"not best" ipod games in apple commercial

i keep seeing ipod commercials on TV, but the games that they feature are not always the best or have the best graphics. some are good but i think that apple should actually look at what they have in the app store and choose some better titles to feature, or at least ones with better graphics

here are the games they show:

Top Gun
Real Racing
Monster Trucks Nitro
3D Roller coaster Rush
Touch Hockey
Homerun Battle 3D
Tiger Woods PGA Tour
Slope Rider
Bugdom 2
Aqua Moto Racing
Finger Foos
2XL Motocross
Rolando
SGN Golf
Fast and Furious: Pink Slip
Nanosaur 2
Platypus
Wave Blazer
Low Grav Racer
Touch Sports Tennis '09
Burning Tires 3D
Touchgrind
Drum Kit
Flick Fishing
Snail Mail

What games do you guys think should be featured on the ads?

they'd want apps that would catch someone's eye when shown for only a second or two. Touchgrind would be good, rolando, flick fishing, top gun, real racing

Most of the games with "Good Graphics" are the one's that use Virtual controls like a virtual control stick and buttons. I think Apple is trying to promote "fun" with games that have inovative controls, rather than good graphics.

I think they also want people to notice its accelerometer capabilites, so some flying and racing games should be included

I think they are trying to highlight games that are universally appealing to all gamers and that can be recognized as quality in a very short period of time. Most of those games are performing recognizable tasks, if I saw a 3 second snipit of Spider or Eliss I would be like WTF?

That being said they should feature Jet Car Stunts, Labyrinth 2, and Eliminate
