Judging by the list of over 100 Android games already available for Amazon’s brand new Fire TV, the company is serious about succeeding where the Ouya hasn’t in the living room.

Amazon revealed the Fire TV, priced at $99, at a special event today. The Android-based set-top box, available now, is somewhere between an Apple TV, a Google Chromecast, a Roku, and an Ouya with its combination of video streaming applications and games. When it comes to games, Amazon already has something for everyone, including RPGs, classics like Sonic the Hedgehog, endless runners, shooters, beat-em-ups, several mobile best-sellers, and more. It’s even making its own games with its recently acquired development team, and it has come out with a separately sold $40 controller.

Here is a full (and very long) list of the 133 games now available for purchase on Amazon.com. Some of the highlights are the Sonic games, Asphalt 8, Despicable Me: Minion Rush, The Walking Dead, and Minecraft — Pocket Edition.
