I ask because after my phone service stopped allowing people to use WiFi hotspots and USB Tethering (allows you to connect other devices to the net through your phonesuch as laptops) I am now forced to spend more time on my phone than I'd like, time I would prefer spending on the computer. In any case I have downloaded several games from Google Play, such as Clash of Clans, Plants v.s. Zombies, and the more simple solitaire. This games aren't bad and can keep you occupied, but I still have a few problems with phone games: 1) They are fun, some of them surprisingly advanced past what you think smartphones can do, yet I still can't shake the feeling that they're nothing more than cheaply made "arcade class" games. For example I liked the first Plants v.s. Zombies, which I played on my laptop, however the second one which was made more for phones than PC'S seems much more cheap and arcade/platform style, and seems to be designed more to take your money than to entertain/be a good game in general. 2) Again, these games seem to be more focused on getting you to spend your money on in-game products than they are on being a good game. Some games, especially the multiplayer ones, seem like you can't survive without eventually spending cash in their stores. So the topic isn't on any of the games I mentioned, but rather smartphone games in general. What's your opinion? Money hungry pieces of crap, or is the smartphone a new gaming platform with potential.
