    Minecraft!

    Those two should last you ... forever.

    Torchlight! The devs did a fantastic job with this one for older and less-capable PCs. I had Intel Extreme Graphics 2 or whatever on this Dell laptop that never had updated drivers (was several years behind the reference drivers) and has convinced me never to buy a Dell again....

    It ran Torchlight great!

    Could not run Titan Quest more than... 10 FPS?

    But ran Torchlight 40+

    Great game. Probably works wonderfully on little tablet computers too.

    endless space should run ok.

    Also, I think Sword Of The Stars 1 was pretty decent on a laptop from 2006.

    Yes, trying to play Minecraft on my aforementioned anti-gaming machine has sabotaged my ability to get any enjoyment out of Minecraft. Still kinda don't like it, and the poor performance and stutters are intrinsically linked with the game in my mind.

    It failed the Dell craptop test

    Assault Android Cactus, as it's optimized to play on really low specs PCs. I'm guessing you'll need at least a dual core and DX9 though. :P
    It has a demo for testing anyhow. But not a 2d fix type of game mind.
    It is a technical difference, but's there none the less.

    My criterias are a bit different : I'm looking for games to play while in class (yes...) so the requisites are :
    - Only using my laptop integrated chip
    - Not too many keypresses (my keyboard is noisy)
    - No extensive use of right click (my right click on the touchpad is horribly noisy)
    - Anything not too intensive and attention-consuming

    So far I've played the heck out of NEO Scavenger and Heroes of Might and Magic III and it's perfect. Bionic Dues uses the rightclick too much, a shame.

    try oolite - http://www.oolite.org/ - free remake of elite, it has modern texture packs for people on gaming pcs and stuff, but on your laptop you could run it frontier style with solid shading and shadows etc..

    I played Gunbound relentlessly throughout my undergrad lectures. Had the best GPA of my life and was taking the maximum number of credit hours

    I guess I could try Hearthstone. I found the game a bit dull and boring but maybe it makes it a good class game !
    Hope the servers are not blocked by my university's firewall though.
