Yeah ... you would think so, but I've had a few games thus far that didn't take kindly to the resolution.
For example: Red Faction Guerilla wouldn't even start. Saints Row 3rd took an unnecessarily large performance hit, Grid doesn't like the resolution (Steam games), and Assassins Creed (1) crashed and now refuses to accept my 360 controller as an input (funnily Skyrim also doesn't recognize the controller, and the character moves at a snails pace when it is even plugged in when playing Oblivion, despite running 60fps solid).
So yeah, was just looking for some game suggestions that are tried and tested to work flawlessly at the resolution, preferably slightly older games that might not get the obvious recommendation that comes with titles like BF3 or Skyrim etc.
Thanks for the helpful consideration
Don't know if you've played them but the Batman games are very fun and look awesome on a high res screen. Assassin's Creed Revelations was fun on a big screen as was Beat Hazard, any of the Crysis games, Dead Space 2, Driver San Francisco, Just Cause 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Metro 2033, Mirror's Edge (use of color is amazing), both Portal games, Splinter Cell Conviction, and the Walking Dead. All fun games at 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 (or really any res ).
