doom.
the original doom.
That's a game which is compatible for anything DOS related, unless it was made before 1993.

It'd be great for playing DOS games like Theme Park, Duke Nukem...but 100% depends on what kind of games you like. 98 is a great version of Windows, though! Have you installed Revolutions Pack?

That exists? Wow. I never knew you could actually do that with Windows 98. If only there's an XP version of it, so my XP virtual machine wouldn't be slow.

Did someone say Windows 98 gaming PC?! I got a video of someone putting 98 on a modern PC and playing Minecraft on it.

It seems like one of those OS videos where somebody transforms it into a modern one. Pretty cool, I might say.

GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas are better off with either Win 2000 or XP.
