    Do you mean the PC booter games? Those actually date from the era where the norm was booting DOS from diskette, so by doing it that way they avoided having you to even need to run DOS at all (just boot straight off the game). Doing it this way was actually pretty common among computers at the time (some other computers would go as far as having cartridge slots, like MSX).

    If you mean the games that need dedicated CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT to free up as much conventional memory (low 640KB) as possible, yeah fuck that =P

    No I don't mean those, though these days you can use FLOPPER! to overcome that.

    Yeah those, fucking bullshit games.. I really wanted that one game in my DOS gaming menu, but I can't because of the damn 640KB crap!

    I tried looking into stuff like CWSDPMI/DOS4GW/DOS32 in hopes of creating a virtual environment for that one game but I don't think that's how those programs work. :/
