Windows 10 Incompatible Games List

Build 10041 is having a string of issues (SCII, Titanfall, Borderlands 1,2, &3, etc) with crashing during games or loading screens. Try reverting back to build 9926.

--------------------------------------------

If you're having issues try verifying the integrity of the game cache (right click>properties>local files>verify integrity of game cache), re-installing the game, or trouble shooting the compatibility by navigating to the local game file via Windows (Right click>troubleshoot compatibility).

--------------------------------------------

I created this list for folks looking for JUST the problem games. Perhaps this will help anyone working on Windows 10 to solve some of the compatibility issues. All games are tested by me, unless otherwise tagged. All content taken from my original discussion "Windows 10 Compatible Games List". This list will get updated less often than the original and will be updated as more games make it to this sad list. If you care to contribute, please feel free to do so but please post your rig's specs in the OP. 

I would prefer if you post in the other thread though and I will add them to this list as the bad ones present themselves. BUT if you must post here, please feel free to do so. Discussion is just that, discussion. However this list will not be for the playable games, so it might behoove you to post your findings over there unless it's only to post non-working titles. Pick up what I'm putting down?

Great job, man!

Don't forget to add Batman: Arkham Asylum to the list of incompatible games at the moment. Or, has anybody found any workaround to make it work on Windows 10?

In space no one can hear you scream.

I haven't tested that game. I will add it to the list, thank you. Have you tried right clicking on the game file (actual file location, not just through Steam) and run "troubleshooting the compatibility"?

quake2 original works for me, installed from CD

which versión of the CD is that ?

because I have Quake II Gold Edition 3.20 from original CD and It can't be installed.

version 3.20

yes, the game works, but from original CD Gold Editio 3.20 can't be installed.

this is 3.20 Gold Edition CD...

inside the CD...

you can execute setup normally and see this screen...

but when you click INSTALL, the setup turns black...

 and then closes itself after few seconds.

You need to setup to compatibility mode, the setup. Then try again , screen to 640x480, no scaling. Or I'm using NVidia, and you AMD. That could be the difference there.
Quake 3 arena works for me. No problems,

yes, the game works, but from original CD Gold Editio 3.20 can't be installed.

this is 3.20 Gold Edition CD...

inside the CD...

I have both disk the one you have gold, and the special edition. they both work.
