Did you get these games from Steam? I found that games distributed by GoodOldGames usually work pretty well on Windows10. I have a dozen of them and never ran into an issue.

GOG releases often includes compatibility and even unofficial community patches. You can generally assume that even their old games will work on modern computers.

Fallout 3 being an example, where Steam states it is only compatible with Windows 7, and the Steam reviews guide people to the GOG version which apparently works fine with Windows 10.

(It's weird that Fallout 3 is an 'old game'. Am I an 'old man' too?)
