    Nobody will ever convince me there is any reason why I should want to play games on a machine with a 5" screen and limited processing power, when I have a fast PC with a 32" monitor to play games on.

    Hearthstone - but only because i already spend so much time on it that it would be waste to stop. Honestly i would recommend to install any.

    Reminds me of my first phone, all of my friends had Nokias and were playing Snake..
    I said to the guy in the shop when he showed me my phone (Siemens S6 iirc), what games does it have on it..

    He replied, if you want games, buy a f'ing Gameboy...

    Most of the rest are setup to bleed you dry and frustrate you or just to waste time - I don't play games on my phone anymore aside from hearthstone (and even then I prefer to plan on my Surface)
    I tried PUBG when it first launched and the game was full of bots who'd stand there and let you win. Not a challenge and not remotely comparable to the PC version. Players effectively cheating with m/kb doesn't make me any more interested in going back.

    There's an extremely small minority of phone games that aren't either: 1) bad ports/clones of games that're better elsewhere, or 2) mediocre games designed around extracting money from you

    I just like to play really simple, minimalist puzzle games. Things like Hook, Math and yellow. Though I do usually get bored after an hour or two with each game!

    And keyboards are for playing Beethoven on, mice are for eating cheese, desktops are for putting writing materials on, screens are for use in a printing press, your point is what? You do realise people usually use almost every other way of communicating on their phone other that calls; texts, telegram, facebook, facetime. Basically it 2019 and phones are definitely not just for making calls anymore and infact have become pocket computers, are you fully defrosted from the cryogenic chamber yet?

    Rarely bother playing games on my phone but when I do those that I enjoyed the most are Plague Inc, Ridiculous Fishing and The Room (original or the sequels, they're all fun).

    Bunch of grumpy, lying little luddites on this forum, eh.....?

    Any device connected to the internet has just one primary purpose, which requires that you certify you are over the age of consent in your particular country.... and you each know full well what I'm talking about!!

    This is also why smartphones have glorious 1080p and higher!

    Re: QOTW: Which smartphone games are worth playing?

    These days, not the foggiest, I used to like playing games on my phone, but there is so much chaff of games purely designed about trying to rake in cash, instead of fun games, I would have no idea where to start any more.
