Steam Games for netbooks

My netbook is pretty weak considering how long i had it. My specs are on this site. I'm sure that this place provides more info than i can give you.


Heck it even some flash games have some lag.

I don't mind what you guys suggest; shooters, platformers, RPG, dating sims. Just put what you think is fun and believe it will work according to my specs. I will also accept games outside of steam, but i think that goes against steam rules.

Honestly athropods I did try but looking at your GPU alone told me I was on a failed mission, the second hit in google was
Is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 Good for Anything??

And that's from 6 years ago, There's other drawbacks (memory, processor) and you really need to face it this is not a gaming system. I've no doubt some games will run (not many) but they will be the older games (+4 years at least) and anything graphic intensive will bomb out.

You could look at the original Doom Games (I & ][ not 3) though I'm not sure if they're available separately since the release of Doom3 BFG and the earlier Quake games and there will be a few others but take a close look at the system requirements before you dive in.

Not much is going to run on that. Torchlight 'kinda' does in netbook mode.

You can do things like Dungeons of Dreadmor tho

Agreed on all the statements of how this is a non-gaming pc. But I'm sure that there is this one game that was entertaining in the 2000s that you all like that I should be able to run at lowest settings. Online flash games will work too, it doesn't necessarily have to be steam, unless it goes against forum rules. Lulz

Cool Games that run.

Sorry to bump an old post but here it goes....

Hello, I use a netbook and mine runs flawlessly! Mine has Intel atom n450 1.66ghz (dual core) and 1.00gb of ram with Intel GMA 3150. I play minecraft (24 fps) Portal 1 (60 fps) Half life 2 (40-50 fps) and finnaly Portal 2 (6-10 fps with pixel shader).

Hope this helps!

-John Panos

Under 60 FPS is flawlessly? Debatable.
