    Is Windows 10 worth trying for games?

    Honest question: is it worth updating to windows 10 now? is the difference noticeable? I have windows 8.1 and tried windows 10 a couple of months ago and i thought it was complete garbage, forced updates, crashing starting menu, it felt unresponsive compared to windows 8.1, didn't test it on games since i uninstalled it immediately.

    If I were you I would wait for the RTM to be released and then do the upgrade. The majority of games play on WIn10 and here is a list of them so far that have been tested:

    I wouldn't bother if you have a lot of games. I had to revert back to windows 8.1 because some games were just straight up crashing and wouldn't work at all. 2 games that didnt' work: Rust and Heroes of the Storm.

    I would not judge Windows 10 yet ... too new and not RTM as stated.

    Lol? He asked a question and I replied. He asked if it's worth installing for games and where windows 10 is at now its not worth the headache if you're playing a lot of games. Some games are going to crash until drivers and OS is more stable. Wait for RTM.

    The only games I had on my laptop were the Microsoft Games, Hearts, Solitaire, etc... with this latest upgrade those no longer work. The upgrade deleted the executable game files. Then I tried the Edge for www.msngames.com and was told to use another internet explorer. Glad to report the Edge works great for the competition: www.(censored).com.
