If I had to chose just one, then it'll be World of goo for me. Cant choose a runners up coz there are just so many of them I equally loved. I'll end up listing 2-3 dozen games even if I post only the ones which I really really loved.

Anyways, Mod Warning : This thread is for posting your own choices and lets keep it that way. Dont argue with anyone else's opinion plz. And dont post here unless you have a game or two to nominate for your personal GOTY. Thanks

Aralon for GOY - because if I can't have Oblivion or Fallout 3 on the iPhone then this is the next best thing.

Runner-up: Space Miner

Second Runner-Up: Words with Friends (because nothin' says lovin' like kicking your best friend's butt with the English language from the other side of the planet. Especially when they went to college and graduated with a degree in English and you never set foot in an institution of higher learning.)

I can't choose so ... any of the following 6 is best the other 5 are runner-ups (warning I am on iPad):

Carcassonne - best board game so far
Chaos Rings HD - I have always been a fanatic of SE JRPG ....
Cave Bug Panic - Took me as a storm!
Bubble Pets - I play it and play it. It is just pure arcade fun
Aralon HD - A step forward. One that needs an ipad 2 to fully materialize.
Sentinel 3 - There are tons Tower Defense games, but one Sentinel 3 ....

But honestly .... I can give the best per category but a GOTY is impossible!! Congrats to who can.

Mine would be

World of Goo - because a great game was made even better with Multitouch
Aralon - A great attempt at bringing a Oblivion type game to IOS
Infinity Blade - For graphics and good gesture combat
Nova 2 HD - The best FPS on the idevice

And this one will probably surprise a few

Inspector Gadget HD - For sheer addictiveness and just one more go appeal what is what gamings all about

I got kinda frustrated in the story mode when i got seriously stuck on that mission which you have to first follow a guy with a skull umbrella, then chase a car around while youve got a radar that lags often. If youve reached it, any tips?

Otherwise, i had lots of fun getting all 20 stunt jumps and 50 cameras. Of course, free roaming alone was worth the price, imo. Its fun driving a bulldozer/firetruck/tank around! And rampage is awesome!
