Dosbox games on Steam
With games like "7th Guest" and "I have no mouth, I must scream" it is possible to buy and play classic pc games through steam on linux. This opens up the possibility of steam offering a catalogue of classic games like gog for linux gamers. What games from DOS era would you like to see on steam for linux?

All the Original Quake and DOOM games would be a nice boost to my linux library!

Space Quest, King's Quest and all the other Sierra adventure games series.

eeeh... can't you just download them and use the dosbox version that comes with your system ?

Of course we can. But it is just unnecessary work the publishers could easily do for us. Which is why we should tell them to do the whole DosBox configuration thing for us.
(Guess why none of my DOS Steam games have no or near-to-no playtime. It is because I use ... a not outdated version of DosBox!)

would love to see Gabriel Knight and the Tex Murphy games available for download for linux. Of course the alternative is to download from gog and use dosbox directly.

You can always overwrite the Steam version or use symlinks to get the playtime recorded and still keep the more recent version.

I would love to see a Dosbox version of Mechwarrior 1, 2, and Mercenaries (mw2 mercenaries, that is). I know there is a windows version of MW2, but it has had too many problems from release. Not to mention it's a heck of a lot easier to get the game running on Dosbox in my experience.

The irony is it would take almost 0 effort for them to just include the linux version of Dosbox in the game and just update it to download from linux the config files for dosbox between windows and linux are pretty much identical.

I actually just came to this forum to put up a post about this topic; the old MS-DOS games available through Steam are launched in Windows through DosBox anyways, so they should theoretically run in the same manner.
