    I'm not sure where to put this since it's not quite a laptop/PC and it's more than a tablet but does anyone have any recommendations for games that run well on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4? Are there any good games that run well on an SP4, particularly via touch-screen? I do also have a wireless keyboard that has a laptop-style touch pad on it. It's running Windows 10 and I am open to all genres.

    Only thing I've run on my SP4 is WOW and it ran excellent with a mixture of Medium and High settings at the screen's native resolution. I used the type cover and a mouse to play it.

    A puzzle game that just came out last week that I love, Samsara, available on both Steam and the Microsoft Store, works perfectly with touch, $15.

    Should qualify that my SP4 has the i5-6300U, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD.

    Stardew Valley
    Factorio
    Rimworld

    That's like 200 hours of your life between those 3 games, easily.

    I've had a Surface Pro 1st gen for a couple years. Civilization V is the only game I really play on it and it works very well. I only use the device itself, touch controls are great.

    I just got Civ 6 recently so I haven't tried it yet but it wouldn't surprise me if it was just as good of an experience though.

    Hidden Folks. It's on Steam. Kind of like a Where's Waldo, but is very fun. Works on my Dell 2 in 1 no problem.

    Good recommendations so far. Looks like I already have Factorio, Civ 3 & 4 and SpaceChem in my library. I think I'll add Civ 5, HackNet, Hidden Folks and Rimworld to my library.

    I may have to check out hacknet too.

    Also Terraria is good for life wasting.
