    Really good old games?

    Well, I can recommend:

    - Planescape Torment;
    - Fallout 1 & 2;
    - Civilization 2 & 3;
    - Dungeon Keeper Gold;
    - WarCraft II;
    - Command & Conquer + Tiberium Sun;
    - Command & Conquer: Renegade;
    - Red Alert 1 & 2;
    - Unreal;
    - Quake 1, 2 & 3;
    - Sim City 2000 & 3000;
    - Theme Park;
    - Theme Hospital;
    - Disc World 1 & 2;
    - Money Island 3;
    - Grim Fandango;
    - Rainbow Six;
    - Rainbow Six: Roque Spear;

    Anyway, what Intel GMA graphics are we talking about? GMA 950, X3100, X4500MHD, GMA HD etc.? If it's 950, X3100 or even earlier Intel IGP it would be quite difficult even to play/run games like Deus Ex or any games based on Unreal engine or Quake 3 engine, well, it may run but not with playable framerate, not to mention all the graphical glitches.

    Deus Ex is pretty much a FPS with RPG elements. The older RPGs are a bit heavier than the modern ones, even the "real" ones.

    Oh, Knights of the Old Republic should work on that system.

    When talking RPGs btw, Planescape: Torment is generally regarded as one of the best ever.

    EDIT: I think Settles 2 is the best one in the series. You can't play 10th Anniversary, but the original will work.

    Tremulous. It is an online MP FPS/RTS mix with a human and alien team.
    The battle for Wesnoth, a 2D turn based strategy game in a fantasy setting.

    Both games above are not old games as you claimed to be looking for, but they are leightweight (Trem is running on the ioquake 3 engine, a quake3 derivative) and actively maintained (they are F/OSS projects).

    Although I have never played it (but have always wanted to) I've heard that System Shock 2 is one of the best games of all time.

    I wish they would come out with a remake of some old games. It makes sense to me. They do it with movies, why not games?
