    Welcome to Android Central! There's Prince of Persia Classic, although the graphics are updated. Along the same lines, check out Karateka, which essentially looks the same as the original Apple ][ version!

    And don't forget about Carmageddon.

    There's Knights of the Old Republic, and ofc both Baldurs Gates, and Icewind Dale. There's also Oddworld: Strangers Wrath.

    Morrowind is apparently getting an unofficial port by a modding team.

    A couple of the Jedi Knight games have unofficial ports already, but they require the PC versions for the game files (to keep it legal).

    If I remember correctly, Doom and Hexen have unofficial ports as well.

    Minecraft and Terraria are both PC games with Android versions, but they're not old and I'm sure everyone already knows about them.

    And you've already mentioned Bard's Tale, which is one of the best IMHO.

    The Nvidia Shield Tablet has some "exclusives" originally from the PC like Portal, Trine 2 or Half Life 2, but I doubt you want to buy a whole new device, especially as the Nexus 7 already has better build quality and perhaps a nicer screen. Just figured I should mention them anyway, for the sake of a relatively complete list.

    Emulation is a good possibility on the Nexus 7, though many phones may not be fast enough. Dosbox Turbo can very effectively run old DOS games, if you're willing to go through all the work to set it up on a relatively strong device. (I'm not that motivated...)
