Forums - PC Discussion - What can I run on these specs?

I bought my laptop in 2015 for the sole purpose of work and websurfing, (which it's been perfect for) and as such its specs weren't top of the line even then, and I've never used it for gaming.

Being not very knowledgeable in this regard, I was wondering what games it could run, with the following specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 5200U @ 2.2GHz

GPU: Nvidia Geforce 820M

RAM: 8GB

(And yes, I know it's basically a potato, haha)

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Skyrim, maybe with a grass mod set to two feet.

Nah, I'm joking, Fucked if I know but I'm sure you'd get something new enough on there, two point hospital for one or that socialism laced RPG from last year. Both are good.

Yeah, looks pretty much the same as my Laptop from 2011, you could run Ori and the blind Forest, mildly modded Skyrim and have very little issues with 4x and strategy games before 2015/16.

You could probably run 99% of the games on gog.com



2d indies and hentai games. Some 3d games and emulators as well probably.

Mine is from 2016 but you literally have the same specs that I do.
Ehh I dont do PC gaming, so I wouldnt be a good reference, but you can run Diablo 2/3 and WOW for whatever its worth.



Ouch, that GPU is entry level. Perhaps you can play classic PC games or 2D pixelated indies from or on gog.com what The_Liquid_Laser and pervy Yuri senpai said.

I thought hentai games had sophisticated 3D graphics like in the ads, lol



Indie games.
