All games run on Vista. There isnt a list or anything like that. Every game works. It is jsut some games are DX10 and you MUST HAVE a DX10 card to run them. Even if you have a DX10 card you can still play all games. I dont know what gives you the idea you can install older games.

^ correct you can also use compatibility mode to force it to work.. .and Vista will make it run like it would on an older operating system

That is so not true. Even the games that were made for XP run just as well on Vista. I lost MAYBE a Frame or 2 per second. But nothing more. If you cant live with a 2 FPS lose then you really need to think about why you game. Games run jsut fine if you have a system that can HANDLE gaming. Not jsut a upgraded machine. I am talking a real gaming rig.
