Specs:
2.8GHz Pentium 4
512MB RAM
120GB Hard Drive
nVidia GeForce FX 5200XT 3d AGP Graphics.

See? Low end....
Basically, please suggest me the best game you can think of, BUT:
The smaller size the game (I'm got 80GB of space, but I want to use as little as possible), and the less resources required, the better!
I'm sick of running good games on **** specs, I just want a great game.

Please help guys!
I'm a total game virgin, bar Far Cry. 0.0

You can run most games if you put em on low quality. I have the exact same setup (except the hard drive). If you're looking for good fun in sessions of maybe 20 mins to an hour before it gets repetitive try Counter Strike. Any one of them will do though all the leet people moved to source it seems =[.

ummm Serious Sam, it didn't take much to run it even when it first came out, it's story-less FPS just shooting and shooting...

depends what kind of game your looking for I can think of about of dozen older games that are still decent to play these days.

dude...get Morrowind, as long as your into that style, that game will keep you hooked for months or longer. I still play mine and ive already beat it. Its got like 100 hours just in story, and not counting the billions of stuff you can do on the side. Morrowind is probably the best game ever to hit PC. And those that say Oblivion is better, well, its only better in Graphics, gameplay and story wise, not so much

These are all good choices. However, Starcraft and Warcraft will have a large amount of online players, so I'd recommend one of them first (Starcraft, because I dislike the endless Dota playing in WC).

Thanks guys.
I forgot to mention, the game is (not ) going to be (il)legally (downloaded)purchased.

So that rules out Counter-Strike, doesn't it?

Serious Sam is great, non-stop, frenzied action.

Master Of Orion 2... if you like turn based strategy..
and I forgot about the Jedi Knight series, get Jedi Outcast, i played through that game like 8 times.

Those specs aren't that bad. I mean sure its not a gaming machine but the processor is at least decent. Up the RAM and Video card and you're set for some sweet games.

Battlefield 1942 would be great. It's like 4 years old or so, but still has a huge online base and modding community.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Thanks a lot guys.
I'm currently in the process of (downloading) buying SWAT 4, (il)legally of course.

Keep the suggestions up though!

If your into FPS:
http://www.americasarmy.com
Quite a realistic shooting game
Search google for "version 2.6 special forces" because you couldn't run the newest version smoothly.

Fun game you can run no matter how crap your computer is

http://www.runescape.com
If you've never played this game before, enjoy months or even years of wasted life.


I wasted so much of my life on Runescape as a child... I was late getting back to school at lunch each and every day... But hell, what did I care, I could smith mithril. Yeah, I pwned =).

hahaha, yeah, as lame as Runescape is, it is really fun if you haven't played it hours on end before.

Ummmm... OH! okay, here's some good games and ratings I'd give them:

Heretic 8/10
Outwars 8.5/10
The Ship 9.8/10
Guild Wars 9.9/10 (because of how addicted I was to it)

If you can find it, Total Annihilation.

Why the hell has nobody mentioned Quake 3?
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Hasn't even been said yet, I'm amazed:

Halo 1 for PC!
It's like 20 bucks nowadays, and tons of people still play online, and its one of the most fun FPSs i've ever played.

I thought by low-end you meant Pong low-end.

There's a whole world of incredible games that don't require a gigabyte video card.

Try:
Baldur's Gate series
Age of Empires series
Time Commando
Jedi Knight
