I tend to use my laptop for email, writing papers, and planning lessons. Boring things. But I also play a lot of games on my laptop.
Browser Games: For a while, my job was playing Kongregate browser games and reviewing them for kids. You can play cuties like Sushi Cat, and other games I reviewed for the kids, or strategy games like Rebuild (I love this one), all without downloading anything.
Slightly Older Games: One of the saddest truths of PC gaming is that there’s always a faster and better computer coming out, pretty much as soon as you get your computer home. Last year’s top-of-the-line gaming rig is this year’s MoR laptop. But that’s pretty good news, if you want to play a slightly older game on a budget gaming laptop.
Indie Games: A lot of indie games are lighter on system requirements, and, if you’re really on a budget, there’s probably a free or inexpensive beta of something cool on Steam. Or finally try one of those games you brought in a Humble Bundle and haven’t played yet…
What about you? What games do you play on your laptop?
