Default Re: A old computer needs games!

You could probably run Halo on it. The minimum requirements for the game is like a P3 700 mhz processor, and 32 mb T&L card. It probably wouldn't run all that great, but you were just asking if it was possible. My friends like those simulation games, like Ragnarok and Red Alert. I personally go for the fps, but only have Halo right now. Try getting CS 1.6, if you like shooters.

Wow, I forgot about starcraft!

You can basically buy any game that requires less than 256MB of RAM and less than a 1GHz processor and 32mb vid card..

You'd get different experiences with the speed, performance and whatnot of each particular game. If the computer is old, you might want to go with older games that are made for those type of computers, or just buy more RAM or something.

cs 1.6 would probably run, possibly day of defeat 1 (1.3 to be precise i think...)
