    a very simple example is the game called Field goal. I install it on my cm9 touchpad and poof, game looks incredibly clear etc. So i wanted it on the go, i install it on my nexus and eww game is nasty. Looks an NES game. pixelated etc. Same goes for games like Reckless racing etc etc. Why is that? isn't the GPU in this phone powerful to run these games clear and sexy?

    Not sure what the problem is, but reckless racing looks fine for me.

    Hmm, do you have "force GPU rendering" checked in the settings?

    I'd try unchecking that - I haven't found a single game that looks bad.

    I'd be curious to see your pics/examples if you can get them uploaded. I tend to agree that Flick Kick Fieldgoal tends to look better on other phones. However, games like NFL Kicker and NFL Flick Quarterback are downright gorgeous on this phone.

    looks the apps are not updated for ICS and are displaying low res textures.

    This plus the game needs to adgusted for the GN resolution, if not the game will look "tall" or "fat" depending on how the res it tries use is

    ok so then ya do agree games look poorer on the nexus compared to other devices?

    guess that also explains why they look better on the touchpad since resolution on the touchpad is less.

    So the thread title should be: "Any reason why certain game developers haven't upgraded their games for a new device?"

    well figured a game as popular as reckless racing, thought it'd look great on any recent device

    just saying there's no reason to bash the device for something that's clearly the developer's fault
