    Gaming on an Android Tablet

    I tried playing games on an Android tablet. It was awful without a real d-pad. How do you do it?

    By the way I hate gaming nowadays, the controls and first party controls are awful, online transactions are a scam and online gaming culture is abysmal, the consoles have to be set up upon buying them (often in foreign text) and will not even boot from disc unless you tell them to and then the games have sixty menus before they start. Its all annoying as hell.

    Another thing and we can blame tech nerds for this. Everything is about gadgets not the games. Look at how consoles are marketed with irrelevant things like hard drives, HDMI and wireless controls. Once I went into an esports bar because I knew the owner. Besides my not liking bars it was full only of people Americans call hipsters, the experience could not have been more alien. Between tech nerds and online gamers the gaming culture is shit.

    But seriously, other than games using simple interactions, such as chess, mahjongg, lines (and the type), etc., everything else sucks. Driving simulations/racing games on the phone are special kind of stupid.

    Looking at gamepads the issue of installation sounds too complicated and the pads are sold by gimmicks. Even though my computer skills are advanced compared to the average computer user, the instructions look gobbledygook. The only one that might be straightforward is using a 360 controller with some add on so it plugs in the charger. So what? The 360 pad is useless for real games it was made only for murder simulators.

    You could alternatively use a keyboard. It's no pad, but it's still better than relying solely on touch screen.

    Keyboard gaming is annoying.

    If I get a Vita can I use the internet on it?
