where game-ID is the ID shown on the addressbar on the store page of each game and Steam will automatically check if your PC can run the game.
For example: Dishonored
Displaying 1 - 40 of 42 results.
This is awesome! Thanks
Psy, I was trying to say thanks...:P
Indeed,it was a compliment not an insult.

Wow really nice, didn't knew about this option until now.
It is accurate a lot of the time but it's not always accurate. It's said many times to me that I can't run a game when I can run it on the highest settings... so just keep that in mind when using it.
Well the requirements are set by the developers and Steam just compares them with your system specs , so it sure won't be 100% accurate but it's kinda useful :)
Nice. I wonder if my Steam can run marathons.
Marathon series isn't very hardware-demanding, I'm sure it could handle it.
It says I can run Dishonored but when I check the requirements myself, I can see I don't meet any of them.
You might be surprised if you actually try
Why is this not an actual link on the store page? Why?!
Possibly a work in progress?
nice.. thanks :)
Cool thanks for telling us :D
it doesnt work. right now i'm on a pc that wont run Dishonored even if I try, because it's Windows XP and the minimum is windows vista, but it says my computer meets the minimum requirements.
You don't need Vista/7 to run dishonored. I have XP on my rig and I've beaten dishonored on it. Unless they've changed the specs since I played...
Just checked specs on the steam store page, it says it requires vista/7 OS minimum but it's running on DirectX 9 which is still within the auspices of XP
Developers have recently begun listing Vista/7 as a minimum req, even when their game runs on XP. Probably due to them not testing it on any XP machines. It's rather annoying.
I can run 3Dmark & 3Dmark 11 on XP according to this
That's helpful, thanks doode.
This is piece of sh*t. Steam says, i can run Dishonored on Intel GMA3100..
You might be able to
^This. It may not run properly but it might still run.
yes, I agree with the other comments, I think it does not work properly... it says I can run Dishonored, Skyrim, Far Cry 3 and Defiance on my crappy laptop (never in a million years -.-)
I've frequently played games with graphics cards that are nowhere near the level required
Well, to be honest it doesn't say you can play it, it says you meet the minimum requirements and you can run it, which means starting it and seeing at least a frame =)
Why did I read the title as: Can you ruin this game?
I must be really tired or something. :F
Wooo this is really interesting, but yeah I don't think it works
No, I refuse to believe this PC can run Dishonored. I'ma do some other checks about games that I know are working or not, brb.
Okay, so according to this little bastard, my rig could actually run these:
Magicka, Crysis, Metro 2033, Arma 3, The Witcher 2, CS: GO
My system specifics: Geforce 6600 series GPU, AMD Athlon 2800+ 1600 Mhz CPU, 1 GB RAM.
Yeah, this thing ain't so accurate. While this PC can surprise me with what it can still run decently (Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light comes to my mind, I was actually able to finish it on this without lagging), I for one know that CS: GO and Magicka aren't running on this, and there's no way fucking ARMA 3 would even get to a menu with a setup like this.
SOMEONE ELSE WITH 1GB OF RAM!!!
cries of happiness
Maybe it can walk it?
I lol'd pretty hard, actually.
It seems flawed. It tells my laptop can run games it most certainly can not. I think if the graphics card/chip has not been mentioned in the system requirements, it automatically assumes it can run on minimal settings.
I'd imagine it's inaccurate as hell.
Oh okay, so should I try Skyrim now? :c
"That puush could not be found."
Puush is failing me xD here.
So I have 1GB of RAM, and a graphics card with 256MB of memory, and Shader Model 2.0. But it looks like I can run Borderlands 1 and 2, The Witcher 2, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Far Cry 3, Crysis 2, Dishonored...
Where exactly do I type this?
In your browser, which redirects you to Steam.
Doesn't work for me, I get redirected to a google search for it
Edit: It appears my google chrome is the problem, it works in firefox.
For those who have browsers that don't let this trick work. just make a shortcut on your desktop with this steam address as the target.
It, just like that system requirements lab website, probably sees shared video ram as dedicated video ram, giving an inaccurate reading.
It only works for a few games for me.
it works for every game on Steam
Well, doesn't worked for me.
Cool, didn't know about this. Thanks for the info!
I wonder if there are other hidden steam features we don't know about :?
I recall they once had a funny language chat test where typing some stuff will give you not so predictable results. They already fixed it though.
Nope. Can't seem to find a link but all I remember on it is if you type a bunch of characters together without spaces back at least 2-3 years ago, it'll give a weird word in the chat when you hit enter.
Sounds pretty useless ;D No wonder it got removed
It was when Valve was testing a new language translation.
This is really inaccurate.
Please show me any similar tool that is actually accurate.
Even this is better.
My ass is better that CYRI
I highly doubt I meet the system requirements for Arma 3 Alpha and the new Tomb Raider.
Please note: minimum system requirements !!!
Wow, nice feature :3 thanks!
I luv you. Thanks! :D
Interesting feature. Nice find.
Thanks for sharing.
Interesting, thanks! Not that I need it :P
didn't know this, thanks!
But where do I have to type it??
inside your browsers addressbar
If you mean the Steam addressbar it won't let me use it
put it in your browser address bar or even the start menu. it's a steam:// url so the steam client will handle it.
Solved. Chrome just googles what I put in the address bar, tried with IE (don't kill me pls) and it worked
I did it perfectly fine on Google Chrome. You need Steam already open FYI.
Steam is always running in my pc, it's just Chrome who decides to troll me and search on Google instead of running the checksys
as long as you're not using ie to look at webpages i'll let it slide
Or you can use Win+R and type it there.
i love you now
Only a few games worked for me. Weird, but still useful.
