    Ever since TA stopped rating games (really, what's up with that?), I've missed their monthly round-up of the best games. However, October was such a great month for iPhone gaming that I just couldn't resist highlighting the best 10 games and letting the TA community vote on their favorite. Who knows, maybe this will become a monthly tradition on the forums. :D

    UPDATE: Voting is now closed!


    The Touch Arcade community has spoken and the winner, with 39 votes, is...

    Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus!

    Second place, with 32 votes, goes to:

    Game Dev Story!

    And, taking home the bronze medal, with 22 votes:

    Cut the Rope!

    Thanks to the entire community for your contributions! See you in December!

    I've only played 2 of the ones above and out of those, I'd say Game Dev Story. Modern Combat 2 sounds great tho.

    Because it's awesome.

    Oh, no! Sorry about that. I tried as hard as I could to not miss a great game, but I guess RR kinda slipped by.

    1. Galaxy on Fire 2
    2. Modern Combat 2
    3. Cut the Rope
    4. Samurai II
    5. Sonic 4

    I vote Galaxy on Fire 2 for October's best. Modern Combat 2 has the best action and graphics, but Galaxy on Fire 2 has better depth and originality. It's the epic space RPG I've been waiting for.

    Game Dev Story all the way.

    Yes it's a really barebones cellphone port. But the underlying gameplay is more fun than anything else that came out recently.

    Sounds like a good idea. Maybe next month you can take nominations first so that none of the games get left out. Looks like a lot of people think Age of Zombies and Reckless Racing should be on this list so a nomination process would fix those kinds of titles from being left out in the future. Just a thought.

    I voted Modern Combat 2. I've bought GoF2 but haven't had time to get around to it yet. Hopefully it's fantastic.

    Well that's a selection and it seems solid, and you even already sort them. Funnily I haven't played any of them, but it's a lot because I tend delay big hypes (oops I mean High fames). And some other are very recent releases, there's even some I haven't noticed the name yet.

    I understand it's an iPhone only thread but without to use this restriction, here some more suggestions (alphabetic order):
    • Age of Zombies (Universal)
    • Circuloid (iPad)
    • Deep Deep Dungeon
    • Dexter the Game (HD too)
    • Heroes Lore : Stigmata of Gaia
    • Monster Feed HD (iPad)
    • Reckless Racing (HD too)
    • Red Ball of Goo (Balls for iPad version)
    • Shadow Runner (HD too)
    • Virtual City (HD too)
    • Worms 2: Armageddon (Universal)

    I removed Phoenix and Star Battalion because they had no votes and I added Age of Zombies and Reckless Racing.
