iOS gaming isn't even close. Games in each genre have similar limitations. For example instead of open world characters move a short distance and stand in one place. For really basic games it's ok.

iOS is awesome for some kind of games.

Just as it is a pain to play RTS in a console, it is a pain playing FPS on an iPhone.

Nonetheless from my experience I believe RPGs found their nest in iOS. They are an absolute pleasure to play.

Bastion, Chaos Rings, The Worlds Ends With You, Zenonia, Lilli, Infinity Blade, etc... are amazing games that play amazingly well on the iPhone, not to mention the iPad.

I still buy games for my Xbox, but I don't play it for more than a weekend or two tops.

I love iOS games with unique control schemes, the games with controls optimized for the touch screen.

I'm not a fan of virtual joysticks, but I do still like the console experience from time to time. I decided to buy the duo gamer controller. It only works with 5 gameloft games or so but the quality is excellent.

Aside from Real Racing and Asphalt 7...any other recommendations? Most Wanted seems dumbed down and fun, but unsure (due to annoyance of silly AI). Then again, it is dumbed down.

I played few games on my iPhone when I am bored on the train. Now I play a lot of games with iPad.
That is OK to make fun of my poor english grammars just because you are bullying deaf people.
