Future iPad owners - what games are you picking up?

With all of these new games hitting the App Store today for the iPad, I'm REALLY struggling to decide on what I want to get on Day 1. It's tough because a lot of my favorite iPhone games are now upgraded to "HD".

Really, I want to see how some of the standard iPhone made apps fare on the iPad. However, that being said, I'm really leaning towards getting:

NOVA HD
Asphalt 5 HD
Real Racing HD
Raging Thunder 2 HD
NFS Shift HD

As you can see, I'm a racing Junkie and can't wait to see what some of these will look like. I'm really trying to dwindle the list down to just one or 2 from the list above since they are more expensive.

So how about you, what's on your buy list?

Hi,

For posters Random Guy and goiMot, the title of the thread is "Future iPad owners - what games are you picking up?"

If you have no plans to buy an Ipad, why post?

For me, it will be a month or two till I buy one so I have not made any decisions to apps or games to buy.

The Ipad version of Battle For Wesnoth looks to be one but from ther, I am not sure.

Probably C&C Red Alert HD, Minigore HD. Haven't looked at the full list of games at launch since I'm not getting one right away.

That's great and I respect your choice, but I was hoping to hear posts from others like myself who are getting and iPad this weekend.

They're trolls, that's why. They feel like they need to post even when they have nothing to contribute to the topic being discussed. (It's annoying, but I think they are also just young children.)

Anyway, I am not going to get an iPad until the 3G version is available. I am looking forward to NOVA and the pinball games from gameprom. I was also looking at "Pianist Pro" from MooCow--I have their Pianist app for the iPhone, and the youtube video of Pianist Pro looks awesome. (It's not a game, I know...but it looks really good!)

Shredder Chess HD maybe Plants and Zombies HD.
I have Shredder but not P&Z
I'm torn having to re-buy my apps so it will be interesting to see how small versions display as 2x
The big question for me is
Will HDs play better, larger?

on the 3g wait
