It came as a gift from my Wife's mother. At first, it was a Gateway. My wife said, "too big" and having no say in the matter, a Toshiba Satellite then came to be known in the house.
I laughed at its specs, little loser. 4500MHD integrated graphics...please. I have no need for such a puny machine. I can't play video games on it, not good ones.
Well, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. My aging PC spoke to me. "I only have an 80 gb hard drive. What games do I currently have installed?" Well, Dragon Age: Origins, The Witcher, Deus Ex, Morrowind and Team Fortress 2 on Steam. Wait, oh I get it, I have a back catalog of video games for the PC that I don't have room for. The laptop has a 500 gb hard drive... curious.
I then tried Pirates! Live the Life on my wife's laptop, we share, so I can use it too. Nothing special to note other than it works.
I then installed Max Payne 2. The first thing I noticed is that it supported the laptop's native resolution, 1366 by 768. That's cool. I cranked the graphics up, I crank them up and then work my way down, and it worked like a charm. I had never finished Max Payne 2, so my mind about this piece of hardware is changing.
I now think about other old games I have that could use some new love.
Games I own that should run on my Wife's laptop.
I might try a few more, but this is a pretty good list and that's not counting Max Payne 2.
|1. Grim Fandango|
How about that.
|2. Deus Ex|
Why not? The laptop has 500gb of memory.
|3. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind|
|4. The Longest Journey|
|5. No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way|
Haven't seen you in a while.
|6. Sid Meier's SimGolf|
Where's my sequel?
|7. Beyond Good & Evil|
A good one.
|8. Medieval: Total War|
A pretty old game, should play on the laptop.
|9. NASCAR Racing 2002 Season|
Not as good as 2003, but cool none the less.
|10. MVP Baseball 2005|
One of the best ever.
|11. Madden NFL 2005|
I haven't played a Madden game in a while. Roster sucks, but who cares. Maybe there's a mod.
All is forgiven little laptop, all is forgiven. Game on.
Thanks for reading.
