Since "Casual Games" are pretty much all I play anymore, I wanted to get some input on Windows 7. I currently have windows vista, and am quite happy with it. I can upgrade to windows 7 at any time. Does anyone have any insight into this? Is windows 7 better, same, or worse for playing casual games?
If you're happy with what you have, why change it? There are games at Big Fish that list XP/Vista as compatible but do not mention Windows 7. That doesn't necessarily mean they won't work with Windows 7, but there are some people at Big Fish who are having trouble -- especially with their older casual games. If you do a Google search for
"windows 7" site:bigfishgames.com
you can find threads in the Big Fish forum where people are having trouble. Whether the problem is Windows 7 itself or the drivers being made for it, the result is the same.
You know what you have is working for your games. Unless there is some other reason besides games that makes you want to change to Windows 7, there seems little point in taking the risk of losing a few of them.
