    How to play games with 4GB RAM:
    Step 1: Choose a game that interests you.
    Step 2: Google 'xX*Insert Chosen Game name Here*Xx PC requirements'
    Step 3: If requirements meet 4GB or less ram you might be able to play it (other components matter too ya'know)
    Step 4: Buy or Pirate said game.
    Step 5: Play Game.

    There should be a GBAtemp prerequisite course 'how to use google' that should be completed before registering as a new member.

    Thats not always the case as even doom can run pretty good on 4GB of ram (min specs call for 8GB)

    I've heard Minesweeper runs well on 4GB, it's free too!

    -go to gog.com and browse
    -grab a bundle from humblebundle.com
    -google 'indie games'
    -google 'pc games before 2010'

    ...and I have to amend on that last one, as I think quite a lot of games that are released these days run reasonable at 4GB RAM (of course the graphic card and CPU are pretty important as well).

    The amount of RAM you have does not affect how well 90% of all games run, since 90% of all games use 2GB max (usually much less).

    What matters more is what CPU and graphics card you have.

    Also, what kind of games would you like to play? FPS? RTS? Platformers? Puzzle games? Point and click adventures? Side scrollers? RPG? Tactics? Dungeon crawlers? Survival? Multiplayer? Online? Etc... There are millions and millions of games out there to choose from.
