Okay so I'm a broke college student who likes to play games, i have a Sony VAIO VPCF1


It has a i7 Q740 1.73 Ghz

Nvidia GT 425M

4gb Ram

And a hard drive


The games now are too demanding, need suggestions for games I can play smoothly on this slow crappy laptop to kill some quarantine time ;-;

Not really answering your question but another 4GB of RAM, cheap SSD, and cleaning it out/repasting will help a lot. Also I'd toss a light Linux distro on it.

You can probably handle most games if you're willing to go low enough on the quality and resolution. You should probably stick to 720p, but from there you can likely do low-medium in a lot of things. There may be some games that just refuse to run, but you'd just have to try them.
