Poll: Favorite Genre/Category of Games

This is a poll to determine the overall favorite genre of games for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

I will post the genre and example games within that genre and I want to see what TA members would vote. (I apologize in advance if there is already such a thread. I did a search of the forums but found nothing. )

EDIT: It would also be great if you posted why you chose your answer. It would help in determining what makes that category good.

Hey it would be helpful if you could create a poll with several genres for people to choose from (e.g. shooter, adventure, puzzles, etc.).

Lol, sorry to the above posters. It creates the thread before I finished doing the polls. A bit silly, but it's how it works.

Just edited the original post to ask for members to explain why they chose, just so others can see why that category is 'better' than the others!

I picked Puzzle games because Action and Strategy games are better on other systems.

Oh Spiffy you little devil.

It would be even MORE helpful if Apple got the genres right, then.

I pulled those example games from the app store in the first place.

Everyone knows that Apple is INCAPABLE of making a mistake...right?
