Try DosBOX or WinUAE to run Pinball Fantasies and Pinball Dreams... by example.
Thanks, that was my backup plan but I was hoping for something simpler and more advanced. I opted for Extreme Pinball and Epic Pinball as these were games that we played on my 486 machine when I was a child.
I installed DosBOX on the RPi3 and tried both of them. The performance was good, until I tried to use full screen on a FullHD monitor. Then I compiled DosBOX from source and configured it based on a topic here: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=95421
The performance did not seem to improve after that, so in the end only Epic Pinball was fast enough with normal3x scaler in windowed mode.
My father is happy that at least he can play a pinball game but I'm still trying to find even better solutions.
