Best Casual Game

What gets your vote for the best casual game? I love my iPod but I don't think I'll ever consider it to be a true next gen gaming device. It will never take the place of my PSP or DS. What it can do better than the rest is be the best pick up and play device for casual games. Games like Canabalt, Edge, Space Miner, The Incident, SolipSkier, HR Battle, Osmos and more. My vote goes to RocketCat's hook games. Can't wait for the Hook World update. What about you?

My vote goes to Plants vs Zombies. Even played through it twice. And with the upcoming update, looks like I'm gonna be playing it again.

A close second goes to Fruit Ninja.

#1 PvZ, very little competition here, if any, this game is one of the very few titles I can never get enough of, and every time I awe at the amazing soundtracks, idea, cute sprites, and creative gameplay
#2 Cut The Rope, simply the cutest puzzle game ever, too bad it's really short and the updates are coming really really slowly
#3 World of Goo, super cute, really innovative gameplay
#4 iBlast Moki, original, lots of levels, really cute
#5 Spirits, one of the most artistic games for iDevice

I change my vote to Infinity Blade. I consider that to be a pick up and play game. Infinity Blade FTW!!
