Wow... If I had something like that... I would have certainly have formatted the heck out of it... (I've formatted for less, many times because I thought I had a virus, but really didn't even have one, also because my USB were crazy, wouldn't recognize my mouse on certain ports...)

I think you can pretty much find any game nowadays...
