    after noticing some games like boulder dash and pac man in the app store, got me wondering what other games you could see going on there.

    I think a couple of mine would be the old style Rampage game and Lemmings could be cool :p

    anyone else like to see some of their old classic games on the iPhone? :D

    Ultima Online! That's considered a classic right? :D

    I'd like to just see more full-length games. It would take up what 1 GB of space? The processors are capable of running them too.

    Afterburner, Outrun, & Mario Lemeiux (don't know how to spell it) Hockey. We need some basketball games to. How about Lakers vs. Celtics? Both Sega and EA are good at sports games. Where are they? I know Madden is coming later this year.

    With third party controllers coming there is no excuse for some really great games.

    ah Megaman, now that brings back memories.

    there are a few old atari games I remember playing but for the life of me can't remember their titles.

    I'd love to see some old Intellivision games ported to the iPhone. Burgertime, Astrosmash, Night Stalker, etc.. That would be sweet.

    Some of the classic arcade games as well; There's already a thread here on Defender, Gorf, Robotron 2084, Joust, etc.

    I was basing that off the myst game, I'm sure that wasn't the size it on the iPhone.

    but still, FFVII would be a huge app, and you really need a bigger screen, I still play it on my original playstation, i refuse to buy a ps3 till i see a word for word re-release on bluray
