Submission + - DOSBox or DOS box?

An anonymous reader writes: Are DOS game emulators like the highly-respectable DOSBox good enough now, or is there still no substitute for the real thing?

Like a lot of /.ers I'm getting older and simplifying, which means tossing out old junk. Which means The Closet full of DOS era crap. And I'm hesitating — should I put aside things like the ISA SoundBlaster with gameport? Am I trashing things that some fellow geek somewhere /truly/ needs to preserve the old games? Or can I now truck all this stuff down to recycling without a twinge of guilt?

(Younger folk who didn't play DOOM at 320x200 should really resist commenting this time. Let the Mods keep them off our lawn.)
