The HD 3000 can run NFS, but you need to test which settings it will play on, it will easily play on low settings, maybe medium, depends which NFS your talking about.

The benefit of dedicated is it doesn't use your system's RAM, it uses its own RAM,
And in most cases is better than shared/integrated graphics depending on which graphics card you have got.

I wouldn't run NFS: The Run on an Intel HD3000 even if it could run it. NFS: The Run uses Frostbite 2 engine the same engine that was used in Battlefield 3, so I doubt it will even run, or even if it could you'll be playing a slideshow.

I might've been a bit harsh on a "slideshow" comment, but it wouldn't be an enjoyable experience on an Intel HD3000 on low quality.

The HD3000 can play Assassin's creed with everything high but with multi-sampling low, not sure if there is any difference between the mobile and desktop versions, can play all mass effects on high, can probably play most of the games you listed on low to medium fine, high settings maybe some lag.
