It is sad how many mobile games have less interactivity than 3 decade old Game & Watch games, but with fancy production values, cute visuals & extensive monetization. 
I prefer playing games that require more than the occasional tap or swipe with a single finger.

There will always be a demand for high-quality and highly controllable deeper games as what PC & console today have & enable. Just as there is a simultaneous demand in the public both for stupid reality TV shows & for high-quality/high-impact cable TV shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead (guess which category I watch).

Some such high-quality deeper PC/console games will be able to transition over to mobile platforms, but most will not due to the low-bandwidth control limitations with the medium (+ various other limitations such as current hardware, or business models and such).

That said, I wonder when the first high-quality actually functional eye-tracking will be put in a tablet. That would be a major input improvement. 
But your full hands with 10 fingers are really your highest bandwidth input device. Single finger + flat glass = low bandwidth & major limitation.

I've gotten addicted to ONE mobile game.  Flight Control.  That's it.  I've tried 3-4 dozen games and they are all either very shallow or want money from me in order to shorten what becomes maddening compulsion loops or exponential resource curves.  Alas.

Slides are up for my "5 Major Challenges in Real-time Rendering" talk that I did at the Beyond Programmable Shading Course at #siggraph   2012.

Let me know if you have any feedback or want to discuss some of the topics more, or if you have solutions for the challenges :)

The rest of the slides for the course should be up shortly on:

Cloud Atlas looks very interesting! Like the concept. Feels like it will either be absolutely great or an incoherent but beautiful mess (though think & hope it will be the former)

The book was actually a beautiful incoherent mess. In this case, I'm more interested in the translation than the actual story on display.
