The Shield is the best TV streaming box for playing games from the Play Store, as well as being the streamer for gaming. Would you like to start playing? There are some games to play.

If you want to play more games on the go, be sure to check out our list.

The Shield TV Pro and Shield TV predecessors are not as ready for gaming as the Shield TV (2019) is. The RAM on the tube-shaped streaming dongle was reduced from 2GB to just 2GB, as well as a 32-bit version of the operating system. The base model is not compatible with some games from the Play Store. The Shield TV Pro is compatible to play all of the Shield games.

Bridge Constructor Portal

The Portal spin-off takes the concept of a physics-based puzzle game and adds in some wacky elements from Aperture Laboratories. Through 60 test chambers, your goal is to get the test vehicles to the end of the course if you can use portals, gels, and repulsion, avoiding deadly lasers, pits of acid, and sentient turrets.


It is an outstanding cross-over title that provides a challenge that will delight fans of Bridge Constructor and Portal alike. The best of the series is this one.

In ClusterTruck, your goal is to jump between semi-trucks that are just barrelling down roads and getting blown up by falling rocks, laser beams, and all other crazy obstacles. If you touch the ground you lose.

This is a great game to play with friends, as it is similar to playing lava, with super-human jumping powers and wacky physics.

Death Road to Canada

We talk a lot about Death Road to Canada here on AC. It is one of those games that offers a unique gaming experience every time you play and is full of unexpected surprises. It can be played on your phone or Shield TV.

Death Road to Canada is a survival game where your goal is to outrun a zombie apocalypse by driving to Canada. It is a game that is full of surprises that will keep you coming back for more.

Doom 3

The franchise is both classic and modern. The original and its sequel are available as high-quality ports. The third game in the franchise, called Doom 3, is available for the Shield TV.

There are some visual upgrades, achievements, and a checkpoint system in the BFG Edition. A new mission was cut from the original game. Half-Life 2 is the shooter to play on your Shield TV, but if you are looking for something more aggressive, you can also play Doom 3.

The Final Station

The Final Station reminds me of Death Road to Canada. You have to make due when you are thrown into a zombie apocalypse. As you travel from station to station on The Final Station, you are in control of the few remaining humans.

You are in charge of seeing to passenger needs and making sure the train remains functional. You will pass through swarms of infections to get to the next station. Some of the choices you make will define who you are as a person.

Half-Life 2

Half-life 2 is a masterpiece. Half-Life was a first-person shooter. If you've never played Half-Life 2, you owe it to yourself to check it out. You don't need to have played the first one to play as Gordon, a quiet scientist who accidentally opened a portal to another world while working for Black Mesa Research Facility.

The world has fallen under the control of the Combine, an inter-dimensional empire that has implemented a brutal worldwide police state to control the human race, in Half-Life 2.

Implosion: Never Lose Hope

Implosion: Never Lose Hope is a hidden gem that was originally a mobile title. Implosion is a hack-n-slash action game that follows the last of humanity as they face off against an alien threat. The Warmech Series III Battle Suit is their only hope.

The setting of Implosion is great all on its own, never straying from its deep sci-fi roots, but it is supported by a great cast of voice actors, an excellent orchestral soundtrack, and the kinds of weapons and monsters you fully expect to have at your disposal when playing

The hack-n-slash mechanics are nothing special, but they function beautifully and feel fresh even after you destroy a lot of enemies. There is a lot of depth and fun to be had with the game's moreRPG-like elements when it comes to the ways you can upgrade and personalize your battle.

Implosion is a great game for a low price and can be unlocked for the full experience. You can try the first few levels for free, so you can make your own decision.

Jackbox Party Pack 3

If you just emerged from a hundred years of cryo-sleep, you may not be aware of the cool, hip games that young people are playing these days. This is the only scenario I can think of that would explain how someone missed Jackbox games.

Jackbox games can be played with up to 8 people. There are a number of mini- games in each Party Pack, ranging from designing t-shirts, to deadly quiz shows, to guessing games.

Jackbox games are easy to participate in, and do a great job of pitting you against your friends in a fun, low-salt way. Party Pack 3 is a pretty pricey addition to the list, but you will get a lot of use out of it.

Magic Rampage

Good old-fashioned fun is what Magic Rampage is. To uncover what happened to your king, you need to navigate dungeons, slay bosses, and kill enemies.

