Most of the android phone can run PSX games via PlayStation 1 emulator. when it’s come to PC games I think there is no emulator which can run the PC game directly on your android device. There is one emulator called DOSBox Turbo which can play PC games on android. but it can only run old x86 games like Doom, Fallout 1 Duke nuke 1 and Elder Scrolls 1 and 2. Why we can’t play new high graphic PC games like GTA4, Dirt 3, Assassin creed and many popular games.
The reason behind it that PC games are too heavy for android phones processor and GPU. Only one thing we can do is waiting for the developers to convert PC games in android platforms like they have done with max Payne, Resident evil 4, Street Fighter IV, GTA VC and GTA 3. Or wait for Heavier processor, Ram and GPU android phones which will be enough powerful to run PC OS and PC games.
we can’t install PC operating system on the android phone directly. Although People have successfully installed windows 95, 98 and XP on android via Bochs or QEMU But it’s unstable and slow. So the sad truth is we can’t play latest PC games on android directly. But when the game becomes old and new phone has the power to run the game. Developer optimizes the game and port to mobile. We all know it takes too many years and not all games are portable to android or iOS.
