Optimum game lineup

I have a 16 GB iPhone 6 and try to have what I like to call an optimum game lineup. Right now the games I have on my phone are:

Implosion - Never Lose Hope
Crashlands
Quadropus Rampage
Tennis Champs Returns
Heroes and Castles 2
Lost Socks: Naughty Brothers
Templar Battleforce RPG
BADLAND 2
Dungelot: Shattered Lands
Dust: AET
Wayward Souls
I keep Having This Dream
EPOCH. 2
Geometry Wars 3
LONEWOLF
Furdemption
The Enchanted Cave 2

Wondering if you guys try to keep the best games possible on your iPhones and what those must have games are

Yeah having a 16gb memory size is a bugger. I try limit each game to be 100mb ish and anything thats about 1gb it can't stay on very long. My choice of games a bit different, I guess I keep favourites in one of 3 folders- 'Top playable', 'Top new games', and 'Top games'. Which is the optimum?

My "old" (a 6 Plus) iPhone was 16 GB and I had to limit games.
Then I moved to a 6s 64 GB: I like keeping all my game ready-to-play.

I think no matter size your iDevice is, being invested in iOS games the way we are, it's not enough. I literally spend a couple of hours a week staring at the settings menu of my 128 GB iPhone figuring out what's not worth keeping in the long run.

I have an 8gb 4s. Old one broke. So I basically have 5gb total and about 3-4 to use for games. I would have to delete everything to play A Bards Tale, which is sad. Having MHFU on my phone takes up 1 of those gigs itself. I envy you all lol

I feel your pain. Before I got my 16 GB iPhone 6 I had an 8 GB iPhone 4.

Ah well at least I wasn't alone; it brings me joy knowing someone got ahead of the misery that is drive space maintence lol. Hope! What I wouldn't do for an Air 2....

Dude lol...this is so true (mine is only 64gb though). I think I've deleted Real Racing 3 and re installed it about 137 times. Takes up space, but it's fun. I play it, then I hate it, so I clear up 3gb of memory...until I see a cool car drive by, then I re install it.

I think I have a disorder
