I've been wanting to grab some games off gog that are going really cheap, but I noticed some games that were originally XP games like F.E.A.R. don't have windows xp labeled in their minimum system requirements.  I was wondering if anyone here could confirm if support had been removed or if gog had just stopped listing it because xp isn't being supported anymore.

Steam is cuting XP users by end of year, so i guess gog is just joining the flood , which is realy idiotic, since most of games they sell are XP or older .

It's the latter, I'm afraid, but you should be able to play them on XP anyway without much issues.

FEAR Runs crap on a 2.5GHz Laptop with 7...
I doubt you'll have much luck...

However, do a search for

F.E.A.R Complete

http://fear-complete.ml/

This May work on XP but I ain't holding breath

Hey ZX81.. the "FEAR Complete edition" you mentioned is a complete Mod for the Game (I think it's a standalone download, but I'm not sure).

It pretty much makes the Game harder, by increasing Enemies accuracy and becoming bullet sponges. They also add new Enenemies from FEAR2 and E3Demo, new weapons, Iron sights, aswell as more debris, bullet shells, etc.

A bit more info here :

Update: I tested F.E.A.R., and it still works fine on windows xp. It's OK. I don't really get what people got so worked up about it for, though.
