Can i play the sims 3 on windows 8?

★★★★ Novice

Hi I was wondering if i would be able to play the sims 3 on origin on windows 8. I heard that some people cant play it and that some people can. I saw a video on youtube showing how to get it to work and that you have to right click on the launcher and click properties and then compatability and then windows 7 but since i have the sims 3 on origin when i click on the sims 3 launcher it pops up origin insted. I want to get a new computer but i want to find out if i will even be able to play the sims 3 on it. Plz reply  Confusedmileyhappy:

well for the origin shortcut right click then check the properties tab-compability  but some of my games are disk and the others downloads and they all have the game shortcut icon on the desktop and thats where i did the right click properties tab-compability mode run this programe in compability mode for windows service pack windows XP 3 and also admin rights for origin and the game
