Depends on what kind of gaming you would like to do and how much you want to spend. Most small form factor tablets are not suitable for gaming other than casual games. If you want to play more demanding games, then something like the Microsoft Surface or another Windows tablet would be better. The iPad Pro would also be good, but you would be limited to games that are supported by Mac gaming.
If you can go to a store which has models of tablets and small laptops you can actually try, that would be a good way to start seeing what you like.
