    I'm going to start compiling a list. See my signature at the bottom of this post for exact MBP's specs I have. PC is by means of Bootcamp and Windows 10. Ex= Excellent, Good, Minimal, NO, S=Steam.

    Additions are welcome, I'll add to list.

    Updates to List:
    • 25Apr17- Added Age of Empires 3, Europa Universalis 4, Sim City 4.
    • 19Apr17- Added Borderlands 2 and War Thunder.
    • 5Jan17- Added CS:GO, Mad Max, Civ5 and others in classic section.
    Titles:
    • Age of Empires 3- (PC/S) Works well at medium/low settings. Also works on OS X using Wineskin. (reported by joy.757 using a 2012 13" MBP)
    • ARK: Survival Evolved-(PC,S)= NO
    • Borderlands 2 (Mac/PC, S) Good! Reported by 960design, Apr 2017.
    • Conan Exiles (PC, S)- Not yet tested, but due to steep graphic requirements, I assume no.
    • Counter Strike:Global Offensive- runs like a charm: Native (!) resolution and maximum (!) settings give me solid 50-60 FPS on my 2016 13" MBP (Iris 550). Reported by MrUNIMOG.
    • Europa Universalis 4: (Mac+PC/S). Works on Medium/Low settings. (reported by joy.757 using a 2012 13" MBP)
    • Fallout 4- (PC,S)= NO
    • The Forest (PC, S)- Min
    • Lego Jurassic Park series (Mac/PC, S)- Not yet tested, but I assume yes.
    • Minecraft (Mac/PC)- Ex.
    • Mad Max (Feral)- Good. Runs surprisingly well on my 13" MBP (Iris 550), even though it misses the game's hefty system requirements (2 GB of VRAM!) by quite a lot. Reported by MrUNIMOG.
    • Planet Coaster (PC, S)- I assume NO, but not tested.
    • Smite (PC, S)- Good.
    • WarThunder (Mac/PC, S)- runs okay, 1280x800 and low to medium settings on MacOS. Reported by Mr.UNIMOG Apr2017.
    • World of Tanks (PC)- Not tested yet, but I assume yes.
    Classic/Old Games
    • UT2004 (PC/Mac, Steam version is PC only)- Ex
    • Civ V, Fran Bow, Year Walk, FTL, Tharsis, Oxenfree, Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Grim Fandango Remastered- run well, reported by Cougarcat.
    • Simcity 4: (Mac+PC/S)- Really old game. Ported by Aspyr. Works well on Medium settings. (reported by joy.757 using a 2012 13" MBP)

    I've played Civ V, Fran Bow, Year Walk, FTL, Tharsis, Oxenfree, Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Grim Fandango Remastered. All worked fine, but all old games or simple indies, so no real surprise.

    I assume, but could you confirm it's the 2016 MBP 13" you are talking about? Thanks. :)

    Ferals fresh port of Mad Max runs surprisingly well on my 13" MBP (Iris 550), even though it misses the game's hefty system requirements (2 GB of VRAM!) by quite a lot.

    Perfectly smooth on half native resolution (1280x800) and low settings, and doesn't even look too bad.

    Have yet to try the game in Boot Camp, probably performs even better then.

    Also, CS:GO runs like a charm:

    Native (!) resolution and maximum (!) settings give me solid 50-60 FPS on my 2016 13" MBP (Iris 550).

    How about Battlefield 1, maybe a few COD games and WoW: Legion?

    I started this thread, but am discovering that I'm currently playing no games regularly on this hardware. I'll continue to post updates to the first post if anyone cares to provide their data.

    WarThunder runs okay, 1280x800 and low to medium settings, not too impressive framerates though.

    Didn't try in Boot Camp.

    I play WoW on my 2016 nTB MBP.

    Runs well at 1920x1200 (connected to external monitor) at mid settings, doesn't look too bad either, FPS isn't too smooth but playable, macOS version.

    Borderlands 2 runs pretty fantastic on my MBPr15 late 2013 - steam version I believe

    I have tried these on my 2012 13". I think they should work fine on the 2016 13":

    Age of Empires 3: (PC/S). Works well at medium/low settings. Also works on OS X using Wineskin.

    Europa Universalis 4: (Mac+PC/S). Works on Medium/Low settings.

    Simcity 4: (Mac+PC/S). Really old game. Ported by Aspyr. Works well on Medium settings.
