The time has evolved far beyond the likes of Snake, Chess, bounce, and Space Defence. Smartphones have rightly embraced far more enticing games like Asphalt and Angry Birds. Such games have fueled up the expectations to an altogether new level. But the crucial pitfall is hanging on to a game that can stay on your device for long. Running from pole to pole or shooting indiscriminately will take a toll on your interest sooner than later.

The addition of powerful processors, more RAM and plenty of controllers for players to use are perfect ingredients to exploit your favourite games. Most of these offer almost neck-to-neck adventure that a game on PC offers.
Here, I have come up with a list of top 10 PC games that will keep you going for hours and the best part is, you have the ease to play these games on your smartphone:
1. GTA series
The name GTA sounds familiar to many of us. It made its debut in 1997 and since then, it has created constant ripples with every new series launch. The three Grand Theft Auto games — GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas are available on your smartphone. The gaming experience hardly differs from that of PC and takes you to the old crime-centric world.
The touchscreen controls do hinder the fun, but it can be negotiated by optional Bluetooth and even USB controllers on modern Android devices. In particular, helicopter mission will turn out to be a huge pain for the touchscreen controls. Overall, the graphics are marvellous. If you want to taste the same old classic flavour, lay your hands on this game ASAP.
2. XCOM Enemy Within
XCOM is another mind-blowing offering. Unlike going after aliens in the XCOM Enemy Unknown, Enemy Within lets you boss a team of your choice. The ultimate motive of your team is to kill the alien invader and take care of the rogue transhumans. This game is pure recreation with its exciting storyline and cinematic directions. After getting pat on its back, the developer is trying to make it available across many other platforms.
3. Half-Life 2
This game has fought well to get featured in the top PC games of all time. Half-Life 2 is all about elimination of aliens from a post-apocalyptic Eastern Europe-style environment. After clearing every mission, the player has to take up more responsibility in clearing the scare of aliens.
Apart from smartphones, this Half-Life 2 is available for all the Nvidia Shield devices. Sadly, Android devices packed with Tegra chips can only withhold this game.

4. Final Fantasy VII
This twenty-year-old Japanese role-playing game impacted the western world to a great extent. Final Fantasy was initially offered on the original PlayStation.

This game run flawlessly on the iOS and Android devices with the support of controllers and sports built-in cheats for PC like experience. Though the there can be issues with the controls sometimes.
5. Tomb Raider 1
The one name that strikes me when I go through Tomb Raider is Angelina Jolie. She has virtually become the face of this game. And if such action-packed games are accredited by some spice, it will only help them to get a better push. Lara Croft is the leading character of Tomb Raider, based on British model Nell McAndrew in the original game.
However, this PC game is still known for its stunning graphics and action-packed missions. The developers have finally brought this incredible game to the smartphone, but that is going to cost you some bucks. Who will mind shelling out few bucks for such gaming experience? Like many other games, Tomb Raider also suffers from the not so effective touchscreen commands.
6. The Wolf Among Us
The Wolf Among Us is one of the fantastic adventure game available for your smartphone. It is developed by the same company who crafted “The Walking Dead,” which is much acclaimed episodic, graphic adventure game series. The game involves different chapters where the player has to take on vital decisions to move to the next stage. The Wolf Among Us offers very intense and violent atmosphere for the gamer and always keeps you on your toes for the next move. The bright spot over here is, even after involving so much of drama, it is very comprehensive. The game plays well on most of the smartphones.

This game is a 1994 fighting game released as the second entry in SNK's Samurai Shodown series.

Following the appeal of the primary game, its continuation brings the characters, world, and amusement framework to the following level. Sadly, Samurai Shodown is not free for the users.
9. Doom 3: BFG Edition
