Definitely System Shock 2.

Deus Ex.

Quake 2 with your own soundtrack. Trust me, it's awesome to play it that way. Just don't listen to Britney while playing or you'll make the game sad...

Baldurs Gate with EasyTutu & Baldurs Gate 2. Planescape Torment. The reason I'm not suggesting Fallout games is the tedious combat and crappy graphics.

Play Mohaa. I think it's less graphics intensive than CoD and imo it's a better game, but that might be nostalgia talking.

Try the first Unreal SP-game.

Plenty of adventure games to play. A lot of them have unique graphics and require next to no power hardware-wise.

WarCraft III might be able to run on that computer.

Edit: In fact, it definitely will. My Laptop runs it pretty smooth on 1024*768 and it has 256 MB of RAM, 1.4 GHz Pentium 4, plus an Intel Integrated chip.

I think it requires more RAM to play it online though,which is the main attraction of the game.

Correct me if I'm wrong though.

artur79

I don't get it. How can you recommend Baldur's Gate - a game with tedious combat and crappy graphics - and not also recommend Fallout?

Personally, I think Fallout has the most fun turn based combat in any RPG (I hate D&D rules so I'm super biased, but whatever!), and while the visuals aren't exactly beautiful, the game at least doesn't fill the screen with gigantic UI windows.

I don't want to seem argumentative, but you're completely wrong. Everything besides System Shock 2 is on either Amazon, Steam or both. And System Shock 2 is easy to find by just googling System Shock 2 download.

Now, admittedly, some of the prices of those games are a little unreasonable (the US seems to have pretty poor budget/re-release publishing compared with the UK, where all of those games are much cheaper), but in most cases, I think the quality justifies the price.

I hate the combat in Fallout-games. Personal preference, I guess. I mentioned easytutu for a reason. Higher resolution gives better image quality and a bigger eh... field of view if you can call it that.

:P yeah ur right. But I do doubt that he has only 256. Besides, you didn't expect me to play it online with that piece of junk, did you?

No matter what you play or don't play, defintiely try Deus Ex. It's one of the best FPS/RPG games ever made. Stay with it even if the graphics are dated. You are not going to regret it.
