Is there a way I can get any games working on Windows 7???

I have just gotten a new laptop, and my friend was generous enought to give me a stack of incredible new games for PC. However, none of them can run because they aren't compatible with Windows 7. Is there anything that I can do to fix this? I don't want to have to downgrade Operating Systems just to play games but I just don't know what else to do...

Welcome

Here you go my friend, hope that you will enjoy.

You should feel very pleased. New OS (the best in my opinion) and a lot of new games.
