    Instead of creating a thread focusing on Games you should have posted in already exisiting thread thats about Incompatible Applications, there are no reasons to have a extra thread for that, better have it centralized.

    Diablo 3 and WOW work perfectly with Windows 8

    I was going to do that, but i decided to start this thread instead, because games aren't really applications like Office or Imgburn.

    Glad you have games that work, but do you have any games that play up while running Win8?

    The only game I've tried on Windows 8 that won't work is Act of War: High Treason :/ however, getting it to work on Windows 7 was also extremely difficult so not sure if that counts.

    Planet Side 2 (Steam) maybe non steam too

    Problem: Fails on load
    Fix: place Dinput8.dll in the base PS2 folder, OR disconnect all USB devices load game then plug them back in

    Problem: UI strings are all wrong
    Fix: change regional settings to another language, start the game, quit, Change back to english.
