    Been trying a few old games on my PC since putting Win7 on

    Winners:
    NFS: Most Wanted
    Half Life (original not source)
    Quake III [Win 98/Me Compat]
    Unreal Tourney 2003
    LOTR: Return Of The King
    CSI (3 Dimensions of Murder)

    Loser:
    LOTR: Fellowship Of The Ring - refuses to load at all no matter what compat setting I choose..

    Still to try:
    Soldier Of Fortune
    Half Life 2
    Fahrenheit
    Halo
    Unreal II

    Quake III - I still have that lying around somewhere. Hours of a fun! Shame about Quake 4 however!

    After a lot of trying, I finally managed to get Theme Hospital working under Windows 7. It took some niggling with display settings and compatibility mode, but I'm currently in nostalgia heaven!

    Love theme hospital by Bullfrog i think it was. Not really so keen on the newer flashy version that came out after it. Loved making the rooms and decorating them.

    I wonder if i could find a copy of powermonger and populous, now they were real games!!

    World of Warcraft has worked fine since the pre Beta.
    Source based games work fine, eg Half life 2, Team fortress.
    Call of duty 5 is fine.

    Need to try all the Discworld Games - though not hopeful

    DW1 - never liked anything but MS-DOS (possibly 9x with a bit of persuasion)
    DW2 - Fine on 9x but hated XP onwards
    DW Noir - fine in 98 and XP - but not liking Compatibility Mode
