2 months with a smartphone.. Is console gaming dead?

by Skid Row Trash   //   12:59 PM on 12.31.2012

I have had a smart phone for 2 month now, or something like that. I have tried MANY games on it, and found a couple hidden gems like Game Dev Story and things like that..

Well, I continually read news every day as always online about how consoles are ending, it's all about gaming telephones now.. PC's are dying, tablets are the future.. blah blah blah.

I really do not agree with this statement at all.. With the absolutely terrible selection and no quality control whatsoever on the smart phone market, it is a fucking treasure hunt to try to find any good game at all. While consoles may release bad games, they don't release 1000 bad games every day and hide 1 good one randomly in the mix..

With the steam box out next year, PC gaming is hardly dead. PC has 5 times the number of exclusive IP's now going to be available on your TV with controllers.. If anything, the Console will be putting everything else to shame, and PC gaming will sort of merge with consoles.

I think that these ios or phone games are like when you go to a doctors office and pick up a random magazine and skim through it until your appointment, then you drop it and forget about it forever. Whereas a "real" game for consoles or PC is like getting into a very well written book that is part of a trilogy or something. You don't want to put it down, and you go out of your way to read it and you remember your experience.

If there is one thing I want to see die, it is not consoles, pc, or smart phones. I want to see an end to those "consoles are over" "PC are now obsolete" articles. That would be sweet.
