How To Play Pc Games On Android Smartphone

Most of the android phone can run PSX games via PlayStation 1 emulator. But when it’s come to PC games I think there is no emulator which can run the PC game directly on your android device. There is one emulator called DOSBox Turbo which can play PC games on android. but it can only run old x86 games like Doom, Fallout 1 Duke nuke 1 and Elder Scrolls 1 and 2. Why we can’t play new high graphic PC games like GTA4, Dirt 3, Assassin creed and many popular games.

There is only one reason behind it that PC games are too heavy for android phones processor and GPU. Only one thing we can do is waiting for the developers to convert PC games in android platforms like they have done with max Payne, Resident evil 4, Street Fighter IV, GTA VC and GTA 3. Or wait for Heavier processor, Ram and GPU android phones which will be enough powerful to run PC OS and PC games.

As we can’t install PC operating system on the android phone directly. Although People have successfully installed windows 95, 98 and XP on android via Bochs or QEMU But it's unstable and slow. So the sad truth is we can't play latest PC games on android directly. But when the game becomes old and new phone has the power to run the game. Developer optimizes the game and port to mobile. We all know it takes too many years and not all games are portable to android or iOS.

The only way to stream really demanding games (like borderlands 2 or BioShock infinite) is nvidia shield, and even then you need an nvidia computer and the console itself is $250.

Hey guys, here is some tips to stream your pc display on ur android phone using splashtop. 1st thing u should have dual core android phone + minimum 768 mb of ram. 2nd thing connect your phone to wifi. 3g is not as stable as wifi. 3rd thing your router/modem must have wifi N and above (google wifi N for more info). 4th thing ur pc should be wirely connected to the router so here we kill each millisecond of lag. And for games use splashtop Gamepad thd. This way you will be able to notice better performance up to 90%. So there's no need for the crappy Nvidia shield. Sorry for my english im Tunisian

I'm having some lag and a few drops on my 925 paired with an alienware m17x however they appear to be because of some wlan speed issue following on the alienware screen the diversion runs fine.I wasn't lucky with steam games however,the server application doesn't see them whatsoever.Possibly with future updates it will show signs of improvement :-)Very guaranteeing however.

Emulating old PC games isn't as simple as console games.Each game works in an unexpected way, and the changing system necessities mean a few games won't not play so pleasantly on your Android.Essentially,your mileage may differ.What's more,this is difficult to let you know how to play the exact game you want.
