I recently read an article by Forbs columnist Louis Bedigian. He said a few words about the iPhone I disagree with- but what really stung me in his criticism was his brief commentary on gaming.
Bedigian mentioned Epic Games’ presentation of Infinity Blade II and in doing so made a scathing remark- that the iPhone cannot power real games.
What authority does anyone have to judge what game is real or not? Before we can even consider making a distinction, we have to define what a game is.
According to Miriam-Webster, a game is an “activity engaged in for diversion or amusement”. There’s a ton of those activities in the App Store and the Android Market. I could be wrong.
Bedigian goads Apple to create a “real” gaming machine that plays “real” games. Do you think mobile devices are capable of delivering real gaming experiences?
Post in the comments and lets find out.
