Mass "What should I get?" Thread 2011

Hey guys,

To control the amount of threads being created, all asking the same question, this is a general mass collection of "what games should I get with my $___ gift card?".

Mods will be linking to this thread and locking any thread created that falls into this category or they may just merge the new threads into here. Feel free to report any threads that need to be locked and linked or merged to here

So recommend games you guys would suggest to people, or ask which games would be good for you and list out your guidelines for genres.

Good idea.

I'll just copy+paste what I posted in another thread as it has most of the games I would recommend.

Pick up and play games: Boost 3D(others such as Doodle Jump, Geospark, Minigore, Mr. AaahH!!, Angry Birds or Canabalt are good as well)

Racing games: NFS: Shift( Real Racing is a decent alternative, I wouldn't recommend Asphalt 5, I would recommend NFS:U if you want an arcade racer though)

Match 3 games:
Match 3D Flick Puzzle, Treasures of Montezuma 2, bitFlip, Azkend, Dragon Portals

Side-scrolling platformers:
Plushed, Soosiz(Honorable mentions: Spybot Chronicles, Bounce On)

Dual stick shooters: Meteor Blitz, Minigore, Alive4 ever, Isotope.

Side scrolling beat em/shoot em' ups: OMG Pirates, Inkvaders, Zombieville USA(though I personally believe Inkvaders is better)

RPGS: Inotia 2, Seed(FREE)

Tower Defense: Defender Chronicles, The Creeps, Fieldrunners, Zombie Attack! 2, Elemental Monster TD. Other good ones if you're looking for a challenge is geoDefense and geoDefense Swarm

Other recommendations:
Speed Forge Extreme, Jet Car Stunts, MiniSquadron, Peggle, iblast Moki, GOALS! Pro, Harbor Havoc 3D, Drop7

Point and click(touch) adventure games:
All Fridges are Psychotic, Beneath a Steel Sky


Some of these have lite version so you can try those out before you buy

If you got an extra buck, Cartoon Wars Gunner is very fun!

How good is Plushed? I have an urge to buy it but have heard negative comments about it. Also are there any games like minigore but with more unlockables?

Wow what a treat! I was dreading the amount of threads that Christmas would generate - thanks mods!

Everyone asking "I got an iTouch now what?" should look here:

and the associated comments. The staff did a wonderful job rounding everything up.

But then again worth varies from people to people. Gold to me may be junk to you and vice versa. You can read read through the game thread, find some reviews and maybe even vids.
