Do you have a weak PC with Windows 7 or lower? No problem! We bring you a list of 12 games for this setup! These are games that run on the most basic Windows operating systems, requiring little memory and very little processing on your computer! Check out the list below!

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Minimum requirements

  • Sistema Operational: Windows® 7/Vista/XP
  • Processor: Intel® Core ™ 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom ™ X3 8750
  • Memory: 2 GB of RAM
  • Video card: 265 MB integrated
  • Storage: 15 GB of free space

This is one of the most addictive and competitive shooting games ever created. You can play it offline if you want, but it's in the online mode, with other players, that all the fun is found.



The game is full of modes, weapon options and increasingly counts with internationally renowned competitions. Today, there are even those who bet on CS:GO! It is a light game, however, that runs on a more humble PC and with an older operating system, such as Windows 7 or even Vista and XP.

10 tips for those who play in competitive mode!

2. Horizon Chase: Turbo

Minimum requirements:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 or newer
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz or better
  • Memory: 2 GB of RAM
  • Video Card: Intel HD Graphics 4000 or better
  • Storage: 500 MB of available space

A game that captivates precisely for its simplicity and, of course, for being a 100% Brazilian creation! Horizon Chase: Turbo is visibly based on the classics of the Top Gear series, both in terms of mechanics and visuals and soundtrack.



You will accelerate with more than a dozen cars through tracks from all over the world. Rain, snow, sun, with turbo or without turbo: fun is guaranteed in this title, which, despite being released in 2022, runs well on any Windows 7.

  • Processor: Pentium III or Athlon
  • Memory: 256MB of RAM
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce 3 Ti / ATI Radeon 8500 32 MB
  • Storage: 3 GB of free space

Horror game lovers don't need a super PC to get scared every now and then. The classic Silent Hill 2 is proof of that! No need for very elaborate graphics. In fact, it is precisely because of the absence of powerful graphics that the creatures of SH2 are scary.

This is a must-play game for anyone who enjoys the genre. And as we can see, its minimum requirements are not difficult to achieve. Even with an older operating system.

True RPG fans need to play this Dragon Age. All the elements of the genre are there, whether in the mechanics or in the narrative. It is an indispensable title for anyone who wants to have a unique experience in terms of history. combat and character development.

Perhaps it is one of the heaviest games on the list, in the sense that it will require a slightly stronger processor than the other games on the list. But nothing too serious, which certainly means that you and your PC can spend dozens of hours venturing through the game's quests.

10. Mount & Blade: Warband

Minimum requirements:

  • OS: Windows® XP

  • Memory: 512MB RAM
  • Video Card: 3D video card with 64MB RAM
  • Storage: 100 MB of available space

Mount & Blade: Warband is one of the most complex games on the list. There isn't exactly a plot or a passage of time. The game is really action focused. There are 6 factions that the player can be a part of, in addition to being able to become a mercenary, if you want.

There are very strong story elements, including the possibility of becoming a vassal to the faction leaders. It's well worth it for combat, as you can order units to form a "perfect" strategy in order to defeat enemies. Apart from that it has a robust online multiplayer mode.

11. Sleeping Dogs

  • DirectX: 10 Version
  • Storage: 20 GB available space

Sleeping Dogs is one of the good action-adventure games for those with a weaker PC. It's not very original, as it features a policeman who infiltrates the Chinese mafia to fight it. Even so, it manages to be a very intense game, with good action scenes and that convinces.

It has received a definitive and optimized edition, but it doesn't pose that much danger to your computer. It's well worth getting, as it's one of the few AAA games that run well on low-end machines.

12. Need for Speed Underground 2

  • Processador: Intel Pentium III / AMD Athlon MP
