Many games released in the last few years require less powerful GPUs. Especially indie games.
A few of my favorites:
Indivisible on Steam
Indivisible is a hand drawn action RPG platformer from Lab Zero, creators of the critically acclaimed Skullgirls! Set in a huge fantasy world, Indivisible tells the story of Ajna, a fearless girl with a rebellious streak who sets out on a quest to save everything she knows from being destroyed.
(Yes, Indie games will often run on less powerful machines.)
Secret of Mana on Steam
The memorable adventure of Randi, Primm and Popoi is reborn as Secret of Mana! Originally released in 1993, Secret of Mana is by far the most popular title in the “Mana” series and has now undergone a much-awaited full 3D remake!
(I played Secret of Mana on an Intel integrated GPU, their requirements are not well estimated at all.)
I am Setsuna on Steam
Inspired by the timeless classic Chrono Trigger, I am Setsuna is a great homage to the JRPG masterpieces of yesteryear. Journey with Setsuna as she prepares to make the ultimate sacrifice and save the people of her land.
(Old-style RPGs often use simple effects effectively. ?)
Step Into a Vast Magical World of Adventure
(I mean… GenshinImpactis still kind of big.)
Dead by Daylight | A Multiplayer Action Survival Horror Game
Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer survival horror & action game where one player takes on the role of the Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors.
(There were too many RPGs here. Sorry , that’s my favorite genre.)
Grand Theft Auto – Rockstar Games
Drive dozens of varied vehicles around three of America’s toughest cities.Only the best will be able to tame the fastest cars. Only the smartest will know all the shortcuts and the whereabouts of the hottest wheels.Only the toughest will be able to…
(GTA 5 is still modern, I guess. And Rockstar will point a gun to your head to make sure it last a long time. Also, they are totally not holding a gun to my head for me to say this.)
I’m sure that with 10 minutes more research I could find a bunch of modern games with require less than a GTX 770. Just don’t expect to run the newest, flashiest AAA games out there. Those are usually visual showcases for those companies’ new engines.
But hey, maybe give some indie gems a try? (Also, play GTA 5, because I love it very very much and Rockstar is a great company with great people and an amazing work and marketing ethic.)
