    I don't know if it has already been mentioned, but Diablo 2 requirements aren't very high. It ran on my old poopy computer very well. I didn't have any trouble installing it with Wine either.

    The first two Elder Scrolls games (Arena and Daggerfall) are available for free download and both run very well on ANY machine with DOSBox. Tons of information about both games is on the Interwebs, too.

    ... You might try Minetest. Pretty nifty game from what I have seen, and you might be able to run it okay from what I know. Should be easier to run than Minecraft...
    see https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applicat...cise/minetest/
    best to download or recompile from latest sources:

    You should be able to run older windows games like deus ex, thief series etc, via wine/playonlinux, go have a look on GOG, plenty of good old games available?

    Also look into emulation, mame, N64, Amiga etc etc.

    System Shock 2 + Mods. I'm not entirely sure how well the mods might work through Wine, however. Nor do I know if there are native versions of SS2 or SS2 mods.

    Well, I own a Windows Steam copy of SS2, and it hasn't shown up in my Linux library the way the Orange Box games did about 9 months ago, so I'd say that there is currently no native SS2 port.

    Also to note besides the PCSX Reloaded emulator, those specs should run a PS2 Emulator too. I am pretty sure my computer can even do that. And again, it's specs are pretty low. But it is a pain to dump bios from your PS2. Now with steam out, you can check it for games that will run. Pretty sure TF2 Runs on some low specs. (Maybe higher than mine, but pretty sure lower than OPs looking up the c7 Chromebook.)

    This is a pretty old post though. Should this be a sticky just for people to add games as they find them for this thing?
