Games for newer devices only?

I just got a new iPod touch 4g and I'm looking for games that take advantage of the processor and graphics on the newer devices.

I'm looking at RAGE HD, Fifa 11 and Dodonpachi resurrection, but what else is out there right now?

Doodle jump, touch grind, Modern combat 2, any retina game which are a LOT of games now
Modern combat also uses gyro...

Thanks, but those games run on older generation devices too. I'm not just talking about games with support for the retina display. I'm looking for games that only run on the newer devices. For example, Fifa 11, or Dodonpachi resurrection, as stated above, only run on the new devices. They didn't run on my 2g iPod, but they run on 4g... that's what I'm looking for.

You're not going to find many of those because there really aren't many that exist. Devs don't make many 4th gen only games because that means they're putting themselves at a disadvantage by not being able to sell their games to owners of older devices. Retina display and gyroscope support are as good as you're gonna find. RAGE HD is really the exception to the rule.

Harry Potter should definitely be put into heavy consideration for your situation.

But I'm not really a Harry Potter fan at all. Would that game be really good for a person like me who has never saw any of the movies or read any of the books?

There aren't many games for new devices only, but plenty of games take advantage of the increased capabilities and retina display. This thread keeps a list of most of the games which support retina display.
