The author of the YouTube channel Mark Korolev, for the sake of experimentation, launched many popular computer games on a modern Android smartphone using emulators. In his latest videos you can see how titles such as Fallout 4, Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Payday, GTA IV and V work.
Experimental results vary depending on the game and its system requirements. For example, Fallout 4 shows poor performance and graphical errors on a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim runs more stable and sometimes shows results at 30 frames per second in 720p resolution.
Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag lacks smooth gameplay on a smartphone. At the same time, Payday shows good results and works without significant problems. GTA IV also runs at 30 FPS in some scenes, but for the most part the game runs at 10-15 FPS. GTA V ran at an average of 10 frames per second.
On his channel, an enthusiast tests an unknown smartphone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip in various PC games in the Termux-Box and Winlator emulators. Most games at the moment are still not optimized for comfortable launch on emulators and show results that are insufficient for comfortable gaming.
