Mobile Gaming: What You Can Expect in Late 2017 and Early 2018 () 04:19 AM EDT - Sep,02 2017
If you spend your work break playing a game on your phone or pass the time playing while you wait for an appointment, you can officially call yourself a mobile gamer. Over 50 percent of Americans play games on their phones at least once a month, and according to eMarketer, the popularity of mobile gaming isn’t expect to end any day soon.
Mobile gaming is not only a great way to pass the time, but it can help you unwind and sometimes it’s nice to stay out of office drama. Whether you play games on your phone a few times a month or every day, here’s what you can look forward to as 2017 wraps up, and 2018 begins.
Increased Mobile Responsiveness
There are fewer things more frustrating than being multiple levels deep into a mobile game only to have your phone crash or find out that the mobile website is glitchy. While most mobile games are played on an app, there are many worthwhile games to check out on mobile-first websites.
Having a website of any kind and not being responsive is beginning to be more and more of a big “no-no.” You can expect and continue to see that websites are finally taking responsiveness seriously and are getting on board with becoming more mobile-friendly.
Smartphones Will Keep Getting Better
While some people play mobile games on a tablet, a significant amount of mobile gamers play on their smartphones. Even though there are constant upgrades being made to iPhones and Androids, such as new and improved cameras, mobile gaming is a big consideration when it comes to making updates and improvements.
There will always be a great debate over what phone is better, an Android or iPhone, but whichever phone you choose, you’re likely to see new models with better battery life and bigger memory (both are essential to gaming).
What We Can Expect in Games
If you’ve been into gaming (whether mobile or on your console) for awhile, you know that some years there are some major hits and a few misses. Late 2017 and early 2018, however, looks promising in game releases.

For years, the element of surprise in a video game seemed to be solely reserved for gaming consoles and home computers. Realizing that all gamers love a good surprise (who can forget the secret mushrooms in Mario Bros?), more gaming companies will be incorporating “surprises” in their games.
You can also expect to revisit some old favorites, such as Runescape, The Sims, and The Legend of Zelda. The best part? Since these games will be available to play on your smartphone or tablet, you can play these while waiting in line at a concert or when you’re trying to avoid a conversation in the break room at work
