    Windows has compatibility mode as well really old DOS games can be run through Dosbox

    That wouldn't even make sense and there is DosBox.

    Dual boot or use a virtual machine program like VMware (dunno if that's good or not, just one I've heard of)

    seems redundant
    windows 10 doesn't have a "compatibility mode" like 7 did?

    you could also dual boot

    It does still have a "compatibility mode". Thought old games that used Safedisc, Securom and similar doesn't work anymore because these "copy protections" are like malware

    Wine that runs on Windows... Wouldn't that just be Windows then? All Wine is for is to run Windows applications as if it's native. Putting Wine on Windows would basically be redundant.

    And yeah, if you can't run it on WinX, you're best to make a Virtual Machine or use DOSBox.

    You can just use DOSbox if they're really old, or you can use a virtual machine running whatever windows version your game requires or if you are playing one of those old lucas arts point&click games(monkey island/day of the tentacle) you can use ScummVM. You can also just run the games in compatibility mode
