Which version of MS Windows is best for mac gaming?

Hello everyone. With Windows 8's metro UI completely turning me off, I was wondering which version of Windows would be best to run on Bootcamp and/or Parallels Desktop 7 (virtualisation) for games?
My brother swears that Windows XP is still the best for gaming.
Windows 7 on the other hand, seems to be the latest "stable" version of Windows.
Now despite the ugly metro UI, if Windoze (oops)8 runs games any faster... then I might ~actually~ consider that (when Mountain Lion comes out, I'm sure it'll support Win8, right?)
The games in question? The really heavy ones of course! Diablo 3, Dirt 3 (or 4 when it comes out), Need for Speed, RAGE... those kinds of games.
Currently running Lion (10.7.4) on an 2.2Ghz quad-core i7 (early 2011) Macbook Pro 15" (with 1680x1050 resolution), 1GB Radeon 6750, 8GB RAM.
