    No you can't. Adroid apps are written for Android devices only.

    BlueStacks is a ready built Android emulator. Note that it does not run every Android App and when I tried it out it lagged pretty horribly.

    Native Applications are always better choices than emulated. If you use an emulator like BlueStacks, do not expect the same experience as on a dedicated Android device.

    BTW I've heard some rumors that Win10 will let users to run Android app on PC without using third-party software.
    Regarding the experience, I think the only difference is the lack of touch gestures (i.e. swipe). According to my personal experience, I think bluestacks and other Android emulators for Windows are most appropriate for playing games. Thus we can enjoy playing favorite Android games on a big screen.
