The Best Games You Can Play on Intel Integrated Graphics (Part II)

Layerunknown’s Battlegrounds

Computer gaming doesn’t always require a graphics card.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the largest breakout hit of 2017, being called by many as the pinnacle of “battle royale” gameplay. It wouldn’t have reached such heights if gamers with weak systems couldn’t really play it. While the minimum system requirements do say to have at least a low-level graphics card, some have been successful in working without that. If you’re willing to deal with sapped colors and a blocky resolution, Battlegrounds is very playable on an assortment of Intel HD graphics chips.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Grand Theft Auto series of anarchy simulators is one of the most well-known franchises in gaming history. Its most recent entry, GTA V, is typically used as an example of incredible world-building and it looks just as good today as it did following its 2013 release. That doesn’t mean you can’t play it on integrated graphics though.

You might need to sacrifice detail levels and frame rate smoothness, based on your preferences. Though, there are lots of folks who have made this game work without a graphics card. There are even mods that can aid you in running the game on ultra-low-end hardware if you need to.


League of legends

Famous as the most popular competitive PC game in the world and poster child for the MOBA’s dominance of online gaming, League of Legends is simple to get running on an assortment of hardware. You want to be sure you’re hitting a good frame rate, as low frames per second can offer you a disadvantage in online play, but that’s not difficult to do, even with older Intel HD graphics.

Riot Games is consistently tweaking its

game’s visuals to make sure that it looks fabulous while still supporting lower-end and older hardware. Its minimum specifications don’t really hint at the need for a graphics card.
