I have a crapy old pc at my folks. Was wondering if you guys had some recommendations no games that are not to taxing.
I run torchlight ok on low settings.
Good low spec games on Steam
How about GTA2? I'm not sure you can find it in the steam store by itself, but I have seen it on there whenever there is a sale on all R* games in one package with it's original price listed as free. If it isn't on steam as an individual game then it is available for free on the Rockstar Games website.
" It's not steam, but if you're looking for games that will run on a toaster and don't care about their age, Good Old Games is a great(and cheap!) resource.+20 to your coolness factor for suggesting GOG. Its a superb service, and the games just work.
Plants vs Zombies
Any of the LucasArts adventure games (Indy & the Fate of Atlantis & Loom are both particularly great, IMO)
Torchlight (which sucked me back in just last night. Fairly low-spec and even has a "netbook mode")
And not Steam, but I have a hard time not recommending Blizzard's back catalog, since they hold up so well and were low-spec even at release :
Any of the six of those should keep you busy for quite some time. :)
Buy Total Annihilation off GOG. Until they or Steam release any of the KKND or Dark Reign games, you won't be needing anything else for a while.
Though you probably couldn't go wrong with one of the Sierra adventure packs, like Space Quest Collection or King's Quest Collection off either Steam or GOG.
