Games that use the Microphone?

All I can think of is:
  • Leaf Trombone
  • Ocarina

Any more?

There's some racing game where you blow in it to make your car go. I don't think it's good but it uses the mic...

Do you mean Zoom Zoom? You control the car by the sound of your voice.

Well most of the people who are in for gaming have the Touch. And since the Touch dose not have a built in mic it makes no sense to input that function into a game, because many people won't buy a mic. And until some sweet game comes out that truly utilises(gawd i cant spell this word) the mic in the actual gameplay and starts a new trend of mic infused games, we wont see many games that use the mic.

I just bought an apple mic/earphone set, but only for the music controls. Apple should include this with Touch's instead of regular headphones.
