nah there are some kinds of games that are good for touchscreens
tower defense is best example
mobile games are sharing shelf space with made for pc or console titles since a long time now
another good thing mobile games are doing is reviving old pc and console titles from all eras and giving them new life. Doom, PoP, Carmageddon, Re-Volt, GTA, Bioshock, KOTOR are examples...
Babylonian Twins was originally made for Amiga, but was in development hell and never released, Mobile allowed the title to flourish
world of goo got better critical ratings on touchscreens years after releasing on PC and Wii

so it is terribly unfair to say "mobile gaming is :censored:"

at same time saying it is "killing" console and PC is also too hopeful

Ain't going to happen. Consoles gaming is going to get strong where as mobile gaming is now started to reach its saturation

I don't think it would be killing PC or Consoles anytime soon. But it could take portable gaming to the next level.

Heating and power could be an issue though.

sure mobile gaming is gaining traction but if you are keeping up with the news you will see while pc sales growth are overall stagnant but gaming pc and parts are seeing year on year improvements which show no signs of declining.

it's great that there are games for keyboard+mouse, touchscreens, controllers and motion controllers
each is unique and best for some kinds of games that use those best

^nobody told square enix that

you guys are thinking about titles ported from pc / console to mobiles.

steam/ windows store / xbox store all have titles that originated on touchscreens

how difficult is it to accept that touchscreens are a great medium for different types of games, that are as valid as "games" as any other platform

The 360 and PS3 were released years ago and DX 9 was the best then. And besides PS3 does not use DX it uses openGL.

If you guys watch the valve documentary about the steam controller, they raised some excellent points regarding what makes gaming on a touchscreen worse than a controller..
Its all dependent upon actual feedback you recieve on your fingers, which includes muscle memory that is really really essential for hardcore gaming and an enjoyable experience.

ANyway, im not against mobile gaming.. i too enjoy dem..
