The first computer games I ever bought, and I bought all three at Walmart at the same time, were Half-Life, System Shock 2, and StarCraft. I knew absolutely zip about PC games at the time, and chose those three because they had the most stickers on them. Game of the Year, Rated Best Game, etc. It was subsequent to this that I learned about video cards, as SS2 wouldn't run worth a darn with the video card in my computer. 2-4 fps at most. So then I bought my first video card, which was a Geforce2 MX, which ended up working perfectly for those games.
I never really got into StarCraft. I don't know why, as I think I might like it now. Half-Life and SS2 OTOH...wow. I loved them I had never played anything like them before, save for Final Fantasy II (now IV) and Zelda with regard to the role playing aspect. I liked the first three Splinter Cell games, but they aren't compatible with Windows 10, or at least one running 64bit.
I still have an older Dell that has Vista installed on the HDD it came with. A terrible OS, I know, but it does allow me to play older games that I can't play on this computer. I might take a look at getting StarCraft again one day.
I actually enjoy Windows 10. Not the lack of control over the updates, mind you, but I still like it. It took a little getting used to, but once I did, I was and am happy with it.
