    That's awesome. I've been trying to find a list of touch-optimized games. So far the only thing i've come across is Civ5.
    BTW, my 128Pro JUST arrived today so i'm excited to test this thing out! :) :) :)

    As my Surface Pro is my first PC in 5-6 years I'm looking at all the games from the past decade and being able to plug in an Xbox controller. Just spent the morning getting Street Fighter 4 to run, turns out you need to install DirectX from Microsoft and it plays best in Windowed mode. Full Screen, 800x600 and maybe 1024x768 is playable.

    Also downloaded the Dreamcast collection and Space Channel 5 plays fine.

    I love being able to plug in the Xbox controller. Tried gaming with touchscreen controls and it's a waste. Some games make sense with touch like Wordament but on screen control pads are horrible.

    That list was so awesome, that I had to convert it to an excel spreadsheet for reference. Here's a text file of the list which I made comma-separated. I couldn't upload a .csv, so I saved it as a .txt.

    Are there any programs which can be used to emulate a mouse with just the touch screen? I would love to be able to play many games which should be touch compatible, but aren't, like Back to the Future. Not sure if this has been asked already, but I couldn't find it if so.

    I'm wondering how some of the older (90s) games would work on a pro!

    Just to add to this list, and confirm some of the games from the reddit link, I can say that Just Cause 2 runs surprisingly well on the Pro. As does another favourite in my office, Virtua Tennis 4. Also this Youtube channel has a great series of videos of games running on the Pro. SurfaceProGaming - YouTube

    let me add that yesterday I installed a great game that was on sale on steam. the company 2K is having a huge sale that ends today. I bought the game called The Darkness 2. it plays very well on my pro. I can even run it at full 1080P resolution with graphic textures on high with no issues. with my xbox controller, im doing some serious quality gaming on my pro. of course when I do game, I always have it in high performance mode. the pro is no slouch and its also a very capable gaming machine. don't sleep on it. I have the games installed to prove it. a lot of them being newly released ones like Outlast and they all have great very detailed graphics.

    They made a second one!? I never got on with the original The Darkness game tbh... damn hard though, if you like a challenge.

    I just downloaded and installed another great one on my pro. Steam had a huge sale on it. Couldn't resist.

    I now have Crisis 2 installed on my pro. With it hooked up to my big screen with resolution set to 1360x768, I think. it plays and looks very good. Still stoked at how I'm now able to experience this game I've always heard so much about. The graphics are sick.

    I want to get Dishonored but I couldn't resist Crisis 2 only costing $7.49 on steam. I still may get Dishonored or Devil May Cry 4. I need to go on and beat some of these games to make more room. My memory card filled up with steam games and I went and added another steam library on internal storage.

    Another one to add to the list. Also a great example of how the pro can handle even newer games. I just installed, DmC aka Devil May Cry 5. Just released for pc in 2013. IM running it on the pro at 1280x800 resolution with hd textures on high and graphics on ultra. Game plays really really good on my pro. The resolution even still takes up the whole screen. Not sure if this is die to my scaling being at 150%. Either way, the game looks and plays fantastic. I've realized some games are better optimized better than others regardless of recommended specs. Can't wait to hook this up to my big screen later and play. This is playing so well I believe I can get away with using full 1080P resolution and high or medium graphics. I will test this out later and report back. I a, so loving steam right now with its great sales. This game is on sale now and I only paid around $12 for it. Amazing for how well this game looks and plays. Surface pro is a beast! I don't care what anyone says, it could function as a bonus gaming device also. I have the games installed as proof.

    There's a great game on sale on steam right now. Its called Dust, AN Elysian Tale. Only $5.10 its a beautiful action rpg platform game. Pro plays it at full resolution and graphics settings maxed out with no problems. The graphics and game play are really good. Anime style. Plus the game is only like 1.5gb in size.

    Agree with previous comments - a secondary list of touch enabled/optimized games would be good.

    Can confirm SP1 runs SSBB with Dolphin Emulator at full speed (60 fps) with 2 players and most maps. With 4 players, speed drops down to ~70-80% full speed.
