Since you're refusing to post specs, I'll assume it's the shittiest laptop around with an Intel Atom or Celeron and integrated graphics. In this case, even games such as Stalker or New Vegas probably will not run well.

You can never go wrong with 16-bit and 8-bit emulation. Though with such low specs even these emulators must be chosen carefully - for Genesis for example you'll have to use Kega Fusion, and for SNES either ZSNES or some old version of Snes9x.

For PC games, since you like FPS, you might try No One Lives Forever 1 and 2, Outlaws, Blood 2 and the first AvP, these ought to run well. There's also a few freeware / old-school platformers / arcade-style games such as Castlevania: The Lecarde Chronicles 1 and 2, Double Dragon: Fists of Rage and Claw. However most of these games might require a lot of fiddling, tweaks, mods and community patches to run well on modern Windows / modern systems, you'll probably also have to use dgVoodoo 2, so if you're a computer illiterate brainlet it's better to stick with retro emulation.

These might not be as toaster-friendly depending on what kind of toaster we're talking about.

Recent 2D / pixel-art games such as Enter the Gungeon have much higher system requirements than most people imagine because most modern indie devs can't into optimization at all.

As for SimCity 4, I remember that over a decade ago it ran like shit on my Athlon XP 2.1 GHz + 6600GT, so I figure it's not as toaster-friendly as it might seem.

My friend and I have been having a blast playing Kohan 2. It's also a great game to play solo because the AI is one of the best in the genre and knows effective teamwork.

The general gameplay style of having squads led by heroes, plus map exploration where you go around killing neutral units for rewards and securing resources reminds me of HoMM 3. Capturing enemy settlements and being able to build the units of the settlement's race is also another mechanic found in both games. The deliberate reduction of micromanagement and active pause function also makes it suitable for people who generally prefer the slower pace of turn-based strategy.

I recommend all of these classics

Quake 3 Arena (FPS arena game, fast-paced)

Commandos (Real-time tactics game)

Heroes of Might & Magic 3 (Fantasy TBS with tactical combat)

Dungeon Keeper 1 (RTS… of sorts)

Lemmings (Puzzle platformer, quite fun)

Theme Hospital (Sim, comedic)

Sacrifice (RTS where you wage war as an extremely powerful wizard, has a highly branching campaign)

Thief series (start with Thief 1, obviously)

Warcraft 2 (RTS)

Duke Nukem 3D (FPS, more oldschool than Quake 3 Arena, but it's a classic)

X-COM: UFO Defense (Turn-based tactics)

Command & Conquer series

Worms: Armageddon (turn-based 2D platformer combat)

Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (Platformer, also the best game Cliff Bleszinski ever made, but you might need to fiddle with the GOG DOSBox config's CPU settings to fix the stutter)

Stargunner (Side-scrolling shooter)

>>15560052

KotOR 2 needs to be played with the Content Restoration Mod (https://deadlystream.com/files/file/578-tsl-restored-content-mod/) and Improved AI (https://deadlystream.com/files/file/833-improved-ai/). Otherwise everyone is fucking dumb as nails, companions and enemies included. We're talking using Power Attack 1 when they have Power Attack 3, which is the exact same penalty only Power Attack 3 does more damage. Retarded shit like that. Apparently the AI will never use upgraded feats or powers even though they have them. Hanharr will also use Wookie Rage and Bao-Dur will use his shield-breaker ability now.

Nigger I've been gaming on a laptop for over 4 years now – you can get a pretty powerful laptop rig nowadays for the same price as a desktop, if you're clever about it. Post specs in threads like this.

As for good toaster-friendly games, from the top of my head, try:

>Stronghold

>Mafia

>Gothic

>Sengoku Rance

>Thief

all top-tier games ANYONE should be able to run


000000  No.15564662

>>15564651

But if you're clever about it you can build an even better desktop for the same price. Laptops have small size and minimal airflow, which means you get better price-performance with a desktop computer which can afford bulkier parts and doesn't need underclocking to prevent overheating. If you overclock, it's definitely desktop master race.


e5d2b5  No.15564685

>>15564662

Of course it's always better to get a desktop if you can, but if you're on the move often, changing locations for days at a time, it's better to have a laptop you can bring with you than be without a PC for that period.

Overheating is not an issue as long as the laptop construction isn't retarded and you maintain it well (clean it out at LEAST once a year, prefferably also changing the thermal paste), but yeah, you probably won't be doing any overclocking.

Still, I bought this laptop for $900 ($800 with today's currency rates) four years ago, and can still run even the newest AAA trash on it as long as I set graphics to minimum. The flipside is, of course, that I'll probably need to buy a whole new computer in a year or two, as I can't swap parts like with a desktop, but $900 once in 5 years doesn't seem like that bad a deal to me.


