There is apparently a problem with Windows 8.1 where it sets your mouse polling rate to 125Hz. Most gamers have their mouse polling rate at 500Hz or 1000Hz. Since it polls as much as 8 times less, you will get mouse lag.

Wow. I don't really play the games they listed but that's BS anyways. There better be a hotfix from ms fairly soon as that's pretty unacceptable imo.

Looks like it only affects games that don't have raw input. There's a solution that works for some games that can be found if you go to the articles source.
