Sony 285/385 for Casual Gaming?

I'll be brief, I currently own an HW50ES 1080p and I expect several more years of use out of it now that replacement bulbs can be found in the single digits. However I'm looking ahead to the near future where a Sony 4K will replace it. Quickly, are the 285/385 suitable for doing casual gaming from the couch? I think the answer is yes but I wanted to check.
I'd like to consider one of the Brand-X short throw laser projectors but it seems where gaming is concerned those are firmly in the 'nope' range.......

Can anyone who does keyboard/mouse gaming with a 285/385 give me a thumbs-up or down on this?

Many Thanks!

I did KB/M gaming on my 385ES and did not find any issues with the causal gaming. If I wanted to do more twitch type FPS gaming I would play on a gaming monitor, but for casual gaming you will be fine.
