I have a touch screen PC and I was wondering if anyone knows of any games I could play using the touch screen. Maybe any websites that have free touch screen games to play.

Thanks!

Something like AOE would be ok with touch screen, I would assume.

Assuming you can right click any game that can be played with mouse only will work if you want free games go to a flash game site like miniclip.com and plenty of games that will work with only a mouse and keyboard if you have have firefox get the flash maximizer plugin for fullscreen flash games and videos.

As a rule most 2D adventure games and casual titles work very well on touchscreens.

@Mister_Mackey: You should check out GestureWorks Gameplay! https://gameplay.gestureworks.com/

This software allows you to not only create your own Virtual Controllers for almost any PC game for any touch device (running Windows 8 or higher), but you can also download Virtual Controllers that other people have created as well for different games.

1) Periods at the end of sentences make you much more easily understood.

2) Your assumption is not accurate. Touch screens work through absolute positioning on the screen, whereas mouse movement is relative movement. Games designed for mouse movement do not necessarily work well with touchscreens. Fallout 1 and 2 do not work well with touchscreens at all (clicks don't register properly, you can't use the touchscreen to scroll and pan your view, etc).

To the op: Pretty much anything on the Windows 8 store will have a touchscreen control scheme option. Beyond that, some Steam games work decently like PvZ, World of Goo, Crayon Physics, Fieldrunners 1 and 2 (mostly), the Sam and Max series, etc. Civ V also has a touchscreen control option.
