Dark souls should have problems enough for pc

boot times for 8 are ridonkulous

Metro is just a giant quick launch bar which is pretty cool

Windows 8 is actually better for gaming because it supports newer versions of DirectX. Battlefield 4 system requirements anyone?

If you have 7 there is no reason to go 8.


It uses less RAM and boots faster. Few other under the hood improvements as well. Only drawback is the UI and that's subjective.

Simply put, I'm planning to install Windows 8, my only concern is game compatibility. I recall there being some trouble with different games, and I just wanted to ask if people perhaps knew what all games with issues are, or if perhaps there is a master list somewhere.

Thanks for any help.

Hmm, thanks for letting me know, but fortunately, I'm pretty sure I'm done playing those games, so it won't be a problem. Among my concerns would be Fallout 3/New Vegas as I recently started playing those.

I'm not quite going to do it yet though, due to classes today and such, so I think I have a good 5-6 hours or so from now until I start preparing backups and such before I install Windows 8.

I have a Win 8 PC, and I have no issues with Sleeping Dogs.

Problems with textures and shadows sounds more like a GPU issue.
A fan is confident in the game they prefer being able to stand on its own merits.
A fanatic attacks the opposing game showing insecurity in the game they like.

I can confirm that both games have zero issues on my end.

There are no issues when it comes to games for Windows 8.

Only issue with that OS is it's really meant for tablets and is just very awkward for desktops and laptops.
