Default Lack of quality games lately

It's been 2 years now since I really started paying attention to the weekly influx of games that iOS has to offer. Over that time it seems like week after week we've been treated to at least 2-4 must have games. This year has been great for iOS games with such releases as FTL, Wayward Souls, Battleheart: Legacy, Darkin, 99 Bricks, Hearthstone, Leo's Fortune, OTTTD, and Bug Heroes 2. Seems like I was having a problem keeping my spending under control for the past 2 years as there were a number of games each week to warrant throwing down the dough. I kind of feel like we've had a serious lull lately though. Instead of having 2-4 must have games every week, it seems like there have been 1 maybe 2 games a week that seem worthwhile. Anyone else been thinking the same thing?

Of the games you name, one came out just 2 weeks ago, and another just 3. Last week we had VVVVVV and Fluid SE, which made it a pretty strong week in my book. It's really just your perception and taste if anything.

I agree with Royce. There are so many different games that have been released lately-some that one would find high quality and others that simply would not.

Your statement which is very respectful is also generic. What makes a quality game? The audio/visuals? Replayability factor? Genre? Amount of levels? 2d vs 3d? etc...
