You never know until you try them. Throw em in and give em a roll!

My guess is you will probably be fine. Report back here if you need help however.

Tried them straight out of the box,no luck.Apparently they aren't compatible with any of the Windows operating systems.They were made when "DOS"was the mainstream operating system.I discovered "DOSbox",an emulator program used for games designed for dos.It's quite complicated(unless your familiar with the dos operating system used before windows). Is there an easy way to configure DOSbox?

DOSBox is a really simple solution and I congratulate you on trying it out. Check out our tutorial on DOSBox here: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/freeware/friday-fun-how-to-run-dos-programs-or-games-from-windows-7-vista/

If you want to get even more advanced, you should try installing a real MS-DOS on something like VMWare. It will be way more time consuming but the chances of old games running correctly are WAY higher.
