    You can just sync the Google account that you used on your S3 and sync it on your S4. Then you can go to the play store, hit the menu button, go to "my apps" and re-download the apps you previously downloaded.

    And the S4 comes with only 8GB of onboard storage because of the ridiculous amount of Touchwiz features. Samsung already admitted to this.
    When you download an app, go to settings -> application manager. Then click on an app and there should be an option to "move to sd card".

    There's a handy trick I used from this guy's video - you can drive the loading of the apps from a desktop much more easily than with the S4 alone.

    Won't help with your stored game data though. That will probably require you to manually move the files to the new phone's SD card after the game has been pushed to the S4.
