Good old/low req pc games?

Post by Oniak » Thu Apr 16, 2009 8:09 pm

Hey, I'm looking for some low requirement older PC games for my laptop.
It can manage to run call of duty 1 at a playable/enjoyable framerate.
Thanks

Planescape Torment was awesome. Kinda like Baldur's Gate with amnesia, lol.

if your laptop has a floppy drive, you should get the original doom or wolfenstein 3d

Doesn't have to be tooooo old, it can manage to run Hellgate london on low and maybe half life 2, I haven't checked. And no it doesn't have a floppy dirve, but I could just *get* it.
Oh and return to castle wolfenstien plays great on it too.

What are the system specs? (We can't really recommend anything semi-new unless we know.) Please take a screenshot of CPUz and GPUz so we can see what you have to work with. ;)

Half-Life is great, Unreal Tournament, Quake 3...

Warcraft II is great
So's Starcraft--both those games were made for older systems (10+ years old!)
