Games That I Play On My Laptop

So I've got a decent gaming PC, but sometimes I just feel like laying back on my bed and playing something on my laptop. Problem is, it's getting a bit old. It's still pretty nice and pretty quick at regular ol' computer things like the internet and movies and stuff, but it's even further behind for games than it was then. Still, there are some pretty satisfying games that I have played on it, and I thought it would be nice to put the list here. All of these are games that I have managed to run at around 30 frames per second or more. Sometimes that means lowering the settings all the way down. I am not concerned about looks, just performance.

Anyway, here are my specs:

  • Intel HD Graphics
  • i3 M350 2.27GHz
  • 4GB RAM

Also note that there is a vast treasure trove of games available through emulation, provided those games haven't been made available in a modern form. I will not, however, be listing games that I suggest you emulate. I'll also try not to list old-school games unless I find them especially noteworthy or engaging. GOG.com is a great place to go looking for good laptop games if you don't find anything to your fancy here.

This is a good list. Much better than mine.

Also, how do you play in bed? Do you use a tray table or something? I find it pretty impossible to do without a surface to mouse on.

Yours has a slightly better onboard chip than mine.

When you have a computer desk, you usually have a little tray for the keyboard that slides out from under it. Well, I took one of those from an old desk and it has just enough room to put my laptop on the left and my mouse on the right. I stack up pillows against the wall behind me, lean against them and play. It's also possible to get a mousepad and a big, hard book, and put the laptop in your lap and use the book for the mouse.
