What games do you think would kick ass on the mac Tablet

I'm thinking any decent console game. I'll go with modern warfare 2 or some half-life 2, idk. I'm just interested.

The full on C&C: Red Alert 3. The game would be so much easier to play on a gigantic touchscreen. And I would feel like god sending my minions to their doom. Oh, speaking of which, Black and White would be great.

Roller Coaster Tycoon 3! its a great game but the big problem is that it uses so much processor power that it even runs slow on some computers. if someone was able to scale down enough on the fx while still making it a great looking and great to play game i would love it.

None...

Honestly, a 7-10 inch tablet would feel awkward in two hands for gaming. I don't except it to have much games. The iphone feels great in the hand. A tablet? No. I really don't think apps will be a big feature for the tablet like it is on the idevice.

Red Conquest!

Or maybe Galcon like it was programmed . . . 30 inputs (if the Apple tablet is going to support more than 5 inputs at once).

I disagree--It's silly to think that there wouldn't be much of an interest in apps for the tablet. I think playing games on a 7-inch screen would be great! Rumor is that several devs are preparing higher resolution demos for the new tablet size(s). If the new tablet is like a "big iPod Touch" I think it would do very well, and there would be a lot of apps and games for it.
Guess we'll find out in January...or not!

The pinballs by Gameprom. It seems that they are preparing them for Macs and will give them away for free in January. Maybe the first iDevice apps that would "grow up & expand". Could be a hint for a tablet too…

The Tablet sounds really high-tech and expensive.
