Using an emulator like DOSBox, you can play many DOS games that have gone out of date all over again!
But I'm wondering, can most DOS games from 1994 to.... 98 even, run on this device? For example, Daggerfall? I really love this game and would love to be able to play it on a plane or something with just this, a small Bluetooth keyboard and a portable TV!
I check'd the specs, and it all seems to be in order... but can it run on this, just to be sure?
There are many notable DOS games I would love to play on this... DOOM II, Civ, and Monkey Island, and Quake to name a few!
For the raspberry pi makers; you can download Daggerfall for free from the Elder Scrolls website, complete with DOSBox instuctions, in case you didn't know
It would be necessary to have an Arm port of DOSBox to do this - there are some available, but not sure they would work on the Raspi. However, it sounds like an interesting project, so might try and compile it once the HW arrives.
