Any recommondations for games on a laptop?
I have a laptop which runs games like Gmod quite well, so just looking for any suggestions for any games that would run well on my laptop (Preferably Free). Thanks!

It really depends on the spcs of your laptop.. you can have a really strong laptop or a less strong one..
I have a laptop that can run every game with np, and even on high.. so i think you better post your spcs

Sorry guys, I'm a limited user so I'm trying to find a post that's the most similar to my question :P Any chance you guys could help me out with this question or point me to the right forum?

If I can run Sims 3 well despite not meeting min. requirements, do you think I could run Fallout3? I'm using a bad laptop for gaming at the moment, and I really want to play Fallout 3, but I'm not sure if I can even run it on lowest settings. Can anyone tell me whether or not I should try it? I'd like a second opinion on whether or not to buy it because money is tight and I don't want to waste it on a game I can't play.

PS: I'm very uninformed when it comes to PCs and hardware.

Impossible to say without your system specs - how long's a piece of string?

If you don't know how to find your specs, get back to us.

Sims is more about hard drive space. Fallout 3 is more based on your graphics card capabilities. Do you know what card is in your laptop?

What are your specs? you can try using sites like canIrunIt.com or notebookcheck.net. (can I run it is a little overkill from my experience as it says that i can't run some games that i have no problem with.

Note that sites like those are often missing a lot of less-famous and indie games.

That said, indie games tend to require lower specs, as well. (Not always, though.)

Figure out what sort of graphics card you have. If you have an integrated graphics card, you probably can't run anything that has a graphics card with a name. Like, if a game talks about requiring an Nvidia [model number] card. However, you can find out for sure by checking a place ilke videocardbenchmark.net . Sometimes, though, you'll find they're naming really old or low-end cards, which might turn out to be even lower than what you have.

For example, here's the page for the Intel Integrated HD Graphics 4000: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Intel+HD+4000

As for a good recommendation for a 3D game that you can run, and play for free, go for Team Fortress 2 -- unless you have a strange setup, you should probably be able to run it at least half-decently.

Checking release dates can also help. In general, even if a game is 3D, if it was released a few years ago, you might be able to run it. You can also generally get a guess based on whether a game is 3D and how "pretty" the game looks -- though this isn't always the case, since there are some games that are poorly coded/optimized, such as Hydrophobia: Prophecy and Sunrider: First Arrival, whose spec requirements seem to be far higher than what you'd expect based on how they look.

Ok ran you graphics card specs. It shouldn't be a problem for running Fallout 3. Thing is though you need 7 GB hard drive space for it. Is 5.6 you max or just what you have empty currently?
