Joining a DOS gamers club

Last year Wouter Groeneveld wrote about DOS Game Club and today, after watching them for some short time I’ve become a member.

DGC is a monthly club where we play a selected DOS game and discuss it. The discussion occurs in forums and on IRC (notice lack of Disord!). In addition, after each game, a podcast is recorded with members talking about a game. I genuinely dig the formula - it’s not too involved, but there is a community behind it.

January was a month of B-17 Flying Fortress. The only flying simulator I enjoyed was LHX Attack Chopper. Most likely due to it being more arcadey than simulatory.

Next month we will be playing Alien Legacy from 1994. This is the first time I’m seeing this game. After that, the schedule moves to Star Wars: Dark Forces, Discworld (oh no) and finally to Speedball 2.

A few days ago, I posted a memory about my first PC, which was a DOS machine. No Windows for me for the next few years! One of my resolutions for 2023 was joining online communities. Nice start!
