What Type Of iPhone Game Interests You The Most?

Just answer honestly, and if you feel like it, share what game type you picked and why. Or if you chose other, what other type of iPhone game do you like?

EDIT: I know I spelled Role Playing Games wrong... if a moderator could change that, I would be grateful.

I have two favorites, Action and RPG games. I didn't add Action to the list, as it would probably just DOMINATE the polls, and it was too broad of a category, as 50% of the games on the App Store are Action games.

You missed quite a few major categories.

I like a nice open-world game like GTA, but when it comes down to my absolute favorite games, they always turn out to be RPG's or something similar to an RPG.

Voted for RPG, though I play them in pair with Chess (Fritz), Card and board games.

I voted RPG, but it has to be an original game thats not overpriced (if grinding is a key part of it, it does not deserve to exist ), otherwise dual-stick shooters and casual games

I also forgot to add Adventure games. I've spent too many hours of my life playing random LucasArts adventure games, as well as a couple by Sierra and Revolution Studios, which is really starting to be one of my favorite Adventure game makers, as well as the Chzo Mythos which is an awesome freeware Point-and-Click Horror game series.

And I need a good action game some times. Stuff like GTA, NYZ (Which is coming out soon, just ended the beta stage), BIA 2, etc.
