Aggregated iphone game charts (ratings/revenue)?!

Hi community,

I am writing a master thesis on "mobile gaming experience". Therefore I run some tests with iphone/ipod games. Right now I need to choose which games to test.

I am looking for an aggregation of:
- most sold games
- best rated games
- etc.

All I can find so far is Apple's 2008 press release and a dozen blogs with subjective top-10 ratings.

Any idea where else to look?

That's what I am doing right now. But the dataset is very heterogenous. Maybe I will just stick with popular and succesfull games from 2008, where I have more sources avaliable.

Then again, I would have to recruit my subjects with a screener who ensures, that they don't know the games yet.

Ah, game research can be a real pain in the ***
