How useful is an iPad 2 for gaming?

I am still using my iPad 2 on the latest iOS 7.x. It is as fast as it was under iOS 6.x. Only difference is the App Store likes to crash now. Apps work as long as the developers patch to support iOS 7.1.

To put things in perspective, I also have a Retina iPad Mini on iOS 7.x.

I have not come across any significant difference between the two except LTE.

My iPad 2 still works on all the latest games as long as I have it updated to iOS 7

How's your iPad so far?

I use an iPad 2. Plays everything my iPhone 5s does. Zero problems aside from the occasional crash. iPad 2 is still very useful for gaming.
