We don't hate the iPad, we just love the Galaxy!

Samsung Galaxy Tab Games

One of the primary reasons that people buy a product like the Samsung Galaxy Tab is to play games. After all the larger screen serves no real useful purpose unless you are using to do things like play games or watch movies. Otherwise you would do just as well with the smaller screen on a smart phone. Of course in order to take advantage of the larger screen to play games there have to be games available. This is where the Galaxy Tab currently comes up short. Over time this will change, as more Galaxy Tabs get sold there will be more games created for it. However for right now the options are fairly limited.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has a lot of gamers very excited since it would seem to be the ideal platform for playing games. With a seven inch screen on a device that can be easily carried around the potential is outstanding. Unfortunately for now it remains mostly potential. At the current time the number of games that are available for the Galaxy Tab is fairly limited. Almost certainly as it becomes more popular there will be more games that become available. When this happens the Galaxy Tab will likely reach its potential as a gaming device.

The biggest issue with getting games for the Samsung Galaxy Tab is that they need to be optimized for use on the larger screen. However until there are enough people using the Galaxy Tab there is little incentive for the game makers to invest the resources that are required to optimize the game. It is a bit of a chicken and the egg thing. Until there are more users the number of games will be limited. However the number of people who choose the Galaxy Tab will likely remain small until more games are made available. Over time this issue will be solved but for now it does limit your options when it comes to games.

There are a few games available that have been optimized for the Samsung Galaxy Tab but figuring out which ones they are can be a challenge. Unfortunately the games that are intended for the Android operating system are all listed together. That means the only way that you can now if the game has been optimized for the larger screen is to download it and see what happens. Right now the best way to find games that are optimized for the Galaxy Tab is to actually search for the terms games and Galaxy Tab, or check out specialized mobile gaming networks.

At some point if the Samsung Galaxy Tab becomes popular enough there will likely be a number of games designed exclusively for it. When this happens the Galaxy Tab will have started to reach its potential as a gaming platform. Once this happens you will likely find that there will be a large number of games available. For now however people are going to have to be patient.
