"Back in the early days of smart phones, we saw some bangers release with games like flappy bird, cut the rope, fruit ninja, and family feud. While I don't play mobile games any more, I remember how fun it was showing your friends that new weird game you found and everyone having fun with it for a night trying to get the high score."
"Expectations are key! There are a lot of creative games out there. I love puzzles and this are abundant. However the ad situation is out of control. Most of these games are just too get a penny out of you and are click bait. "
"I think the game matters. The device definitely matters, gaming on my phone is better for things like Wild Rift, but then games like TFT are much better on my 13" iPad. Overall, mobile gaming has it's spots, and that we are moving toward getting better and better mobile versions has made it more enjoyable."
"I've gotta say, this isn't necessarily coming based off of anything you can play right out of the app store. Rather, it's due to a combination of things like the Steam Link and Gamepass apps, cloud gaming, and the awesome mobile controllers (my go-to is the Razer Kishi). I've played a bunch of gamepass stuff I wouldn't have otherwise had the time to get to if it was a matter of sitting at my computer and using valuable "real gaming time", and over the steam link I've managed quite a few hours in things like No Man's Sky.
Not sure I would use this setup for any kind of online competitive multiplayer gameplay, but for the more casual or single player games, it's amazing."
"The convenience is the best part, and it does have a solid library of games. But the controls only really work for a subset of them, and really hinder everything else. This thing has Chrono Freaking Trigger....but, the controls suck for it. Maybe if I invested in a proper mobile controller it'd be better, but at that point I may as well reach for my Switch. I'll touch on my fav games as I like to do - Pokemon Go, Mario Kart Tour, Dune!, Angry Birds series, What the Golf."
"Changes mine to a 4 star. Reason because there are more and more mobile controllers being developed and more and more ways to play AAA games on your phone. Gamepass, PS remote, and other 3rd party apps like moonlight. Mobile/cloud gaming is just getting started"
"Is it convenient, absolutely. These days convenience is everything. Most games are F2P but they are also P2W. 98% also require an internet connection now so good luck with that. It is definitely frustrating if I want to play a game while on a plane (looking at you Zombie Gunship) "
"Mobile games are great for the go although I think the switch is better. There are some good mobiles games but most of them are knockoffs or just have a ton of ads. There are not really popular gaming phones except one plus which is specifically made for gaming and is not great to have as a real phone."
"I really think mobile gaming is a struggle. Too many pay walls or ads that ruin the experience. If I want to game , then I want to game. I don't want to play for 5 minutes and then have to wait until tomorrow for my turns to replenish. "
"It really depends more on the game than on the phone. Some games are great, most are cash grabs, play them and have fun until you hit a paywall. I like had accessible it is and you can play games anywhere."
