    I've been looking to see what games will run on my netbook so thought that I'd post it up here and compile a list of which people can add to. Note that a lot of the titles in this list were not tested personally as I don't own all these games lol. I have tried quite a few of the below games though so have little doubt that the rest will work (The titles in bold have been tested by me and 100% work with below specifications).

    I just tried Trine out and it just won't launch, will have to troubleshoot it when I get back from work.

    TF2 on an Eee PC 1000H, apparently. Though it looks like it takes aaaages to load a map, and needs a custom config.

    I've tried everything to get Trine to run on my netbook to no avail :(

    Minimum requirements are just way too high for it.

    I can play most games on my netbook, but that's cos it's an N10J with an Nvidia 256MB 9300M GS. :D

    been playing Trine on my media center maybe i should give it a run on the N10

    Depends, they may work but not run smoothly. I'm looking for games that are more than playable.

    C&C Generals is just playable in my opinion, can't really do more than 2v2 otherwise it just slows down to a crawl. Games more intensive than this just wouldn't be run well enough to be able to play a game.
