    I have a laptop that has some OK specs. I need some games that don't need next gen graphics cards / processors. I have Minecraft, and State of Decay (Which SoD runs pretty well). But I need new choices.

    I'm Open to anything at this point. Much help is appreciated.

    The Source engine games should run ok on the lowest settings I think, so Left4Dead, Half Life 2, Counter Strike: Source, Portal, etc are open to you.

    Also, try testing some games at http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri

    Indie games should work ok on your hardware as well.

    Ha you got the same laptop as me, same specs and all. I managed to get BioShock infinite running on it on medium graphics. Pirate copy of course lack of spec check

    Having decent AMD GPU instead of Intel one helps already. I would say almost any indie game should work with that and then games using source engine.
    There's spec check? Even after furious googling I can't find anything. It's also steamworks title so no DRM issues with the game either.
    I don't think that many games even have those and if they do they usually just warn you about it, Beyond Good & Evil gives popup that drivers aren't up to date but lets you play. With COD: Ghosts it was lie and they shoved it down with warning which didn't let you to game without modified exe. Only other game that forces it was Prototype which doesn't let me even select correct resolution as it thinks my specs are too low when in fact they are so high check isn't able to detect it.
    TL;DR: PC games shouldn't have forced spec check ever and if they do they are doing it wrong.

    Bioshock Infinite was pretty decent single player experience so I certainly did support them on that one, one of only games that I actually preordered as there was deal of 25% discount, other preorder extras and 3 other games including XCOM. Burial at sea was surprisingly cheap with season pass.

    Oh yeah I later purchased it on my ps3 with the season pass but the first play through was on my laptop.
    What I meant by spec check is some games refused to load BioShock included but the hack exe file gets round that

    San andreas is a fun game that requires no specs at all :)
