I know they aren't available on steam. But are the disc versions you can buy from amazon compatible with windows 7? They are old games, so I'm wondering if they will run properly, if at all.

if your os doesn't support older games you can always run a virtual os and run the games in that environment.

Have you checked GOG?

Yeah, I've checked GoG. No RE games available from there. AFAIK it's only the old disc versions available to buy.

There's no particular reason to play RE2 PC. The PS1 version is just as good, and way easier to get working.

RE3 on the other hand actually has remastered graphics on PC. Or rather, the PC version has the original, full resolution graphics, and the PS1 version's are downsampled from it. I have this, and I can play it fine on Windows 7.

Last I remember the games run like crap. I remember the videos were crappy and the sound was out of sync (at least on re2). This was playing on windows xp with a 7900gt. Better off playing a version on the consoles or using other means if you own the game.

Sometimes I have had good luck in getting games to run in WINE on linux instead of Windows. The advantage is that it gets full use of your hardware compared to a VM.

The sad thing is it is easier to play the ps1 version on an emulator than getting the original pc versions working. Good thing is that the emulator works a charm!

At one point gamestop had a digital pc download for RE3 available. I have no idea if it's still there though.
