    I think very old touchscreen smartphones like some Blackberry touchscreen phones maybe the worst gaming devices because they were not designed for gaming, and most touchscreen games like Angry birds will not run on very old and slow touchscreen phones because of software and hardware compatibility problems.

    Touchscreen games were not very good in the past, and playing games on a flip phone was more enoyable because most flip phones have directional buttons for navigating the menus and gaming by playing games like Snakes and Tetris.

    Depends on the type of game.
    A platform game with jump/run/left/right/etc. buttons on-screen is very unsuitable on a device with only a touch screen, yet games like that tend to get released regularly, even from big name companies.
    Likewise, I wouldn't imagine playing games like Angry/Flappy Bird(s) and Super Mario Run on a flip phone unless it has a touch screen.

    Angry Birds would be self explanatory.
    While Flappy Bird and Super Mario Run can be played on a touch-less phone, remember that pressing a physical phone button requires more pressure than a touch screen, making this type of games easier to play on a touch screen.

    I only play Taiko no Tatsujin on a mobile phone, but that's just because of my love for rhythm games (and the series).

    I think if if it was possible to type in the Angle, and amount of force to use to pull the slingshot in Angry Birds, Angry Birds maybe playable on a Non-touchscreen phone. Using a mouse cursor program for non-touchscreen phones where you can hold the left click button while you change the angle, and force of the slingshot may work as well. Most older flip phones had directional buttons, and a center enter button which can be used as a virtual mouse.

    I agree Flappy Birds, and Super Mario Run may not be easy to play on phones with only physical buttons unless the buttons need very little force to press down, or you press the button a little bit earlier, so you press the button on time before you jump.

    Really, I don't think that playing games on any device with a touchscreen is that great because you are blocking the view of the screen with your fingers and you can't see what going on.

    I agree, depends on the type of game. If you need a touch screen than a non-touch screen will be useless.

    Some touch games like Angry Birds work okay a mouse in my experience. Android does work with PC mouses, and some people prefer playibg Angry Birds with a mouse since it is more accurate.

    I do not remember the name, but it was supposed to be similar to the Path of Exile. I bought it, played it more like a Mario bros, after that it was not possible to play it normally. I did not go through the first level because I switched off. As if someone remembered the name, please write it here, I do not recommend it. With PoE it had nothing to do with it. On the quiet street, on the sidewalks silent, I want to abyss orbs and there is no Miłosz. generally it is not something that I am very proud of, but I am a bit. I've been playing Path of Exile since I was a kid and I think it's a great thing, especially the orb. Each of my orb is close to me and I like it very much.
    Buy Path of Exile Orbs | PoE Exalted Orb Shop and Currency Trade - Odealo
    I like the most when I buy exalted orb, but the appetite grows as I eat. That's why I'm buying more and more to have a lot of exalted orbs. everyone is exalted for the weight of gold, it is almost of gold. I always buy quickly when they are cheap.

    The new Nokia 3310 released in 2017 has a few cool games like snakes and Asphalt 6.

    I think the new 2017 Nokia 3310 is most likely one of the worst 2017 cell phone with a color screen for gaming.

    Back when I was a kid, my Nokia 3310 had a far smaller screen, and I could play snake on it perfectly fine.
    So don't complain!

    Reading glasses can help with looking at a smaller screen. The buttons can be better than touchscreen buttons which are slippery and have no physical button feedback like a real button.

    After a few hours of gaming, playing games on a smaller phone keypad can be playable. I bet, there is a way to mod this phone to use a bigger controller, or install a bigger keypad.

    I think it depends on the type of game we play and how suited it is to the device type.

    II agree, it depends on the device and game type,

    But, there are cheaper low quality smartphones with a short battery life, unresponsive touchscreen, screen with low quality color and low resolutions, low storage and slow CPU, slow GPU and less RAM which make playing mobile games not enjoyable or almost impossible for most games which should run on the mobile OS on a cheap phone, but the game does not run because the phone has low quality parts, and has slower speeds.

    I think that's the problem with the older phones, cause even low end phones from the last two years have a decent touch screen and innards.

    I agree many low end phones these days have decent touchscreens, and innards. But, many older phones are no longer good for playing modern games.

    Most low end phones also come with more storage space these days, so it is possible to install 10 or more games instead of just 3 big mobile games on older phones with 4GB of storage space.
