Many thing I disagree with, but its all down to personal preference, not really much point arguing.

However I would like to know how jetpack joyride is voted best game ever, but is a runner up in the arcade category and casual category? lol

And battlebears? Really?

I lol'd at this list.
Creator of this list can't possibly be more than 8 years old.
Anomaly has better graphics than IB 2... yeah ok.
Where's my water, most innovative? When it copied the idea from countless other games like Feed Me Oil, Cut the Rope, and other flash games? Since when was copying an innovative idea considered innovative?
Zombie Gunship, best simulation? Yes it's very useful to simulate a futuristic spaceship blasting a line of zombies that follow the same path. Yup very realistic and definitely belongs in the simulation category. Lol.
Jetpack = best app ever? Lmao. App? So I'm assuming the creator of this list never used cydia, apple store, itunes, ipod, phone, GPS, contact list, weather, or safari before.

The underhyped: JuBeat, Drawn: The Painted Tower, Beatrider, Phoenix Wright, Broken Sword, Cut the Rope, Paladog, Isotope, Crystal War, Scarlett

You guys gotta understand that anyone could vote for apps. The site didn't make this list, but lots of people probably were casual gamers who dont know of good games...

Oh, I didn't know that. The list makes a lot more sense now. Well, it doesn't look like the future of hardcore gaming bodes well.
