Android TV in his day he did not have exactly the best of beginnings. Despite the popularity of Android, and even taking into account that its adaptation to television has been much better on a functional level than that of other bets such as Android Wear, the truth is that Google's television platform is costing to take off.
One of the main culprits is the Chromecast, a device that for a much lower price than a device with Android TV more than complies with all multimedia functions thanks to the connection with our smartphone. If for 39 euros it is possible to buy a device that turns any television into a smart device, who is going to consider buying a Smart TV at first?
13 reasons why buying a Chromecast is the best leisure investment you can make
With the amount of multimedia content we consume from our Androids, it is worth buying a chromecast. These are thirteen reasons
On television, the applications that make the most sense are multimedia and games, so if Android TV intends to gain market share Clearly, you need new video games to hit your platform. And that leads us to ask ourselves a question,what video games should reach Android TV to make it a more attractive platform? This is our list.
Nvidia Shield TV, analysis and user experience
The Nvidia Shield TV is a multimedia center with Android TV that serves as a multimedia player and console. In this analysis read our opinions.
We start with one of last year's big hits for consoles and PC. Rocket League is a game in which we control a car on a soccer field, where we have to score goals against the opposing team.
On paper it doesn't seem like a very attractive idea, but if we add very fun physics and a multiplayer mode in local It becomes a crazy game to play with other people in the room.
Best local multiplayer games for Android
Battling with your friends is fine, but the best is the face they get when they bite the dust. These are some games with local multiplayer for Android.
Super meat boy
After Rocket League, we moved to a lower budget platform game, but that could certainly reach Android TV without problems. Super Meat Boy is a platform game in which we will have to rescue our girl by going through the different levels.
What is special about Super Meat Boy to make it worthwhile on television and not on a smartphone? Well, it's about a game that is mechanically very demanding. It is a game for those who, in addition to wanting to spend some time, want to outdo themselves.
Hotline Miami (and its sequel)
And speaking of mechanically demanding games, I couldn't forget Hotline Miami. It is a game that behind its graphics and eighties setting hides an extremely violent game (not recommended for children).
The main plot revolves around a person who receives encrypted calls in which our protagonist is asked to go kill people. The game has a very interesting background that you will have to discover. If you are one of those who likes to release tension with the GTA, is a set of 10.
Destiny has been one of the most ambitious titles in the history of the video game, and the truth is that although it did not start with good sales, in the end it has reaped a good success. It is a science fiction shooter in which we move through various planets with other players.
This game is engaging, since we can go hunting with our friends through all kinds of levels designed as if they were a dungeon. If we consider that consoles like the Shield TV are much more powerful than the PS3, it doesn't seem like such a crazy idea either.
One of the most famous RPGs in recent years. Despite the fact that the Blizzard title did not meet the expectations of all players, the truth is that It turned out to be quite a fun title for those who enjoy RPGs with an isometric perspective where we improve our team by destroying hordes of enemies.
It is not a game that is precisely demanding on graphics, and although perhaps the maximum quality of the game may be too much for Android TV, the average quality levels should be able to work without problems.
Call of duty
Neither Counter Strike nor Overwatch, the shooting game that rules on consoles is none other than Call of Duty, and since Android TV is designed to be played with a controller, it is a great game when it comes to spending hours and hours in games on-line.
It is not the most original shooter, nor is it the most extensive, much less the one with the best graphics, but many would sign up to play something like Modern Warfare again on your Android TV.
Rayman Origins and Legends
Ubisoft is one of the most important (and underrated) companies in the world of video games, but beyond criticism they have games that are great, and have even made a good adaptation to mobile devices.
Rayman is one of those franchises that recently renewed and whose new titles are exclusively for mobiles such as Rayman Jungle Run, Rayman Fiesta Run and Rayman Adventures. They are good games, yes, but what if we compare them with Rayman Origins and Legends they are far behind.
Origins and Legends are two platform games that are dynamic and fun. The graphic section is beautiful, the soundtrack is amazing and if we add it to its cooperative mode you will have one of the most fun experiences possible.
Finally, we turn to construction simulators, another type of game that is usually played in the classroom. For years, Sim City has been a benchmark in this category, although in recent years Cities: Skylines has shown that this genre still has a lot of war to give. To be able to build your city and take it to your style, without the micropayment bullshit of the versions of mobile construction games.
