Hardly worth taking the bait I'll probably regret it but emulators (thousands of games) and onlive more than make up for that.

Also as an afterthought there's a lot of the games you listed that are on Android anyway I won't even bother trying to work out how many it would probably take all day but I've definitely seen Avengers Initiative and chaos rings on Google Play.

Pft. Crap thread.

You know, I was just thinking. If there was a zombie apocoplypse, Ozzy Osbourne would probably be safe from everyone but zombie hunters.

I've evolved to having both Android/Apple. I can even be put them together within a sentence.
But yea, some of those games are on GP.

These people are right some of these big titles are on Android as well. What I'm thinking is why the heck anyone would go through all this trouble just to bash android? Android doesn't have a bad marketplace. Not saying it's great, but it's average.

I wouldn't say the iTunes store is great. Lack of meaningful reviews makes sorting out the chaff impossible without resources like TA, for example.

I wouldn't care if the reviews were gone completely, the content is still pretty good. I have a friend who's just come to iOS from Android and he's amazed at the quality of the games on offer. He's even been downloading the same games he used to play on Android, only now they're not plagued with hideous full screen ads and annoying banners. Oh, and they work too; compatibility used to be a big issue on his last phone.

1. Android has quite a few of those.
2. A lot of those games look like they're there just for the sake of adding more to the list. I played most of them and feel like Android isn't missing out on a big chunk of them...
3. Many Android users don't use their devices primarily for games, just in case you weren't aware of that...

But I do think I'm missing out on games like World Ends With You, which didn't get unbelievably good reviews.
The only other ones I feel like I missed out on are Cubed Rally Redline, Infinity Blade Series, and True Skate.
