Games that made your final cut since release 6+ months ago (Post)

Hello all,

I thought I'd start a thread to see which games people are still actively playing since purchased 6 months ago or longer. Do not post any new/recent releases.

I'm very picky in the games I keep on my iphone and my policy is if I dont play it much or not really enjoy it much, I must delete it. Needless to say, I just deleted Rage as it was a mini game that became boring fast, not to mention the 700+ MB it held.

I've downloaded many many games since I purchased my first iPhone 3g. All in all, only a select few seem to have a hold on me and I can never get tired of them or delete them for that matter. Here are mines:

I don't know what it is with this game, but I just can't get enough of it. There is this sheer frenzy and adrenalin with the game play that keeps me coming back for more since a year ago.

Yes, it's not a complete football game, but that is the exact reason why I love it. The visuals are great, smooth as butter animation and the Euphoria engine never cease to show me something new. I can't wait for Vengeance.

CoD: Zombies-
This game started with one map and grew to now four nice ones. The tilt controls here are spot on and there is nothing more fun for me to see than the reaction of an online team mate when a zombie is creeping up behind him. Makes me laugh every time.

Real Racing-
The title says it all, After so many has joined the racing genre, this game still blows them all away. Salivating at the thoughts of RR2

This little wonder never made it to the top 10 in the app store. Shame really as it deserves it much more than most of GL's junk.

The only gameloft game I really like. Having online play is just such a necessity as it's always fun.

The updates in pocket god are really what keeps me interested as I got tired of it a long time ago.

That's my list of MY all time great games I can't do without. What's yours?

The Fallen (great ones that got deleted):

Yes this little game was great, however the fact that rockstar never added retina display to a game that really would have benefited from it a whole lot since everything is... so tiny, and no multitasking is simply not acceptable. Oh, and the driving was too sensitive also.

Nice way of copying MW2 GL. But the reason I got rid of this is first TOUCH CONTROLS only blows. No accelerometer support and GL can't expect me to stand up for 1hr or 2 just to use the OVERLY SENSITIVE gyro. Not happening! Second, way to many times the game spawns you right in front of the enemy and knowing GL, that issue will NEVER get fixed. Once they release a game, they move on to making another one.

I think what I'm noticing is that some of the earlier iDevice games, seems to fare better in quality and fun than many of the recent new stuff.
