Free games for Crap PC's
« on: August 22, 2017, 10:27:34 PM »
Hey Guys!

Looking for! As the title states, free games (or even cheap) titles that your average PC can handle. I have 2 laptops that I will be handing down that have first and second generation i5 CPU's 4gb ram, and Intel HD 3000 (and I forget the other card) LOL.

I have a copy of Mario forever installed as well as GTA VC, but was wondering if there is any free titles that can be run smoothly on a PC like this. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

As far as titles that will run, too many to list. Pretty much older games if free for play will probably run fine.

What about asking the end users who will be receiving these laptops what they have for game interests and then have a more refined focus of games?

FPS Games that come to mind:

Alien Arena is free and will play on that and its sort of like Unreal Tournament with online multiplayer death matches as well as solo play against AI bots. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_Arena_(video_game)

Warsow is free to play and also like Unreal Tournament with online multiplayer death matches  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsow_(video_game)
So many flash based games will run fine through browser on these that dont require install.

One online free to play game site that I like is Wellgames where I play a math game called Digitz through here: https://wellgames.com/free_online/digitz/
I like the game in that you can compete with others to piece together mathematical puzzles such as the number is 14 and you have to pair up 7 and 7, 6 and 8 and 9 and 5, or even combination sums like 7,6, and 1 etc to get rid of all the blocks before your opponent does or not compete for who goes out first but play it intentionally messing up so that you can go for a massively large score as for when you mess up it adds more number blocks so you can sort of exploit this in the game for a very high score as long as you can keep the math going to keep solving them etc.  ;D

One game that is optional install that my girlfriend got me playing was Puzzle Pirates. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puzzle_Pirates
