    Gaming on a laptop?

    Does anyone game on a laptop? Would suit me as I am always away from home but the small screen puts me off a little.

    Thoughts?

    I only PC game on a laptop, don't even own a desktop.

    I don't generally gravitate towards high-end graphics intensive games, though. More turn-based chit. Got a midgrade gaming laptop in December, hope it lasts ~4-5 years before I need to upgrade. Sunk $1,300 into it and another $200 top install a 2TB SSD as I ran out of 1/2TB almost instantly. Lesson learned.

    I also don't sit down and play games for more than an hour at a time, so I worry less about it overheating.

    If you need the portability, yes.

    If not, no.

    That's just way too big a screen.

    The response from the controller to the TV doesn't sync up.

    The best monitors are dedicated desktop gaming monitors.

    I've got a 2080 laptop that runs 4 screens including the laptop itself. 2 1080p 23" on the sides of a 28" 1440p. Runs smooth AF.

    Cost me around $1600 on black friday. (HP Omen 15t), what was stupid was I went with the 240Hz screen.. no need since its a 15.6".

    I bought a gaming laptop a few years ago. It can't run Red Dead 2 nor Bannerlord. So something that costed me $1,500 (bought it outside of USA so got value added tax raped to death) is practically a paper weight. Gaming laptops are such underpowered overpriced pieces of chit. I literally thought about ditching a laptop and just lugging around a Xbox around the world (semi-serious).


    Laptops are pretty much only good for playing old games or playing strategy games. Can't count on them being good for FPS.


    The monitors on laptops are likewise not good for FPS gaming. I'm playing games that have bolt action rifles and I'm squinting and somehow can't see guys who are like 80+ meters away. But they're able to see me and headshot me. I remember playing the game on a desktop and being able to see far away without issues.

    I've had 2 gaming laptops past 5 years both costed around £800-£900 and both have ran everything I've tried to play without any issues. The first one I got tho ran its course after 4 years and got slower obviously but the new one I bought I can run practically anything so I can't imagine what a more higher end laptop over mine would be able to run etc lol.

    I've always preferred laptops over desktops tho due to the portability and the comfort from being able to play in bed or even anywhere. I'm not saying laptops are "better" because obviously you can get higher end desktops ALOT cheaper but for me ill always go the laptop route personally.

    Well Red Dead 2 is apparently horribly otpimized for PC. Being a crap port. But it doesn't really explain why my machine tanked with an early version of Bannerlord. I haven't bothered downloading Bannerlord so I don't know if they've since optimized it again or not.
