games my laptop will run

#1huntley93Posted 9/14/2013 11:45:06 AM
Right 1st things first i am a student and have laptop looking to play a few games, i am not too bothered about playing games on max setting, just as long as they run smoothley. Also before anyone says anything getting a 1000 gaming only machine is out of the question as i am just a casual gamer.

my laptop is a dell inspiron

intel core i3-2350M CPU @2.30GHz

6GB Ram and 64 bit

my graphics card is intel HD

i know its probably not amazing but please just give me an idea of which games i will be able to run

You don't need to spend that much to game. Even getting a good i3, midway gpu, and 4gb of ram will suffice.

Counter-Strike is the only good multiplayer game because it isnt bs like most other online games. BF is cool too

Well, let's see...

Look up Source games, and you can play anything there.
Hitman games (not Absolution)
DOOM games
Torchlight (2 is better)
FTL
Mount and Blade series
Surgeon Sim 2013
To the moon (really enjoyed this game)
Dirt series
Star Wars games (mainly KOTOR)
Starcraft 2

...there's obviously more out there, but that is some of what's in my library.
