Hi all, Is there a way to play Android games from the arcade front end on my PC?

I've discovered, for example, Nox which is a full fledged tablet / phone emulator. You can map keyboard (& maybe joysticks) to touchscreen actions and it works fine. However it's fairly heavy duty and I haven't worked out if it's possible to autostart games from a command line option and map the controller too.

FWIW I've struggled to get a Google account working properly through Nox, but its straightforward to download installers (APK) and load them directly - but a lot of games need access to Play Services - I guess a simple device emulator without the OS wouldn't run most games?

Anyway, anyone added a suite of 'droid games to their arcade machine?

I knew that when I posted, but I think the question is still quite a good one and the answers useful to all :)
