A few years ago, console gaming such as Xbox, Play Station, and Nintendo are the ones favorable by hard-core gamers. The reason behind this is because of the awesome graphics, story line, and the number of triple-A game titles available for purchase worldwide. Nowadays, gaming already evolved and there are lots of new players in the gaming industry such as using a dedicated gaming desktop computer or gaming notebook from popular brands such as MSI, Asus, Razer, Acer Predator, Alienware, etc. There are also new players in gaming consoles such as the Steam gaming console, plus the continuous growth of development of powerful octa-core mobile devices such as tablet and smartphones that brings mobile gaming to a whole different level.
Smartphones that are being released in the market these days are almost equipped with minimum hexa-core processors and majority are already octa-core powered by Snapdragon processors and some MTK variants. In addition, they are also powered by powerful GPU to be able to run 3D games without experiencing any delay or lag during gameplay. Thanks to the advancement of technology as smartphones now are almost integrated with atleast 2GB or 3GB of memory and up to 4GB to some flagship devices.
I was able to get my hands on some mid range smartphones from brands like Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, Huawei and I was really satisfied with the performance of these handsets and I was able to play MOBA (massive online battle arena) types of games such as the most popular Mobile Legends, Heroes Evolved, and I was able to play even some role playing games like Lineage and many more.
One of the latest games that I’ve seen that has a huge improvement in terms of graphics are the first-person shooting games, racing games, and role playing games. I also want to add the latest NBA 2k18 in smartphone and tablet that indeed had a huge makeover in terms of graphics and the crowd itself. I guess the era of gaming consoles are not that great compared to what we have right now as many hard core gamers opt to build a custom gaming rig because they can customize the system on their needs and depending on their budget, while users who have tight budget choose to buy a decent android phone to play.
I would like to hear your thoughts about this particular topic if what do you personally prefer, whether gaming consoles, mobile devices, or custom build desktop system? be sure to comment down below and happy gaming.
