A Sharps "King of Dragon Pass", MDickies "Wrestling Revolution Pro" and Trilobytes "The 7th Guest". I think those games speak for themselves.

Would kill to see "Master Of Orion" ported. I'll buy "Baldurs Gate" as soon as it arrives on the Mac App Store, as I dont own an iPad.

From what I've played, my favourite ports this year have to be

Lostwinds 2
Crazy Taxy
Carmageddon

Vice City hasn't been added due to it's contant crashing

But the best port of the year will have to go to the walking dead...at Christmas, I'm going to buy myself an iTunes gift card just to buy that entire game

I'm a sucker for console ports. I'd have to Vice City is the best. Great games = great ports. They could have made the controls tilt controls and it STILL would have be a great iOS game.

Other than that I'd have to say FFIV, The Bard's Tale (plus original three for free), Soul Calibur, and the Marathon trilogy are great ports.

For me, it's definitely Baldur's Gate!

Yes, there's a few interface issues, and the Devs are working on an update, soon to be released that should fix the most glaring ones, but I'm still having the best iPad gaming experience yet with this game.

This is the first really deep RPG on this platform, where everything is just right on point. Acting, writing, dialog, choices that actually matter, huge world, quests galore and fun ones too, I could go on and on...

Yes, it may be hard to get to grips with if you're a newbie to the series, or indeed hardcore western RPG's, due to the relatively steep learning curve, if you persists through the first hour or so, you're really going to get the best experiences in this niche of gaming ever.

Baldur's Gate followed closely by Vice City, for me. Already logged in a dozen or so hours in each, even though Dragonborn came out on X360 around the same time. Depth of gameplay is something (with a rare few exceptions) that has been lacking on iOS prior to this week.

Without a doubt, easily the best port this year was Battle Academy. The game has a superb amount of content for both single and multiplayer. It's basically a more complex advance wars in 3D. Hopefully this paves the way for more serious wargames on the platform.

Battle Academy hands down the best port this year. Don't forget The Last Express, which surprisingly ages charmingly well on iOS. Another overlooked port is Ghost Trick which I enjoyed immensely. I would say this is one year where ports shine much brighter than iOS original games, at least for me.

I shall say that this is sad, and a cause for concern.
