Best Of Thread

So I need the opinion of the TouchArcade comunity to help me out. I am looking for the "best of" the below categories. I am looking for about 5-12 games per catergory and I would love to hear everyones opinion. The categories are as follows:

Zombie Games
Shooter (Dual Stick)
Shooter (Everything Else)
Shooter (FPS)
Match 3's
Space Themed Games
Board Games
Card Games
Random (Vuvuzela vs. Zombies/Enviro Bear Random)
Sports (Soccer related)
Sports (Football related)
Sports (Baseball Related)
Sports (everything else)
Best Doodle Themed Games

Or if you would rather not pick a particular genre, just tell me your top 10 favorite games. I am doing a survey for PR purposes and I plan to write about my findings, so your input and participation are greatly appreciated!

I also have noticed that there are too many "best *insert genre* on appstore" threads so i figured this would be the thread that combined them all, to keep things organized So the thread name should actually be Mass "Best Of" Thread.

You are not pretty enough to be that stupid.

Hey pal, not really got time to write out a huge list. But this is a good source to start with for ideas.

And my favorite iPhone games ever:

1. Spider: Secret of Bryce Manor- cool storyline unraveled in innovative game.
2. Zen Bound- Great graphics but relaxing mood
3. GTA: Chinatown Wars- a gigabyte of open-world madness
4. Eliss- A frantic multi-touch challenge.
5. Enviro-Bear 2010- Possibly the weirdest sense of humor in a game yet.
6. Canabalt- A rival to Doodle Jump, it becomes insanely addictive.
7. Touchgrind- Another hit by Illusion Labs, it's the best and original finger skateboard app on the App store.
8. Jet Car Stunts- An underappreciated racer, race against the clock as you rocket and drift your way through beautifully shaded... geometric shapes?
9. Samurai Way of the Warrior- Underrated, it combines beautiful Japanese art with violent hack-and-slash gameplay. I think it's free as of now, so get it.
10. Sway - A cool physics game with some undeniably cute characters (no, I'm not gay,) it's a fun ride even if it's REALLY SHORT.
