    Leisure games like Cut the Rope and Words With Friends are fun to play on the go or when you're looking to kill some time on your break at work. But I've noticed that the iPad has rekindled my old gaming habit. I haven't played video games this much since the days of PS2, back in 2003. :eek:

    FIFA 13, Mass Effect, Modern Combat 4, Bastion, MetalStorm, Bladeslinger and Real Racing 2 are just a few games that I play regularly!

    Anyone experience the same thing? What are some of your favorite games on iPad?

    I can relate, OP. I played draw something for nearly 2.5 hours straight yesterday -- I literally contemplated as to whether or not I should delete the app because of how much time I waste on it, haha.

    PvZ is da bomb! I also like Off Road Legends, ShadowGun, Flick Golf and of course any of the Angry Birds stuff. :)

    Being jailbroken is better, which the mini lacks.

    I play SNES, PSX, PSP, Nintendo DS games on my Nexus 7.

    Feels good

    I agree OP. I just downloaded Aralon(basically Elder Scrolls for iOS). No telling if I'll ever look up from my ipad again.

    I'm back on the Real Racing 2 circuit -- now in HD on my Mini. Hadn't played it since last winter on my iPhone.

    Just the other day it dawned on me to play online (local) with my kids, letting them use my old Touch. Of course, they have to use the 4cyl intro car while I drive a GT. :D

    'Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition' has me absolutely hooked on iPad gaming. The last two I was relatively addicted to were 'Sid Meier's Pirates' and 'Galaxy on Fire 2'. Some of the point-and-click adventures are good fun as well, like 'Broken Sword'.

    I haven't turned my PS3 on since I got my mini. My favourites include:

    The Room (obviously! when are they going to update this with more?!?!)
    Doors&Rooms (much harder than The Room but good fun)
    Jar on a Bar (love this!)

    Downloaded Asphalt 7 (free! what amazing graphics but wow is this app huge ~1.5GB)

    I think the iPad is such a great gaming device, I'd love to see some of these games end up on the ATV using a new BT game controller next year. Possible??

    No I am the other way, I have stopped playing games since I had my iPad. I used to play games to kill the time and now I am spending more time net surfing on the iPad. I find the games boring on iPad, real gamers use consoles or PCs for games.

    I agree with this.

    I found that since I got the iPad a year ago, I spend more time surfing the net and youtube and less time gaming on the iPad. To me, the mass majority of the games are boring on the iPad. I only play chess, words with friends, letter press and poker. I do the rest of my gaming on the PS3 (MK9, BF3, BO2, EA Sports games).

    These are all great games, guys! Aralon, Infinity Blade, Sky Gamblers, etc.

    I just downloaded Knights of Pen & Paper! It costs $1.99 so I hope it's good! :p

    Mass Effect: Infiltrator is by far the best, though! I

    'm thinking of downloading Galaxy on Fire 2 HD. I wish the older Final Fantasy games were cheaper. I'm a huge fan of that RPG series.

    Ziggo: make sure to check out Bastion, too.

    TOTALLY AGREED! I too quit playing console games around 2003 and switched to some first person shooters for Mac but then the iPad came along and I started playing more games. Its games like Modern Combat and Real Racing that are honestly very close to a console experience in your hands. Plus the games are under 10 bucks.

    P.S. I know serious console gamers will laugh at my statements but I find playing a first person shooter on the iPad much easier than using two imprecise analog sticks. And I guarantee a mouse and keyboard is even better. Put a PC gamer up against any console gamer and the PC gamer will blow everyone away.
