In what world are "Track Your Favorite Band" apps considered games?

Who does one complain to for the FLOOD of useless "Follow Band X" apps that just hit the AppStore today? In what world are these, even if useful to somebody, considered "games"? It just appears to me as targeted spamming at gamers.

I mean even the many lame sliding puzzle with pictures of celebrity X, while useless spam, ARE in fact games.

The same world where a christian radio app and popcorn machine simulators are considered games...

I 100% agree this crap needs to be sorted proper - Apple went control freak on keywords but categories are still a free-for all
