Thanks mopar man for the nice suggestions. List updated.
Dungeon siege 1-2
How about The Bitmap Brother's Speedball 2? I used to play that until I fell off the chair....
Roll on the release of Speedball 2 Tournament!!
The original MYST and Test Drive 6.
Also, Oblivion ran ok with OLDBLIVION on my computer. It has an average of 15fps. When there are more than 3 people it hits 5 and stays their. Outside it stays 20.
I used to play Frontier: Elite 2 for ages and this looks very much in that genre. I'll have to give it a go sometime. I'll second this request.
Another hundred games
I like bug on a wire
Flash games can run on just about any computer with low low specs
Thanks everyone. List has been updated.
@mopar man, Oblivion is out of the question then.
Hell good list, this thread should be sitcky!
Thanks jtickner1, I kept forgetting to add that to the list.
I don't really understand this list. Do you mean games that onboard graphics cards can run, or just 8600GT and below? Because games like F.E.A.R. still struggle with my old 7300GS
Do you have the settings maxed out or something?
I could get F.E.A.R. running steady set at about med on my old comp and it had;
ATI X200 (integrated)
and some P4 2.8Ghz i think
What are you other specs?
Athlon X2 4400+
ah... well you should be running it fine
Read it more carefully. Also read about the specs I have stated that the games will run on. FEAR has an option in the Graphics settings where you can force DX8 shaders. Also, you can turn Pixel Doubling on. This drastically increases performance on weaker cards like yours.
Nox, War Wind, War Wind 2, Carnivores 1,2, and Cityscope.
Cityscope is a Carnivores game, by the way...
They all are pretty old and run GREAT, just maybe a very easy compatability mode with nox. Must be set to compatibility mode.
Thanks mopar man. I just updated the list.
Open TTD (That's Transport Tycoon Deluxe) I can run it on my dad gum washing machine it's that simple.
edit by LNCPapa - Remember that we have young people surfing these forums also
Rise of nations, Medal of honor, Grand theft auto all parts of the series. you can always download emulators to play games from n64, ps1-2, dreamcast, and other consoles on the pc. Most of the old classics like 007 goldeneye, zelda, and super smash brothers. you can download the actual roms at dgemu.com for free but you get a certain amount of points by responding in their forum. The more points you get more the games you can download.
GTA for PS one is my fav throw back
F.E.A.R. has a lot of tweaking options, so there should be some way to make it run well on many computers.
And I'd say Star Wars Republic Commando.
No small makers?
You don't have any games from small shareware game makers. One of my particular favorites is Spiderweb Software. Amost all of these games can be run on an extremely basic system. The games these peple offer are Geneforges 1-4, Avernum 1-5, Nethergate: Ressurection, and lots of older games. There is also plenty of other small-tme game makers out there, besides the one I named...
Geneforge and Avernum are already there. If you have any other additions, let me know and I'll add them there.
And thanks for that one snacks, I'd forgotten about it.
As I have mentioned before, Rage3k, very cool list .

Thanks Mr. Julio. I really appreciate it.
On a side note, I can't seem to join Digg. Does anyone know why?
