Top Ten iPhone/iPod Games of ALL TIME (Now with a complete list!)

Hello all! Seeing IGN's top 25 list made me think about what my favorite iPhone/iPod games of all time were.

So, I decided to make a top 10 list.

I started by compiling a list of the best games on my iPod. I ended up with about 30 games, all of great quality. Trust me, it was difficult comparing the games from entirely different genres, but I managed to come up with ten that I absolutely love. Organizing them by quality was an even more difficult undertaking, but after much deliberation, I have finally compiled a list that I am proud of.

So here's how this is going to go:

Starting tomorrow, September 9, I will post the games, one by one, from worst to best. Every day, I will post one game, and my reasons for choosing it. On September 19, I'll have a complete list which I will compile into this post along with the honorable mentions. Of course, if you disagree, I welcome you to post your thoughts.

AT LAST, THE COMPLETED LIST!

#10: Tilt to Live
#9: Rolando 2: The Quest for the Golden Orchid
#8: Helsing's Fire
#7: Peggle
#6: Super QuickHook
#5: Meteor Blitz
#4: Monkey Island 2: Special Edition
#3: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
#2: Jet Car Stunts

#1: Space Miner: Space Ore Bust
Quite simply the best the App Store has to offer. I could say that Space Miner is a combination between Asteroids and an RPG, but that wouldnít do it justice. Instead, I urge everyone reading this to check it out right now, if you donít already have it. Itís very hard to describe what makes Space Miner so great. Is it the highly polished graphics? The hilarious story? The perfectly tuned upgrade-focused gameplay? The rush you get when the banjo music starts playing, and you canít wait to kick some robobutt? A combination of all of these factors soon made it apparent to me that this was the greatest game I had played since getting my iPod.

Honorable Mentions:

geoDefense
Land Air Sea Warfare
I Dig It Expeditions
Sword & Poker
Carcassonne
Labyrinth 2
Dark Nebula: Episode 2
Snail Mail

There's going to be impending flaming. If you do pick Phoenix Wright for number 1 (which you should), there's going to be flaming. And if you don't, well, there's going to be quite a bit of flaming.

I just noticed that that was my 4000th post... I'm not quite sure if that was a waste of such a post or not... Oh well.

Until the Great Phoenix Wright Debate is brought into question. Then it becomes every man for himself.

Don't worry, I will.

...hey, are you hinting at something? No matter how hard you try, I will not reveal whether PW is on the list.
