Zeus Master of Olympus + the Poseidon expansion.
Have you played Sierra's other city builders, like Emperor? They're good stuff too. All very much the same game, but it puts a different flavour on it and keeps it fresh. You'd also probably like Children of the Nile; it's newer, but a great spin on the city-builder genre. And it had some impressive visuals for its time- beautiful cityscapes.
I was showing a friend GOG yesterday (they were looking for SimCopter, which GOG ended up not having), and I was wowed all over again by their library. The RPG section alone is a list of classic after classic. Both Baldur's Gates? Check. Planescape? Check. Fallout 1+2? Check. Arcanum? Check. VTM: Redemption? Check. Any Might and Magic you might care for? Check. Deus Ex? Check. Ultima 7 (also, 8 and everything earlier!)? Check. Stonekeep? Check. It's outstanding. Most of the other sections are similar (though nothing is QUITE as impressive as their RPGs), although the Sims are a little light, I'm unfit to judge the sports games, and there's still no damn Lucasarts games in the Adventure section (no Monkey Island, no Grim Fandango, nothing. Why, Lucasarts? You put some Monkey Island action on Xbox Live. Don't lie, I know you did. Why not let me buy it again for my computer?).
Mostly though, it's an absolutely killer selection. I could never play any games ever again except games that are on GOG right now, and while I'd miss out on sweet new games, I would easily have enough great games to keep me highly entertained for the rest of my life, and that is not a hyperbole.
BEST GAME EVER! I also had a 286 (PCs Limited before it was called Dell) with a Hercules monochrome monitor ... I remember finally saving up enough for an original Sound Blaster and VGA card / monitor. Made the game even that much better!
Note: You can get the whole series (Quest for Glory) on GOG.com now for $9.99... They recently released it.
