    Default Master List of Game Support

    For a way of policing what games do and do not work in Windows 8 Shaming those companies who lack support, and warning Windows 8 advocates of games that do or do not work. I'm building a master list of games and whether or not they work that will be presented below. Please comment if you've got a game no listed and whether or not it works, please also comment if a game listed as "not working" works, or can be made to work. Note, if a game works for one person, but not another, on the same Windows 8 build it'll be listed as working as it's likely the blaim will fall on driver issues.

    Call of Duty 4 does NOT WORK! - freezes on load, and windows disconnects and reconnects mouse 3 times - then the games doesn't respond. CTRL ALT DEL - end task and we are back to the desktop!

    Spiral Knights is a F2P game, downloads in a few minutes.
    Basically when I start the game, either through Steam or the independent client, a Java window pops up saying:

    We were unable to initialize the game's graphical display. Please take the following steps to ensure compatibility:
    Visit the technical support forum for up-to-date information and suggestions.
    Make sure your system satisfies the game's minimum requirements.
    Update your video drivers.
    Ensure that hardware video acceleration is fully enabled.

    I've followed the game's Tech Support suggestions (found on their wiki/forum) but nothing has worked so far. I've also tried running the game in comparability mode, nothing either.
    (I really have no knowledge of Java)
