For compatibility issues with games that are not designed for current generation hardware, like DOS games on 64-bit Windows, fixing garbled Windows XP–era Japanese games, or legal ways to play old console games. This tag also covers backwards compatibility features in consoles, like the PS1 chip in the PS2. Do not use this tag for identifying old games; use the [game-identification] tag instead and follow its tag info.
