Certain control schemes are important for certain genres, but genres themselves are not so much important for general crowd. Mobile just inventing their own genres or adapting existing with mobile controls in mind.My only quip would be that cameras don't really need hyper-optics or unique hardware anymore for doing what they do like they used to need, whereas control schemes are tantamount in a gaming experience.
If mobile will win - those genres will just go for extinction (become niche). It's not the first time it happens - TBS/RTS was popular 20 years ago with a number of popular and successful franchises. Then PC lost much of its relevance in gaming space and those genres was not well received on consoles - they became a niche with a rare high profile games. Even MMO are on decline as mobile and MOBA eating away their audience.I just mean that the control limitations will preclude a great number of popular games/genres from appearing on mobile, and as a large market for those genres still exists pubs/devs will still cater for it
