Old Computer Games For Mac

This is a list of old Macintoshsoftware that no longer runs on current Macs. The software might require Mac OS 9 or other versions of the classic Mac OS that can't run on Apple's current Intel machines. Note that most old programs can still be run using emulators, such as SheepShaver, vMac, or Basilisk II.

  1. The Oregon Trail

Description of The Oregon Trail

There are few video games more fondly remembered than the Oregon Trail. It has inspired countless gamers and spawned countless memes. Still, it is hard to say how much of the fondness gamers feel towards this storied title is due to the fact that Oregon Trail was literally the first (and in some cases, the only) video game many children played. Much of its exposure came in classrooms, due to its educational nature.

By the standards of the time in which the 1990 “Classic Edition” was released, much less those of today, there's very little actual substance to Oregon Trail, and many will find it either tiresomely repetitive or only good for a brief jaunt down nostalgia lane.

Gameplay in the older versions of Oregon Trail consists mostly of hunting every day to make the most of your food supply (a minigame where you shoot at a variety of game) and waiting for your party to reach the next landmark.

Later versions, including the 1992 Oregon Trail Deluxe and the 1995 Oregon Trail II offer vast improvements on both graphics and gameplay. In fact, many adults in their 30s today are far more likely to have grown up on either of those than the variants of the Ur Oregon Trail.

Still, this remains an artifact for the curious. While this is a step up from the days of having to type “Bang” and “Pow” to shoot game in the earliest versions, a quick play of Oregon Trail: Classic Edition will show kids (and many adults) how lucky they've had it compared to Generation X, who had to walk to school through snow, uphill both ways, to get to their vidya.

If your trying to run this game on a Windows 10 PC, you will need DOSbox to run it as it won't run normally in this version of Windows.

Morbid_Decay2020-05-140 point DOS version

vicsar2020-05-093 points DOS version

I had never played the original, only the deluxe version. This is fun :-)

moonbug2019-03-143 points

Bear Vs. Salmon, you can convert one of the mainframe versions, they're pretty small and entirely in BASIC. Otherwise this is almost identical: http://www.atariarchives.org/bca/Chapter02_WestwardHo.php

It's a shame. 'Pg' is using an online platform (likely with a decent device) to ban a generation about their access to technology.
I am a millennial. I remember playing in school. That's why I am on this page in the first place. Just kind of food for thought to those predisposed do decide others morals based on age. At least last millennials are discriminatory by a LARGE margin. But that's numbers not opinion.
I'm glad to see this on here so I can reminisce the days when nothing could go wrong.

I remember playing this game back in 1990 while I was in the sixth grade. I used to love going to the computer lab with my class each week, just so we could play The Oregon Trail on those Old School Apple computers. Each of us were so enthralled by the game, it was the only time that an instructor didn't have to tell us to be quiet. Kids today (Millenials) will never understand how fun and educational The Oregon Trail was for our generation. Sadly, the main reasons they use computers is to connect on Social Media (which has led to Cyber Bullying),
Hacking/Stealing personal information, and other nonsense. Only Xennials can comprehend how Awesome this game is, was and always will be! We grew up during a time when life was simple, and technology had not overstepped it's boundaries by consuming the entire world, and turning everyone into illiterate zombies that can't function without an Iphone in their hand.

Bear Vs. Salmon2017-04-218 points Apple II version

It won't run on my TI-83! Halp.

Best old mac games

Every public school in America had a copy of this back in the day, even the tiny school in rural Idaho I grew up in. Many younger people might find it boring, and wonder what we see in it. In all honesty, with the nostalgia glasses off it might not seem like much, but dagnabit yunguns it was fun!

Lord_Xarti2015-04-09-4 points DOS version

Why are you all using JUST DOSbox? Use the far superior LaunchBox *(Which includes DOSbox and many more emulators) that does a lot of this behind the scenes work for you? I got the newest version *(4.6 as of this typing) and it works like a dream for me.

Windows 7? You'll need DOSBox to run any DOS-based games on Windows 7. That, or find an old 286/386.

Kronick2014-07-271 point DOS version

WoW !!! I was in 6th/7th grade when this game came out been looking for a few yrs for a copy. Always loved coming upon a river and deciding how to handle it. A lot of times would forge the rivers but not always the wise way to go. Current would usually tip you over and cost you supplies. LOL Oh well..
