    No, this isn't another one of those threads asking which games are the best...
    It's slightly different.
    My question is, which games are the best to show off to others?
    Games that are fun, look nice, and make you seem cool.
    Ancient Frog, although it is a great game, would not make look you look cool.
    Touchgrind would.

    What do you guys think?

    My picks:
    Touchgrind
    Scoops
    Pocket God
    LightBike
    iDracula
    Any Racing Game
    iCopter
    Any Hottrix drinking app

    EDIT: There's another thread about this, located here

    Is this what the world has come to? Jesus christ, I'm not in any way a Earth freak but wtf? The standards of being cool these days is to have good looking games on your iPod? Maybe you should get a life and stop trying so hard to impress people with meaningless materials.

    I'm 14, sir. Every day I am surrounded by about 10 other 14-year-olds who all own either an ipod touch or an iphone. If you show off something cool, they are all envious of you. That feels good.

    Enjoy your teens! When you'll grow up, you'll know that that is not important at all. Enjoy your gadgets and at the same time learn, study hard because that's what it is going to matter later.

    I'm 23, and lemme tell you. It means nothing. You mean to tell me that your "friends" only accept you because of the games you buy (not to mention, they are available to EVERYONE), rather than who you are? You got some serious problems, kid.

    Easy VoodooVyper...I hear where you coming from. But, he's a kid so give him some leeway.

    give him a break
    its the society the teens live in

    but what i find funny is we are on a video gaming website that we check every day and play games on our phones and talk to people we never met and have virtual friends and WE are the ones telling OTHERS they have problems???

    :D

    What? That's completely irrelevant. I'm a college student with free time and I come on here to hear about new games and updates and maybe win some promo codes. How is that a problem? I'm not under the pretense that people like me because of the games I play, nor am I here trying to impress anybody.

    Doesn't anyone see what's wrong with that "the society teens live in" statement? You have to earn your friends by showing them how much money you have (aka what you pretend to have, because not too many 14 year olds have jobs)? So, essentially, you earn your friends by showing them how much money your parents make and how spoiled you are. Talk to me in 10 years and tell if me if those "friends" even know your name anymore.

    I feel like your taking this too seriously. He just wanted to start a thread and have some responses going.

    The best to show off is something simple, like Pocket God. Or a game with really good graphics, like Fieldrunners.

    I also love showing iPhone games to my friends and girlfriend. Not to make them they accept me, but to make them accept that iPhone is really great.

    What I don't understand is how some people still underestimate the iPhone - when the rest of smartphone industry is trying to copy it.

    It just puts me on edge when people post things like that. Especially when he said "to make me seem cool" in his original post. I didn't grow up with money handed to me left and right from my parents. It's just astonishing to me that only 9 years later, that 14 year olds have iPhones and iPod touches in such a terrible economy. Even more so, this is the method they use to earn their "friends" respect.

    I understand this, demonstrating a product to another is the classic "word of mouth" advertisement method that companies hope for constantly. I show games to my girlfriend as well because I think she may like them. But the OP is asking for games to 'show off' to his friends so that they think he's cool. (Read the original post, he even says "seem cool".)
