Some favorites that have stuck with me for a very long time, which I have 
played within the last year.
Star Raiders
Star Raiders II (The Last Starfighter)
Star Raiders II (The actual sequel, just uncovered ealier this year)
Super Breakout
Star Wars (the Wireframe 3D one)

DOS (low spec 2/386)
Where in the <location> is Carmen Sandiego
Wolfenstien 3D

DOS (high spec 486/Penium)
Tie Fighter
Dark Forces
Might and Magic

(Okay, yes, I was a total LucasArts Junky for a while.  Dark Forces and 
the X-Wing/Tie Fighter twins are pretty much my favorite games of all 
times.  These run quite well in DosBox if you can't lay your hands on 
period hardware.)
