A 2010 Buyers Guide (no Qordobo buying guide here)

EDIT: Ok an admin decided change this thread title to quote it as my own. To be clear, this list bellow doesn't reflect my choices at all. For example I consider Cubbed Rally Racer as a total boring crap. I let it here because some other people disagree and think it worth it that's all.

EDIT2: The thread title some moderator choose is so ridiculous, "Quordobo's 2010 (Unofficial) Buyers Guide addon", lol:
  • Addon? Of what?
  • Unofficial? So I create a thread and make it unofficial, so ridiculous.

But nope that ridiculous title isn't my own but more probably some moderator trying some manipulation.
************************

Anyway everybody agree the TA 2010 Buyers Guide is quite good but I wonder if users couldn't build an addon to this guide by adding some more categories and possibly some more games in some of the guide categories.

Well I'm not the best positioned to launch such thread and I can only see a huge garbage coming if this is generating anything anyway. But well let try.

So new version, in blue the (suggested) additions and in red last additions, alphabetic order for games lists. I also removed those that haven't been proposed by two different players to fully fit the new rule :

Casual: Fastar! + Fruit Ninja + Robot Unicorn Attack + Spirit + Solipskier + Tilt to Live

Action Platformer: Babylonian Twins Premium + Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise + Dark Nebula - Episode Two + Hook Worlds

Puzzle Platformer: (To remove if there isn't enough very worthy quotes for such separate category)

FIFA 11 for iPhone and Modern Combat 2 should definitely be mentioned.

Well, a point would be to add some more categories.

Myself I wish there was those:
  • Tower Defense
  • Point and Click Adventure games.
  • Hidden Object and Puzzles adventure games.
  • Dual Stick Shooters.
  • Match 3 based.
  • Puzzle Platformers in a separate category.
  • Puzzle separated from Board.
  • Sim separated from Strategie.
  • Shooters separated from Action/Arcade

For now I don't see much more.

Ok, not sure how I should make it works but for now I'll used a document to summarize suggestions and will update first thread for quoting the current state only sometimes.

The addition of new categories suggested will bring few changes to the original TA 2010 Buyers Guide. Here the current state:

Casual: Fruit Ninja + Robot Unicorn Attack + Tilt to Live + Solipskier + Fastar!

Action Platformer: Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise + Dark Nebula - Episode Two + Babylonian Twins Premium + Hook Worlds (Dark Nebula is a bit at the edge of this category because it has only one plane. But technically it has some platforms and it suits well the spirit of Platformers anyway)

Puzzle Platformer: (To remove if there isn't enough very worthy quotes for such separate category)

Retro: Pix'n Love Rush + The Incident + Vector Tanks EXTREME! + FINAL FANTASY + Secret of Mana (I feel Secret of Mana would fit better the RPG category, but I wonder. It is fine here but well, it's not as old than FF1&2)

Role Playing: Infinity Blade + Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD + CHAOS RINGS

Point & Click Adventure: Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge

Hidden Objects & Puzzle Adventure:

Tower Defense: Plants vs Zombies

Strategy: Sword & Poker + Osmos

Sim: Warpgate + Game Dev Story (Warpgate is a complicated affair, for me it would fit better the RPG category, but it's also a sort of imaginary sim, for now it is ok here)

Action/Arcade: STREET FIGHTER IV + Chopper 2 + Dodonpachi Resurrection + Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars + Space Miner: Space Ore Bust + LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4

Dual Stick Shooters:

First Person Shooter: Archetype

Racing: Real Racing 2 + Cubed Rally Racer + Reckless Racing (For me if I would not have select some, for Cubed Rally Racer it's even I don't understand what it does here, but it's perhaps the iPad version that has awful controls and they waste all my fun making me unable to enjoy other qualities)

Puzzle: Trainyard + Zen Bound® 2 Universal + Helsing's Fire

Board: Carcassonne

Sports: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 + MADDEN NFL 11 by EA SPORTS™ + X2 Soccer 10/11 + X2 Snowboarding

Match 3 based:

Brick Breaker:

Odds and Ends: Sketch Nation Shooter + Godville

Ok just for training a little summarize of the additions I added the few suggestions from the few posts that seems good one even if I know nothing of those games. It's fine to argue here about the validity of any addition. And I add some of my own suggestions in some of the new genres suggested.

So the new additions not including those of TA Buying Guide, alphabetic order:

Brick Breakers: Brickadelic (iPad only) + Circuloid (iPad only) + COCOnoid + Enchanted Forest + Ricochet Infinity

First Person Shooter: Modern Combat 2

Sports: Football Manager 2011 + FIFA 11

Tower Defense: AutoRobot TD + Bloons TD 4 + Dungeon Defenders + iBomber Defense + Lord of the Rings Middle-Earth Defense (only iPad version) + Monster Feed + Plants vs Zombies + Sentinel 3: Homeworld + Three Kingdoms TD Legend of Shu (yeah a lot but huge TD year even if not very quoted in sites)

EDIT: Ha forgot Galaxy On Fire 2, well I wonder where put it, again in Sim or RPG?
