If you are new to troubleshooting games or someone bugs you about it and you don't have time to fix their problem for them you can direct them to this. Very handy :)
Game crashes or closes unexpectedly
In practice I don't agree with the order of their steps though.
Personally, I reorder the steps. First check the game compatibility first because what's the point of even bothering to install the game if others have already done the work for you and know that it's not gonna work? Then go to steps 1,2 then 5,8,9 then 4,3 and whatever is left if all else fails!
