Consider that they might be pretty lucky to have found a hardware/software combination that works.
I for one had a very stable experience of running Katawa Shoujo Act 1 v1 on ReactOS v3.10 on my ECS K7S5A Pro (and even made a YouTube video of it). I didn't try installing any drivers, but the software did indeed work. I would also imagine the stable software I discovered later with ReactOS in VirtualBox would also work as well (iDeaS and Ever 17).

I may be a rare case, but it still shows that it's not as unheard of as you may think.

I dont use reactos all day, but I have it installed and running on an old compaq I had sitting around. I love testing old games on it as I dig them up.

But was this originally for testing purposes, or what there a good reason for playing it in ROS rather than Windows?

Stability testing, lulz, and bragging rights.

Btw, Heroes 3 also work.

I like lulz. It's the same reason I played iDeaS on ReactOS inside VirtualBox. :P (I made a video of it too, but if I keep linking my iDeaS, Katawa Shoujo, and Ever 17 videos every time I mention them, it's going to seem like I'm spamming)
