Budget gamers often give up on the dream of running a high-end game on their system because of the hardware incapability and even though, games are becoming demanding with each passing day, there are some high-end games that can run on 4 GB RAM and deliver good FPS and player experience.



Ghost Runner is an open-world cyberpunk action video game. Ghost runner stands out by being 100% committed to delivering the fantasy of becoming a super fast and deadly assassin. This is a game where you run fast, slide fast, kill fast and if you can't do those things fast enough you die fast. It can be very demanding and requires pinpoint platforming precision and split-second decision-making, but it's rarely ever frustrating thanks to instant response, mostly generous checkpointing and most importantly open-ended combat encounters that offer multiple methods of approach. The only main weapon in Ghost Runner is a sword making it even more challenging and precision-based.



Love it or hate it, Fortnite is definitely one of the most played battle royale game of all time. Ignoring its cartoonish theme, the game is pretty good and addicting. Fortnite is very easy to play but very difficult to win. The players who win are very skilled at the game. It is still the battle royale game to beat. It has a lot going for it including approachable gameplay modes, bright and zany graphics, an excellent construction system and a huge player base. This game can run smoothly on 4 GB RAM, Dual-core CPU and Intel HD 520 graphics.

#3 GTA V

GTA 5 can be played on a low spec computer on low settings with Intel HD 520 and 4 GB of RAM that can give you 20 fops which is playable. If you have never tested GTA 5 on your computer and you want it to do that now then make sure you lower the settings as much as possible so that it runs at a smooth frame rate. Once you get it to run, you can tweak it and if it doesn't affect performance much you can keep the settings. Otherwise, you can always revert them back. It also depends on your system RAM because Intel HD is an integrated GPU and doesn't have its own memory. So it has to take some memory from the system RAM. If you have 4 GB RAM, you can smoothly play the game on low settings but if you have more than 4 GB say 8 GB, you can play the game without lag on decent graphics.
