Abandonware DOS title

Games set in the American Wild West sorted by release date

Surprisingly, western is not a common theme in the golden era of PC video games. Sure, there are some good games set in the old West of the United States (and some classics too), but not as many as other games with specific settings like fantasy, horror, sci fi, even cyberpunk games. One of the early classics "wild west" game that comes to mind is Gun Smoke, unfortunately it was never published for a PC.
