Mobile gaming is great and if you disagree with me, you are just plain wrong.
No, you're wrong you big meanie! #NoYouDealWithIt
it will become great when it comes to my 50'' screen and looks on par with PS4 games.
Mobile gaming is great if your IQ is around 85 and you can't operate above a level one complexity in terms of thoughts going on around you at once. Some are very well made and deserve the praise, but most are pure trash and most people know it. I don't decide they are trash....it's not up to me....They just are. There is less time,care,effort and love put into Mobile games compared to a lot of console,PC & Handheld games. Pushing out pixels for profit does not = a good game.
Uh, that's your opinion ya jack-wagon. Speak for yourself!
Well, it is in the opinion section....
I think playing the "it's an opinion" card went out the window when you ended the headline with "STFU and deal with it" tbh. That's a statement, not an opinion.
It exploits people with no self control and it's is generally awful.
Some does, but clearly not all. Read the article :P
It's not that I don't like mobile gaming itself but when it takes from other parts of gaming i.e consoles, that's what I despise.
You reeks are still swimming in denial huh? 4 years ago you all scoffed when it was predicted that mobile would overtake handheld gaming in terms of revenue. Now that it's taking publishers' focus away from home consoles as well you want to still stick your heads in the sand? Accept the inevitable and move on.
I think people scoffed at that mostly because they didn't want it to happen....no one said it wouldn't Mobile is a cancer to this industry. Just recently a founder from Remedy left for mobile. He could have opened a new studio which would of been like Remedy to run along side them....but no, we didn't get that, we are going to get some shitty mobile game
You make it sound so simple, just open a studio, recruit 100+ talented staff, magically produce a Hollywood size budget and make games. Console gaming is becoming so high risk these days I can completely see why the Remedy founder wanted to go mobile. I'm in no way supporting mobile gaming and agree that it's a cancer on the console gaming industry but it's not hard to see why developers would be looking to go that route.
KAMEHAMEHA KAMEH AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Thats what ya get for praising mobile gaming :p
Don't you mean - Kali mah kali mah, humon shenae
Mobile gaming sucks and you know it
Isn't the real issue that I'm not paying much attention to it? Not buying mobile based titles much less wasting money on microtransactions? Complaining about the latter especially because that particular pay model is creeping into $60 "full" games?
Right now I'm playing Dark Souls 2 and I'm loving it. Let's see a tablet have a game like that. :I
Who approved this? Lol..wowza
The writer has 10 n4g accounts....AND, he approved it all from his Mobile...
No. F*ck outta here.
Mobile gaming is the offspring of the Wii fad that started in 2006. It's target audience.... AREN'T GAMERS. Yet publishers (some at least) see it as "the future". Nope.
the games i use my phone for are solitare, jezzball, some type of arcade basketball shooting game, bowling, some type of PAint app. etc not real games games but pass the 10 mins type of distraction
Mobile gaming IS the future...of making money off of people's additive personalities with little to no effort towards development while capitalizing on the popularity of video games that people with real talent worked hard to achieve. There..fixed it.
Nope it ain't. Touchscreen controls are not for me , that little screen will never be able to immerse me into the game's world , It dries up my phone's battery life really quick and last of all most games on mobile devices are plain cash grabs and ftp model sucks. It's nice to play temple run in the metro with nothing else to do but need a console to get lost into Uncharted's or Halo's lore.
No they are not, i only play games on my Xperia to kill some time and i can never play for more than 10 minute(and that only happens when i forget my vita).
Mobile gaming is trash. I would take Tetris on Gameboy over micro transaction ridden crap mobile games anyday.
There's no innovation if you put all your focus on mobile gaming for the rest of your life since the way you control this device isn't gonna help you to achieve the same type of experience you get with consoles / PC , few type of games has been made to this device and each one of them has thousands of clones in the mobile market , its funny considering these few games originally ripped off others ideas and claim as if they come up with the next big gimmicky thing to brainwash the masses, what i find even more ironic and shady that you use a screenshot from a PC game ( Dreadout ) to support your delusional opinion , i'm sorry to say this but mobile gaming is designed mostly for casuals / hipsters / kids , if you still want to stick to that option then good for you , its your choice after all but i remind you , this means a disaster for the gaming industry and that's enough to tell you .
Wow, simply wow. Mobile gaming is beyond popular bc the install base is...well...everyone. Publishers love it bc it costs nothing and there are no standards. Mobile gaming is a cancer and it is destroying the industry, look at Japan they don't play consoles anymore. How many publishers and developers have turned to mobile gaming? A lot. It takes resources and talent away from console and PC gaming and as result we get less games. If ur for mobile gaming then ur for killing the console and handheld industry. The VITA while an incredible piece of tech failed due in large part to mobile gaming. At least VITA has dual analog sticks and full gaming experiences. The majority of mobile games are terrible and are not deep meaningful experiences. Try playing a game as good as Witcher 3 or Bloodborne on a mobile device. The touch only or gyroscopic controls limit mobile games to a very specific and often poorly controlled catalog of games. Mobile gaming is for casual gamers and that is how games are designed and marketed. Bc a games hard doesn't make it not for casuals, wasn't flappy birds supposed to be hard? Bc the games are cheap generally not as much time or resources go into making it ending in a substandard final product. How did this article get approved? "STFU"? Mobile gaming is the problem and serious console gamers would generally agree.
Regardelss of what readers here thing about mobile gaming. The fact is that mobile gaming is great. And it's about to in terms of revenue go past consoles games.
Mobile gaming on the rise.... yay
Maybe for some people, when I have a game to play, comfortable, Witcher 3 on my phone then I might look that way. As it stands right now, mobile gaming for me personally offers nothing. It kills battery life and I have no interest in it. As a side note, comparing mobile games and trying to justify it to proper budget PC/Console AAA game is beyond ridiculous. If I gave a option to 100 gamers in front of their eyes to play witcher 3 vs their random mobile game, I have a good feeling 98% would gladly pick up the witcher.
Ha! But yeah, there are a few good games, such as the game they mentioned in the article called "monument valley" Played it a couple of weeks ago and loved it. Still, generaly mobile games are just so poor.
No it's not, in fact mobile gaming is nothing more than the wii's bastard child. There may be a few "ok" games but it'll never be truly great. That's why God gave us consoles.
