The market for games with controller support is growing. Android TV, the Nvidia Shield Console, and other systems are putting games with gamepad support on the forefront and making them more popular. The proliferation of gamepads and Bluetooth controllers have made playing games on your mobile devices with a controller easier than ever before. Why not play some wicked good games with it? Here are the best games with gamepad support for Android. Please note that there are some older games with excellent controller support like Star Wars: KOTOR and The Bard’s Tale. However, many of those older controller games haven’t been updated in years and we can’t guarantee that they’ll work with newer controllers, newer versions of Android, or newer devices. You can try those at your own risk.HERE ARE SOME MORE EXCELLENT LISTS THAT MIGHT HELP!
