For my birthday last year I received a netbook, specifically an emachine em250 series with a 1.6 Ghz processor and 1 G of RAM. I then started trying various games on my netbook and have run into the same problem as many netbook users, many games do not work due to either strange native resolutions, or the minimal system specs. Now I know that many of you system snobs out there are laughing at my attempt to game on a netbook, but like many people I can't afford a high end system and want to know what will work with what I've got. So, the purpose of this blog is to compile a list of games, primarily mmorpg's, that will work on a netbook. I have devised 3 categories: 1. Works no issues, 2. Works with some issues, 3. Does not work. I will try to review as many games as possible to help compile a good list, and if any of you out there have suggestions on games to try please comment or message me.

  1. I really dig the premise, and I'm gonna totally link here everywhere that I can. I am looking into purchasing a netbook in the semi-near future myself, so I'm gonna want to know what games are gonna work better than others and whatnot.

    Thanks for bringing your perspective!

  2. Here are a few games that I personally am curious about regarding netbooks, so perhaps you could check these out and let us know.

    Starcraft 2 - One game that, if I buy a portable computer, I'm gonna HAVE to be able to play.

    World of Warcraft - I know, I know, pelt me with rocks and whatnot, but in my defense I run a private server.

    Nexon - Nexon's suite of games seem to generally be tailored for low-end systems, so I would expect these to run pretty well (plus I think they're all free).

    Just a few off the top of my head :)

  3. I am looking into a way to try Starcraft 2, but I'm not finding a way without buying the game.
    WoW is kind of the beast I've been avoiding, as I have other friends with netbooks who say after the last patch it will not run. However I am trying it, and I am also trying Mabinogi which is a Nexon game. Thanks for the suggestions!!
