Playing games is something that you either love or you don’t. If you happen to fall within the half that does, then this article is for you. There is nothing more painful than being a gamer without a console or gaming workhorse. Having a normal non-gaming laptop can sometimes not be so bad, you can play games in lower graphics with rendering settings.
Below, we have compiled a list of the best games you can play on your normal laptop or PC, keeping in mind that you will not get the standard 60FPS when gaming but this is not all too bad, at least you can play (smoothly).

An indie farming game that outdoes every other farming game out there (move over Farmville). There is no need to crank the settings down on this one.
