In Which Orientation would you Rather

Play an iPhone game in?

Portrait or Landscape?

For me it's portrait because that's just how I naturally hold my iPhone

EDIT:I forgot to mention that this is supposed to be for games that support both landscape and portrait. which one would you prefer if the game offered both

Entirely depends on what type of game I'm playing.
Wouldn't want to play Real Racing (when it's out) in Portrait and I wouldn't want to play Tetris in Landscape.

Surely the App being played dictates this to some extent...

It really depends on the game. Some games work much better in portrait, others in landscape. I'd rather the game use whatever orientation naturally fits the game's format.

Portrait, it feels more natural.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

Landscape for me then! There's more to grip on to!
