Best games

So I got 75$ in itunes gift cards and want to spend about 65$ of it on games, which games should I get? I like pretty much any type of games, and it would be preferable if there is a lite version that I can play to try it.

Brothers in Arms is a good one. So is I Love Katamari. Rolando and Rolando 2 definitely. Assassin's Creed; Altair's Chronicles. If you like 3D platform Adventure games at all, get Otto-Matic: The Alien Invasion. I'd also recommend Boomer's Sky Fishing, just because it's awesome. Best Online games are F.A.S.T, Dinosmash Online, and Bomber Online, IMO.

Save some money for upcoming games like Gang$tar: West Coast Hustle, and the FPS from NgMoco. I must also mention that Resident Evil 4 and 5 are coming to an appstore near you. I hope the ports of Duke Nukem and THPS2 haven't been canceled.

Recent purchases: Pac man CE, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, Mecho Wars, and Chaos Rings.
Upcoming Games I plan to get: Splinter Cell, GoF2

These lists are a little bit overwhelming for a person just starting out getting games.

First, you have to identify what kind of games interest you.

Adventure, RPG?
Sports?
FPS?
TD?
Line guided?
iPhone specific?

Then decide if you want all of one genre or a mix?

The worst thing you can do is follow other people's lists. Because there is almost certainly a game on other people's lists that you won't like.

Currently Playing: Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, Summoner Wars

Good advice. So much of what we think is good or great is personal preference. What type of games do you usually like?

Although obvious, try the lite versions. Too often people get caught up in the excitement and find out no matter how good the video looked or the reviews say it is, it just isn't for you. In fact, I'm almost at the point that I won't buy anything if I can't try a lite version first.
