What do you mean?
There are popular three computer systems with MS-DOS: IBM-PC (and compatibles), PC-98 and FM Towns.

ExoDOS is an all-in-one archive of hundreds of games, with DOSbox preconfigured. That link is to a category on archive.org where you can download games individually probably in their original formats.

The Commander Keen series.
Xargon, Electroman, Zone 66, Halloween Harry.

Duke3d, Blood and Doom. Don't miss Blood --
people here don't overlook it, but in general it doesn't get the attention those others do. Ultima Underworld. If you like rpgs, ultima 3 and forward, Might and Magic 3 - 5. Try an Infocom game for a while to see if you're into it.

If I had to recommend one game, I'd choose Sword of the Samurai. Oh god this game is great! Awesome art, awesome music, simple game mechanics and addictive as fuck. Please try it, you'll love it especially if you're into Edo era games
