Two ways of playing video games

The traditional way of playing video games has been on a console designed for the purpose. However, since the mobile phone was introduced in 1992, it too has become a popular alternative, and you yourself might consider making the switch. There are several reasons for this. One is that a mobile phone can be carried anywhere and is easy to hold in the hand, whereas a console is permanently attached to the desktop PC with which it is meant to be used. Not only can you play your games in any room in the house, but you can go anywhere outside your house as well — provided, of course, that you are in an area that has wifi access. Besides, a mobile phone is much lighter than a console and takes up less space, so you don’t have to contend with all that ugly wiring. Mobile is therefore the logical choice for playing a video game when you want to do so “on the go” and your console is not available. If there was ever a competitor for console gaming, it is mobile gaming.

Organization is another factor that makes mobile gaming superior to console gaming — or at least, that is what one user claims; see http://caws.ws/forum/topic/459709-wwe-network-discussion-thread/page-26. Unfortunately, he does not explain why. Another player (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/710163-injustice-gods-among-us/69738968) said that he found the console version of the video game Injustice to be “insanely hard” compared to the mobile version thereof and much more difficult to master than most of the other fighter games that he has played. Still another blogger on the same page said that game in mobile form focuses more on “collection and strategy,” although due to its higher content it is more difficult to complete than it is in console version. In the end, whether the console or mobile version of a given game is superior depends on the game.
