I've been inspired by Telltale's Reality 2.0. Let's make a list of great games that will run on not-so-great hardware.
1. Sam and Max Season 1 (all five episodes release so far run great)
2. Monkey Island (All 4 titles)
3. Grim Fandango
4. Full Throttle
5. Sam and Max Hit the Road
6. King's Quest Collection
7. Day of the Tentacle
8. Manic Mansion
9. The Longest Journey
10. Beneath a Steel Sky
My laptop -while solid and very well made- is not designed for gaming. 1.86 Intel celeron core duo, 1.5 GB RAM, 60 GB Hard drive. Not even an integrated graphics card to speak of. Yikes! Would you believe it ran all those games? I even plan on installing more.
