Windows 7: Games that will run on Intel HD Graphics 3000

Games that will run on Intel HD Graphics 3000

TL;DR? I just want some more modern, but "lightweight", games...

Anyways. Okay, I know integrated graphics are simply not made for "heavy" graphics and modern games like Crysis, BF3, Skyrim, etc. But I know it cam play some of the modern lighter games. I know of a few but not ones that I play. Not any specific genre, just... Games.

Any help putting a small list together?

I did some searching myself and someone mentioned a list in this thread:
Intel hd graphics 3000?!?
Rage, Call of Duty games, Elder Scrolls:Skyrim, Portal 2, Mass Effect series, Dead Space, Far Cry 2, Starcraft2, WoW:Cataclysm, Left 4 Dead, Dirt 2/3, Bulletstorm, F1, Rift, Hard Reset,Duke Nukem Forever, Resident Evil, WarHammer:Space Marine, Medal of Honor, Driver: San Fransisco, Need For Speed World & Shift, Gears of War, Stalker, Amnesia, Borderlands, Devil May Cry IV, Fear 2/3, Bioshock 1&2, Fifa 2011, Flight Simulator X, Grid, Split Second, Blur.

Heck, if you are ok with low settings, you can play Metro 2033, Crysis/Crysis2, Assassin's Creed, NFS:Hot Pursuit, among others. And of course it plays older/casual games great.
But I know for a fact that integrated Intel HD 3K do not play games like Skyrim and Battlefield 3, etc, etc. Well, maybe it can, but you can not run them very smoothly.

Thanks in advance.

Hm... It does.
But I was hoping for a list of people with (preferably first-hand) experience and games they know that will work with this card on a Windows 7 platform. Or is that exactly what that link is- people who have tested it and not just run a benchmark on the GPU? Usually actual gameplay gives a different

Either way, thank you for that link, because that helps too. :)

B3 4ever, welcome to the Seven Forums.

One small detail you left out from that laptop, it also comes with the Nvidia
GT 525M in it,

LIFEBOOK AH531 - Detailed Specs : Fujitsu Hong Kong

NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M - Tech

which is far and way better than the Intel graphics,

Intel HD Graphics 3000 - Tech

So unless you are disabling the Nvidia to play on the Intel, the Nvidia graphics is where your performance is coming from.
