There is a certain emulator known as DOSBox Turbo, which can allow you to play PC games on your Smartphone.

However, the emulator can only run on old x86 games such as Doom, Fallout 1, Duke Nuke 1 and Elder Scrolls 1 and 2. Why can’t play latest high graphic PC games such as Assassin Creed, Dirt 3, GTA4, and other fresh popular games?

The only reason behind is that they are excessively heavy for the GPU and processor of Smartphones. However, there is no option other than to wait for the developers to develop PC games in Smartphone platforms.  Developers have to do this in the way they do with GTA VC, GTA 3, Max Payne, Resident Evil 4, and Street Fighter IV. If that can’t help, alternative option is to stay for the arrival of another powerful processor, Ram and competent GPU.

If you are experiencing lagging on your device, you must change the quality of the game from sharp to smooth in Splashtop. Mind you, you must connect to high-speed internet connection if you are not using WiFi. Your personal computer should be enough powerful to run a game at sixty (60 fps). Doing this will avoid getting any delay while playing your PC games on the Smartphone. You can reduce the game feature and resolution if your computer fails to get 60 fps. Though you can play PC games of your choice, but making sure you play those games on the compatible device with the PS2/PS3/PS4 controller.
