The changes in mobile gaming within the last five years

When was the last time you played a game on your phone? Five minutes ago, five seconds ago, are you in the process of playing now? Mobile gaming is fun and can be an excellent distraction and stress-reliever.

Sadly, mobile gaming also gets a bad reputation and negative reactions when articles reveal that people play Candy Crush on the toilet or 4 percent of mobile gaming takes place in the middle of the night.

Regardless of how mobile gaming is viewed, there’s one thing for certain: it’s come a long way in just five years.

Better Graphics and Mobile Responsiveness

Every year, mobile games get better (as do the phones we play them on). Whether you got into the whole Pokemon revival with Pokemon Go or playing poker or slots at any of the top online casinos, the graphics are better.

Another plus that a lot of gamers enjoy is the ability to play at home online and pick up where they left off when they are on the go with their phone.

Mobile Gaming is Generally Free

Years ago, a majority of mobile games cost money, some still do, but there are a lot of free apps out there. The nice thing about a free app is that it gives you the opportunity to play the game, see if you like it, and maybe buy it later if you want.

Expanding the Gamer Demographic

We all know the stereotype of the gamer. Mobile gaming has broken the stereotype as more women are getting interested in gaming. Even senior aged women are playing games on their phone while on the go; about 5% of Candy Crush players are women over the age of 50.

Online gaming continues to be accessible and fun for people of all ages; let’s see what the next five years brings.
