Gaming is a fantastic hobby, that many of us wish we had more time to do. Whether it’s commuting to and from work, traveling, or just a busy schedule in general. Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to sit down and play a game. Thankfully, there has been a variety of services as well as handheld devices that have made gaming on the go much easier. From the Nintendo Switch, and Steam Deck which offer native gaming on the go, to Xbox Game Streaming and PS Now which allow you to play titles on your mobile device.
