Chorome os has incoperated android apps, so you can enjoy mobile games. Personally, I hope that Google merges android 12L and chrome os so the two in one computers will be more user-friendly.

You could try this new "beta" os that Google is launching called Chrome OS Flex (after they bought Cloudready). It's main purpose is to install chromeOS on other laptops, but it's worth giving a shot. It works on a lot of devices.
