    I've installed and played -

    Walking Dead @ 1600x900
    Portal @ 1600X900 with a lot of options on *high*
    Deus Ex @ 1600X900, 32-bit textures on.

    And don't forget about SNES8X - the SNES emulator for Windows 8!

    Because I don't want to see this thread die I've got a couple to add. Most are steam games that can be purchased fairly cheaply and work with touch - No mouse/keyboard required!

    Defense grid: The awakening - Works great with little to no configuring. Played 1 level at 1080p, High detail, full screen.

    Magic the Gathering 2013: - Works ok, button presses require a swipe or double tap. Had to break out my keyboard during the tutorial to type H for hint, otherwise very playable. Played tutorial at 1080p full screen

    Spectromancer - Works great once the screen is configured (use 1024x768 option when game is launched). Played demo match, no video options available.

    SpaceChem - Works great, just remember to check the "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" checkbox on the game shortcut. Played 2 tutorials using full screen;
