The fucking first sentence:

...Super Mario Bros., finally came to the world’s most popular video game machine: the iPhone.

I'm sorry NYT, since when is the fuckin' iPhone the "world's most popular video game machine"? It's not even the world's most popular cell phone.

This is fake news.

They're pushing that narrative hard about casual gamers (ie, themselves) being the future of the industry.

all their going to do is push the core demographic out further with torrenting and emulators we'll always still play video games but they're in for a rude awakening if they expect SJWs and women to spend any money on them

A little fake news to lead into a SJW rant never hurt anyone. I hope trash like this starts hurting the NYT.

The only thing about the game that they talk about is how it fails to be socially progressive. Completely useless story.

Actually, if I had to guess, it IS the world most popular smartphone. While apple only commands what, 14% of the Smartphone market? 17%? Whatever, they release 2 phones a year, but by calling them the 'iphone' collectively, you are referring to that entire 14% (or is it 17%? really depends on who you ask) chunk. Of course, it would only be fair to compare it to the 86% chunk for android, but because of the way they phrased it, the iPhone would instead have to be compared to an individual model of phone, say the galaxy s6, and with so many phones sold, the iPhone will win any of those comparisons, simply because the android market is so, so fractured.
