It seems like so many games break with new iOS versions, and if developers are no longer supporting them, we're just SOL. I have my 4S still, and would like to load it up with "classic" games that no longer work in iOS 7 or 8, or games that will likely never get widescreen support.

What iOS version would people recommend, and the. what great games are ideal for it?

Dungeon raid and swords and poker 2 I have those on my iPhone 6 but pretty sure they will run on your iPod. They are still 2 of my favorites.

Just a quick list of games on my 5S that run, but don't have widescreen support:

30 Second Life - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Awesome Solitaire - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Baseball Superstars 2010 - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Dungeon Raid - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Flip's Escape - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Hook Worlds - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Mage Gauntlet - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Mini Squadron - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Soccer Superstars 2011 - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Super Crate Box - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Super Quick Hook - works in iOS 9, no widescreen
Unify - works in iOS 9, no widescreen

And then ones that don't work (at least in iOS 9):
Justin Smith's Realistic Summer Sports Simulator - broken in iOS 9, no widescreen
Ziggurat - broken in iOS 8, no widescreen

The PlayNice version of Any Landing should work on 6.1 although it might be pushing a 4th gen iPod a bit. SlotZ Racer 2 HD, SlotZ Racer Caterham Special, Apple Bob HD are all still iOS 5.1 compatible and SnapMatch Soccer is 6.1 compatible. Although as we do our next round of updates, we'll probably be setting at least iOS 7.1 as base and possibly 8.4 now iOS 9 is out (although the current versions will still be useable on older devices if you've already purchased/downloaded them).
