If IOS came with a game preinstalled...

If IOS came with a game preinstalled, what do you think it would be? First, what would Apple would pick? Second, what would you pick?
I think Apple would choose something extremely mainstream and crappy like Candy Crush or Angry Birds. It would probably would be Candy Crush because Apple would make a ton more money.
If I would choose a game it would be either Punch Quest, Square ball, Cut the Rope, Slayin, or Ski Safari. I wouldn't put in a game that was preinstalled if it would be too challenging for idiots.

Apple would choose either Clash of Clans, Candy Crush Saga, Boom Beach, or Simpsons Tapped Out. I would choose something from Foursaken. Heroes and Castles, Bug Heroes 2, or Block Fortress: War.

Im pretty sure Apple's choice would be the Infinity Blade titles.

My pick is EPOCH 1 and 2. For reason that these involve a little bit of violence, but zero gore. These titles also showcase what the device is capable of in terms of visuals, which is always a major selling point.

Solitaire?

It's not a totally crazy idea considering Apple released that poker game when the app store first came out.

If you had asked me a year ago, I woulda said Angry Birds or Infinity Blade.

Now, I'd say Threes!, Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, or Infinity Blade.

Threes would be a good one.

I'd say Oceanhorn or Swordigo. This ones would be great.

Most of the suggestions here are way too big. There's no way that Apple would force users to lose that much storage space to a game they might not even want.

Any game they included would probably be some simple puzzle/card game like Solitaire (as someone mentioned above), Freecell and Minesweeper that used to come with Windows.

I'm thinking games like Threes, 2048, Trainyard or Sokoban
