Abandonware DOS title

Games with full motion video sorted by release date

In the 90s the CD slowly became the main support for the distribution of video games. Floppy disks faded into nothingness and developer could stop trying to fit games into 20 disks, forcing gamers to disk swap. How to take advantage of the huge capacity of CDs? With lots of video, of course... and lots of less than good video games that used full motion video (or cartoons) as much as they could.
