    I wish I could make Quake I run acceptably, preferably with mouselook. I bought it on Steam and then hammered at it for a while, but even with various mods I couldn't get everything the way I wanted it.

    ran it fine on max settings using a C2D E8400 and a GTX580. The cpu was overclocked to 4Ghz though.

    just use the quake hd mod pack:

    saves a lot of headaches.

    Grim Fandango. There is a way, but I just haven't got around doing it.

    WTF is all that complicated nonsense in the link you posted?
    Just use the Grim Fandango Launcher:

    Done. Took me 30 seconds to download the launcher and set up Grim Fandango in Vista when I first tried this out back in 2008.

    I bought a copy of Battleforge, once and somehow it recieved an error while it was updating. Tried it a few more times but no luck.

    The only two games I've had problems with recently are Binding of Isaac (slows down when there's a lot going on in the game) and Super Meat Boy, which recently decided it didn't like full screen mode and ran about three times as fast as it should.

    Both those I attribute to Team Meat being bad at programming (but good at making fun games when they run).

    Blur runs less than 20fps and my GPU is from last year or so. Not a big loss though since didn't really like it. Although at proper FPS it had been nicer I suppose. There are couple of games from this year which I've bought (like Sleeping Dogs) that I've not tested yet, but don't have high hopes.

    When I first bought Bulletstorm, it wouldn't run at all. Works OK on my new machine, though.

    There were significant compatibility problems with Tex Murphy: Overseer that led to it being unrunnable.

    GTA4 used to be like that for me until I upgraded my PC a year ago. If a new patch came out, or if I encountered some performance tweaks somewhere, I'd install it and then promptly delete it again when I failed to get it consistently above 20fps.

    Other than that, I don't think there are any games that fit the bill. Some things I try to run on max settings sometimes and my PC can't quite handle it, but usually I'm content to just sacrifice some graphical quality to make the game playable.

    The entirety of my Steam for Linux collection. But that's what Beta testing (and Windows) is for.

    Oh, I completely forgot. System Shock 2. Always wanted to try it, but the fan fixes didn't work for me.

    It's because they're Flash and Flash, frankly, sucks ass in gaming performance terms...

    It's been stretched to the limit really - it started-out as a simple multimedia animation tool and now people are making whole games with it - and Adobe really aren't interested in fixing it because they've just milked it to death.

    I've owned GTA IV since it came out on PC and have had around 3.5 builds since then. None. None have ever made it work.
    Oh and Planetside 2 just wont go above 15 fps. But then it's not so bad, I can't get over the pew pew pew plastic toy guns.

    Note - I was referring to the quality you get when it's running at a playable speed - you can certainly ramp-up the visuals (there are mods WAY better than that) but the game will be unplayable on anything short of a supercomputer.

    Also - there's a danger that Piers Morgan will appear in that screenshot - which scares me

    Discworld Noir and Bladerunner are two adventure games which gave me a lot of joy when i was but a wee lad, neither of which i've ever quite been able to get running in windows 7, or XP for that matter.
