It looks like we're set up to count Windows 10 games in the same bucket as Windows 8. Seems reasonable to me since there's not effectively much difference outside of the gamerscore increase.

Should we update the descriptions around the side... Just looking at the badges... Combining these will help me to get to that 100 games played on "Windows 8" badge.

No Windows 9 because of legacy code that is only looking for first 4 characters and would break. It's made for Win95 and Win98 (both win9x). That's what I heard on Giantbomb.

I think Fsh has a good idea to combine the two os games.

Windows 8 + Windows 10 = Windows 18

I never understood the separation between the "Windows" for games anyway. I mean, yea I guess you have to have it in the description to realize what platform to run it on. So I fully support the idea of just a "Windows" consolidated badge.

Would it include GFWL, too, then? I mean, that would be part of Windows...

I think they were classified differently at Microsoft possibly due to GFWL stuff needing the client to run, while all of the Windows games run right on desktop. I'm fine with keeping the PC and Windows categories separate, but grouping the Win8 and Win10 stuff probably makes sense.
