Let's skip to the chase. I need help finding some good mobile games that you play not to just pass time or reach a high score. I want something with depth, something that I can play and continue playing. RPGs, games with "career modes", games with good stories to tell etc. Strategies, racing games, platformers, anything. I don't mind paying upfront at all, in fact the game should either be one time purchase or not relying on purchases to sustain gameplay.
Any recommendations? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I own an iPhone SE.
I play on Android, so I don't know if these apps are available on IOS / WindowsPhone. I don't have exactly the games you're looking for, but I've played a fuckton over the years so I'll give you my favorites.
