Useful Notes / Windows Games

Go To

Games that need Microsoft Windows to run. It's been popular since the early 1990s, and is now a requirement for playing almost all modern PC games (with macOS and Linux support slowly becoming more popular). Theoretically, a modern machine is compatible with all of the games listed; however, many need fixes due to changes that have been made over the past 25 or so years, with the very old 16-bit ones requiring an emulator on 64-bit systems due to support being axed.

This list is sorted by minimum OS version necessary (at least, the one listed on Minimal Requirements). Many of these will still be compatible with later versions, but some may not. Games that are compatible with DOS and Windows should be listed on the IBM Personal Computer page under DOS Games. Web Games should typically be listed on that page since they're often playable on all systems as just about all internet browsers on all systems should be compatible.
