Super Hexagon), and so the issue here is probably pretty complex.

Still, I want what I want, and I want the ability to play more of these smaller PC games I enjoy so much on my tablet and phone, and I can’t be alone in that. There has to be great demand for this. I just hope these developers can see that. There are so many that would be ripe for conversion, such as: Frozen Synapse, Analogue: A Hate Story, Limbo, Lone Survivor and Vessel. And those are just games I own! There are many more games that I don’t own that would be good, too.

And then there are the archives. GOG.com is a great place to find old games, but can you imagine them having a mobile marketplace? Older titles like Fallout, Syberia and Syndicate would probably kill on mobile.

Yes, there are already more than enough games on mobile platforms, but the vast majority of these titles are of the type that you pick up and play for a few minutes and then do something else. When you examine the full scope of the mobile gaming landscape, it becomes clear that only a small percentage of mobile games are highly engaging experiences. Games like the ones I’ve mentioned above would provide an influx of more in-depth and engaging experiences than we are accustomed to on mobile. Then, we would all be winners.
