For real, he can't be serious. Plus you can use a controller, and it's not awkward like using a controller with a phone.

Unless you have the common sense to sync a bluetooth controller with your iPod or Android device and emulate the touch screen input with it. Then you can argue its superiority considering you can get both Sonic 4 episodes for less than the cost of one of them one a console or PC and use a controller.



Which then defeats the purpose of the device. You can get a much better experience on anything else with less hassle with the same controller.

The purpose of the device varies from device to device. The iPhone and Android phones purpose is to be a phone. Its just gravy that they play games. The iPod and Android media devices are mp3 players. Its just gravy that they play games. Tablets are designed to be laptop replacements. You wouldn't say that connecting a controller to a laptop defeats its purpose, so why say it about a tablet? I can just as easily say that games on a PC defeat the purpose of a PC. Just because some people buy a PC to play games doesn't mean thats why PCs were made.

There's plenty of great games on iOS- more in fact the on 3DS, many are priced amazingly aswell- Broken Sword 1&2, Beneath a Steel Sky, Swordigo, Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy, Soosiz, Scribblenaughts, PvsZ, World Of Goo- tons of RPG's if that's your thing, I couldn't go on for hours. Nintendo could learn so much in terms of online distribution, iTunes Store etc but they are too stubborn and out of touch to change.

It is mostly shovelware and ripoffs of actual games. And as long as the controls are based fully off the touchscreen, the games on ios will always be inferior to their console/handheld brothers.


Like there being many games on DS that really shouldn't use the touchscreen, sometimes buttons can hold a game back.

Best example context-wise would be RTS games on the old Playstation. Using the analog to play fast-paced point-&-clicks, not a very good idea. Once I plugged in the PSX mouse though, tons better.

Games where touch/multitouch/gesture controls would be better usually involve fast gameplay and multitasking.

Mega Man X is easier to play on a touch screen than a keyboard, how does knowing this make someone not a gamer?
