DID YOU KNOW?

Yo low-budget gamers! Did you know that before video game graphics became as stunningly realistic as it is today, people marveled at a video game with just dots and lines on a screen? Thanks to modern technology, the graphics in games have evolved so much that details like sweat, dust, and shadow can be seen clearly and with purpose. In fact, there are some old games which are being recreated using the latest game creators and engines so old players can see them in a new light. But in the late 1950s and early 1960s, people went crazy when they learned that screens can be used for playing games. That’s right! These are the times when the public got excited to play games without graphic card requirements. Public access to these games was very limited, but it was an experience that many coveted in those years. In 1958, the American physicist William Higinbotham used an oscilloscope to invent Tennis For Two, a virtual tennis game where players controlled the lines on the screen’s opposite edges and play with a shuttlecock represented by a line that bounces between the players’ lines. Around four years later, a group of programmers invented Spacewar for a new computer in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The game was about space ships trying to fight for resources in stars. In itself, Spacewar was not much of a game but it is considered as the basis for some of the most popular video games in history, including the Galaxy Game and Asteroids.

We all know the struggle of finding games to play without graphics card and low ram memory, but if you can stomach (well, more like, look at… LOL) the classics, it is easy to find the best games for your low budget PC. Games like the first Sims, Age of Empires, and Warcraft can be enjoyed on your PC without graphics card, while modern games like Dota 2 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds can be enjoyed with integrated graphics but at very low settings.
