Would it be worth listing the best emulators to use and good games to play for each platform? Might be a good addition to op, no?

I have no idea about which ones are the best. If you want to put together a list for the thread, that would be great.

Great to hear. I have a N4 as well and wasn't sure how it would run on it. How does it control?

Pixel Defenders Puzzle is on sale. I bought it, it's pretty fun. It's described as a puzzle-tactical RPG, but it's more puzzle than tactical RPG. Still, fun, clever and cheap.

I was thinking we could start a G+ community. Will be easy to find fellow GAF members, and no one will have to directly most their Gmail here. What do you guys think?

Edit: Just noticed there are two. Anyone in the knows about either of them?

The biggest problem is that there is a lot of shovelware and non-games in the list that you potentially downloaded while fooling around. For example, my list has stuff like Talking Dinosaurs and that Ginger cat that I downloaded for my cousin. It would be wonderful if there was a smart filter that distincted actual games you got busy with -- or even better, manual categorization la Steam. I suppose that a filter for games that use Play Games API will eventually come, but even if future games support it, there will still be older ones that won't get updated.

Retroarch is the only emu you need. Free, best performance (runs native not java), and has all the major emu cores in one app.

I love retroarch but this isn't actually true. Some retroarch cores are slower or have other performance issues compared to other emulators. There are some emulators worth buying like fpse and epsxe.

Awesome! I have been using a few but this is kind of a catch-all which is amazing.

For some reason I am worried that a PSX game will make my phone explode though. Not sure why.

I've been waiting for the Android port, bought it not too long after you posted. Works great on my Nexus 7 (2012). Plays great too, started it up after I bought it to try it out and ended up playing for almost two hours. After some more play sessions, I've finally made it to the 1-star restaurant. Cook, Serve, Delicious! is definitely a great deal at $2.99. Highly recommended.

While researching games for the thread, I came across so many good titles that I never knew about. That was the most frustrating thing about the older thread. The inability to look up games without having to dig back through pages.

I looked up the game, doesn't appear anyone else is having those issues. And it doesn't look like a graphics heavy game. Its only this game that causes those problems?

World of Goo is a brilliant game, been playing it on my phone, great sound and the controls are amazing. It was the first indie title I ever wanted, I saw my cousin playing it on his Wii but never got it so snapped it up for my Xperia Z. the only negative is that on the 1080p display the icons are veeeery small.

I cannot believe you've tried out psx on retroarch and said this. Fpse is awful and epsxe is a paid app that doesn't run even close. Just make sure to put bios file in folder where your games are for best compatibility. I get full 60fps with tekken 3 on my note 2 with no frame skip which is not possible for me in fpse.

Kingdom rush is probably the best tower defense game I've played. I've been playing the shit out of it on my HTC One and I'm sure I'll enjoy it a lot more when the nexus 7 comes because of the bigger size. I've probably put 4 to 5 hours into it.

How the hell did I miss this post! I've been aching to try out this game ever since I saw that QL. Great to see there's an Android version!
Just beat the demo and thought it was great, I'll be buying the full version for sure. Will you be implementing any of the Google Play Services? edit: Just saw the icon in the bottom left corner. I see you already support it with achievements! Wonder why the store page doesn't say anything...

It's so simple that Sega doesn't had any way to screw it. You just have the left and right directional buttons on one side and the accelerate and break/reverse on the other, but you still can do the crazy drift, crazy spin, etc (all the "crazy" stuff) . And it feels very responsive to me.

Both epsxe and fpse work great in my experience and both support open gl plugins which allow the use of stuff like texture filtering and anti aliasing, which rearmed does not (at least the latest version I tried). And yeah I have them all installed n my tablet.
