Integration of virtual and augmented reality technology

But that’s not all, folks. The integration of virtual and augmented reality technology is taking mobile gaming to the next level. In terms of revenue, mobile-specific games are also becoming increasingly popular. In 2020, mobile-only games generated $68.5 billion in global revenue, which represents a 16% increase from the previous year.

It’s like living in a dream, but with less chance of ending up in a lucid nightmare where you’re stuck in a never-ending math test.

And let’s not forget about artificial intelligence and machine learning. These technologies are making mobile games smarter, more personalized, and more challenging. Soon, you’ll be able to have a virtual pet that remembers your name and gets mad at you if you neglect it for too long. One of the best examples is Pokémon Go, a mobile game developed specifically for smartphones, which was downloaded more than 650 million times and generated over $2 billion in revenue in its first year.

One more example is Minecraft, a game that has been developed specifically for mobile devices and has been downloaded over 150 million times, generating over $1 billion in revenue.

Impact on the way we play and interact with mobile games

But all these advancements in mobile game development aren’t just for our own entertainment. They’re also changing the way we play and interact with mobile games. With increased player engagement and immersion, we’re seeing a shift in player behaviour and expectations. No longer are we content with just tapping the screen, now we want to be fully immersed in the game world and have our senses tantalized.

This shift in player behaviour is also affecting the mobile gaming community and culture. “Mobile games have the potential to make us happier, more productive, and more connected to each other. They can help us solve real-world problems, and they can help us build a better future.” speech by Jane McGonigal at GDC Mobile, a game designer and author who is known for her work in the field of mobile gaming and the impact of gaming on society. With more realistic and immersive games, players are forming deeper connections with their virtual worlds and the characters within them. Soon, we’ll have virtual conventions where players can meet up and talk about their favourite games, just like in the real world, but with less chance of getting stabbed by cosplayers.

Future of mobile gaming

To represent these examples, this graph shows the revenue generated by mobile-only games from 2012 to 2021. As it shows, the revenue generated by mobile-only games has been increasing dramatically over the past five years, and it’s projected to continue to grow in the future. (Source: Newzoo)

But what does the future hold for mobile gaming? Well, the predictions are wild and varied. Some say that we’ll soon be able to control our mobile games with our thoughts, while others predict that mobile games will eventually become so realistic that we won’t be able to tell the difference between the virtual and real worlds. I, for one, am looking forward to the day when I can finally play as a giant robot and crush my enemies without ever leaving my bed.

Of course, there will be challenges and obstacles for the mobile gaming industry to overcome. Issues of privacy and security will become more pressing as we give more personal information to our virtual worlds. And let’s not forget about the inevitable robot uprising, but let’s face it, if the robots are smart enough to play mobile games, then they’re probably smart enough to take over the world anyways.

But despite these challenges, the opportunities for innovation and growth in the mobile gaming market are endless. “Games are not just a distraction from real life, they can be a way to improve real life. Mobile games can be a powerful tool for social change and personal growth.”  Jane McGonigal talked at the interview with VentureBeat.

The possibilities are truly surreal, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for mobile gaming. So, grab your phone, put on your VR headset, and dive into a world of dragons, giant robots, and virtual pets that remember your name. It’s the future, and it’s surreal.
