You do realize how dumb this question is?
1. This has been discussed in other threads.
2. I never saw an android device that ran all the games in the play store.

It is a powerful device and can handle many games but certain games will not be compatible.

Most games are profiled via gpu type each has their own compressed texture type,
If textures don't uncompress they'll appear as white instead.

Adreno - ATITC
Tegra - DXT / S3TC
PowerVR - PVRTC

thankfully GLTools can uncompress between them all, it can also downscale higher res textures and screen res for an fps boost.

Some games are also blacklisted via device for instance Ridge Racer Slipstream works sideloaded on my Nexus 7 2013 but has slowdowns into corners when the drifting smoke effect is applied.

ASTC, EAC, ETC2 is supported by all opengles 3.0 compatible gpu.
ETC1 is supported by all opengles 2.0 compatible gpu.

Try to ignore rude people with bad tudes. This tablet has the "power" to play any game on the market, the only road blocks are certain games tailored for other chips. There are ways around each obsticle however. I am unaware of any games that do not have some way to be made to play on this tablet. The only "dumb" question is the one you dont ask.

I've had mine for three months now, and I have yet to find a game that doesn't run well... All the GTA's run, as well as Injustice Gods Among Us. And that minecraft game that is turning my children into the same type of zombie that the Atari 2600, and the NES did to me back in the day
