A really excellent JRPG. Not these "well it's good for an iPhone game" type of RPG's.

Yeah I got my hopes up for mass effect...

A good online fps would be nice as well.

As much as I like Bubble Bobble (I have an actual PCB set and a JAMMA interface for it in my garage ) I doubt I'd play it on my iPod. I just don't like virtual D-Pads, and this game needs good control.

(Checks) The theme & sounds for the C64 version are in SID Player, if that's any consolation.

Back on topic, I'm still waiting for a truly good FPS on the system. The two IMHO are Doom Resurrection (which really isn't an FPS) and Wolf 3D Classic, which I've already played enough (and prefer having real buttons ala my GBASP...)

As for JRPGs, have you tried Vay? I've still got it on Sega CD, I don't know how the new one compares, but they look very similar.
