Default What are the most immersive games for Android?

I love really immersive games like Oblivion, Black and White, the GTA series, and Animal Crossing. Doesn't matter if it's RPG style, virtual life, town/city building, or even otherwise. As long as it's a game that really pulls me in. Open world is definitely a plus, but not necessary.

Anyone have suggestions for some games that you feel are immersive and really pull you in?

By the way, I've just downloaded Virtual City and Age of Empires, so those are covered.

Shadowgun, 9MM, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour are all very immersive, however they are all over about £5 or $6.

Thanks for the suggestions, they're great, but I'm hoping to find something a little more relaxing.

They're fun and addicting, but not really very immersive though.

Try Happy Street maybe...similar-ish to Animal Crossing but with more quests and building etc.

Thanks, I checked it out, but it looks like the latest update makes the game pretty dependent upon Facebook. Everyone seems to be complaining about it, and I'm not a fan of Facebook to begin with. I wish developers would quit that, as it seems to be happening often these days.

Are you looking for a sim type game building city's, growing things and such? They can go on and on and on. I play the Ice Age Village game a little but it is more for the younger crowd I think.

Waking Mars is an excellent game and very immersive.

Yeah, probably a bit too young for me. I'd like to find something a little more realistic. I downloaded Virtual City Playground and Megapolis. They look promising.

Aye, I've been thinking about checking it out. I'll go ahead and give it a go.

I also downloaded Galaxy of Fire 2 and the add-ons for it. It looks a lot like Eve Online, which I played for a while and loved. GF2 looks like a really immersive open world game, and the graphics look fantastic.

Just finished playing Yesterday, it's a story game where you solve clues to progress the story. There's a free version (with ads) and paid version, which I got during a sale.

Aye, I've got that one. I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

I know that Rebuild is pretty immersive. It's like a zombie apocalypse town sim where you send people on missions, take over infested places and try to survive while building a town of survivors.

I also hear that Raven sword is a pretty good RPG, nice graphics and fairly immersive. My brother speaks highly of it.

Its kind of dark toned but some interesting twists. Make sure you have a charger nearby though, it can be a battery drainer.

I just started The Bard's Tale and so far that seems like an immersive type of game, with good humor, and nice graphics. Currently on sale for $2.99.

One warning, after you buy the game, it then downloads, so you won't be left with much time to try it out before the 15 minute return period is over.

Yeah, I like the dark themed games. I've also got Dark Meadow, The Lost Souls, Plague, a couple of Slenderman games, and The Walking Dead. I've got the Bard's Tale too. I'm a bit of a game fiend hehe.

I've got Aralon and will probably go ahead and get Ravensword as well. Have you played it? I've heard it's like Skyrim, which is right up my alley.

Those both look interesting. I remember reading about Ravensword but $7.99 seemed steep so I was going to wait for a sale. I'm trying to just stick to one of these huge games at a time anyway. So I'll check these out after finishing The Bard's Tale.
