Remember the apple market isn't just for iPhone, it's also for the iTouch -- a device designed
for music, video, and games. The iPhone is essentially iPod + Phone, the key being that they took what was already exclusively an entertainment device
and added a phone feature. Android is a mobile OS developed by Google, so it's Google + Phone. So you're comparing Apples to Oranges. Or, Apples to Googles.
Ultimately it depends on developers. My thought is "no", because Google itself doesn't seem all that interested in games. But since it's open source, the ball is in the court of developers to build games folks want to play on the G1, so far it's all sodoku, tic-tac-toe, Simon-knock-offs, and ports from the iPhone market.
Personally, I really don't care about games, I have a PSP and GBA if I want portable games. The GBA, quite frankly, has a better interface for gaming than the G1 or the iPhone IMHO. I'm fine with solitare on a phone, especially one experiencing the memory and battery issues the G1 has.
