    If you're looking to play any modern games, you're not going to find anything near the £200 mark.

    Laptops that you can even think of playing any sorts of games on start at £400-500 and even they won't be able to play most games well. So no I'm afraid there are no gaming laptops for under £200

    ​Not looking to play any modern games that need high end specs to be played. Not bothered about having games at Ultra graphics.

    Just about any modern game will be either unplayable on the lowest setting or barely manage 30fps. The former being the most likely.

    What games do you want to play as this will mean if there is an option to point you to then we can. However don't get your hopes up.

    maybe from a bloke in a pub

    lol...thats the funniest ask I've seen on here for a long time. Get a secondhand Xbox or PS

    £200 won't be enough fella. You'll need a lot more than that.

    Not possible, I tried playing wow legion in my fiancé's laptop while I'm currently building my gaming PC, and honestly the fps is avg 10/12 fps, lowest is 4fps and highest is 24fps, it's almost unplayable.

    Thats ps4 territory

    Building a gaming pc for £200 is not far off impossible when buying new parts so a gaming laptop for that price is impossible.

    Which games are you looking to play?

    ​I'm not looking for a new one. I know that would be impossible.

    I'm looking for something that for something that will play games like Sim City, Planet Coaster (when it is out) and older games like Age of Empires.

    Planet Coaster's minimum requirement for a graphics card is an Nvidia GTX 560 / ATI Radeon 7850 Graphics card with 2GB of Graphics Memory or better. Just looking at prices on ebay for a mobile equivalent (the HD 7970M) you're already eating up your entire budget. That's for the MINIMUM graphics card alone...and a laptop is more than just a graphics card.
