    I very rarely play games on my mobile. I mean, I have 4 mobile games right now, Miitomo, which I don't use anymore, Pokemon GO, which I only play while walking (obviously), Fire Emblem Heroes, but I'm only really trying to get Lucina, and Magikarp Jump, which is really fun, but meh.

    The thing is, mobile games can't hold my interest. I mean, I can get addicted really fast, but after a few days the hype dies and then I don't play it for weeks until I remember it exists and pick it up again.

    Never. I don't really see the appeal of it, would rather be on my PS4.

    A lot. I'm currently addicted to Tsukipara, was addicted (or still... just that I want to 100% complete each route and I left my "cheatsheet" (or a list of my previous choices, lol) at my dorm) to Mystic messenger, and will forever be addicted to card games (usually solitaire). I'm playing whenever I have an idle time, like during travel, during class (LOL), while waiting for something, while in line during enrollment, and such.

    I recently got a new phone and I haven't put any games on it since I got it. So, I haven't really been playing a lot since I got my new phone. I did spend some time playing mobile games before I got my new phone, like when I had to wait in line somewhere or when I had a few minutes on my lunch break that I wanted to kill.

    I play them a few times a day when I'm bored. Mobile games are a convenient way to kill time, and it lets me play classic console games which got ported to Android, or with an Android emulator.

    I play mobile games the most. I always have my phone with me. I play them when I'm bored. Mainly I play a game on my phone when I'm trying to sleep or on my break at work. It is a lot easier to just pull out my phone than to find a disk and pop it in my x box.

    I agree, one of the benefits of mobile gaming is that a phone or tablet is usually always near the user, and it is convenient to play during short breaks of 10 minutes or more. Plus, you can install a lot of games on most affordably price smartphones which now has 32GB of storage, and the option to install a MicroSD card of 128GB or more, or you can root your Android phone, and use a USB flash drive to store and run games.

    Almost never, I'm really not into the mobile-gaming scene. Maybe if I'm waiting for the bus of I'm bored somewhere without a PC, I'll give a try to some of them but I don't really have much enjoyment with them. Maybe I'm too picky,

    I play Words with Friends the most right now. I tried to get into Fire Emblem Heroes but it just got too repetitive for me. I probably should give Mario Run another try. I didn't play it enough to come up with a good evaluation. Overall I'm just not into mobile gaming because of all the potential money you could spend on items.

    I hardly ever play games on my phone. It's a shame too, because I'd really like to now that I think about it. I really don't play with my phone as much lately as a used to years ago. I switched to IPhone and honestly... I think that may be why I'm not on my phone as much. Just a preference thing obviously, but I honestly believe I'd be more active on my phone if I had one I enjoyed using. I'd love to try and get one of those phone controllers and maybe get GTA III for my phone or somethin'.

    For me, it largely depends on my schedule. If I have a ton of free time or if I'm maybe stuck somewhere waiting and have nothing else to do then I do turn on my phone and play some games. I would say that mobile games are mainly sort of like a ''time filler'' for me. I don't look at them as proper games where I would dedicate them a huge amount of time. I just much prefer consoles and computer.

    The games that I do occasionally play on my phone are: Super Mario Run, Pokemon GO (yes, mock away), Angry Birds 2.

    I also used to play Hearthstone on my phone but that was when it first came out - I uninstalled it because it required too much space.

    Every day actually. But that's because right now I'm addicted to FIFA Mobile. It's a lot better than the actual FIFA titles on the console and PC because its a lot easier to get good cards. A lot more fun without having to spend money on in game transactions

    Right now, I'm playing weekly. The only game I have is Plaque Inc. I was addicted to it so there were times when I played on my mobile daily, for a couple of hours. Plague Inc. is a pretty great and addictive game, but after playing almost every scenario I got bored.

    Every single day! I find myself waiting for an opportunity to play. If I have to ride the bus or sit for an extended period of time I get so excited because I know I'll be able to play my games in peace. When I get to work and I get home, of course there are so many things to do and I don't wanna play on my lunch break or regular breaks because I'll have to go back to work during a crucial time in the game and it'll upset me so I'd rather just wait until I have a least a free hour or more to focus on what I'm going. I play a variety of games but I don't game hop. I play one until I'm satisfied and then I'll move on to the next.

    Yeah I was just saying then in another thread, I don't play as many mobile games these days as I used to. That's mainly because they are such a time suck! Honestly, it's like going into a time warp playing some of them where they are soo addictive! I can be playing a game and bam! 5 hours have passed in about 5 minutes if that makes sense to anyone here? lol.. I still check the Appstore from time to time though to see if there's any new games out that look like they might be worth a quick play. Some are still quite basic but every now and then a better, bigger game will come out and I'll play it. But generally, I don't play that many mobile games these days as I find it quite counter-productive and have lots of work to do which I don't do if I do lol..

    I think I've outgrown mobile games. As a kid it blew my mind: space impact, snake, memory game, etc; but now, I prefer to simply listen to music while I'm outside with my phone. Also, the battery life of phones have decreased as technology went forward. How ironic is that? Shouldn't we be able to enjoy longer battery life with newer phones, instead of being the reverse? Also it seems like the phones are more fragile. Buttons gets smashed easier, phones break after dropping. It's not as fun anymore as when I was a kid.

    I heard all the rave of Pokemon GO but I never got into the trend. Mostly it's because I don't like the idea of walking into unknown neighborhoods or parts of the city just to capture Pokemon. In the news I heard thieves and snatchers targeted these so called Pokemon GO players since they are usually alone or in small groups, they keep looking at their phones so they don't know they are being followed, and of course they have a pretty decent and pricey phone since not just any flip phone can download apps and connect to the internet for the game.

    I heard stories like that, but I live in such a small town that I've never been worried about it. It'd be different if I vacationed in New York or another big city. Of course, if I was unfamiliar with the location, I wouldn't be playing at all and focusing on other things.

    Generally I don't like playing games on my mobile but I keep a couple for just in case if I have to wait at somewhere and I need to kill some time. So it doesn't happen often.
