Depends on the game. W8 is not compatible with a fair few older games, but W7 usually is. One of the reasons I like gog.com is that they put a bit of work into ensuring that old games are compatible...

With all due respect to the above 2 opinions, I've been a nub in more games than most. All it takes to get a positive k/d ratio (admittedly not the best metric of success) is to focus/specialise. I...

The ground in each one of those screenshots is a flat plane with one or two plain textures overlaid. That is terrible visual design. Levels don't have to look like the sides of a star destroyer, but...
