Mixing soccer with rocket cars may not look like a mixture that would combine well, but when Rocket League came out in 2015, it swiftly became the breakout hit of the summer. It’s sustained a solid fan base ever since and the skill ceiling just keeps on going upwards with it. Playing Rocket League doesn’t require a powerful PC at all. As long as you’re willing to let go of a few of the fancier particle and lighting effects, you can play Rocket League with integrated graphics sans difficulty.
Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead gave gamers the zombie apocalypse they wanted well before the genre became overused. As good as the original Left 4 Dead was though, its sequel has all the first game’s campaigns and features, with lots of additions of its own.
Left 4 Dead 2 is as fun today as it was when it first came out in 2009, and it plays amazingly on integrated graphics. You will have to run it at low settings, but the game still looks great for its age.
Half-Life and its sequel are some of the most famous first-person shooters ever made. The fact that Half-Life 3 is still missed lets you know how much. They are solid games and even though a little old in some mechanics, they still make for good single-player and multiplayer experiences. Better yet, because of their age, you can play them on plenty of modern Intel integrated graphics chips at full or near-full settings.
Firewatch is as much an event as it is a game. Some may say it’s a “walking simulator”, but most people know it as a marvelous looking game. While it may not look quite as great as it can on Intel graphics chips, stylized visuals still lure you into its relaxing atmosphere, even at lower settings.
