Can I play Skyrim or any Elder Scrolls game on my laptop?

Hello.

My friend told me that due to me having HP 4000 Gfx, I would be able to play skyrim. Is this true? Am I able to play it? And if so, how about any other Elder Scrolls games?

Hi there Pivot, not sure about being able to play skyrim on a Laptop, but i could be wrong

However i would start at a website called Can You Run It.

That should give you a rough guide as to how well if your laptop will do while running the game

Hope it helps

Elder Scrolls 3 & 4 are much older and will more likely play on a laptop. Oblivion was released in '07 and Morrowind was released back in '01 or '02 or so and require a lot less recources. Morrowind more so than the other two.

What about Skyrim or Skyrim Dawnguard? And the CYRI site said no, but 2 of my friends said I can.

It might run but will lag a lot and be almost unplayable because of integrated intel graphics.

IT "might" run Skyrim, but is not supported by Bethesda in sys req's, so yes it might RUN but will be an uneven/ dodgy experience, and make it unplayable. there is a difference between running a prog and it being playable (if that makes sense)

As the others have said the older titles are a maybe, Skyrim is a big no unless you consider an average of 19 FPS playable,
