Hey guys.. I have no idea what to play, well I will be getting a new computer in a few months and I had this one for 9 years.
I only have 504 ram and my graphics card is not even on a common list plus its shit.
well I can run ace of spades, terraria (lowest graphics and a small world), other than that I can't or don't know what to play.

If you have suggestions please help,
Thanks in advance.

UT1999, Quake 1-2, Empire Earth, Half-Life <--old crappy rig
Skyrim, DayZ, Unturned, TF2, Gmod, Red Orchestra 2 (it was free on steam), SAMP/MTA:SA (different servers, but I use SAMP), Just Cause 2, UT2k4 (don't bother with 3), Minecraft, StarCraft 1/2, Total War Rome 2 (may be very resource intensive), Fallout 3/New Vegas, BF3/4, Dark Souls/2 (if you have a controller), Fistful of Frags, Synergy, Neotokyo, No More Room in Hell

Your computer is exactly like mine, half of those which Xpert658 said will have extremely bad fps for you, but some, if put onto the lowest graphics possible, you may reach 40-60 fps.

Gmod. A potato can run that game, and its fun as hell. Only 7.99 on Steam I think

It's actually $9.99. But I agree with you, Gmod is a really fun game, definitely get it if you can.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Counter-strike & Counter-Strike:Source can totally run on bad PCs, can they?

Okay, so you're asking suggestions on kewl-ass PCs of today, or crappy PCs of a million years ago? (metaphorically)

Gmod doesn't run on shitty PCs AFAIK.
I've tried 12 on an old rig. 16 FPS unplayable. Went and got a nuke mod. Yeah...
If you wanna play Gmod with Michael Bay-level fights and effects and whatnot, you better get a new PC.
But yes, it's cheap. You also need CSS for more content.

Soldat, a mobile phone could probably run it.

You've got to run it reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal low on everything if you want it to be playable though.

Soldat, Freelancer, Deus Ex, GTA San Andreas, Pokemon Showdown, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Morrowind are other suggestions. The latter two can be a bit iffy when it comes to your GPU depending what mods/updates you put on them (I had many BSODs as a result).

If you've got a widescreen monitor, you might as well try Faster Than Light. Not exactly my kind of game but it works on a lot of PCs.

Doom can run on pretty much everything. Dwarf Fortress too, but it can get CPU intensive.

I recommend Zandronum for the multiplayer, and Doomsday or Risen3D for the eye candy.

I just use Zandronum for everything. Works for most.
