Default Anyone Heard Of This/Know about it

Right i got a lot of adventure games right and i bought 2 new ones called Culpa Innatra & DARKNESS WITHIN: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder.Both of these games require minimum 128mb graphics card right.

Now my confusion comes when i play this on me 64mb card.And surprisingly enough they both work.Ok not perfectly soon as they come on.But once i gain control on both of these games gameplay is acceptable - good.Now how come i can play these games on my crappy graphics card when min requirements are saying 128mb graphics card minimum.Some one got any advice cause its like me pc been given upgrade and my graphics card cant be upgraded

er... what exactly is the problem? seems to me you should be happy enough being able to run the games on lousy 64mb. my guess is the "minimum" requirements are actually "recommended" requirements. the stuff you need to get the games up and running at maximum performance, you digg?

My old laptop from a few years ago had an 8MB video card (yes, 8!) and I remember playing a few adventure games that had 16MB minimum card requirements (and even one 32MB requirement game).

I'm not sure why that is in some cases but it's always a nice surprise when it happens.
