The Future of Gaming is Here

With 2020 in the dust, there’s a whole new year ahead of us. This year is packed with even more ways for you to battle boredom, especially if you have a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. The best feature about playing games on your smart device is that they’re conveniently portable, and they can go anywhere. You don’t need to worry about a bulky console anchoring you to one spot in your home, so you’re free to go outside and explore the world even while you’re gaming.

Have you ever been curious about mobile games? Now would be a terrific time to try out the latest gaming apps to keep yourself occupied. Your smart device and a wireless connection to directly download games from the Google Play Store for Android devices or the App Store for iOS devices are all you need. Many are free to download, while some have a trial period or charge a nominal one-time fee before installation. If you don’t know which mobile games you’d like to try, that’s no problem since your options are endless. 

There’s something for everyone. Whether you want to speed around in exotic luxury cars, play casino games in high-end hotels, fight alongside whimsical dragons, solve riddles to escape dangerous rooms, grow virtual veggies, get into fistfights with superheroes, or just hunt down zombies. Our expert here, Samuel Richardson, shared his insights on the topic as we compiled this list.
