Internet multiplayer games played with specific friends??

What multiplayer games can be played over the internet (NOT local wi-fi), where you can choose specifically who you want to play with?

It doesn't matter what kind of game. I'm open to ALL suggestions.
So it could be a racing game, or a drawing/Pictionary game like Charadium (which I know does support internet-play with chosen friends via Plus+), or even a turn-based game like Chess With Friends (which I know also supports internet-play with chosen friends, via entires in your Address Book).

Any ideas, anyone...?

UPDATE:
I'm gonna constantly update this first post with all answers that are put in this thread, so if you know of any not listed here, please reply. Thanks.

Thanks again. I'll update the original post to contain all answers that are posted here.
It would be great to have this as some kinda definitive list, as I'm sure a lot of other people would appreciate seeing what games they can play with their friends, wherever they are...

There has been a Tetris Clone which had this feature aswell, but this game has been banned from the App Store.

Thanks. Do you remember the name of it anyway, so I can list it for the people who did manage to grab it before it disappeared?

Depict uses OpenFeint to deliver a pretty close approximation to an Xbox Live interaction with friends.

You see when they come online, you can add friends within the game, and you can invite people to play offline and online.

Plus, you know... it's fun. And free. You can't really go wrong.

Hope you like it!
