    You can't set a restore point to an earlier date without time travel.

    You can restore using a system restore point that already exists and so was previously created.

    Your game may not run because of compatibility reasons, corruption, driver problems, applying the anniversary upgrade.. many possibilities. No guarantee using a system restore point will fix this, unless you are confident you know what's happened.

    Good one, Dalchina! If you get that time travel thing figured out, please let us know. I'd have used it repeatedly on several of my systems already...or maybe I already did?

    I used to use Time Travel until I became more confused than I already will be.
