About Windows games

Microsoft Windows is one of the most popular platforms in the world for playing video games. However, the sheer variety of Windows PCs, and the complexity of Windows itself, can create technical problems and generate a lot of questions about which games you can play.


Windows Games FAQ

Wondering if your Windows PC can run the latest games, or if there's something you can do to make your PC speedier? We have answers to these questions and others.

  • Witcher 3 Wild Hunt game
  • How do I tell if a game will run OK on my Windows PC?
    As a rule, the games on Download.com will list specific requirements, if needed. You will see these listed in the Full Specifications section, which you can expand by clicking on the "+" button along the right-hand side. Within that section, there is a sub-section labeled Additional Requirements. If this entry says "None" next to it, then the requirements are relatively minimal. If such a game runs sluggishly on your computer, it may be time to consider some upgrades.
  • How do I find out what kind of internal components are in my PC that can handle games?
    While Download.com tells you what you need to run a game, it doesn't tell you what you have. For this, you need a utility that will scan your PC and produce a report for you. Speccy is one such program. It will give you the name of your CPU and graphics device, tell you how much system RAM and storage space you have, and more.
  • What are my options if a game isn't running well?
    There are several levels of fixes that you can try. One is just to make sure that you don't have resource-hogging programs running in the background. Or if you need more system RAM, you can usually add a stick or two, or replace lower-capacity sticks with higher capacity ones. Windows laptops frequently have a section on the underside where you can access the RAM sticks directly, without having to actually take the machine apart. Laptops aren't designed to let you upgrade the CPU or graphics device.
  • Where do I go on the Internet to find out what games are good?
    Gamespot and Giant Bomb are Download.com-approved websites that are dedicated to video games. Gamespot has a section dedicated just to Windows games. You can keep track of Gamespot's latest news by following them on Twitter or on Facebook.
