  • GTA San Andreas

    GTA V which was released last year became a massive hit in the gaming community. But GTA V is far too heavy of a game to run on any average laptop. So we recommend GTA San Andreas , another game by Rockstar which many consider to be one of the best game in GTA franchise. It can have you spending hours exploring the city and unleashing havoc without even playing in-game missions.

  • FIFA 14

    Fans of football and gamers alike enjoy playing FIFA. FIFA 14 is a slightly older football game with the perfect balance of decent graphics and smooth performance on older PC and laptops. If you can deal with the outdated player lineups from your favorite teams then this can be a very fun video game for you.

  • HALO

    This is the first game of the series of HALO games by Microsoft originally developed for the Xbox back in 2001. It turned to be a huge success on both the PC and the Xbox. This game features stunning visuals(at least for that time), story and gameplay. It has the players carry out different missions in alien worlds.

Some other games with relatively low system requirements are Shank, Half Life, GTA Vice City and Unreal Tournament.
