    I just got Vista, and am going to "up"grade from XP. But before I do so, I want to make sure my games will work on Vista. Can you guys verify if those games will work in Vista?

    Found my answer in the Excel spreadsheet linked to here.

    why would you post that in 'apple games' forums?
    xp and vista has nothing to do with apples/mac

    I might be wrong, but I see some posts here about PC games.

    I didn't actually look over your list, but as far as I understand and have experienced, vista has backward compatibility for all xp games. Just the 3d aero(translucent windows, window flip, etc.) sometimes conflicts with games. I have vista and turned off 3d aero and have yet to find a game it couldn't play.:apple:
