Questions about gaming on a Windows 8 tablet

#1 Edited by Craig_Duda (10 posts) -

Hey everyone. Long-time reader of Giant Bomb, first-time poster.

First off, I am not a "PC gamer" so please excuse my ignorance on things related to PC gaming.

I just ordered a Samsung Windows 8 tablet (ATIV Smart PC 500T), which should arrive in a few days. I'm wondering if I'll be able to play any games on it. I realize I'm not going to be able to play any high-end games. No WoW, no CoD, no Diablo III, etc. I'm OK with that.

But will I be able to play older/simpler games? Maybe some old turn-based strategy games, RPGs, or adventure games? Or am I going to find that no games will run well (other than games designed for tablets) because it's a tablet and doesn't have the right video card and such?

I think you can run old games like:

Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Torchlight 1

Battle for Middle Earth 2

Farcry 1

and other games but no new games.
