What are some
goodgames that can be played on a old laptop?
KOTOR1/2, Baldur's Gate, NWN 1, VTMB, Portal, Random indie shit, Metro 2033, Legacy of Kain, Gunpoint, Deus Ex, and Counter-Strike the first.
Used to only have a shitty laptop, now I have a decent laptop.
You can't handle the proof.
I got rid of the computer a few years back so sadly these are the only screenshots I have.
I could get Half Life this low, but the other games I just got 5-15 frames per second.
The resolution is so high because I was stupid and thought you absolutely had to play games at your monitors native res at the time.
First few GTAs (I've seen vice city played on a shitty school issued netbook)
Little Fighter 2 (hella fun with friends, up to 4 people per computer with controller support and netplay)
Red Alert 2 + Yuri's Revenge
First two Fallouts
Most of these can all fit on a 8gb flash drive too
To compare, I recreated that first screenshot once I got a new computer, out of curiosity.
Mine is about 5 years old now, I tried running Fallout: NV and could get just under 20 frames using just about any performance mod I could find and with file editing. I have got a DS emulator running, but need to download some more roms for it.
There are many performance mods for Skyrim, so you basically could play Skyrim if you almost can play Fallout NV.
There is even a mod which makes it basically look like an N64 game. Ask /tesg/ if you are interested. They should know where to find it.
I think "first person runescape" is more accurate than "N64 game"
