I upgraded to a Galaxy s2 the other day, and one of the free games I got with it was Dead Space. I was quite gobsmacked with how well it looked and played. It opened my eyes tbh, here was a game that looked and played like a console game.

It was still a bit limited compared to its console counterparts, but for a mobile game it was light years away from what I was used to playing on my previous phone.

It showed me that progress is rapidly increasing in terms of what mobile phone games can achieve.

In a few years who knows what they will be capable of. I'd like to think that console gaming will be around for a long time, but thinking realistically, I don't think it will.

The time of the mobile phone as a true gaming device may be coming much sooner than many may think.

There's certainly experiences like this out there on mobile to be had, but I wonder why mobile games need to appeal to "proper gamers". They're not really the same demographics and the gamers who are playing mobile games certainly don't think there's anything wrong - certainly not when you consider the billions of dollars worldwide that are being spent on mobile games. I think if every mobile game suddenly became more like the games we'd see on consoles or dedicated mobile gaming devices, we'd probably see mobile game sales fall off. Those aren't the type of games mobile players are looking for, otherwise everyone would be rushing out to buy Grand Theft Auto 3 on their iPhones instead of Angry Birds. Basically, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Mobile phones need a physical controller or no ty.
