The best programming games

Back in the 80s, programmers didn't have software with a visual interface like Eclipse or Visual C# to help them writing code. Programming software ran in DOS and the user had to get used to a text-only interface and a black screen. No Windows and almost no aid of any kind. The Borland Turbo series was one of the most popular suite of programming software.
