Very modest laptop

#1 Posted by Trylks (825 posts) -

If I have a laptop with an integrated graphic card that does not support opengl hardware acceleration. Can I play anything besides flash games?

Any flash game you would recommend?

Thank you.

well, go to www.kongregate.comloads of cool flash games in there.

also you can probably play most of the low end indie 2d games out there, ever played cave story? it's awesome, there's the Nifflas gameswhich are pretty much all great and pretty low end on the graphics department as well, there are a ton of games that you can play.

You should be able to, OpenGL is probably not an issue for you but you need to be more specific. What's the make and model of the laptop, and which O/S are you running on it?

Following up on what Jeust and onarum said, there's also:

  • Ben There, Dan That!
  • Time Gentleman, Please!
  • Cthulu Saves The World
  • Breath of Death VII
  • Samorost 2
  • Machinarium
  • Fortix 2
  • Mr Robot

Depending upon what modest means, you might get away with a game like Braid which isn't that demanding really.

The first Torchlight is extremely easy on the machines. II's probably not that bad too.

Nah, Braid is pretty demanding, I couldn't run it on my old laptop which had a NVIDIA card, well I could run it, at like 10 FPS but I could ;p

All the other games you suggested should be fine though.

Lots of the GOG catalog should run fine, too.

A yes, don't know how I didn't mention that, you could play like 80% of GOG's catalog with no problems.

Mobile Intel 945GM Express Chipset family. I use windows xp and linux debian stable, dual boot.

I don't think anything as fancy as torchlight will work on my computer, but there are quite a lot recommendations there, so I'll explore them in the following weeks. Some of them should work and look quite fun.

Thank you all for your answers, they are very appreciated.
