Erll some games don't run right without have to do crazy things like chat in-front of a full moon...(lol) still some games don't run unless you do some silly things like starcraft where I need to have a display setting window open in 1 specific spot
There's a fix for that if you go into the registry. Here's the post relating to it:
StarCraft fix holy cow!

The games presently on the 64bit 7 here range from 9+yrs. to 4-5yrs or longer, and a few more recent titles seen within the last year like FREAR2 and The 2009 sequel to RTCW called "Wolfenstein" released last summer.

Backward compatibility wise for the 32bit 7 and 32bit emulation seen with the 64bit 7 along with the way these games are generally written to be compatible with more then one version of Windows to start with all play a role.

Now if W8 follows that type of success many will be looking at it. For the time being however 7 is "standing tall" at this time and not likely to be shaken off that easily!
