Gaming hardware has been getting more technically powerful as the years go by, with games now taking more advantage of cutting-edge technology like ray-tracing and dynamic lighting.

However, high-end gaming hardware is expensive and hard to come by. Fortunately for most players, there are still a number of great mid-tier laptops that possess decent specs and can run some of the best modern games.

Here, we take a look at five games that are not as demanding in terms of hardware requirements in 2020.

5) Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 breathed new life into the Far Cry franchise and is simply a blast from start to finish. While Far Cry 2 was also well-received, Far Cry 3 is perhaps the best in the series due to its more accessible nature.

Far Cry 3's Vaas is one of the most iconic villains in gaming history and was the reason that the Far Cry series found its identity with menacing, colourful villains.
