Six Titles That'll Work on Nearly Any Machine

"It's inevitable. You have to visit the parents or grandparents, or if you're an orphan - somebody. This generic familial being generally has a crap computer. But all is not lost. Thanks to sites like,, and various other digital distribution outlets, you can still find things that'll run on nearly any machine. While this list may not be available at some of the usual suspects, most can be found on the web - or better yet, you should already own them. Honestly, they're all must-play titles, even if they're fairly obvious. Really, if you're anything like me, you always make sure you have a gaming vacation during a real vacation. That is, unless you're at a beach. Anyway, here are the title I took on my most recent vacation, and I'd recommend them to you without hesistation."

There was no mention of Baldur's Gate 2 or Icewind Dale? How about Red Alert 2 or StarCraft?

Damn I forgot about Baldur's Gate 2, I loved that game.

I'm off to install it now :)

very good list ! I agree with people above, BG2 should be there too. BG2 and Deus Ex are my favourites games all time, all platmorms

It's a great list and I'm glad to own 5/6 of those (Planscape torment is 4 CDs... massive at the time)

Remember, these are games that will run on any computer out there. Also remember it's the writers list, not a difinitive list.

I loved Planescape: Torment, really one of my favorite games ever. I am off to try and find my copy, that I am sure I packed away.

About 2 weeks ago, out of my disappointment of fallout 3, I decided to play Fallout 2 again. Fallout 2, best game period.

Baldur's Gate II is my favorite game ever by a large margin.

Playing Fallout 2 right now and Fallout 3 is the furthest thing from my mind... they really don't make em like they use-to.
