Older games and Windows 8

Postby psychedelicsim » February 11th, 2014, 2:19 pm

This thread is for anyone who is looking to see if some older games work on Windows 8.

The Sims 1 - Installs and works, but you can definitely tell it is an older game. Lots of glitches, but screenshots can be taken. Installed using The Sims Complete Collection.
