    While MSVC++ by far has the best IDE of any compiler, there are quite a few better compilers out there, such as the GNU, or the Intel compiler.

    if you want to make good DOS games,use DJGPP, tc is good, but itīs a little hard to use lots of memory, another choice would be watcom, itīs the one that was used to develop Descent.

    For windows, use Allegro for Windows, DirectX or OpenGL, I recommend DirectX because you can have Input, multiplayer and 3d sound all in one
