    This is my answer as well. I have run into identical problems playing older games on Windows 7 and Windows 8, while newer stuff has all run as well as a given system can run it.

    Yep, same as above, have run into zero Windows 8 issues gameplay wise, and I've tried the majority of my catalog, both new and old. It's a really good OS, has been more stable over all than 7. I hate it gets all the flack it does from the silly Metro interface.

    For some reason I've only had problems with games that have Games for Windows - LIVE. Kinda weird, maybe it was just me... Everything else ran flawlessly.

    No problems for me on Windows 8, except some old games that wouldn't also work on Windows 7.

    And yes, the Windows 8 is much faster, even if the usability is horrible.
