Hi everyone,

Right no I have a really bad desktop, I will be getting a new one in about a month, but for now I am stuck with this one.


Specs:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 2.8 GHz

3GB RAM

nVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430


I would like to know if anyone knows of some old, low spec, preferably free single-player RPGs. Something along the lines of the TES games, where it's first person. (I don't like top down). Also it has to be 3D

thanks

One that I have recently gotten into is an indie game called "Unreal World". It is more of an old school survival rpg set in finlad during the late iron age. It is really cool and only 3 bucks. I bought it when I heard it has been in developmnent for over 20 years.

It may be a top down view but worth checking out since it is free. Battle for Wesnoth, 1GHz CPU, 515MB RAM, and did not say anything about needing more then integrated graphics. It is also a free open source game that is cross platform with Linux and comes in a portable edition from PortableApps.com

Some of the best RPGs out there are older. Any of the older Ultima games along with classics like Planescape and the first Fallout titles should do you fine. Forunatly they are good enough to play on weak systems with low settings and still enjoy them. A game like KOTOR just doesn't work with all the bells and whistles turned off.

edit: I just noticed you said "free" and that you don't like top down. Kindly disregard my entire post! :D

The Elder Scrolls: morrowind is very low demand, and one of my best games, Diablo II is pretty good, Dungeon Siege II is pretty good too...

you can get good deals on these games in thrift stores (my buddy got dungeon siege for a quarter)

Yeah, Morrowind is a great game. Combat is lacking, but storyline pretty much overshadows that flaw. But... it's not a free game...

Hey dude! Try gog.com, see, there are many old games for really cheap :)  I bought myself some games there.. I've got a shitty graph-card, but see what i can run for singleplayer games:

Morrowind
Flatout 2
Call of Duty 2 (Great Game! (very cheap))
The Penumbra Series (if you like horror)
Minecraft
GUN (western FreeRoam shooter with many missions, only the final boss is hard to beat! :3)
Rainbow Six RavenShield
Lock-On
YHTFTE (Dont ask it, just google it.. -.-)
Half Life 2 (Cheap on Steam)
DOOM 3 (Awesome game, you have to love it :) )
SuperMeatBoy

Thats not all, there's many more, but you have 2 google it yourself.. But really, try GoG.com, very good site for good old singleplayer games ;)

Here are some to think about:

TES Daggerfall(Its free and it runs in DOS-Box, so you should have no trouble running that.)
Call of duty 4(On low, But still very nice)
LOMAC(Lock-on Modern air combat, Very good flight sim. Although I recommend running on low)
YS-Flight(Worst graphics possibly ever for a flight sim, But I am personally addicted to this xD)

There are quite a few, Check out GOG.com for some free indie games. Also many other useful references on the internets :p 

Happy gaming! xD
