I use DOSBOX to run most of my old DOS games

Some of my favorite DOS games are Raptor (it's on Steam but I have the original Apogee version) Life and Death (doctor/operating game) Detroit (car tycoon business game)

But, I do have a PC that is running MS-DOS 6.2, and so, it's a native DOS machine that can run DOS games flawlessly. With DOSBOX it's a bit trickier because you have to set the cycles to control the speed of the program. There are a few rare games that the cycles have to be something like 80, because anything higher and the game runs too fast.

I do also have a USB 3.5" floppy drive as I still have 3.5 disks that still work, as well as I have blank disks unused. Not long ago, I was able to copy a game from the DOS PC to a 3.5" disk and then put it on this computer. Most, if not all, of my 3.5" disks still work to this day. But I would like to find a new 5.25" disk drive, as I think the one I have has gone bad.
