There is a lag for all games, so it's pretty much a bust for everything action related.

I don't understand. You can hook an iPad to an HD TV using an HD cable, and play all iOS games, with no lag issues, or whatever, but games with specific button placement don't work. You have to look down at the iPad to ensure you are hitting the virtual buttons. If you are staring up at a TV, you're not going to be able to hit the proper corresponding button on your iPad blindly, without looking down first.

This works with racing games and games with little to no button layout. Complex games can't possibly be played this way. how could you ever play MC3?

Anyway, you don't need AirPlay, or Apple TV at all. Just buy the $40 adaptor from Target or something.

That may be true, but i'm using my iPhone 4s (which is basically a controller) and as long as i can get the virtual mapping feel down, it wouldnt bother me one bit.

M.U.S.E. supports Airplay over Apple TV as well.

I bought the new Apple TV last weekend and I really love it for AirPlay / Movies / iTunes and so on.

To be honest I am not completly happy playing games with it. Real Racing 2 and also Modern Combat 3 have huge lags and aren't playable (for me). I already restartet my iPad2 and - of course - closed all apps in the backgrounds. However this isn't 100% smooth at all.

How are your experiences? Which games are you enjoy playing?

Air wings is great on the big tv. You've got the option for spectator cam if there are a few people, or normal view. I wouldn't bother with the adaptor for 40 bucks, better spend the $ 60 more for apple tv. There is so much more it can offer. I'm using it to watch all my movies on the computer with air video. Works perfectly.
