Default [GAMES] Nexus 7 Gaming Thread

Figured since some of us already have their N7's and most will be receiving their toys in the next week, we can start discussing gaming!

Holding the tablet itself, i can tell this is going to be a comfortable gaming experience, i think the bezels are just right and the weight is great for extended holding periods.

What games are you planning on trying out first?

What are some games that you want to recommend?

What are some games that you are looking forward to?

We can also discuss game compatibility, game controller solutions (wireless and wired), and other

I know the first game that I will be installing and playing is Dead Trigger. It's got zombies and stuff... 'nuff said.

I came close to finishing it but restarted the game after I found a cheat for it. Now that I have unlimited money, it isn't as fun anymore. It didn't take long to get near the end.

I want FF3 so bad but can't justify the price.. yet! haha

I'm going to install 4 games first, in this order... GTA 3, Max Payne, Dead Trigger, and The Amazing Spiderman!

Horn, the game that was unveiled at the I/O looked so cool, really looking forward to that!

The very first thing i wanted to do when I got home with my Nexus 7 was download and play NOVA 3, and of course it crashes every time at startup. So disappointed. Knowing Gameloft it will be months before they make it Tegra 3 compatible.

GTA runs great compared to on my Gnex. Max Payne took awhile to download but runs great!

I want to test out a PSX emulator and an N64 emulator sometime tomorrow!
