I played Killing Floor, TF2, Garry's Mod and all the Half Life games on a desktop computer from 2001 with an intel Pentium, half a gig of RAM and a mid 90s era low end graphics card.

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.
>>
>>258217972
How old exactly?
Anyway, emulators are always good.
Also perhaps you can play games like Baldurs gate or Blitzkrieg.

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.

To compare, I recreated that first screenshot once I got a new computer, out of curiosity.
>>
>>258220057
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.
>>
>>258221191
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.
>>
>>258222234
Might as well give it a shot, thanks anon.
>>
>>258222234
>>258222485

Here is the mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/17137/?

I think "first person runescape" is more accurate than "N64 game"
>>
>>258222778
That's... actually kind of charming.

dwarf fortress
>>
>>258217972

I've been playing a shit load of Mount and Blade Warband recently, even if you have a toaster you could still run it at lower settings.

>>258222778
It looks pretty comfy for some reason.
