Games like Street Fighter and even FPS are more a novelty on touchscreens and don't really belong as a serious genre on the platform. True touchscreen games are originally programmed for the platform and use it to its strengths. That said, not every genre belongs on a touchscreen. It can't be a device for every genre. I suppose if a developer made a fighting game like SF specifically for touch controls it can work, but ultimately it wouldn't be as deep as on a console. Same can be said for a FPS. They can work to a degree, but the experience and depth will be compromised. However games like XCOM or any TBS work extremely well on the platform. Unfortunately skinner boxes like farmville also work really well.
