    I know exactly how fast your PC is.

    Play Quake 3 Arena.

    Is this the same laptop that can't even run mercs?
    Cause seriously, I doubt there are many games you can play. I can only think of RCT 1 and 2, maybe the sims, but if your into some online games, your comp will probably be good enough to run gunz, maplestory, and gunbound.

    [​IMG] That was funny jgu. And so true.

    With only 32mb video memory, your selection is pretty low. A few free online games might be a good choice.

    If nobody's mentioned it yet, Rollercoaster Tycoon.

    *Edit

    Seems that it was mentioned, well I second it, and I second Diablo 2 aswell.

    Motocross Madness 2 is *AMAZING* (and not just for the moto whores) and runs on crappy PCs.
    It's an awesome game but can't be found easily... on the internet.
    I did purchase the original back in the day, because it was so worth it.
