When I'm in the iTunes Store, I see games for iPhone and iPad, but no such category seems to exist in the Mac Store. Do I have this right? If so, does anyone know why? It can't be a legal issue or there would be games in either Store Question

Probably something to do with this..

From the Korean Game Rating Board (http://www.grb.or.kr/english/Default.aspx):
"Every game material (PC packages, PC online, Mobile, Arcade, Video-Console, Downloaded, Embedded games, etc.) has to be presented and rated by GRB. Under "the Game Industry Promotion Act", every game developer and distributor must have their games rated prior to a game being released to the public."

They are not enforcing this for mobile, obviously.
