PC games for a crappy laptop?
Can't imagine this thread hasn't already been made, but I figure I'd ask again. What are your recommendations for low-spec PC games that one can play on a terrible laptop?

Go to GoG, pick games from whatever era you prefer.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

If it'll run on steam's linux section, it'll probably run on a crappy laptop.

You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0

^ well done! :DThe Secret of Gargoyle Manor, a browser point-and-click adventure about retrieving your lost hat whatever the cost, is something you could play!

I usually play Icewind Dale II on my work laptop. It runs great and works surprisingly well for short play sessions.

You can probably play rather more than you expect to be able to on a terrible laptop.Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

I'm in a similar situation right now. I basically do what Gundato says and browse my GoG collection. There's also most indie games.

I recently gamed for almost two years on an outdated laptop. I'm actually quite happy that I did as I discovered some classic gems and the AAA games were still waiting for me when I returned with a new PC and the advantage of hindsight with many reviews and patches out on the games I missed.
I won't recommend since you have named no genre and the game possibilities are enormous.

Can you specify your laptop specs and your genre of preference? There are some brilliant games from the old eras. Recently I've been rediscovering some old gems myself. Warlords Battlecry 3 (Man do I wish to see a more contemporary spin-off of an Rpg/Rts blend), Age of Wonders 2 (the sequel due next year looks exciting), Tzar (this game's awesome).
