For those of you changing to Win 7, either from XP or Vista, here’s a list of games that work for me within Win 7, my machine spec is in my signature. Thought this may be helpful to people wondering whether to upgrade or not.

All these games are installed on my machine now and work well:

Wolfenstein
Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood
Flat Out (Racing Game from Steam)
GTR Evolution
Race 07
Half Life 2 Episode One
Half Life 2 Episode Two
Half Life Two
Left For Dead
Mass Effect
Portal
Dark Messiah Might & Magic
Half Life
Half Life Blue Shift
Half Life Opposing Force
Team Fortress Classic
Team Fortress 2
Microsoft Train Simulator inc London SE Add-on
Dungeon Siege II
Dungeon Siege II Broken World
Bioshock
Call Of Duty 4
Call Of Duty 5
Fallout 3 GOTY (includes main game & 5 add-ons).
Oblivion: Elder Scrolls IV
F.E.A.R. 2
GTA IV
Halo 2
H.A.W.X.
Microsoft Flight Simulator X

Painkiller Overdose
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 + 2 add-ons
Civilisation IV
Civilisation IV Warlords
Unreal Anthology comprising:
a) Unreal
b) Unreal 2
c) Unreal Tournament
d) Unreal Tournament 2004


Not yet installed and/or played through but which work in Win 7:

Syberia
Call Of Juarez DX10 version
A Vampyre Story
Timeshift
GRID
Crysis: Warhead


And those are all the games I’ve tried in Win 7, I haven’t tried a lot of older games.

If you’d like to list any other games that work in Win 7 here, please do, it may be helpful to other people.

If the game only runs in compatibility mode please point that out as it often won’t work for everybody, depending on their hardware spec. Thank you.

It may also be a good idea for people to list games that will not work for them within Win 7.
