Laptop games?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Just wanting to know if there's anything anyone here is playing on their lap top? I know the two are sort of oxymorons, :P
Are there any that dont put too much one the system but perhaps have other redeeming qualities, like strategye or good writing?

 

Thanks!

:)

  • 2012 I think, I picked it up reconditioned recently for less than $200usd from an "eBay Shop" that specializes in reconditioning ex business models. These are the reviews that I checked out first for the model I bought;

Obviously you won't get alienware type graphics, but they are certainly good enough for all but the most "discerning" gamers I think.

Yes Dell Latitudes are good machines. You just need to make sure what the integrated graphics are capable of. I have 2 Dells, the one I just told you about and an older Latitude D610, http://www.notebookreview.com/notebookreview/dell-latitude-d610-review-pics-specs/ running on WinXP. Love that machine even if it does weigh a ton. Plays a lot of older games better than far newer machines and I prefer playing Sacred Underworld on that one.

I don't know how Podgie stands the pace!

My laptop is an ASUS. I play anything on it that I can play on the PC; Oblivion; Morrowind, Lotro, Sacred 1 & 2, Neverwinter, Baldurs Gate; a lot of the oldies from GOG. No problems. I tend to play the games in their old original forms, as I find that all the follow-up versions concentrate on more detailed graphics at the expense of game plot and quests - Settlers 1 & 2, but nothing later, the original Colonization not the more recent disastrous version (only game wife will play, and preferably on the Amiga, which gave up when I tried to install a modern replacement mouse, WoW in the old version on Excalibur, and the rest. I was very very annoyed when WoW improved communications (update 7?) and robbed me of the pleasure of setting up links by running the gauntlet between major centres. Not everyone's choice of games but I enjoy them

So while I can easily run Lotro on the laptop I can also run games back to SM98 - usually in GOG versions but often from the orignal disks.

No laptop problems
