Current State of Mobile Games

How do you think the state of the mobile games is nowadays? Is it doing well in comparison to other gaming devices/platforms? If so, then do you think that it can play as a vital factor when one's choosing which phone they're gonna go for next -- a gaming-focused one or any average mobile would do? If not, where do you think it's lacking? Where do you see the state of mobile games in the future?

  • My view is that they fill a different need. Mobile games do well at filling in small chunks of time while you're waiting out and about - time that you'd still be waiting for a PC or console game to load. That's a niche that appeals to a heap of people and the games are so much more accessible because everyone has a phone in their pocket.

    That does also mean that vulnerable people are also more readily taken advantage of with respect to monetization though...
