Can PC games created for Windows 98 be able to work on Windows XP?

Its a 50/50 on that it all depends on the game, usually it best to go the website of the game and check for compatibility. Usually a patch allows for play on XP.

Failing that Windows XP has compatibilty Mode which recreates a Windows 98 Enviroment, that may allow the game to be played on XP.
