Sometimes even a diehard dual-GPU gamer needs a break from crazy explosions and complicated MMO macros. Windows 8's casual game selection can't match the deep libraries that Android and Apple maintain, but even so the Windows Store holds a ton of finger-friendly titles. How do you know which deserve your attention?
Simple: remember your roots. After checking out more Windows 8 apps than is consistent with human wisdom and reasonable sleep patterns, in order to identify the cream of the casual gaming crop, I've found that most of the best are straightforward ports from competing platforms. But whatever their origin, these games will keep you playing just...one...more...round...long into the night.
