Netbooks Play Games

Written by Felix Nova on Sun, Apr 11, 2010 4:05 PM

As we excitedly watch new games pushing the pictoral boundaries of our graphics cards and the jiggery-pokery physics bending our CPUs we are being left with an increasing stack of yester-year's games of brilliance clogging our shelves. Now lets say you have a holiday to some neighbouring territory over the summer period coming up and you simply hate being without a game to play.

If any of the above is happening to you then I suggest you take a little look at the array of Netbooks that are becoming available. Their CPUs are shaping up and some even support 2gigs of Ram and a semi ok graphics card. The bottom line is, these machines that were once designed for browsing the glorious internet can now also provide some satisfactory gaming performance when coupled with some older gaming gems.

On Game-Debate we tag all games with a as a symbol to indicate whether or not we feel it can be played using a netbook. If we have missed a game then log in and tell us or pop over to the forum thread and add games or links to sites that sell netbook games.

For some more thoughts on getting a new netbook for gaming take a look at this article by The Wizard of Westland
