Retina display games wishlist.

What games do you have or want to pick up that you wish for higher res graphics?

Give some reasonable ones ie: games that have ipad versions so high res assets already exist.

So ya my list.

- GT racing
- Bruce Lee
- 9 innings 2011
- GTA chinatown wars
- Warpgate

Retina display is great and all, but do I really want to start most of these games over again, from the beginning? Not really. Like a lot of people, people who upgraded to an iphone 4, my original save states for these games exist on another device. In my case, they are all on my 3rd generation ipod touch. For every game that gets a Retina display update, I will have to start playing the game all over again, from the beginning.

I especially don't want to start GTA:Chinatown Wars all the way over from the beginning again. Dear god, not again.

Your save states are backed up in iTunes so you don't lose them when upgrading.

The Retina display becomes a problem when your favorite game(s) aren't updated, and you stop playing them because they're ugly now. That happened for me with PES.. I was playing all the time until I got the i4, now I don't play at all.

I vote for PES, and Zombie Infection (because I didn't finish it and it's like the only GL game they didn't bother to update.) Oh and NHL2K would be great too. Thanks!

I setup my iPhone as a new device, mainly because I wanted to start fresh. I had my iPod backup, but who knows what JB-related scraps are in there. Sucks having to start over in my games, but at least I'm going back to some I haven't played in awhile [though I haven't touched GTA yet, think I'm gonna wait [[and hope]] for a RD update]

Many of us are just now getting into iPhone/Touch gaming, so yes this does matter to a large segment of people. Adding Retina display support to your app will certainly increase the life of the product and increase sales.
