Can't XP run DOS games? You can use the DOS emulator, DosBOX [google it] and usually when clicked they'll run anyway. Lol... I'm addicted to DOS games.

Yes, XP can run DOS games, but I used to have a few DOS games that had to be run in a true DOS environment, and that would crash when using the enulated dos mode, I'm not sure if this was because the emulator wasn't good enough, or if my computer wasn't good enough though.

Aah.. usually with emulation your computer needs to be very powerful to run even DOS games...
