Introduction

Welp, after >8 years of personal Android usage, with the most recent 5 mostly spent on custom ROMs, here's my top 10 list of best native Android games I've ever played.

  1. Geen
  2. Nada
  3. Aucun
  4. Tidak ada
  5. Ingen
  6. Keine
  7. Nenhuma
  8. Κανένα
  9. Нет
  10. Nessuno
  11. Ok... Shattered Pixel Dungeon, maybe? Or is it Battleheart Legacy? OG Battleheart? GBWG? PUBG? FGO? Idunno... none of them's making the cut...

Hmmmm.... That's actually 10 random translations of the word none & that last one (which shouldn't have existed) had 6 titles at once but there's that "none of them's making the cut" line. What's wrong with the list? Simple. Mobile gaming (in this case, Android) sucks for many reasons, and a good chunk of them will be mentioned.

Technical-side issues

Here are some technical-side questions that I use to judge how good a game is.

With all of my questions out of the way, let's take the mentioned games & apply these questions to them, as well as explain why these games don't make the cut.

Case study : Battleheart

Case study : Battleheart Legacy

Case study : Fate/Grand Order (NA)

Personally, I would not play FGO NA (especially at this point) had I never knew it back in 2017. However, what kept me in the game was actually me liking it so much (in terms of characters, story, & gameplay).

Case study : Genshin Impact

One of the games that didn't even make the cut into my mentioned examples, yet one that I'm particularly wanting to rip for a while.

Case study : Great Big War Game

Case study : PUBG Mobile

Case study : Shattered Pixel Dungeon

Why mobile gaming sucks

Not sure what to put for now, so just a very rough & potentially incoherent list for now.

What about emulators?

Will be discussed in the future, because I'm still not sure what to add. For now, I'll keep this <h3> tag here.
