Games broken by Windows 10?

Postby David_OSU » 2018-9-12 @ 16:31

Is there a list of legacy Windows games that work in Windows 7 but are broken in Windows 10? I've seen many comments on PC Gaming Wiki about games broken on Windows 10, but haven't found a comprehensive list.

No. There's no list. Which is going to be the answer just about any time you ask for a list for something and Google hasn't already given you one. List-making is not just this massive hidden hobby people seem to think it is.

I have tested a ton of games and can't think of any games I haven't gotten working in Windows 10. There's almost always some fan workaround and plenty of generic workarounds for all sorts of problems.

As for games broken out of the box... Probably a pretty huge number, though if you run updates on Windows 7 you'll catch a lot up to that number (secdrv disabling patch).

Thanks, teleguy, that spreadsheet is very helpful. There's a load of info in there.

I love making informative lists, but only when the subject at hand is easy to define, reasonably bounded and hard to dispute; none of which is true when it comes to game compatibility charts. I can only give a deep bow of appreciation to DosFreak's comprehensive spreadsheet and the huge amount of work behind it. 8-O
