I thought of creating this article in the wiki, but I need some suggestions, since I don't know too many so far. I know a lot of/most old CGA games need a 8088 4.77 MHz, but I'm talking newer than that, because since the 386 era, most games seem to play right on much faster CPUs than what was common at their release. Therefore, I'd like to limit it to roughly 1990+ for the most part.
Only original releases, no source ports. If a game has patches which enable it to run with faster CPUs it should be noted. The ones that I know of are Descent (runs too fast), Descent 2 (mouse sensitivity bug on high framerates) and for Windows games Wipeout XL aka 2097 (supposedly has a patch which fixes it though). Jazz Jackrabbit needs the TPPATCH utility and runs fine with that.
