What Games Will Run?

Hello guys after some very helpful and quick responses! Thanks everyone. I'm now going to return the 2 games that cant run! ERgHHHH

But. Does anybody have any idea of games that will run, or a program which will tell me! Preferably a multi-player game?

I have windows 7. An i3 processor And sadly a rubbish Intel (R) HD Graphics.

Thank-you to anyone that can help.

Can You Run It - if a game you are interested in is listed in the drop down menu, it will tell you if your system can run that game.

Nah, I don't like System Requirements Lab. You really should buy a new computer or console if you wanna 'game'.

Games you can play (note, I am gonna tell you games that can run IRREGARDLESS of whether you have to run the game at the minimum graphics settings. Also, use FRAPS FRAPS show fps, record video game movies, screen capture software to see how many frames per second you get per game. If you luckily are getting high framerate's on lowest graphics settings on games such as Half-Life 2, you can go ahead and increase slightly the resolution and/or graphics settings and see how much it affects your framerate. If it still remains playable, keep raising the settings until you reach the point where you are getting framerates below 30, then stop and reduce it a bit to keep the game at playable framerates.):

Age of Empires 3 (low graphics)
Age of Empires 2
Angry Birds (lolz)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (LOWEST GRAPHICS AND RESOLUTION)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (LOWEST GRAPHICS AND RESOLUTION)
Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2
Command and Conquer: Generals
Counter-Strike (max settings)
Counter-Strike: Source (low settings)
Day of Defeat (max settings)
Day of Defeat: Source (low settings)
Grand Theft Auto: 3
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (lowest graphics settings, maybe max screen resolution if you are lucky)
Half-Life 2
Half-Life 2 EP1
Half-Life 2 EP2
Halo: Combat Evolved (medium to high settings)
Left 4 Dead (lowest graphics settings and resolution)
Left 4 Dead 2 (lowest graphics settings and resolution)
Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven (max-ish settings)
Need for Speed: (all Need for Speeds made before Undercover)
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (lowest graphics and low resolution)
Portal 2 (lowest graphics settings, maybe lowest resolution)
Team Fortress 2 (free, low graphics settings and low resolution)
The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth
The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2
The Sims 2
The Sims 3 (low settings)
The Sims Medieval (low settings)

Good luck!

WOW, thanks dude, I agree system requirement lab doesn't always work, it says that Dead Space Would't work when it did, and that Age Of Empires wouldn't work when it did!

Sadly, I would get a gaming computer but I dont' have enough and I doubt my parents would be happy after I just bought a 500 laptop, Maybe in 4 years!

Dude, you payed that much for your laptop? That is a serious ripoff. You should return the laptop, and spend 500 on a good gaming computer (that you build yourself of course).
