Hey guys, I'm just wondering about good games for the slow PC that I'm on now...

Specs:
533 MHZ Pentium 3
256mb Ram
Intergrated Intel Graphics - Intel 82810E 32MB card

Oh yeah, don'e mention any Half-Life engine games, I know they work on this but besides ESF they all seem outdated and dull to me. And BTW Esf dosen't get over 5 fps on this rig, so I hang at this forums for the community not the game...

Also don't mention Starcraft or Diablo 2, I know they work on this also but I think they both suck.

starcraft doesnt suck.

if you cant play esf past 5 fps i'm assuming your computer just blows...

www.gamespot.com look for pc games, they have a cool feature where you can it automaticly checks to see if your computer can run the game.

total annihilation is a good old school game.

You're probably going to want to look for good freeware games on the Internet, as a machine with those specs won't be playing any retail games unless they're a bit aged.

Liquid War is a fun freeware game written in C++ w/ Allegro, and it should run well on an old machine.

You could also try playing MapleStory if you like MMORPGs. You'd have to play with the graphics settings down, but I sometimes play on a machine with lower specs than yours, so you can manage.

There's lots of other fun, non-resource-intensive freeware games here.

Aged, but not inferior.

Yes, Duke Nukem 3D is great in a pinch. Also, check out SimCity 2000, Warcraft 2, Lords of the Realm 2, Tie Fighter, or The Dig. Then there's Civilization II, it's like IV, but with less Spock. Oh, and there's also Master of Orion 2, a kick ass space strategy game.

...maybe I should have simply opted for a list.
