The iOS and Android platforms are becoming popular platforms for people to develop games on, and some people are even starting to let that get to their heads - trying to pretend they're "big boys".
Here's an ad by Sony for the PSP, making fun of iPhone games:
Got to agree with them to be honest. Platforms like the PSP and the DS are proper mobile gaming devices, they actually have something us gamers would play, and not just some flash games in the guise of apps.
An iPhone game came out a while back that "simulated" running a game development studio called "Game Dev Story". Gamers rejoiced at the prospect, I'm sure. That is, until they actually played the game, which showed off just how out of touch the mobile phone game devs are.
Adrian Chmielars from People Can Fly said "Game dev story on iPhone is as much about real game dev as Bokeback Mountain is about a skiing accident in Aspen" and "[it] might actually be tons of fun for people who are not in game dev, but for us... I mean, what developer's first hire is a secretary?".
So, my faithful followers, tell me - do you take mobile phone game seriously? Are there any iPhone or Android games you think are good enough to be called "games"?
