    Action Games:

    Action games especially 3rd person , beat em ups and top down is where the dual analog touchpad shines the most. The controls are perfect especially on 3D enviroments where the D-Pad is too cut and dry when you want precision.

    Casual:

    None. I dont do much casual gaming.

    Fighting:

    Again the xperia play shines the most here with its d-pad control and shoulder buttons. If your a fighter fan you know how important those shoulder pads are.

    Music:

    Havent tried none yet.

    Puzzle:

    Havent tried none yet.

    Role playing:

    Another genre where the xperia play shines the most. If you played RPG games with a touchscreen, the different commands and swipes feels confusing when a button solves it all.

    Shooter:

    Although better than the psp, ds, ipod touch. Developers cant seem o get the touchpads right . Either the touchpads repond to slow or it just stops reponding.

    Simulation:

    Sims..ok.

    Sports:

    Not a big fan.

    Stragety:

    Havent tried none yet.

    I'm having a blast with mine.

    Emulators are super fun, but a lot of great games have come out with xperia play optimized controls.

    My favorite ones right now are
    Death Work
    Minecraft
    Roboto
    They Need To Be Fed

    I have about 20 games installed on my PLAY, not including emulators. I am also probably gonna get Galaxy On Fire 2, and am looking forward to the new Need for Speed.

    I love it so far. I have a lot of emus(SNES, NES, PSX, GBA, GBC) and have been playing Mega Man X(to me, this wins it).

    I have also played NOVA 2, Asphalt 6, Crash Banicoot, and it seems pretty flawless to me.

    Also, I took advantage of Gameloft's promotion this weekend, so I have about 7 more games to play. This phone is the best. Thinking about waiting for next Playstation Certified phone for upgrade.

    The gaming is awesome. Unfortunately, I couldn't deal with the low storage and switched phone

    I have learned to deal with the low storage, plus most of my gaming is roms any ways.

    Gotta admit, having a games controller built into the phone is simply genious.

    This is the ONLY device i need to take around with me now.
