Current games I have installed on my ipt4 and look awesome:

Real Racing 2 (best racing game so far, and graphic are AMAZING!)

NOVA 2 (Gotta love online multiplayer, lots of maps and weapons, really really fun!, oh and it has this leveling system that earns you more weapons, perks, etc.)

RAGE HD (aside from great graphics, I just love killing mutants :P, cons: on rails, just like the next on the list)

Infinity Blade (quite repetitive but it has da best iOS graphics out there, really eye candy, and fun)

Other games I have installed:

RockBand Reloaded
Guitar Hero
SF IV (Just buy it, you wont be disappointed)
Tilt to Live (bought the little expansion pack and its really fun!)
Kosmo Spin
Backbreaker 2
Fruit Ninja
Inotia 3 (I'm a little disappointed about this one, expected to had better graphics, and it has a pesky sound glitch)

Played and deleted:

NFS: Hot Pursuit (I bought it while it was on sale 0.99 bucks, its a great game, but not for me, my lil bro plays it all the time on his ipt 2G)

Eternal Legacy (good FF VII ripoff by you know who, it gets boring, repetitive, voice acting is weird and story is too fast paced)

So, idk what else, that's all I remember now :P, hope it helped you

I assume a mod will move it to the appropriate forum.

I'll second Infinity Blade. If you read the thread on here, you'll find that the game is very hit or miss. Some people really like it and others are crying for their money back. But, if for nothing else, the eye candy might almost be worth the cost.

Though, any game with full retina display support will look a ton better on a 4th gen device.

Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD would be a good choice. I personally don't have a 4G, but one of my friends does, and it works perfectly with great graphics. It's an RPG with a HUGE world, with 3 races, 4 classes with another one (Paladin) soon to come, and continuous support from the developers.

Stick to games that support the native resolution of your device (Retina, 640x960) and you'll be fine. Games such as Canabalt, Carcassonne, Cut the Rope, Infinity Blade, Heroes of Kalevala, and Pinball HD are all great places to start.
