Watching a game
trailer can really hype you up. A lot of the time, you become very
intrigued by what you saw that buying the game is a no-brainer.
However, before buying a game, you have to remember a few

System requirements have minimal and recommended settings.
Most players who are intent on playing the game always aim for the recommended.
However, to play the game at its most minimal, you need far less. Take note
however that these minimal settings often come with major tradeoffs in terms of
gaming experience. While you can still play the entire game’s story, you may
not appreciate it as much with poor
graphics and long loading times.
Check How Your Setup
If your PC’s hardware is somewhere in the middle of the
minimal and recommended settings, you can always find out if it is enough.
Several sites can estimate whether your PC can handle a game by matching it
with experiences of other users. All you need are specific details of your
hardware. Finding out the name (brand), model, and size of your processor, hard
drive, memory, and graphics card is a good start. To get these, simply right
click on your ‘My Computer’ folder and select ‘Properties’.
Games are fun, however you should note that modern games can
have high requirements. Newer games, especially the big ones, fall in this
