing game hosted like an actual TV show by Lance Boyle
I'M SURE YOU REMEMBER THESE
Math Blaster, Number Muncher, etc
The Incredible Machine- various puzzles are put together using random objects
Dr. Brain- various puzzes in the world of a mad scientist
First person adventure- Myst, Riven, The Lighthouse, etc
Point-and-click adventure- Space Quest, King's Quest, etc
Carmen Sandiego- the very popular travel detective game series. I had the mid 90s remakes.

More
Gus Goes to Cybertown- some game where you clicked on things in each area to animate them, revealing "cyberbuds" in the process. Once all the cyberbuds were revealed, the game was over.
The Little Samurai- an elderly rabbit tells his kids the story of a samurai no bigger than a chipmunk. The story was interactive. You could click on various things to add to the story.
I also had an interactive Peter Pan story.
I also remember a game called "Secret of the Castle", but don't actually remember having it.
Wing Commander- the famous sci-fi game featuring the Kilrathi
X-Wing vs TIE Fighter- a Star Wars game featuring both sides, as opposed to X-Wing and the very popular TIE FIghter

Yess. And yeah, I could NOT play "Save the Dinosaurs". It was nightmare fuel for everyone I've ever heard mention this game. Had an earlier release, though, I believe, so no "Kids Zoo"

Good job for mentioning The Incredible Machine and Myst.

When it comes to classic DOS awesomeness there is nothing quite like this:

Don't forget SWOTL. I sucked at it, though.

I also had DOS games based on Wheel of Fortune, Family Feud, and Jeopardy. Then there were the organ and drum simulators, also DOS.
