The rise of the mobile gaming industryAccording to the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), the number of mobile gamers in India alone will reach 368 million. Outside the massive number of people playing mobile games is the fact that MLBB is among the few eSports chosen to be played as a medal event during the 2019 South East Asian Games which was held in the Philippines. Gone are times when mobile games were considered very simplistic, offline, and easy to play. With the growth of technology, mobile devices have become very fast and robust and so are mobile games. The gaming industry has seen a lot of modern innovations over the years. Mobile games eventually branched out to include various genres of games such as FPS, MOBA, adventure, battle-royale, etc. Developments in graphics and technology are on a constant roll. This industry covers a lot of different fields, from online games to the gaming console evolution. Even recently added Bitcoin casino games are also affected by this growth in technology. The graphics of game like Call of Duty: Mobile, League of Legends: Wild Rift, etc. will make you realize that the strategy required to play mobile games is not as easy as most of the PC gamers considers.
Graphics in Mobile games as compared to PC and Console gamesThere are people who come with a comparison that the graphic of PC and console games are far more superior to mobile games. That is true to a large extent. When we closely look at the graphic quality of general mobile games, we do observe the difference in user experience. But we also have to understand that the use of smartphones has their own pros and cons and developers try their best to minimize the glitches as far as possible. As people around the globe especially South Asian countries are having access to top-notch smartphones under budget, it is expected that the developers will be able to bridge this gap.
Superiority ComplexWhile the reasons mentioned above are completely justified, we do have to take into consideration that not everyone dislikes mobile games due to any particularly sensible reason. Some people simply hate mobile games because they feel that their choice of platform is “the best of all platforms”. It is quite common for PC and consoles users on social media to straight-up use derogatory terms against the mobile gaming community for their choice of platform. Some do not even consider mobile gaming as actual gaming. This is generally due to the typical toxic nature of some people. Their opinions do not actually reflect the whole of the PC and the console gaming community.
ConclusionIt is true that earlier mobile games were easy to play and best suited for low-end mobile phones but with the evolution of technology, almost all the PC Games are now being re-launched on smartphones. Just like you can’t compare apple with oranges but you need to understand that both are fruits, both mobile and PC gamers are also gamers with a difference in user experience. The gaming companies are even using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in order to make the games as interesting as possible on smartphones.
