Most games now are free or freemium (which means you have to pay if you want things to move faster), but the majority of them don't require you to spend your cash. If you've got a Kindle there's Amazon Underground which gives you all of the game at once for free. Yes, Kindle has games (because books aren't enough for kids today). Books were enough for enough for me, but since the games are there I figured I might as well play some. I got Star Wars KotOR for free! It took up too much room to keep on my Kindle forever, but it was fun to play again whenever and wherever I wanted. I just have too many movies and other crap to waste space on a such a big game. I know this makes me sound like I don't use my Kindle for books, but since the other things are there I might as well use them. Many of the games, like Goat Simulator, I screwed around with for a few minutes and immediately deleted. I mean the idea of a goat simulation game sounds genius, but the mechanics sucked and the game itself was repetitive. If you've ever played Jaws Unleashed console game you'll know what I'm getting at.
I do have a couple of freemium games on my phone, but I've only ever put money into one of them (more on that later). Mostly I like playing on my Kindle because the screen is so much bigger than my phone. Plus, since my Kindle is wi-fi only I don't run the risk of over using my limited data. I travel for work so I gotta save those GBs for driving through the hinterlands of Alabama.
