    Default Recommended games for notebook

    Hi

    Most of the games i currently play are graphically intensive and need a hi spec pc to run them.

    Are there any games that people recommend thar run comfortably on a modern though basic notebook.I play many different kinds of game so genres not so important as the fun factor.

    Thanx

    Welcome to the forum,

    Try Trackmania Nations ESWC(free) -arcade-racing game. "New" game and great graphic yet somehow runs okay on my old(ancient) laptop
    Latitude D410. 6 years old notebook that did not have a built-in optical drive when built.

    recently iv been enjoyin COD2 which when in dx7 mode (still looks fanastic!) can be played with full settings and at a nice speed on this laptop. So should scale down nicely on other laptops.

    Halo Combat Evolved runs fine on integrated graphics. It and many other games can easily be torrented.

    Well I just started playing WarCraft III - The Frozen Throne again. I think it's a great game to play, so try it out if you've never played it before.
    It's an RTS.

    If you want to play online with me just PM me here and we can play sometimes.

    Be aware of the fact that "Trackmania Nations ESWC" doesn't work on Vista, because of the stupid StarForce incomparability with Vista, I've tried, but with no luck, even with updates for both the game and StarForce.

    Age of Empires II is pretty cool. It'll even run on integrated graphics.
