Everything mobile is the new trend in society. With the growth of mobile technology in recent years, we have turned a simple cord phone into a pocket computer. Console games are at the roots of being a “gamer.” Recently console games have evolved, and you can even play them on your mobile device (phone or tablet). If you have an Android or iOS device, you can browse either of the stores (Google Play or the App Store) and find your favorite console titles in mobile format. There are some new console games developed explicitly for mobile devices, but most of them are re-releases of old popular console games, and they are a hit among customers. In this article, we will see which are the best console games you can play on a phone or a tablet.
