Depends.

Windows 10 gets the best performance in newer games, but can be wildly unstable.

Its stability is largely dependent on the computer in question. On some it's perfectly stable. While with others it's a mess that crashes constantly. However it rarely seems to crash from games alone. The performance boost is up to 40% in some newer games over Windows 7 or Windows 8, as it has DX12 built in that auto-retrofits some small performance features to older games. It also has less overhead so games can use a bit more of the computer without windows getting in the way as much. 

 

Windows 7 has the best stability, backwards compatibility for older games, and performance in said older games. Which is nice if you play on a weak computer that only has enough power to play older games from around 2000-2010.

 

Windows 8 sits somewhere in between in terms of games. It can play new games slightly better then W7, but not nearly as well as W10. Its backwards compatibility is almost as bad as W10 though, but unlike W10 they'll usually launch and run....with a worse frame rate then W7 though. Lastly its overhead is also lower then W7 giving it slightly more performance in newer games, but it doesn't compare to W10.

 

You didn't say what laptop you have. Even if you did, I don't think anyone here could tell you whether or not Windows 10 would be stable on it. Which you should choose is up to you, and which you think fits the kind of games you play.

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

You need to specify what your PC specs as it depends mainly on specs rather than what system you are on.

I don't think there's a reason to consider 8. If you have a DX12 compatible card, go with 10 to avoid going through an upgrade later.

I think Windows 10 is more compatible for the newer games. Many features are upgraded in 10.

Hello Hosni! It depends on which games you want to play. Different games require different minimum specifications. If you are a hardcore gamer, go to win 10. Recently My friends who play games too much updated his PC to win 10 for playing Destiny 2. To know about Specification of game you want to play, You can Click here.

Hope this helps!
