    Considering this is meant for tablets, we've come a long ways from the 386 days, that's for sure. I am very surprised there aren't any decent RPGs for tablets or even a dumbed down version of WoW or some other MMO. You'd think they would be able to run on tablets with the graphics on really low, an alternate means for those addicts on the go... Reply

    Gameloft has Order & Chaos which is a WoW clone. Reply

    Theres also Pocket Legends.

    And Shadowgun isn't another Tegra 2 only game is it? The article dont say but makes it sound this way.

    It does not soud like it is a Tegra 2 only game. It says that it will come to Tegra Zone AND Android Market. Reply

    I'd think it would be great to have games like Ultima series, or X-com series, Zelda, or Civ. Something where the small form factor and weird touch controls will not really adversely affect the game. It seems to me that most phone games now require 0 brain cells to run, and while some FPS's are good, it would be nice to see something other than angry birds/minecraft/retarded looking kindergarten stuff.

    Most of the games you have listed can be played via Emulators or have Clones.
    I have a N64, Amiga, Sega Mega Drive, PSX, Atari VCS, ZX Spectrum, Game Boy Advanced, SNES, MAME & PC Dos emulators running on my Xperia Play.

    Seeing your GLBenchmark 2.1 results show the iPad 2's SGX543MP2 to be 4 times faster than the Tegra 2, I'm wondering if it'll be possible to do a visual comparison between the Galaxy Tab and iPad 2 versions once the Android version is released to see what type graphics differences there are.

    In my time with my modded Nook, I've found that controls need to be kept very simple with touch screens. Too many buttons and it becomes horribly frustrating. Trying to mouselook with your finger is a pain too if fast paced action is involved.

    That doesn't necessarily mean simple games though as I have played Master of Orion through Dosbox and it worked very well. 2D top downs and sidescrollers are fine too.
