    Every time the topic comes up, people can't believe it when I tell them I have no games on my iPhone. At that point I typically hand my phone over to them so they can see for themselves. Then they look at me like I'm from another planet.

    Any other game-less iPhones out there ... or am I truly from another planet?

    If you're not into gaming and things, then why get an iPhone? You'd have been better off with a more average phone.

    I do have some on there, but only play Trism and WWF when I'm at home. I just don't view the iPhone as a viable gaming device, I have my dedicated consoles for that. I have replaced my iPod for day-to-day usage with the phone, but that's about it.

    I only have words with friends and only update it once a week. I don't really care for games on the iPhone because of the screen size and on screen controls.

    I have an android tablet I game on a little more cause I can easily hook a ps3 controller or wiimote to it. Even then I usually only play emulators of old console games (Nintendo through PS1. However oddly enough I just downloaded dead space and shadow gun but I still prefer the consoles though.

    No games on mine. Quite a bit of music (I use my iPhone for music in the car) along with SatNav and a bunch of productivity-related apps.

    There ARE other uses for a smartphone you know - not all need to be mindless ;)

    This is so unbelievably narrow minded :rolleyes:

    I do have games on my iPhone but I never play them. I guess I keep them just in case I'm stuck somewhere, I'm bored to death and there's absolutely nothing else that I could do, but then I would probably be worried about conserving the battery power....

    Coincidentally, I just added my first game this morning. :rolleyes:

    BTW Infinity Blade looks amazing on the 4S versus Gen 3 Touch. :D

    I'd be more surprised if someone didn't have a social networking app (google+, twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc etc).

    I've got a few on there but never touch any of them anymore since getting my Vita. It's basically a folder that's just left there to make up space. Saying that when I do let my friends' use my phone they mostly do play them and it's not like I need the memory the games take so I'll just leave them.

    I tried putting some of my iPad / iPhone games on my 4S as am waiting for my newbie....The screen makes it tough, but it's okay connected to my TV...Will probably leave them on there now.

    no games on mine. Every now and then I'll download one to see if anything has changed, but I can never get used to on-screen controls on such a small screen.

    Two games as a curiosity. Bit I never use them. I browse, use forums, music, videos and everything else.

    No games.

    I have one folder with 12 games in it. However, I only play about 4 of them. The others are for my son to play.

    No social networking apps on my iPhone.
