Tablets have nothing to do with games being stupid. There are many highly praised AAA titles that I could not stand to play more than an hour and never to try again.
Games like Skyrim are pure crap but people still play them and praise them them. And Skyrim doesn't have a long gameplay. It just wastes most of your game time forcing you to walk around, basically doing nothing. While super simple games like Tetris or even Mario are pure gameplay - you don't rest for a second.
The problem with touchscreen games is that developers don't understand how to properly utilize the technology and they try to imitate consoles and PC gameplay. I bet that tablet gaming could be equal in quality to consoles' and PCs'

And clearly, you're sure to lose too.
Gaming on a tablet is generally not great but driving games are an exception. The tablet is the steering wheel. Tablets are ideally suited to these games and I love playing Need for Speed on my TouchPad more than Dirt 3 on my PC
So where do you get that this is closed to permanent California residents?
From the web page:
"So there is a catch, to be eligible you must be a California resident, at least 18 years of age, able to attend the Semi-Finalist event in Los Angeles on the evening of Tuesday, May 22 and also able to attend the Snapdragon Gaming World Record Challenge at E3 from 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 5 through to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6."
Looks to me like only California residents over the age of 18 are allowed. Methinks the author needs a little reading comprehension training.
