    I'm wondering if 2016 Macbook Pro 13"(Base, w/o TB, 256 SSD, 8GB, 2Ghz) play games like GTA 5 at 30fps?

    Light gaming only. Don't expect AAA games to run on anything less than choppy.

    Please keep your uninformed opinion elsewhere. GTA 5 on minimum runs 40-50 fps on 13

    It depends what your standards are.

    This year's AAA are unlikely, as is anything that wants 4 cores and can't be tricked with hyperthreading (more games than you'd think).

    For older AAA games, it's more about will it work at all rather than will it be pretty - expect low settings and a just passible framerate.

    Although I played Dark Souls II on a 2013 Macbook Air at 25fps, so my standards might be lower than yours...

    Anything non-AAA or designed for a wide system gamut (eg Overwatch) will be fine. GTA5 might be fine, it scales to hardware well.
