survey~~~where do you find the games you like?

hey there,

i was curious about how you guys pick games. i only browse the top 200 chart. if all the players did so, then the chart wouldn't have any change. so i am wondering in what way you guys pick games.

Toucharcade honestly. If theres a game worth playing it'll at least get a mention here. Active forums and dev participation are a big plus.

I glance at the top charts once in a while, but only to see how a certain game or games are doing

I mostly just hang around on TouchArcade, checking the Upcoming Games section as well as the front page. Anything worth playing usually shows up somewhere in there. Otherwise a ton of people talk about it on the forums, I get intrigued, check out the game, it seems interesting, and I give it a go.

There's been some instances where I've gotten a game to review and it turned out to be better than I originally expected, so I guess that counts too.

Yeah, pretty much what somerandomdude said. Check the TA forums every once in a while, and ur bound to come across a good game here and then.

And yeah. I got to review eternal legacy due to a mistake on my part, but it's turned out to be plenty of fun!

so detailed~~ thx~~
i do like the air in the TA Forum~~people talk about the games and give frank suggestions.
itunes app store is full of fake reviews...i start finding them hard to be taken as a reference.
