I play with ROMs and peoples minds. Does that count?

Good one

luxxie says:

With the types of games out nowadays that can be far more entertaining...

Anything with zombies and I am sold.

Nicketmaster says:

Words, crabble, Angry Birds, and Dragon, Fly are all I play on a regular basis.

Option 5: Games that will run on my old device

raremage says:

What about strategy? Not sure how to answer, to be honest. My favorite casual games on a phone or tablet are tower defense and other strategy-type games.

datamike says:

most played (and still playing): speedx 3d, beyond that I'm split between just about any tower defense type game.

IceDree says:

Anything that I can download without Country Restriction
But the one I play the most is Jimmy Pataya

I just don't get mobile games, I just think "I wish this were a real game on Xbox" the whole time I'm playing.

MowDownJoe says:

I find myself mostly playing Kairosoft's various sim games. Grand Prix Story's addictive, and I hear they just came out with Pocket League Story (which is exclusive to Android... for now. I'm sure like GP Story, he'll port it to iOS in a few months).

Gee, spoilt for choice on the game generes, huh?

Role-playing games are my favourite, though I don't mind some sports games (particular car, NFL and vollyball games) and platformers...

slayerpsp says:

Dead Space is great Aftermath, Asphalt6,Battlefield,Death Worm, Drag Racing. some of my favorites

Splendor says:

What an awful poll.

What category does Angry Birds fall into? What about tower defense games? What about sim-city type games?

Nirvana328 says:

Angry Birds = Arcade and Action
Tower Defense (like Robo Defense) = Arcade and Action
Sim City (not sure but I tried Game Dev Story) = Casual

not the best categories imo but that's how the Market has them categorized.

kingtz says:

So what about that jiggly boob game? Casual?

Splendor says:

There's no "Arcade" or "Casual" options in the poll.

Nirvana328 says:

true, but Arcade and Action are one category, so technically Arcade is part of the Action category. But casual was casually left off the list.

What about RPGs (role-playing games) and platformers?

Gekko says:

none. i hate games.

Jordan jones says:

I love emulator gba games right now I'm final fantasy vi

r-nice says:

Action & Puzzles, I think that's about all that works on button-less devices.

Zombieville USA, Whiz Kid Jr., Angry Birds, Robot Unicorn Attack - are my usual suspects.

jlschulz says:

In the android environment ? Just puzzles, for real games it will always be on the xbox big screen

rem_kujawa says:

Hyperjump its like crack for me.

Battleheart is a good step in the RPG direction...

raindog469 says:

I chose "action" because "arcade" wasn't an option. As far as native Android apps go, I've spent a lot of time with Angry Birds, Words with Friends, Bouncy Mouse and Shoko Rocket, but I've spent a lot more time in Droid2600 and over the last week, MAME4Droid. Retro FTW!

Well, except when it has crappy controls like the official Pac-Man. Glad that one was the free app of the day.
