    So I got 75$ in itunes gift cards and want to spend about 65$ of it on games, which games should I get? I like pretty much any type of games, and it would be preferable if there is a lite version that I can play to try it.

    Hmm assuming you don't have any iPhone games yet these are the choices. I'll add lite next to it if it has a lite version

    Zenonia + lite
    X2 Football + lite
    Doom Ressurection
    Flight Control
    Harbor Master
    Sea Captain
    Field Runners
    The Creeps
    Eliss + lite
    Geo Defense
    Rolando + lite
    Rolando 2
    Baseball Slugger 3D
    Let's Golf
    Doodle Jump
    Hero of Sparta + lite
    Dig It + lite

    Probably the wrong part of the forums for this question (probably should be in general), but since you have an open mind, I'll say to at least try the lite version of Soul Trapper. It's an audio adventure game, pretty highly rated by those who've played it (including myself), there's nothing like it in the App Store currently, and I actually want it to do better than it's done because the dev promised there'd be more audio adventure games coming our way this month...but so far I've not seen any new releases :(.

    Here's the link in iTunes: Soul Trapper Ep. 1 Preview

    And a vid so you can check out a trailer of the story and a bit on how the game is played. Now, remember, it's an audio adventure, which means the gameplay centers around audio, not video.

    Also look into checking out stuff like any of the Gameloft games that may have lite versions if you haven't already done so (Hero of Sparta, Terminator Salvation, Ferrari GT, etc.). Gameloft's library of games

    Isotope lite (Isotope: Lite) is a good lite version of a great multidirectional shooter (think Geometry Wars, Smash TV or Robotron). The full version is only a buck, btw. But if you want to be frugal with that buck (I'm not gonna judge) the lite version is very extensive, moreso than other lite versions, and if you enjoy the game enough to buy the full version you can, I believe, transfer your save from the lite to the full.

    -zenonia
    -dinosmash
    -her of sparta
    -quantum collapse
    -knights onrush
    -stickwars
    -warfare inc
    -globall
    -peggle
    -rolando
    -coastguard
    -i dig it

    Brothers in Arms is a good one. So is I Love Katamari. Rolando and Rolando 2 definitely. Assassin's Creed; Altair's Chronicles. If you like 3D platform Adventure games at all, get Otto-Matic: The Alien Invasion. I'd also recommend Boomer's Sky Fishing, just because it's awesome. Best Online games are F.A.S.T, Dinosmash Online, and Bomber Online, IMO.

    Save some money for upcoming games like Gang$tar: West Coast Hustle, and the FPS from NgMoco. I must also mention that Resident Evil 4 and 5 are coming to an appstore near you. I hope the ports of Duke Nukem and THPS2 haven't been canceled.

    These lists are a little bit overwhelming for a person just starting out getting games.

    First, you have to identify what kind of games interest you.

    Adventure, RPG?
    Sports?
    FPS?
    TD?
    Line guided?
    iPhone specific?

    Then decide if you want all of one genre or a mix?

    The worst thing you can do is follow other people's lists. Because there is almost certainly a game on other people's lists that you won't like.

    Good advice. So much of what we think is good or great is personal preference. What type of games do you usually like?

    Although obvious, try the lite versions. Too often people get caught up in the excitement and find out no matter how good the video looked or the reviews say it is, it just isn't for you. In fact, I'm almost at the point that I won't buy anything if I can't try a lite version first.
