    "This is a Rogue-like shooter game, but with a pretty interesting twist in that it takes place in the context of a Biblical story. Isaac hears he is to be sacrificed, and the game involves him trying to avoid this. The game has so much content, it's difficult to imagine getting bored. The integrated controller support works great. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Dubbed to be one of the pioneers of game consoles in the world, Xbox, owned by Microsoft, has truly captured the hearts of gamers since its inception in 2001. Yet, much as it deserves a lot of praises due to its exceptional functionality, it also had its fair share of flaks. In fact, did you know that in May of 2007, a lot of Xbox 360 game consoles were defective? As a result, Microsoft spent $1 billion to repair and/or replace defective ones absolutely for free! According to Robbie Bach, former Xbox head, it was one of biggest decisions he made in his 22-year stay at Microsoft. The huge defect is called "Red Ring of Death." It was called such because the system would display a 'ring of three red lights' around the on and off button. But what really is it about? Well, it sounds too technical but basically it was s a massive issue on the hardware that caused the console to just stop working.

In all fairness to game console companies, they have stepped up their game in terms of specs, functionality, and display. If you are planning to get a game console, consider the game titles you will be able to play. For instance, latest titles like Resident Evil 2 and Mortal Kombat 11 are both available for Xbox One and PS4. Yet, best adventure games for PS4 like Horizon Zero Dawn and many more are readily available for adventure seekers. Or, if you are a solid iPhone user and you want to channel your love for console games through your smartphone, best iOS games with controller support are ready for download. And if you want a larger screen display, you may opt to try some of the best iPad games with controller, instead. To make it even more interesting and enjoyable, why not play some PS4 family games with your beloved fam?

    "Oceanhorn is a fun game. I could play it for hours but it requires a lot of attention so you need some time alone. When I am on break is a good time to start. It's an Action RPG more than a standard RPG."

    "Playing a game on a screen that's smaller than your controller is a little weird, but I must confess I thought the gameplay was pretty stellar. There was no lag on my controls and it was super easy to use."

    "This is a great game and a wonderful adaption to the Android platform. But, the controls are horrid and irritate me to no end. The play experience is much better on a dedicated game machine or anything else where you can use an actual controller. "

    "GTA Vice City is an amazing game! I spent countless hours completing missions with Tommy Vercetti for different gangs back in old days. I must admit, all games in GTA series have never disappointed me. This is easily one of my favorite series. Now, going back to ios games, I have never played it on iPhone because why would you want to have a partial experience when you can play it on PC and have full experience? It doesn't mean that a mobile version is bad. It's just it wasn't designed for a mobile and it's much better on PC. "
