No. Mame4droid runs like a dream on my Kindle Fire but I can't really play *any* of the games (from pac-man to Metal Slug to Galaga) because the touchscreen joystick is just annoying as hell. Real controller sticks and buttons just can't be replaced with a tablet touchscreen for some types of games.
A hundred times this. It's a cryin' shame that there isn't a portable device with the app store/dev support/billions of games that the iTouch and Android devices have, but with the control options of a DS or PSP. I see all kinds of cool little games for my iTouch that I just can't play because on-screen joysticks are absolutely useless (to me).
Touch screens are great, but not for a great many types of games.