000000  No.15564707

>>15564685

I built my gaming desktop PC for something like $600 5 years ago and it still runs the latest AAA trash at better than minimum and I can OC around 50% more performance out of both the CPU and the GPU. Of course that's not counting the price of a monitor because fuck you, I don't need to upgrade that.

OP, if you haven't yet done it, find yourself a torrent containing a compilation of no-intro ROMs for classic gaming systems. They're going to get harder to find as Nintendo keeps fucking everything up to sell a subscription service nobody asked for.

Then emulate fucking everything pre gen6 and enjoy good games. I'm currently playing Alien 3 on SNES and holy fucking shit is it good. I just finished Act Raiser and it was a blast too.

But seriously, get the ROMs now while you can. Higan is a great emulator that will run most things too.

There is a person who was struggling to run OpenRCT2, but could run the original game. Original RCT2 is written in assembly so has better performance. Although this was a couple years ago.

Actually you'd want ZSNES, which is optimized in assembly and will even run smoothly on a 486.

>>15572823

Well, 486 is exaggerating slightly, although you can in fact run older ZSNES versions on those. These days the minimum requirements are a 233 MHz CPU with 32 MB of RAM, with the heavy requirements being 500 Mhz CPU with 128 MB of RAM. Essentially, even your toaster has specs wildly beyond what ZSNES needs to operate smoothly.

>>15572835

Not a toaster-friendly game, I believe, even if tech has marched on. That game was pretty famous for its high hardware requirements back in the day. Don't post sarcastic or "ironic" recommendations. You aren't cool. You're just a faggot. Pretending to be a faggot is the same thing as actually being a faggot.

I was like you until I switched to keyboard only. G1 was designed to play with just a keyboard; all you're doing with a mouse is hampering yourself. The controls are similar in several ways to Dark Souls and that doesn't exactly play superbly with a mouse either.

Should a 3570k with 8 gigs of ddr3-1600 and a RX480 produce stuttering video output when recording gameplay? I've tried OBS, AMD Relive and yes even the microsoft game dvr shit and no luck.

With these specs you can run pretty much any game mentioned in this thread, fellow huemonkey. Probably even the more graphics demanding stuff such as Stalker SoC, New Vegas, UT2004 or Quake 4 on mid or low settings.

Your biggest problem is the ridiculous amount of ram, but even so I don't think there's any game mentioned in this thread with more than 1 GB as a minimum requirement.

4b82e6  No.15573643

>>15573130

Your primary bottleneck is the lack of RAM. Honestly these days you should have at least 8GB, 4GB as a bare minimum. You have 2GB on a Windows 7 installation, which means Windows 7 by itself is already eating up nearly all your RAM and for the rest of the memory it's using your hard drive as extra memory. Since your hard drive is well over 1,000 times slower than RAM when it comes to random read-write (which is what RAM is used for), you are fucking crippled. A quick lookup tells me you have 204pin DDR3 RAM and word has it your laptop's motherboard cannot handle over 8GB of RAM:

Here's a list of RAM that should run on your laptop: https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=Property&Subcategory=381&N=100007609%20600006178&IsNodeId=1&IsPowerSearch=1

2x4GB: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231342

Buying 2x4GB is probably the way to go. It's only $50 and should make it just usable enough that you could sell the damn laptop for $80 or more once you upgrade to something decent. Failing that, I would strongly consider switching over to a lightweight linux distribution, probably Artix Linux (https://artixlinux.org/), since it's lightweight, focused on being fast, and doesn't require you to compile shit (if you're wondering about systemd-free, systemd is a popular software suite that handles essential system functions, but it's bloated, unstable, and insecure - systemd-free handles those system functions more specific softwares, everything works either way). It's not the most noob-friendly thing, but it is a hell of a lot faster than Windows 7 will be and speed is a major factor in usability here.

Assuming you're sticking to Windows, it's also highly probable your PC has set up too little swap/pagefile space (the amount of hard drive space your PC has allocated to use extra memory), making shit run even slower than it needs to due to memory needs hitting a wall. I'd check this out and fix it. The quick guide is pressing StartKey+R, entering "SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe", you should be on the Advanced tab, click on Performance section's Settings, (you can fiddle with visual presentation settings to make Windows a bit faster here if you want), switch to Advanced tab of Performance Options, click on Virtual memory section's Change option, uncheck "automatically manage paging file size", click on your C: drive, select "Custom size", and I would set "Initial size" to 8192 and "Maximum size" to 16384 (or you could just set both to 16384, honestly - it's what I do). Click "Set" (not OK), then click OK, reboot, and you should be golden. If you didn't click Set, then the changes didn't take, so click the damn button, then you can click OK and exit the stuff. You will probably notice your PC runs better now. This obviously eats up extra disk space though, since that space is now reserved to do computer memory things.

