Team Fortress 2 works great on Windows 8 Developer Preview. I have yet to test out my other games, but I assume all Source engine games should work too.

City Of Heroes works perfectly fine in it. Had to upgrade my NVidia 9600GT drivers from the included MS ones to the Win7 ones, but except for that, no issues whatsoever, but I admit, I've not hammered the thing from the Metro UI point of view... I'll do some of that later.
