I’ve been playing games for years, since I was five or six and my father came home with a NES, which may also be an indicator to my age and rapid advance towards the grave, as I grew older we ended up with more consoles in the house each bringing with it numerous hours of joy, frustration, gamepad throwing rage and the plethora of other emotions we associate with gaming.These days however I’m more involved with the dev side of things, not to say I don’t game, several level 90 Warcraft characters attest to that but being a functioning, mature adult I find it increasingly more difficult to justify spending a whole weekend sat in a dark room powering through every Sonic game .
So you can imagine my delight when I managed to get my some decent emulation software installed on my tablet, no longer was it a glorified diary/reddit delivery device, now it was a magical seven inch gateway to my childhood and a golden opportunity to pick up on some games I’d missed, finish games I’d never managed to previously and scare fellow bus passengers by occasionally screaming obscenities at an electronic device.
So I’ve decided to put together my “Top 5” games that I’ve been playing. It’s worth noting that these are not Android releases nor are they HD remixes these, these aren’t my favourite games ever, they however the five that I’ve found to be the best on the tablet.
It’s also worth noting that I use a seven inch tablet with a Bluetooth gamepad hooked up to it so these may not play as well on a smartphone or whatnot.
