    How does it game for you?

    I've managed to install steam without incident, but i'm sure others will test other clients and possibly CD's in time, but has anyone tried gaming on Windows DP? I've tried Skyrim and it works flawlessly, albeit, I like mods for that game so I'll see how it copes with a few installed.

    I upgraded from 8.1 and haven't had an issue with any of the games I've tried. I've tried Diablo 3, Sims 4, Pool Nation, Watch Dogs, Trove and Tropico 3. Even GTA 2 played ok. It actually seems like my GPUs are running a bit cooler, but that could just be the ambient temps changing a bit.

    So far seems same as Win8 for me. But alt-tabbing seems a bit awkward. I think Windows gets confused because of multi desktops. Or it's me dunno.

    Indeed, all games, that work on 8.1, work on 10 just fine.

    Half-Life 2 and STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl working like a charm

    I will check Wolfenstein The New Order, STALKER Call of Prypiat, Portal 1 and 2, Bioshock 1, 2, Infinite, Burial at sea, etc.

    I haven't tried any modern games, but I figure other people will. But it runs both Roller Coaster Tycoon 1&2 and if that's not the sign of an operating system that can game I don't know what is.

    Wolfenstein the New Order, which IS a modern game runs fine too after installing DirectX.
    In a nutshell, every game I have, old as Half-life 1 and new as Wolfenstein and Bioshock does work fine.
    Unlike Windows 8 preview.

    SkiFree works. Only game I haven't gotten to work so far is the 2013 version of Thief.
