Yes, I think of it as the Android equivalent to Apple TV. I'm an Android fan and also really like Nvidia, so this was a natural fit.
The real test is the wife seal of approval, which I can say is 100% approved. She likes it better than traditional cable, so that is the real win.
I'd be curious to check out what games are available for it. I've
always been more of a PC gamer though..
I have one of the tablets. I have almost never used it. It was given to me a good while back. Get a Steam Deck. Then you can have the controller built in and it just plays all the PC games

I haven't had any type of cable in years.. I feel like I don't really need it, as some of the things I watch are available via over the air broadcast (local news & some game shows, etc.), and some occasional content on streaming.
Most any android game available should work on the Shield. You can connect controllers wired or wireless to it. I'm not much of a gamer, but it is a nice bonus for some people.
I've thought a Steam Deck might be cool, but I also feel like it's basically another PC.. I already have a fairly good desktop PC which I use for gaming (among other things), so I'm not sure how useful it would be to have another device that can run the same games. I also recently hooked up my desktop PC to the TV in my living room.. Currently, my computer/office room is right next to the living room, and my desktop PC is on the other side of the wall where my living room TV is, so I bought
a long HDMI cable and a long USB extender so I could use the TV as
another monitor and be able to plug in a keyboard & mouse & joystick or whatever and play PC games on my TV if I wanted to.
I love my deck and will probably for quite some time.
