My newest laptop came with Windows 8

And all the games at the store except one or two says it's only compatible with up to Windows 7. I really wanna try out Dishonored and I need to be sure my money won't be wasted. Also, should I get a mouse or an Xbox 360 Windows controller? And will that even work on Windows 8? It says "supports until Windows 7"

Dishonored plays perfectly fine on my Windows 8, and so do all 32 games I own

Google it.

99% of the games that work on W7 work on W8.

The Steam store page for Dishonored lists:

Recommended:
OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7 (enhanced for 64-bit OS)


I don't see how that means it won't support Windows 8. Chances are, if it plays on Windows 7, it will play on Windows 8. And most of the time, developers list the minimum OS you need to have to run the game, not the latest one supported.

So, again, I don't see why Windows 8 won't be supported. In fact, it is. I've played through the main game and the two DLCs with no problem.

Almost everything works with Windows 8. Usually just very old titles don't. Only way to know is to do some research on each individual game. Just assume that the game works if it was made in the past 6-7 years.
