I think you should only list non-working games...that way a client can lookup a game that they are having issues playing and first see if it is indeed un-playable on their system. If it isn't than that gives them a clue that there is something wrong with their system...

Windows 10 Pro

I voted "Yes! make separate lists for all three sections" because a lot of users have questions about what "actually" works or don't work under 7.

I think it would also be a good idea to include the download links for the Direct X files, seeing that this is the most commom problem why a lot of games have issues.

Download details: DirectX Redist (August 2009)
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime

just my two cents :)

XP Pro/Vista Ultimate (64)/Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition(64)

I also voted yes for keeping all 3 sections, as I believe that with the price of new games it would be reassuring to know that someone else has tried it and it either works, or doesn't.
Perhaps instead of an entire thread with 3 sections, you could use something like Google Documents and just provide 3 links? The first post could perhaps then be used just for the latest updates, or not :)

@Home/Work: Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64

I think it's not possitive to delete the working games' list, because having a list of working games encourage people who want to upgrade to Windows 7 and doesn't want to risk his favorites games... games that could be displayed in that list.
Just to get the list clean and well-sorted, I think the better choice is to separate the games in the 3 lists we know so we can go directly to we want to know. :)
