But whoah, one guy did this? Feel proud PCKF, you have not wasted nearly this much time on anything.

I've sent him like 5-6 games that are not in the list and I'm sure there are plenty more I can find that are not in this list.

Btw I also have made some PC game lists in the past when I didn't had internet. The internet was too primitive anyway. I collected information from game magazines and game disk compilations. Later, when the internet become somewhat usable, one of the first game related sites I found (without google) were happypuppy.com and the home of the underdogs. I remember that I was really happy to find out some information about Commander Keen and other games in them. Cool times.

And then there were gamehippo.com and fileplanet.com. Too bad non of these exist these days.

Indeed, that's why there's an updated version: http://pastebin.com/U4n85p8s

Wow that takes me back. I think I downloaded Keen1 from a BBS back then. I'm sure I got the other ones from my Dad. Him and his coworkers routinely "copied that floppy". Along with xeroxed manuals to Keen 6, Loom, and Prince of Persia.

Most impressive! I still can't find an old DOS game that I've been trying to find for many years. The trouble is I don't know the name of the game. The exe was named "mon" and the object of the game was to eliminate all monsters from the playing field. So I assume the game is called Monsters or has the word 'monster' in the title. I've searched hundreds of titles and blazed through dozens of forums and lists. I'll probably never find it. (It was a up-to-4 player arcade game.)
The way they made freebie games back then with companies rising and falling faster than you could say bob's your uncle, the chances of me finding that old game is absolute zero.

On that note, if any of you happen to have (or even to have seen) a certain "fightdav.exe" where you box with Dave Letterman, please let me know

Oh but it wasn't finished at the time, it's still a work in progress you know!

Couldn't view the list - my computer slowed down too much... (2GB of RAM flummoxed by a text file!)

As for games of which we don't know the name, there was a puzzle game called "BLOCK.EXE" or "BLOCKS.EXE" (I forget which) where there were blocks you had to move by pushing them with a little man at which point they'd fly across the screen until they hit something and the object was to get blocks of the same colour/pattern to touch at which point they'd disappear. We had that game on our old Windows 95 PC and I have been searching for it ever since. Sadly, there are an almost infinite number of games called "Block" or some variatione thereupon, so I haven't had any luck so far...

It's missing a bunch of Soleau Soft games (Blindmaze is the one I remember most as a kid), but the fact that Soleau even shows up at all on that list is impressive.

I have the shareware versions of Blindmaze, Madmaze, Ratmaze and Bumpmaze iirc.
