Games are even more fun in Windows 7—watch this video to see how. (1:02)

The Games Explorer in Windows 7 was redesigned to satisfy both casual and hard-core gamers alike. You can now elect to get software updates and news feeds for installed titles. The Games Explorer also tracks wins, losses, and other fun stats.

By popular request, we've brought back three of the most-loved multiplayer games from Windows XP: Internet Checkers, Internet Spades, and Internet Backgammon. All three are included in the Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7.

If you enjoyed these games in the past, you'll like them even better now. In Windows 7, each title features slick new 3-D graphics and numerous game play improvements. Look for these and other Windows games in the Games Explorer, which has also been redesigned for Windows 7 to offer game updates, statistics, news feeds, and more.
