  • Worms series (except for 3D)
  • Baldur's Gate series
  • Icewind Dale series
  • Freedom Force series (it'll be 3D, but it should be mostly okay...especially the first game)
  • Diablo series
  • Warcraft series (especially 2)
  • Red Alert 2
  • Dungeon Siege
  • Total Annihilation
  • Homeworld 1

Starcraft for RTS, Baldur's Gate for RPG, Doom for FPS, those'll keep you busy til you can get an upgrade.

Nox, Nox, Nox.

It's 3D, but reaaaaally reaaaaally simple graphics. It's "3D" in the same sense that Diablo 3 is "3D". Any comp puchased since 1998 or so can run it for sure. Very good game, a bit old now so good luck finding it... But if you do, it's easily one of the best RPG's I've played online, on par with Diablo 3 IMO. There's also a great campaign to go through with great replayability (3 completely different classes, each with its own start/approach to the campaign and story) - never played it on LAN but I'd bet a lot that it makes a great LAN game.

I think the Heroes of Might and Magic was 2d through the 3rd game. Heroes 2 and 3 are real good if you have hours of time to play them. They are very time consuming.

It's 2D game.

2D isometric with a few 3D things thrown in (it does make use of Direct 3D).

Two problems with this post:

  1. Fallout 2 is NOT playable over LAN
  2. This thread is 8 months old
