Ten great PC games that your computer will run

Sam Naylor writes: A popular criticism of gaming on the PC is the cost of upgrading your machine to meet the specifications for all the latest games. What people who say this tend to forget, though, is there are plenty of games you can play on your PC without needing a hulking beast of a computer to run.

The article even includes system requirements!

Disagrees for that? I guess people think your computer is way better than you make it out to be.

Actually, my PC can't run Fallout. The game's too dated or I dunno... Same for Grim Fandango

Maybe it doesn't work with Vista. It's such a shame.

But I've heard there's something called DOSbox that can run these games on newer computers

It's a nice little virtual machine that will let you play your favorite DOS games.

And there are many freeware/shareware DOS games out there that you can download from the web.

For example give Tyrian 2000 a try (it has been re-released as freeware). It's one of the best shooters of all time.

Also try scummvm program for graphic adventure games of old, like the lucas arts games like Grim Fandango.

sukru3270d ago

You cannot use SCUMMVM for Grim Fandango. The game uses a completely different (i.e.: 3D) engine. Same for the escape from the monkey island.


Btw, both Grim Fandango, and SCUMMVM are good thing. Just they don't work together.

Plants vs. Zombies, Braid and World Of Goo.
