    Re: Vista Compatible Games List So Far

    I haven't posted any games. The games that are on here I don't have. Thats is
    why I asked the question. I want to buy a new computer and have about 500
    games that are 3D XP games. I just wanted to know if anyone knows if they
    will work. Should I list a few?

    ok he is telling me to check a site before posting the obvious. That to me is
    rude. My mom is looking at buying a new computer. she has downloaded all the
    games and jsut wanted to know if she would be able to play them on her new
    computer. We really are clueless about all this. I have no idea where to look
    to get this info. The only reason I posted here was because someone told me
    to. Thank you for all the input but I can not find the info I need on the
    other site. But what has been posted on this one has helped. I got my answer!

    I think your mum will be fine with the games playing on her new computer, if
    not and she is having problems then please post back here or on
    www.vistareadygames.com with the problems and I'm sure your mum will get the
    help she needs.
