A stylus? Sure, you can use one. Can it handle games?
Well, yes, but not those games as a rule, since they're not designed for this interface, and it'd take some reworking. There may be some Sim-style product for the Android, I don't know, I've never played it, so I have no interest in it. I do know there's some strategy type games that could be considered close to Age of Empires or Civilization though.
Anyway, I love my Xoom, it's convenient for reading books on the couch, checking the web or my mail, and it works pretty good with the HDMI cable to my TV.
The only problem I've had with it is that I jammed the volume down button in somehow, and fixing that seems to have made that contact require prodding to work. Which isn't a huge deal, as I can hit the volume up, and use the slider instead, so the only time I'd explicitly need volume down is if I wanted to use one of the reset modes. (Which was the problem I had to unjam the volume down anyway!).
It was probably my fault in some way, so I can't blame Motorola for it.

(Anomaly warzone earth crashes after the intro movie, and Avadon, the black fortress freezes for a moment ever 30 seconds.) Would the zoom be able to run these programs without issues?
Never played Warzone Earth, but I've not had a problem with Avadon locking up for me.
