It depends on the game. Certainly there's lots of throwaways, but then there are longer games and/or games that don't really have an ending and that you play all the time. I've almost certainly put more time into Disc Drivin' and Ascension than I have put into any other games ever, on any platform. Just depends on what you like. I'm not sure how many hours I've put into them, but it's certainly a rather large number. Also there's games like Incoboto. That game is pretty fantastic. Also Death Rally. I put many hours into that. Etc, etc.

So, yeah, I'd like a Vita, but there are great games for iOS as well, and ones that aren't throwaway. If you like board games, iOS is hard to beat for one.

ps. oops sorry somebody has just posted here before, I'm sorry I'm just too excited..


same reason here, but most people on iOS don't realize it just yet.
I think people do realize it but they like saying oh well I only paid 99c for it. I dont know I mean to each there own, I definately played some awesome games on IOS but those are rare occasions. It's hard for me now to even think about playing a game on my phone now....

It's interesting that some long time TA posters are in the same boat as me - feeling bored or finding iOS gaming stale. I recognize so many people from this thread from over in the main iOS gaming section and it goes to show that while iOS games fill a void, they can't fill the void for portable games that are more than casual romps.

Tbh, it feels more like iOS has stopped filling a void it once filled. Now everything almost everything has to be casual or freemium or people won't buy it. Look at Mass Effect Infiltrator: That type of game shouldn't try to go the casual route. what iOS is lacking lately is a good mix of casual and hardcore games, so I have to look else where to fill that void.

I agree, but someone or something is telling all these companies that the way to go with IOS is casual (99c) or freemium. Maybe that is the way to go with IOS even though I wish it wasnt, but maybe us people that like deeper console type quality are not the mainstream these companies are going after anymore... to each there own I guess. I still love my ipad2 for browsing the net!

I agree. I use my ipad2 more for reading and surfing the net now. Its funny to me because iOS has me looking for a deeper portable experience and really lead me to the vita.

Count me in as well. I actually got a new iPad 2 for Christmas since my wife "borrows" my original and used it for following the Vita launch. I still use my iPad and iPod Touch, but not for playing games. Fantastic devices still, just for other uses.
