I don't recall flappy bird clones or idle games being very existent before the mobile market showed up :p
Not to mention games like Uplink and Pokemon GO where you need to move spatially IRL in order to progress through the game.
well, flappy bird is just another arcade game, not a new Genre. Pokemon GO is just another kind of Geocaching, but well, yeah, geocaching came with new Hardware, so you are right. :D

That depends a lot on how granular you make genres. Dear Eshter and Firewatch both could count as platformers since there's jumping in them, making the Walking Simulator genre redundant.

Exercise games generally need a special control interface. Does Wii Fit really fit into other genres much?

Of course, there was the NES' Power Pad and carnie games before that...
