I made a thread a couple days ago looking for a good PC game that could run on my laptop and I had some specific games I was looking for, but I am still having trouble choosing a game from that thread.

So could you guys post ALL good PC games that has low system requirements?

Classic retro games are what you are looking for like:

Starcraft
C&C red alert 2, original, red alert, tiberian sun. (so get the 1st decade)

There are alot of other games, but posting your requirements would really help. I know those will run probably.

Can't think of too many, Warcraft III and Starcraft..

If you want online, WoW works on anything, but I wouldn't recommend it... it's way too addicting.

There are way too many great PC games that run on "low system requirements". The question in this thread is what type of game are you looking for?

If ever the world came to a end and all I was left with was a low end PC with WIN98 and five games on it I would hope that those games would be:

Thief 2

Pirates! Gold

Fallout 2

Civ2

Unreal Tournament

How about Hexen? Looks so much better now with the doomsday engine! Plus there's loads of mods/extra maps available. xmrb2003x

And also the doom games run fine on the same doomsday engine. Plus Heretic. I wish they would update other games like this!

Torchlight
Age of Empires II
Deus Ex
Half-Life
Diablo II
Starcraft
Warcraft III
Unreal Tournament 2004
Alpha Centuari
Grim Fandango

You'll be happy with any of those. Really just pick any vintage PC game worth playing and you'll be set. There's no shortage of cIassics out there.

Fallout 1 & 2 have already listed above several time, so I will add

Arcanum (developed by some of the Fallout people)

Dosbox + Master of Orion 1

Master of Orion 2 or Dosbox + Master of Orion 2

NOT Master of Orion 3 (generally sucked)

Dosbos + X-Com "1" UFO Defense

X-Com3 or Dosbox + X-Com "3" Apocalypse

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic (aka KOTOR)

NOT KOTOR2 (needs a decent video card)

age of empires 2, rise of nations will probably run on most pc's too. UT99 though the graphics are dated but still one of my favorite games of all time.
