DOS (/dɒs/, /dɔːs/) is a platform-independent acronym for Disk Operating System which later became a common shorthand for disk-based operating systems on IBM PC compatibles. DOS primarily consists of Microsoft's MS-DOS and a rebranded IBM version under the name PC DOS, both of which were introduced in 1981. Later compatible systems from other manufacturers are DR DOS (1988), ROM-DOS (1989), PTS-DOS (1993), and FreeDOS (1998). MS-DOS dominated the IBM PC compatible market between 1981 and 1995.
Microsoft introduced an operating environment named Windows on November 20, 1985, as a graphical operating system shell for MS-DOS in response to the growing interest in graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Microsoft Windows came to dominate the world's personal computer (PC) market with over 90% market share, overtaking Mac OS, which had been introduced in 1984.
The NES was originally the Famicom, or Family Computer, and it was released in Japan in 1983. There, it sold over 2.5 million units during its first year on the market. Developer Nintendo, a former collectible card company, then decided to expand its interests globally. Executives knew Western markets would be difficult to utilize. The video games industry was in shambles so stores would be hesitant to stock a new console that likely no one would buy. Nintendo planned properly. Firstly, Nintendo agreed to buy back unsold consoles so that stores would not be liable. Secondly, they developed a peripheral known as R.O.B. the Robot that could be used with two of its games (Stack Up and Gyromite both are awful but they served their purpose). With R.O.B, the NES was disguised as an electronic toy, not a video game system. Finally, they redesigned the Famicom and renamed it the Nintendo Entertainment System. The console was released in the United States on October 18, 1985. It was an instant success in no small way due to one of its launch titles: Super Mario Bros.
The Master System (abbreviated to SMS) is a third-generation video game console that was manufactured and released by Sega in 1985 in Japan (as the Sega Mark III), 1986 in North America and 1987 in Europe.
The original SMS could play both cartridges and the credit card-sized "Sega Cards," which retailed for cheaper prices than cartridges but had lower storage capacity. The SMS also featured accessories such as a light gun and 3D glasses which were designed to work with a range of specially coded games.
The Master System was released as a direct competitor to the Nintendo Entertainment System in the third videogame generation. The SMS was technically superior to the NES, which predated its release by nine months in North America, but failed to overturn Nintendo's significant market share advantage in Japan and North America.
TurboGrafx-16, fully titled as TurboGrafx-16 Entertainment SuperSystem and known in Japan as the PC Engine, is a video game console developed by Hudson Soft and NEC, released in Japan on October 30, 1987, and in North America on August 29, 1989.

Definitions of "abandoned" vary; generally, it refers to software no longer available for legal purchase, or of a certain age.
Software companies may change their names, go bankrupt, enter into mergers, or cease to exist for a variety of reasons. When this happens, product rights are usually transferred to another company that may not sell or support the software acquired.
Det aller første i en lang rekke spill med Adol Christin i hovedrollen, en rødhåret eventyrer som alltid klarer å ende opp på en eller annen strand med hukommelsestap...I Ys: The Vanished Omens møter Adol en spådame som sender han ut på et oppdrag for å finne de seks bøkene av Ys, som sies å huse en hemmelighet. Det tar ikke lang tid før vi finner ut at de er alle stjålet av Dark Fact og at Adol er den eneste som kan hanskes med ondskapen.
Ys introduserer spillere til en litt uortodoks måte å angripe på, sammenlignet med andre rollespill. Her "dulter man borti" fiender for å nedkjempe dem, og helst fra en skrå vinkel eller bakfra for å unngå å ta skade selv. Spillet har fått en rekke oppfølgere samt re-masters, og serien er kjent for et solid lydspor.
