Excellent Games For Non-Gaming and Slow Computers

Modern AAA projects require you to purchase a gaming console or even a more expensive gaming-ready computer. However, not all good games are so demanding as well as not all hyperrealistic titles are actually good. Hammergamer prepared a compilation of worthy titles than you can run on an old PC or even a slow netbook.

Modern AAA projects require you to purchase a gaming console or even a more expensive gaming-ready computer. However, not all good games are so demanding as well as not all hyperrealistic titles are actually good. Hammergamer prepared a compilation of worthy titles than you can run on an old PC or even a slow netbook.

Stardew Valley

This indie farming simulator with retro-style pixel-art visuals and top-down perspective runs perfectly on any PC with Windows 7 or later, 2GB RAM and just 256MB video memory. You can purchase a laptop with such specifications on eBay for less than $100 or use any of your home Windows, Linux, or Mac computers.

You play as an ordinary office worker who receives a sad notice about grandfather death. It says that you can inherit his old farm property in the faraway Stardew Valley. Before going there, you can choose one of five areas that matches your taste better. When you come to the place, it appears that the entire plot is a mess of stones and weeds. You have to clean it up to start planting, keeping animals, and building.

Products of your work are not only for boasting in front of neighbors. The more animals and crops you have, the bigger your farming business grows. You can go to the town to interact with NPCs to establish a partnership. It’s even possible to meet your love there and expand the house to raise children. You can continue playing forever as the game has no time limits. Quests, random encounters, and exploration are endless.

Happy Room

You can play this title nearly on any Mac OS, Windows, or Linux computer that can run flash games in the web browser. You can also install Happy Room if you have a 1GB video memory, and 4GB RAM. Nearly every mediocre laptop and desktop of the last four years is powerful enough to run it.

This game is a celebration of ultra-violence and gore. You play as a mad professor who is entrusted to conduct weapon tests on several poor guys. You have an unlimited number of tries to equip the testing chamber with explosives, guns, saws, spikes, and other deadly things.

When you feel ready to test a new combination, press play and watch how a ragdoll buddy suffers terrible tortures. You can activate slow motion and pause the action to catch the best moments. Every run brings you money for completing objectives, breaking high scores, and performing combos.

Hotline Miami

This gorgeous shooter recommended system requirements just 32MB video memory, 1GB RAM, and an old 1.4GHz CPU. To tell the truth, it runs perfectly even on slower devices! Hotline Miami presents a ‘90s Grand Theft Auto top-down perspective, litres of blood, retro wave neon style, and brilliant synthwave soundtrack.

The idea behind this challenging tactical shooter is quite simple. You have to listen a brief (or skip it to start faster), choose an animalistic mask to apply a buff that matches your style, and travel from stage to stage covering walls with blood. You can throw weapons, shoot, break necks with your arms, and cover up with alive buddies. Hotline Miami is a legendary game that became a classic top-down shooter soon after the release.

A couple of short sessions in Hotline Miami and Happy Room let you blow off steam and go to plant the crops and develop farming business in peaceful Stardew Valley. Remember that too long play is bad for your health. One hour of gaming a day is more than enough for full relaxation.
