There were at least a couple of versions of tetris that ran in text mode.

I should have an old enough version of Nethack somewhere. I remember it
included instructions for running it on non-PC MS-DOS machines and a
premade config file for DEC Rainbows. I got it running on a Wang
Professional, but I usually played it on a PC.
