Because it works and does not detract from any other function of a conventional gamepad.

I disagree. I could never see myself playing a game that requires any kind of precision on a touch screen device.

That being said, I do very much enjoy old, turn-based RPG's on touchscreens. Final Fantasy 3 is a great example of games that work extremely well on touch devices.

I wasn't referring to a touch only device. I was talking a bout a touch screen/pad on a traditional gaming control (wi U/ps4).

of course for touch only devices it works well for simple experiences

I've literally played hundreds of DS games and can confidently say touch screens controls when correctly implemented alongside traditional controls allow for a higher degree of precision.

Touch gaming by itself is weak and unresponsive, and can only work well with extreeeeeemely simple games.

If, however, it is added to a controller with real physical buttons like the PS4 is believed to have, then it can provide significant advantages. The power of touch-screens is their programmable nature. Devs can do whatever they want with them, adding new ways to control certain elements of the game or simply more buttons.

Touchscreen gaming has come a long way and offers a wide variety of games ranging from simple to challenging. You can't dismiss touchscreen gaming as only being simple as its simply not.

I like touch screen gaming when done right. The DS started the touch gaming at first.

I'll never use a touchpad for a shooter or racing game. I downloaded GTA 3 on iPhone and it was a disaster I couldn't control the dam cars or anything. I'll keep my controller and use touchpad only to hit buttons or draw things and that's it.
