My reply to these articles:
Why I'm a Mobile Gamer:
2. Touch is a great control for some games, and it's free with the device.
3. No monthly charges for social gaming.
4. Game companies can't disguise poor gaming mechanics with fancy graphics.
5. Lots of games for iOS & Android, so only a few people will have angst related to choosing a gaming OS.
6. Is your fancy-schmancy $30 game better than World of Goo? Is it really?
7. No creepy uncanny-valley people.
8. Did I mention it's cheap?
