    How bad is the hit on battery life when gaming on an iPhone 4S with it's dual GPU? It's much worse than the iPhone 4?

    like everything else, it depends on the activity (type of game).

    I played Fifa 12 for 1 hour and it dropped 20%.

    Depends on what you do. I have no clue becuase whenever I play a game like FIFA 12 or GTA III, I always have my phone plugged in.

    I tried NBA2k12; about 15 minutes of play, sucked around 8% of battery.

    This isn't really a fair comparison (because the game has enhanced graphics for A5 devices) and it is kind of irrelevant to your question, but my battery dropped about 30% after about 30 minutes of playing Infinity Blade II.
