Posted Aug 13, 2012 at 9:24 pm in Threads > Games

Are you ready to play? Today we are kicking off a new focus on mobile gaming. Over the next two weeks we will cover the best devices for gaming, pick the best Android games in each category, compare multiple controllers, review cloud gaming services, and more.

All our gaming related content will be featured in a new channel found at We have not linked up the page anywhere on the site yet (and it doesn’t work on mobile), but you can preview it as we flesh out all the content.

To help get the Gaming channel going, we are going to give away a 16GB Nexus 7 tablet to people who create a thread about gaming. We have long promised that we will feature user generated content on our front page, and this is your opportunity to have something you create shared with thousands of Android fans.

1. Create a new gaming related thread and make sure it appears in category Gaming
2. Quality threads will be promoted to the /gaming channel and be entered to win
3. Contest will run for 2 weeks and we will announce the winner on Monday, August 27th.

Example threads include:

  • Review your favorite Android game: Submit a 500 word review of any Android game that you would recommend to others. Format should include a list of good points, not-so-good points, and final words. Give the game a score of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.
  • Create your own Top 10 list for a games category: Pick the best 10 games in any category. Include a link to the Play Store and a short description of why someone should install the game. List topics could include Top 10 Sports Games, Top-down shooter, Zombie, 3D RPG, etc. Example: Top 10 First Person Shooter Games
  • Review any gaming accessory or service: Have a favorite controller you enjoy playing with? Let know the good and the bad with a review. Example – Sony SmartWatch Review
  • Preview some upcoming games: Spot a cool new game that we haven’t reported on yet? Write a detailed preview of the game and tell us why you want to play it. Example – “Top 5 most-wanted Android games”
  • Write a how-to guide: Example – How I use my PS3 controller to play emulator games.
  • Any topic related to mobile gaming: Are you sick of freemium games? Have a feature request for all developers (like cloud saving)?
