Default Any way to play on a Chrome book?

It seems crazy that I can't play on my new Chromebook is there any way to get it loaded on to my computer?

I can't speak for all of GDS's games as I don't play them all, but TEW has a required minimum resolution of (1024*768) and requires Windows to play as it is coded in a Windows language. As long as you can meet those two requirements, you should be able to play that. It's no different from not being able to play Xbox games on a Playstation, and needing decent enough screen to be able to see things on.

EDIT: I meant to say that some people have found workarounds for various other formats using Windows emulating software or some kind of magnification software, but I'm no expert in that regard.

It didn't have Windows which I didn't know when I bought it but I just went and exchanged it so I could have Windows again.

This dumb Mac owner (me) would be interested in finding out more about possibly playing on Chrome as well.
