So it all sound good as far as Android gaming on big screen goes, well, that’s until you realized touch-based games are never meant to be played with traditional controllers, and that’s not to mention the limited titles a dedicated Android game console has to offer, and casting only result in you looking at your smartphone or tablet instead of the TV cos’ you can’t see where you’re touching.
