Is there any difference between different Android versions?

Hi, I am planing to have my first smartphone only play games, apps and web surfing by connecting. Is there any difference between different Android versions? And is it necessary to buy backup batteries?

If you want to play games, you want the latest Android version possible.
Some games (and apps) require fairly up-to-date software. But you needn't hunt for the latest
Kitkat device. Anything 4.x.x or above will do - i.e. any device launched in the last 12 months will probably do. (some chinese knock-offs aside).
If you're into long gaming sessions I'd recommend at least 2GB of RAM.
You also want enough internal memory to install all those games* - Android no longer allows to install apps on the SD card/external memory. Many action games are 700MB to 2GB in size...
The Moto G 8GB for example only has 5GB or so available for user content. You want
a 16GB device if you play big games.

Here's Wikipedia's article on the various versions of Android http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history
