I am not asking FULL BLAZING HD, but can it play like Sims 2/3, Mass Effect 1/2, Oblivion IV, Champions or games like so at minimum specs?

And is there anyway I can upgrade my laptop?

no real upgrade option as
1) its a laptop, only feasible to add memory
2) the gpu can't be changed out and its an IGP, so lost cause

You can play Sims 2 on med-low, Sims 3 & Mass Effect 1 on very Low, and not Mass Effect 2 or Oblivion, I think. Sorry, laptops aren't very upgradable. The Intel Integrated graphics just aren't very powerful (aside from new Sandy Bridges which are so-so).

Don't go buying games assuming you can play them though--I might be overestimating your graphics capabilities. Check the Game-o-meter: http://www.yougamers.com/gameometer/10259/
