I used to like Real Soccer over FIFA Soccer. But I don't like the newer versions. They're making the soccer games too comlicated imo.

Madden is awesome too.

They need to make them more in depth. Fifa on mobile devices is comically arcady, nothing at all compared to the real version.

Pitfall and Temple Run. I wanted to play turned based games but no one want to play with me so it is not worth it anyway.

If you tried to build such in real life, more than half the infrastructure would completely collapse in on itself.

Scooter Hero, deceptively simple and the best $0.99 ever spent (there's also a free version with ads).

I don't really play games on my smartphone. I find the small screen and lack of tactile controls really frustrating. I always feel like I would have done better with a proper gamepad or mouse+keyboard and it was the interface's fault that I died/failed.

I would be interested in some casual games that don't require much dexterity or precision, though. Something turn-based, or maybe something like Farming/Train simulator - something I would never play on my computer, but which might be fun to play for 15-20 minutes on the phone. Shooters, racing games, sports games etc. just don't work on a smartphone or tablet, IMO.

I found PES to be better, both mobile and desktop. Desktop FIFA caught up since 2010 but the mobile PES is better than FIFA just like the desktop series used to be.

Probably Dead Trigger, followed by Draw Something, then Shine Runner.

Majesty is the only game I've played that I really liked playing. All the other ones I've played were more to kill time.
