Apple iPad Apple touted the newly-released iPad as a "magical and revolutionary device." And much of that magic is applied towards the gaming side of the spectrum. There are countless games available for the iPad, top titles include XCOM: Enemy Unknown and The Walking Dead.
There's something about the display that makes any game look like it's running on a device custom made just for that particular title, making them look spectacular. The touch screen and accelerometer controls are impressively responsive, meaning less stress and more enjoyment. Apple's sleek device is an online gamer's paradise, with the quality of online casino games being pointed out as a key entertainment component.

Where else can you get split-screen multi player on a more or less handheld device? If there's one thing the iPad does better than any other device, it's allowing more than one player to interact with a game on a single unit. A game can be had on the same screen with four players at once, without needing four separate copies of the game or four different iPads. This is the iPad's shining gaming achievement.

The Nexus 5 is a monster in the performance stakes, and the display is equally vibrant and impressive. Gamers reap the benefits from the technological masterpiece, with online entertainment being displayed wonderfully.
