Probably diablo II, and maybe project diablo 2 as well (probably) and it's a ton of fun.

Game came out like 20 years ago so I imagine just about any current computer can play it.

This trilogy is short, but will run easily enough, and is free.

Well, good luck finding suitable games. Got any consoles to help keep you occupied until you can get your hands on other hardware, or PC only?

Oh ya, I'm at no lack for classics - I can hook up my actual nes/snes/and gamecube, or play the switch. or the nes/snes classics.

If anything, I'm just SUPER THANKFUL I was able to recover my passwords using this ancient pc's firefox sync.

GoG has a ton of good games from back then.

Try somethig like Giant Citizen KAbuku for instance, any of the old might and magics are great (especially cloud/darkside of Xeen), D2 like I mentioned, Balders gate 1/2 icewind dale, of dreamworks and gnomes (something like that) temple of elemental evil, Doom of course (maybe 2/3, hexen, original half life).

So many good choices and GoG usually has em for pennies.

Oooh fallout 3 and NV will prob work as well, thats always worth playing again even on a new comp as is the original Kotors!!

I don't know why I didn't replay Fallout 3 recently, I liked it - I think it was having problems because the PC that died was TOO good for it

Oddly enough, my PC self-destructed playing Fallout 4

Oh, that is something. Well, that link I provided will have plenty of suggestions, though unsure how much of the site was backed up before it shut down. Has loads of free games, though some were demos. Could run stuff on even older computers than that one. Something to do if your consoles aren't entertaining you.

I don't have a gamepad because this old ancient PC only has 1 usb slot and I need it for either the keyboard or mouse (the other going in the analogue port)

Once it patches ima try Left 4 Dead 2 since that thing ran on the PREVIOUS previous computer to this one, and that thing had a GeForce 4 AGP card

If it makes you feel any better, I picked up on that, and would have contributed to it if the joke hadn't already died by the time I saw this topic.

depends what you mean by "without a video card". you can't even see the BIOS without one.

assuming you mean "minimal video card":
Spiderweb Software games (Avernum aka Exile, etc.)
Creeper World games
Crashlands maybe (maybe too much video RAM needed)

Maybe these, but I guess need gamepad:
Hotline Miami games
Mega Man Legacy Collection

Other random suggestions:
Fallout 1 & 2
Doom/Hexen
Zachtronics games (strong recommend)
Death Road to Canada (probly need gamepad)
Myst/Riven
Might and Magic 3-9
Civilization 1-3
Age of Wonders 1-2

I'd say Starcraft but it will only run on 64-bit systems if you want it up to date and online.
Diablo games are great
Civilization 2 and Alpha Centauri
SimCity 2000
FTL

civilization 2

dungeon crawl stone soup, traditional roguelike that still receives development/updates, and can play inside a web browser. Its a top favorite of mine. I have a Gtx 3060 ti and I still play this game.

So trying to avoid doubling up on those already mentioned, Battlezone 1 and 2, Dungeon Keeper 1 and 2, Age of Empires 1 and 2, Age of Mythology, Gothic 1 and 2, Disciples 1 and 2, Heroes of Might and Magic 1-3, Divine/Beyond Divinity, Soulbringer, Empire Earth 1 and 2 (maybe 3 as well, but apparently that one isn't great), Quake 1-3, Unreal 1-2 and Tournament, Total Annihilation and TA:Kingdoms, Rage of Mages 1 and 2, Monopoly 3, Star/Freelancer, Soldier of Fortune, Kingpin, could all run on potato skins.

You can run Doom on just about anything with a screen. Even a Canon printer.
