Budget Gaming While Under Quarantine

Last March 16, 2020, President Rodrigo Duterte announced the implementation of an enhanced community quarantine in Luzon to address the threat of COVID-19 spreading and infecting more people. Traveling to and from other cities is not allowed anymore and residents are advised to stay home unless you are going out to shop for basic necessities or seeking medical attention from clinics or hospitals.

While being stuck at home due to the quarantine may be a favorable situation for PC gamers who want to play for extended periods, some of us stuck with a low-end GPU may worry if they can actually enjoy gaming during this hard times. All of the games we will show here are playable with a Radeon RX 550 at 1080p using a reasonable image quality (NOTE: Not everything set to Low). If you are using a laptop with Ryzen 5 3500U (Vega 8), you may need to lower the resolution to 1366 x 768 or 1280 x 720 and further tweak the graphics settings.

Using an Intel HD630? No problem, too. See our YouTube playlist for games you can play at 1080p using Intel HD630.