There are tons of weapons and character classes to choose from. There is also a Survival mode, Competitive mode, and an exclusive local Versus mode.

Magic Rampage shows that games don't have to be the most cutting-edge experience out there. They have to be happy.

The stealth action found in Metal Gear Solid is not found in this game. Fans will remember Raiden best from the Metal Gear Solid 2, so this is a slick-looking hack-and-slash action spin-off title.

The story revolves around conflicts between rival Private Military Companies, with some corporations looking to court chaos to keep the war economy chugging along. We will not go into the plot specifics, but we want to make sure that you know that this is not the same as the Metal Gear Solid games.


There is a whole universe of procedurally generated planets to explore like the former, along with a full-fledged campaign mode with missions that require space combat.

The simplistic art style and calming soundtrack of the game are truly remarkable. It is heavily influenced by the No Man's Sky vibe. It plays well on a phone, but on a big TV screen with a controller in your hand, it reaches new heights.

Never Alone

Both Never Alone and Super Meat Boy are platformers. Super Meat Boy is all about crushing difficulty, fast action, and precision controls, but Never Alone wants to take you on a more spiritual, reflective, and even enlightening journey.

Nuna, a young Iupiat girl, and her friend the fox, battle against the elements to try and get to the bottom of an eternal blizzard that threatens their lives and everything they know and love. If you play in single-player mode, you can control both Nuna and the fox, but if you play in co-op mode, each player controls one of them.

I wish more platformers and games would do what Never Alone does, teach you about a peoples culture in an engaging and fun way. Never Alone is as good of a single-player experience as it is a co-op one. This delightful game is worth the time and money.

When you make a list of the best games, you know that Portal will be included. It is one of the best games of all time. If you have never played Portal before, I am jealous that you will get to experience this outstanding game for the first time.

This game is celebrated for its subtle storyline, mind-bending puzzles, and one of the most celebrated video game villains of recent times. It has been uploaded to the Shield TV via the Play Store.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch

You can sum it up with one word: wacky. It is a weird concept for a very fun game. An oldie but good fortune, Octodad puts you in the shoes of a loving human family man. You wear a slick suit, have a beautiful wife, two lovely kids, a sweet house in the burbs, and all the while you are fooling the whole world into thinking you are not an animal.

The hilarious physics associated with controlling a man with no bones and eight unwieldy tentacles is what makes Octodad a barrel of laughs. It turns ordinary tasks, like grocery shopping for your family, into herculean efforts. The charm and appeal of the game is due to the novelty of the experience. You will get one heck of a kick out of it while it lasts.

Skateboard Party 3

Skateboard Party 3 is a sequel to the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games. It is a game that we loved from the 90s and early 2000s.

The physics and controls of the game are very familiar and you can choose from a couple of game modes. In Career mode, you get four minutes to explore the eight different locations and rack up a huge score, collect P-A-R-T-Y scattered around as floating letters, and find other hidden items. You can get things unlocked by completing challenges and landing tricks.

Super Meat Boy

Super Meat Boy is brutal. You will feel like you have been through the meat grinder after playing it. Super Meat Boy is a side-scroller that dares players to try and beat their gauntlets of misery and pain.

Meat Boy is on a quest to save his girlfriend from a tuxedo-clad fetus in a jar, and you will guide him as he runs, jumps, and dies in hospitals, caverns, and increasingly dangerous terrain.

Super Meat Boy is a no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills, no frills There is no room for error here. There is something to be said for the rush of elation you get from finally making it through a difficult area.

Do you think you can conquer Super Meat Boy? This is your chance to try!

The Witness

If you consider yourself a hardcore puzzle player, you owe it to yourself to check out The Witness, one of the most beautifully crafted and challenging puzzle games ever conceived. This appears to be a standard puzzle adventure game.

You wander around a mysterious island solving grid puzzles all day long, but as you start to understand the true nature of the island, you begin to see how deep the puzzle theme extends.

The developer claims that all of the puzzles are good. You can get more of the story and more of who you are when you solve a puzzle. It is a good game and worth the high cost of entry.

There's even more on GeForce Now

The Shield box has changed the game. You can stream a lot of great PC games from the cloud with the help of the GeForce Now service from NVIDIA. You can play many games for free, while other games are available for purchase.

You can stream your favorite PC games from your gaming rig to your Shield TV with the help of the Gamestream feature.

Magic Rampage was added to our list.
