Smart Phone Gamers Are Gamers, So Get Over It

Chris Buffa (Modojo): As an avid player of iPhone and iPad games, I look forward to Wednesdays (11:00PM ET) about as much as you probably do Tuesdays, when publishers normally send the week's titles to retail.

Conversely, I download mine, and there's never a complete schedule on sites like Amazon or GameStop to let me know what's on deck. At least 60 percent of these games are (mostly) a welcome surprise.

The story is too old to be commented.

I guess we really need to stretch the definition of "gamer" to include smartphone gamers. I mean, by the same logic, Grammy and Grampy who play Wii Fit and Wii Sports Resort are also gamers, right? Julia the Soccer Mom who plays a few hours of Farmville while uploading photos on Facebook is a gamer, right?

The "gaming industry" has given so much grief to social-site gamers and Wii gamers this gen, and yet we are so apologetic toward the crappy flash games sold on the iPhone. Why? How about we admit that they're just cheap little games and that's all. Why does the author of the article have to beat his chest and insist "imma gamer too because I game on deh I FONE!"
