hi sushi! any games that can run in my laptop?

specs: intel celeron, 1.60 ghz, 4GB ram.

thanks for replying!


tt and zsnake are pretty good


maybe you could run mount and blade warband if you keep the settings on low


m&b kinda sucks at low battle sizes


Momodora Reverie Under the Moonlight
Stardew Valley
VA-11 Hall-A
GTA San Andreas
Emulate old games


What kind of games are you looking to play though, because there's plenty of ancient games that are still pretty good. There's also tiny indie games like Val-Ha11-a which I…think should be able to run on that? Problem if there is any is that I assume you're running XP or something.

What's with the computer from 2001 though? How is it even still alive?

Anything off this list will do

Gothic 1 and Gothic 2

Wait, did this thread travel in time? I remember seeing OP's image a long while ago on this board


Battle for Wesnoth is free and runs fine if you're into TBS. Crosscode is great and checking the recommend specs it looks like you should be able to run it, if barely.


Playing SNES and Genesis games is better on a laptop than an actual console.


OP here, thank y'all for replying!



i dunno tbh, i thik that i can play any kind of game (if this craptop meet the requirements)

and about the laptop, dunno, in my country the tech stores can sell to you any kind of piece of junk and they call it "gamer, this laptop was a gift from my mother for my 14th birthday and now i'm 17 :P.

sorry for the (surely) broken english


There's stuff like FreeCiv
You can even just run fuckoff old games in general, plenty of ancient goodies around. Should be able to run AoE 1 and 2 (the CD originals) and such.


Do they sell new games from 2001 too? I'd kind of like to get a hardcopy of Giga Wing 2 at a reasonable price.
It'd be cool if there was some country I could visit where everybody was still playing Quake III and DAOC and PSO on Dreamcast.


Op here, once again :P

>>1185 nah, they only actually sell games for the past and the new gen.

>>1173 yeah, i'm actually playing va11halla pretty neat tbh, about gta sa, dear god, it was my childhood (i know it sounds like a cliche but it's true) u remember the ol' days in my gray ps2 slim :') that game brings me some good memories. And about minecraft, i promise that i tried, and it is unplayable even in the minimum fov and with a 8x8 texture pack.

Unrelated but i'm playing muse dash, it's hella (do you actually keep using that word?) Funny.


Minecraft is suprisingly demanding, especially in later patches.

I used to play that on a Core 2 Duo equipped Macbook around 2010 or so. Even then it ran poorly with a low render distance. My much newer desktop struggles sometimes with minecraft, but it works a lot better than it ever did on my old laptop. I never noticed a difference in performance between 8x, 16x (default), and 32x texture packs on my systems, and optifine or other mods never made much of a difference either.

I agree with the earlier posts. Older games should run well. Old games from GOG should already be patched up so they can run well on newer operating systems, and old retail releases often have community patches or fixes to make them run, but not all games will run well without emulation (or at all). Some requires features that are not available in current CPUs and GPUs.

When I had an old or slow system, I'd mostly play SimCity 4 (limit the game to a single core, it crashes if you don't), The Sims 2 (this game requires fixes on newer hardware and operating systems), source games like vampire the masquerade: bloodlines, dark messiah, halflife 2, and other contemporary games.

Modern source ports of 90s games can run well too. Quake through quakespasm, yamagi quake 2, duke nukem 3d through eduke32, and doom, doom 2, hexen, and heretic through gzdoom (there are other engines like prboom+, but gzdoom supports hexen and heretic too).

Some newer games might run well too. Some of these might be a bit sadistic/hard tho, and they're not all that new. Dustforce, Devil Daggers, Torchlight, Banished, Cultist Simulator, Darkwood. Banished is definitely a great game if you like something more comfy and relaxed.

Some of the more retro looking (new) games have surprisingly high system requirements, so I don't know how well they would run on your system. If I knew exactly which Celeron you had, it would be easier to tell.

Never pay full price for games (now is the perfect time, GOG has a sale right now, and steam will have one starting in a couple of days or so). :)


I found darkwood didn't run too well on my low spec laptop

Deus Ex 1

never pay for games, you can find it all on rutracker.org


Oh my God JC
A bomb


Try Baldur's Gate I and II and Neverwinter Nights


Emulate old SNES, DOS and GBA games. Otherwise get some GOG games like Deus Ex and anything else made before 2008.