Okay, I know you wanted gaming recommendations. You can emulate with ZSNES (http://www.zsnes.com/), but you'll also need SNES game ROMs to play games on it. ZSNES may be old, but it is damn lightweight and it will run on your specs. Just about every list in this thread should serve you. Aside from those lists Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (recommend playing Classic first - not Alien Crossfire - because it's better & installing kyrub's patch for classic, yitzi's patch for expansion, and PRACX to make the damn thing run properly on a decent resolution) is also a very fun science-fiction TBS which is an incredible time-waster that can make hours pass like minutes. Oh, and for another fantasy TBS recommendation I can throw in Eador: Genesis which is also quite fun. For RTS I'd also recommend Age of Empires 2 (but not the HD remaster, it is fucking shit, bloated, and buggy) or Age of Mythology (again, not the HD remaster, same story). Have fun.

Honestly I believe the overwhelming majority of games in this thread are playable on your toaster.

>>15573228

KotOR 2 is actually widely considered to be much better than KotOR 1, however it had a shitty and buggy launch. Anyway see: >>15560325 for my recommendations on running KotOR (or for my other game recommendations). Some /pol/ autist got tor banned for another 2 hours again so I'm multi-proxying.


9cf733  No.15573677

>>15573602

My bad, I made that assumption because of your graphics string, but apparently "Monitor PnP genérico" is written the same in Spanish and Portuguese.

As for Terraria, it lists 2.5 GB of ram as minimum requirements and recommends 4 GB, so you're already pushing it without mods. I had no idea because I never tried that game (don't care about it), but I'm surprised a pixelshit game has such high memory requirements.

One thing you should also pay attention to when picking games is that the graphics chip on the i5 460m only supports DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.0, and many contemporary low-spec retro-style games use DX11 / OGL 3.0 APIs even if they have NES or Atari graphics.


9cf733  No.15573692

>>15573643

With a i5 460m you don't have to put up with ZSNES, higan / bsnes is obviously a no-no but current Snes9x svn will probably run fine.


4b82e6  No.15573714

>>15573692

True, snes9x should run fine too. ZSNES is extreme lightweight edition for toasters. Either one works, but the former has better emulation iirc.


4abe51  No.15575628

>>15572823

Only on the toastiest of toasters. Otherwise I would never recommend it because it's bad.

>>15572858

Even the current version still supports pretty old systems, but no if you mean real toasters then you can go ZDoom or even older source ports.

Not necessarily true. If you really wanna make crazy shit with hundreds or thousands of trains running on a map at a given time, processor power actually does become a bottleneck to running it at full speed. God help you if you want to use a lot of boats.

Commander Keen (platformer) is still straight abandonware innit? Eh, you'll have to set up DOSBox at a good CPU rate to make it work, but that isn't hard. Fun game though.

If we're going over DOSBox games, I'll also recommend:

Prince of Persia 1 & 2 (Quality platformer)

One Must Fall 2097 (Fighting game)

Raptor: Call of the Shadows (side-scrolling shooter)

Golden Axe (Beat 'em up)

Speaking of old games, here are some more recommendations:

Hocus Pocus (Platformer)

Majesty 1 (RTS)

Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse (RPG)

Caesar 2 (City-building sim, ancient roman)

Day of the Tentacle (Adventure game, Yes, it's a Tim Schafer game, still worth playing)

Grim Fandango (Adventure game, also Tim Schafer)

I know a lot of people have already said things along these lines but you can play pretty much anything made until 2005 with no worries

I have a vista laptop with only 1GB of ram and it does this.

If you're having trouble you can optimize your PC's performance by getting rid of useless background processes like Antivirus

also if anyone has any suggestions for PC games with really low filesize requirements (ideally stuff like Cavestory but it can be up to 50 mb I guess) I'd appreciate them


79afad  No.15590139

>>15588457

Also, when trying to get more out of an old laptop, consider switching the OS or setting up a dual boot with some lightweight Linux distro, like Mint XFCE. Of course then you run into the problem of finding compatible games, but Wine can do quite a bit and with a little searching you can also usually download or buy Linux versions somewhere. There are a number of games that were unplayable through Windows, because of all the bullshit background bloatware built into the OS, that ran just fine on Linux either straight away or after fucking around with them for a bit.

.kkrieger. It's a 3D first-person shooter in only 96kb. System requirements might be too high for a total toaster though. http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=12036
