    You can resurrect all games from WXP, WVista and W7 (x64 and x32) (Only Internet Hearts and Internet Reversi (both from WXP) don't run, I was able to port them only to WVista and W7).
    Also whole Games Explorer tool still works (MS now uses it for settings storage of Metro games too). You can also run "Games for Windows Marketplace Desktop" with few mods.

    Just my opinion, but the new "Microsoft Solitaire Collection" in the Windows 8 store is a pretty good game, as are its brethren Mahjong, Minesweeper and TapTiles.
