Cytus is a really good shout, actually. There's no reason you should ever feel done with it.

And I loved King of Dragon's Pass - but I feel like I've seen every event. Don't think it could last me till the end of time. Still, a brilliant, brilliant game.

Hunters Episode 2
Love the gameplay, the soundtrack and the look. The random daily levels will make sure I have something different to play for the rest of my life.

Because on top of a great story I have the forever long quest of improving my home base.

GTA: San Andreas
I might finally get around to completing it + some great music for when I get enough of orchestral stuff.
Could end up changing this for Monster Hunter. Anyways both games should last a long time.

Asphalt 8
Again great soundtrack and an amazing arcade racer, I need that.

Midway Arcade Collection
Just because there is a lot of variation here, and having only four other games, that seems needed.

Pinball Arcade (with all tables) : the best pinball simulation of all time. Better than zen pinball as the tables in Pinball Arcade have been built during 50 years using a lot of very skilled people. In zen pinball, all tables are built the same way. The only contender would have been Timeshock! but one single table is not enough.

Virtual pool 4: Celeris is the best studio of all time concerning pool. Until recently, my choice would have been Virtual pool HD but since a real update has been published, I retain the most up to date.

Soul calibur: the best fighter of all time. I could have hesitate with Garou but Garou definitely requires a pad.

Scrabble : not the best adaptation but continuous improvement has led to a solid game now. And to be honest I always spend some time in the subway playing Scrabble.

Pure chess: a chess game is required. Not the strongestin pure force (Shredder or Hiarcs would then have been my choice) but the most well done with crisp 3D graphics. It.s always a pleasure to play.

I choose games that will forever be challenging as I will stay forever in a desert Island. Games like Grim Fandango, Baldur's gate or Bioshock have an end, whatever my love for these games.

iOS 9 broke it I believe, so Ryan took it down to fix it I guess.

Crashlands - Assuming user made content, it could go on for a long time.
Wayward Souls - Best ARPG, plus procedual generation.
Geometry Wars 3 - Endless arcade shooting
Pac-Man CEDX - The best version of a timeless game.
Monster Hunter FU - Because if you can put MH on a list, you do it.

My five

1. Bug Heroes the original... Sequel is amazing, but I prefer the first one

2. Bad Piggies/Angry Birds DO NOT SHOOT ME Bad Piggies has this "unlimited toy" feel to it and I just can't stop playing it. Angry birds original has soooo much content and I just love these games.

3. If I can have an online game, Combat Monsters. Truly a unique and fun experience that is one of the best strategy experiences I have found in 6 years of iOS gaming for me.

4. Heroes & Castles II. Fresh install the depth and width of this game is endless. I love tinkering in it... I have sunk more hours in this game then any other iOS experience I think.

5. Block Fortress II. It's not here yet, not even announced... BUT C'MON Foursaken, your Twitter pretty much s its existence lol.

Non-gaming apps...

Autodesk Sketchbook. It's so much awesome for drawing.
The Bible app... *ducks* hahahaa crams so many versions, books, devotions, notes, etc. into one spot.
Snap seed for photo editing, gotta have something to do on the deserted island lol.
Evernote. My brain is stored in this app, notes, ideas, dreams, writings, etc.
Interval Timer. Need this to help with working out and staying active

Oh, you better believe I'll have my Bible app. I use Accordance, since I've dropped $1000+ into modules for it. My undergrad and graduate degrees are in ministry, so it's totally justified!

2016 GOTY Candidates: Super Tribes -- Crashlands -- Open Bar -- Tomb of the Mask
GC: Jerutix -- Grace and Peace

The World Ends With You
Dragon Quest VIII
Legend of Heroes Trails In The Sky
Final Fantasy IX
Ace Attorney Trilogy

I like RPGs I think

I have minecraft and final fantasy vii on console or they would've made the list. I do have final fantasy ix on console but mobile version is way better!
