Games That Will Never Leave Your iDevice

Hi guys,

Just wondering what games have remained on your iDevice since the day you purchased it.

Most of mine are those that are small in size, and easy to pick up and play. Would be curious to see what yours are. Cheers

Mostly runners and games I've invested an insane amount of time into.

The two most obvious ones for me are Angry Birds and Jetpack Joyride.

I honestly don't think I'll own a device without either of those on it.

I love a WIDE variety of games, but the simplicity and the "pick up and play-ness" of both really can't be matched...

There's a bunch of others, and I'll probably get around to posting them, but those two are easy

DBC

I give up.

Ugh, never really got into Angry Birds, still not quite sure what the fascination and obsession about that game is.

Jetpack Joyride is on my list. Temple Run fits into that endless genre as well.

Are there any "bigger size" games that you would not get rid of no matter what? Even if you are running out of space?

Are you saying I, Gladiator is never leaving your iDevice? A bit early to tell, isn't it?

Yeah, I know it's not cool to like AB, but I'm beyond the period in life where I worried about being cool, and I've spent countless satisfying hours with AB, so...

It's kind of funny, I guess AB is a lot like TR. I cannot for the life of me understand how anyone could play that game for more than 30 seconds without deleting it or slipping into a coma from boredom. Never could figure out how people could actually get anything approaching enjoyment out of it...

As for bigger?

Hmmm...

EPOCH. is likely to never leave. Dead Space. Shadowgun.

Oddly, I just looked at my phone, and I don't tend to keep a bunch of truly "big" games around for long. The longest lasting game has to be my original un-nerfed copy of Dark Meadow, and that isn't going anywhere. Ever.
