Ok, so it has been years since these phones have been out and all i have been hearing for the past while is cell phone games are the future and consoles / pcs are doomed. I thought I would check it out for myself, see what all the hype is about.
I got myself an android phone, because I don't and never will support apple ever (I have hated Apple since I was a kid over 20 years ago and had to play with a 1 button mouse.. what a joke). Anyways, I have downloaded and tried probably over 100 games. Both demos for full, and ad suported free ones, or actual free ones.
Now, I have to say that out of those 100 or so games, I have deleted 98 of them because they were absolute garbage (at the top list on adroid store). One of those games I kept was not at the top list either, but I tell you it is one of the best games I have ever played. Yes, this is true, on a phone.
The game I played was, well, a bowling one, and Game Dev Story. I bought the full version for $2.50. and I have put over 60 hours into it.. Yes, over 60 hours... Now THIS is a game. I actually feel myself drawn into it and very interested, I can not keep myself away and have to constantly recharge my phone now..
So, my overall thoughts on gaming on smart phones vs console/pc.. Well, while there are a few games that are very worth playing, they have mountains of actual garbage piled on top of them and are almost impossible to find.
The ratio of good to bad games for these phones is around 1:100, on consoles and pc, I would say that is more like 1:9 or 1:10.
After playing some games on my phone.. I really get bored fast and actually think to myself this is enough of this, I want to play a game now, and I load up my PC or Xbox.
I would have to say there there are some definite hidden gems out there on the smart phones, however, if you really want some fun gaming you really should stick to console or pc.
