Playing casual, light-weight or old games on integrated graphics?

Recommended Posts

I play Age of Empires 2 HD with one of my friends and he told me that he plays his games on an inexpensive desktop without a graphics card. I have another friend who tells me she plays Sims 3 on a $400 laptop. It got me wondering about what games can be enjoyed on cheaper computers without discrete graphics cards. Personally, I have played some casual, light weight games, such as Plants vs Zombies and Tetris on old laptops back in 2007-2011. I have also played NES, SNES, and N64 emulators on cheap laptops without a GPU. Is there a hierarchy for integrated graphics? Are some integrated graphics more powerful than others? Can some integrated graphics handle light weight games better than others? Here's a list of some games I'm wondering about playing on cheaper computers without a GPU.

Gemcraft 2 Chasing Shadows
Dungeon Warfare
Metal Slug 3
Metal Slug X
Cat Quest
Papers, Please
Stanley Parable
Doki Doki Literature Club
Plants vs. Zombies
NES, SNES, N64 emulators
Arcade classics: Dig Dug, Pac-Man, Galaga, Tetris

hi, of course some integrated graphics cards are better than others. There are several ranking sites.
e.g. https://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html

with these pages you can check whether they would run on the notebook.

      Hi Guys
      I have question about graphic tools in games.. So I have processor which at 100% load graphics card running at 40-50% of a sudden.... I know, however, that the graphic settings, which are based only on the CPU .. Can anyone give me, which ones? Then I could achieve better visual experience without changing the hardware;)
