Is Apple TV the Best Option for Casual Gaming?

There’s no doubt about it, Apple TV is a great device for streaming your favorite shows or movies.

But when it comes to gaming, it can feel a bit limited.

Sure, there are some great games available for the system, but you don’t always have access to the latest and greatest, or even the same level of games you would if you were playing on a PC or console.

And with the 2021 Apple TV, it seems to throttle after a while when playing games.

So, if you don’t want to sit in front of a PC or console when playing the occasional game, what are your options?

Well, if you have an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) then you’re in luck. There are plenty of casual games available, and they’re incredibly easy to download and play.

The main problem with iOS games is that they tend to be a bit shallow and simplistic.

But, if that’s what you’re looking for, then Apple’s offering is great. If you want something a bit deeper, then you might want to think about signing up for Apple Arcade.

While most aren’t compatible with Apple TV, you can still enjoy many of the Apple Arcade games on your iOS device.

So, is Apple TV the best option for casual gaming?

It’s hard to say.

The system does have some great games, and if you’re looking for something easy and quick to play then you can definitely get something you’ll enjoy.

But if you want something a bit deeper and more engaging, then Apple Arcade offers a great selection of games that are perfect for some small casual gaming.

Pros:

  • Easy to download and play games on iOS devices
  • Good selection of games available with Apple Arcade
  • Apple TV offers some great games
  • Apple Arcade games are perfect for small casual gaming

Cons:

  • Limited selection of games on Apple TV
  • Apple TV can throttle after a while when playing games
  • iOS games tend to be shallow and simplistic

Human thoughts

It’s rubbish 😂

But was fun to play with, for the text I used the AI assistant provided by Craft docs, here is another example:

While for the images I used Stable Diffusion, but definitely I should spend more time on the prompt.

Finally, here is an AI Tweet:

Ahh no! After playing some games on the 2021 apple tv, it’s throttling? Not cool! I work on my pc so much that I don’t want to game on it, but my iOS devices are always on hand and easy to use with app arcade games for some casual gaming. #apple #appleTV #gaming #arcadegames
