If you can’t bear to tear yourself away from an exhilarating game, or you’ve got a long journey ahead, gaming on the go could be the solution.

With more and more people choosing to play on the move, it’s easier than ever to stay connected and enjoy the thrills and spills of gaming, no matter where you are in the world. If you’re a fan of playing games on your commute, or you love to pass the time between meetings or classes fighting enemies and building kingdoms, this is the guide for you. Here’s everything you need for seamless gaming on the go.

The device
The only place to start when compiling a list of things you need to play when you’re out and about is the device. As mobile gaming has become more popular, and technology has monopolised the entertainment market for boring road trips and long flights, the range of devices has increased and diversified. There’s a raft of options on offer, but there are a few standouts, including smartphones, the Nintendo Switch and the PS Vita. These are 3 of the best devices for play on the go and they offer gamers the opportunity to enjoy a broad spectrum of games and titles. The vast majority of people now own a smartphone, and this made mobile gaming more accessible. You only have to look around you on the train or watch other customers at a coffee shop to see how popular smartphone games are. The beauty of playing on your phone is that you don’t have to carry any additional devices with you and you can stay in the loop in terms of checking emails and receiving calls and texts at the same time. 

For those who are more enthusiastic about gaming and fans of titles like Super Mario, the Nintendo Switch is an option worth considering. With the Switch, you can move between consoles to play at home or on the go and you can link your device to a big screen. There’s also the Switch Lite, which is slightly cheaper. Another option is the PS Vita. Although not available to buy brand new in the UK anymore, it is possible to pick up second-hand versions online. This option might appeal to fans of Sony games and those who enjoy more intense and interactive gameplay. 

You might enjoy a melody punctured by beeping and buzzing noises, but the people around you probably won’t thank you for providing a musical commentary of what’s happening on your screen when they’re trying to enjoy a moment of peace on their commute home. Developers work hard to create an experience that stimulates all the senses, and the audio track plays an important role in bringing the game to life, but it’s best to enjoy the music alone. Using headphones enables you to immerse yourself in the experience without subjecting others to an unwanted soundtrack. If you’re using a phone, a console or a gaming laptop, you should find it easy to locate compatible headphones. In some cases, it may be possible to buy wireless earphones, which give you more freedom and flexibility. If you listen to music on a regular basis, or you like to be able to block out the noise of traffic, trains or people rushing around, investing in good quality headphones will serve you well even when you’re not gaming. 
Charger and spare battery
If you’re taking your phone on a train journey, or you’re planning to use a handheld console while you wait for an appointment, it’s a good idea to take your charger with you. Batteries can drain quickly, and you don’t want to lose power when you’re on the cusp of glory. If you plan to play for a long time, or you enjoy gaming on the go on a regular basis, it’s also advisable to invest in a spare battery pack. This will ensure that you’re able to play whenever you fancy. 

Carry case
Whether you’re about to catch a flight or you’re travelling to work on the bus, it’s wise to carry your device in a secure, robust case to protect it from damage. Buying a case enables you to shield your gaming device, and it will also provide space for games or accessories you want to take with you. 

Not all games are made equal when it comes to playing on the move. Some titles are much better suited to mobile play than others, so check your collection or your app store before you start your journey. One of the most important considerations, especially if you’re playing on a smartphone or a laptop, is wifi connectivity. Some games require a decent Internet connection, and you might not have access to WiFi all the time if you’re travelling. Airports tend to have free WiFi, but the signal isn’t always brilliant, and you might find that you struggle to play in some parts of the building. It’s a good idea to have a range of games that can be played offline and to think about the kinds of games you want to play when you’re on the move. You might love strategising and trying to build armies and found nations when you’re at home, but if you’ve been on the road or in the air for hours, you might prefer something a little less mentally taxing or more fun. It’s best to take a diverse selection to cater for your mood. 
Many of us enjoy passing time or making journeys more enjoyable with mobile games. Whether you have a gaming device or a smartphone or laptop, it’s a good idea to make sure that you’ve got everything you need to while away the hours with a smile on your face. Once you’ve chosen a device, it’s advisable to invest in a few extras, including headphones, a carry case, some games and a spare battery to enable you to enjoy gaming on the go regardless of where you are or how much time you have available.
