first_img Emma From ‘Friends’ Grew Up to Be Gorgeous The Hate for ‘Captain Marvel’ May Never Stop By Joel Hruska on July 19, 2019 at 8:06 am 28 Comments Half-Life 2Half-Life 2, released in 2004, is still recognized as one of the best first-person shooters of all time. Play as Gordon Freeman, a silent protagonist working to free Earth from the clutches of the insidious Combine, an alien invasion force. Half-Life 2 and its two expansions (Episode 1 & 2) will all run on virtually any system, but be advised — Episode 2 ends on a cliffhanger that’s never been resolved. <><><>1234 Lilly From ‘Princess Diaries’ Is 36 Now and Gorgeous This Is Where ‘The Man With the Golden Voice’ Ended Up As fun as gaming is, it’s not always possible to sit at the high-end of the market and play the latest titles. Whether you’re traveling with a lightweight system, using a secondary rig, or simply working from an old PC because you can’t afford an upgrade, we’ve put together a list of titles you can still enjoy, even from an older system.One of the greatest strengths of PC gaming is its backward compatibility. Thanks to the steady advance of system performance, even at the integrated graphics level, even modest machines from several years ago can enjoy a huge range of games today. The titles on our list below range from relatively recent games that run well on even modest systems to old titles that still hold up today.Keep in mind, however, that after decades of publishing, there aren’t just “20 great games you can play on laptops and low-end PCs.” There are hundreds, possibly thousands of titles that still run well on even low-end hardware. Travel back to the early days of the 3D era, and even Intel integrated GPUs have far more horsepower than the GPUs that powered games like Quake II or The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind. GoG has a huge list of games released from 2004 or earlier that would run well on even an aging Atom netbook today, and Steam has many of these as well. We’ve tried to cover a range of franchises and titles, from indie games to AAA releases, and with multiple genres represented.Without further ado, here’s the first part of our list:  So that’s our list. Feel free to chime in with your own. What older games or titles still have a cherished spot on your hard drive, and what games do you find yourself returning to, long after they’ve supposedly been surpassed by more recent releases?Now read:The 30 Best Free PC Games to Play in 2019AMD’s RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT Reviewed: RDNA Puts Radeon Back in the GameAMD’s Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 9 3900X Reviewed: Red Storm Ryzen Ginny From ‘Harry Potter’ Is 28 and Unrecognizably Gorgeous You Might Also LikePowered By ZergNet Kerbal Space ProgramKerbal Space Program is a simulator / game that tasks you with launching successful spacecraft and (if you choose) exploring your own solar system.

Terms of use. When it comes to Valve titles, we’ve decided to break things out into a separate list. Once upon a time (the late 1990s to mid-2000s) Valve was famous as a game developer as opposed to for running a massive PC game distribution service. In most of the cases below we’ve chosen to focus on sequels because oftentimes, they represent the pinnacle of Valve’s game design for a given franchise. Still, in all the cases we highlight, there were previous titles — a Half-Life to Half-Life 2, a Team Fortress to TF2, etc. If you’re looking for an even gentler title (a cubicle wall could run HL2 these days), these could well suit:  Mahershala Ali Gives Respect To Wesley Snipes’ Role As Blade Best Games for Laptops and Low-End PCs in 2019 We Finally Understand Why ‘Criminal Minds’ Got Canceled Actors Who Could Barely Stomach Kissing Each Other on Screen Tagged In gaminggamesPC gamingvalvecivilizationFalloutretro gamingclassic gamingHalf-LifebioshocksourceDarkest Dungeonlow-end gameslow-end PCsUndertale Post a Comment 28 Commentslast_img
