iPod Touch poor gaming machine

Not because it's bad quality, just because you need wifi 90% of the time to play games.
Wanted to buy 4G iPod Touch for our kids but what's the use if they can't play all the games in the car ?

More than half of the ames on the app store dont really need it, it all depends on what genre your kids play.

Check out the top free, chances are you wont need WiFi.

I find it quite the opposite...most games don't require the internet.

What's the easiest way to find this out ? Could there be a list in existence that states which games need wifi and which not ?

You'd just have to do trial and error, which isn't too hard because most are Single player (with, or without the option for Multi-player/Online mode). I don't have too many games on my device but here are some that I own, and won't require internet. You may need a connection for in-game purchases and power ups, however.

Fruit Ninja
Subway Surfers
4 Pic 1 Word
Plants vs Zombies
Angry Birds
DoodleJump
Temple Run
Temple Run 2
Skee-ball 2
Tetris
Bejeweled
Hungry Shark
The Sims
Jetpack Joyride
Flight Control
Bubble Island
Agent Dash

If you didn't even know how to tell, why did you posit that over 90% of them require wifi?

You just nullified your entire thesis.

Because our kids play games on our iPad 2 now and if our Wifi isn't turned on, they always come and complain that this or that game doesn't work... which is solved by turning on the wifi...
