Is their a full list somewhere that shows xp/vista games thatworkfor 7

I don't want to post a thread every time I find a xp/2000/vista game & want to play on 7.Is their a list somewhere for this?I figured as long as 7 has been out,it would have been done by now.But I have yet to find that list.

There can never be an exhaustive list for what you are asking. If in doubt search for "game name & windows 7".

I found this.
Windows 7 Compatibility for PC Gaming: Action & Adventure Software Programs: Download Software Updates
Why is their a decent amount of games not able to run 64bit?I thought most games are ram hungry.

If you want to play older games on Windows 7 I'd suggest GOG.com.

Now to answer your question, in a very simplistic way, 64bit is a different computer architecture. Some games just "don't know how to run" without some additional patches to make it 64-bit compatible.
