Games and Apps you're absolutely sick of seeing

Games:
Connect Three
Puzzle games that claim not to be tetris but really are just that, tetris.
Racing games where you're doing nothing but a really long left turn.
Crash Kart

Apps:
Fart
Relax and Meditation apps featuring crappy looping MIDI files of babbling brooks that sound like an octagenarian gargling mouthwash.

The paid apps that claim to be helpful and maybe they are, but only once.

For example, I saw an app that tells you how old your dog is in dog years. It was $1. Yeah, it could be helpful, but who would pay money to use something once and never need again?

I think there are enough Sudoku apps, but some other games like match 3 games should keep coming. Take a look at Trism. If Apple said there were too many match three games for the app store and decided not to accept any more of them, there would be no Trism. It's one of the most popular games and you have to admit (if you have it), it's a pretty fun match 3 game. The more of one type of game there is, the better they will be forced to become. (Now that Trism is out, developers will try to compete with it by making improved match 3 games.)

Sick of

I agree with the "i" app titles....

I'm also sick of seeing poker apps tbh. Especially when I saw that darn poker game for $50. It makes me want to throw up!

Play the opening like a book, the middlegame like a magician, and the endgame like a machine!

Virtual Animal apps, Wack-a-"xyz" apps, card games,
games I could play with my own hand and wouldn't anyway (Rock, Paper Scissor), and all the above mentioned.
it's funny cause they'll update more than the major titles. Who the hell cares about a stability fix for Rock,Paper Scissor?

I get sick of checking in to my app source only to find blatant regurgitations
of flip phone quality apps. I wish apple would find a fair way to limit these submissions. perhaps that would encourage devs to make something that sets their development apart.

I think it's because December was a great month for major titles releases, and I expected an explosion of hyped tiltles for January.

I really can't wait till games like Hero of Sparta"s quality are considered the lower end titles as a standard......then this device will be a gaming console. Then you'll see television comercials from the developers promoting their games for the iphn/iptch.
