    Apple has had the same iPod touch commercial for a while, and games like 300 Bowl that are in the commercial have received updates that make them a lot better (and make them look a lot better as well). My question is, if Apple asked you to make a new iPod Touch commercial, what apps/games would you include to fully show off the touches capabilities. The first commercial really only showed off the accelerometer, but there are so many more games that include mixtures of touch/accelerometer controls.

    My list would include:
    Trism (I don't play it much but the touch + tilt controls work well)
    Edge (Showing the cube doing a stall would be awesome in a commercial)

    What are your ideas?

    And I think this is in the right section, since it's a casual discussion about apps, not about a specific app, so I didn't put it in the games or apps section.

    I think Rolando has to be on that commercial if they come up with one

    Most definately. Rolando needs to have a dedicated commercial all its own. But I mean, it would take another blow away song as good as Around the Bend. I love that song, btw. Asteroid Galaxy Tour is the band/singer.

    Yeah, I bought that song as soon as I heard it. It's probably my favorite song ever.... :)

    Hmmm... They could show off Hero of Sparta for graphics, maybe X-Plane.

    If they make a new commercial, they should use games that are very recognizable by the general public (SimCity, Monopoly) as well as the visually impressive iPhone games (Touch Grind, Rolando, Hero of Sparta, Field Runners)

    I'm not saying that these are the best games that the app store has to offer, but these games would make a big impact with most viewers

    Yeah, some of the games in the first commercial were turn-offs to me.

    The most likely games to appear in any new ad (in my opinion):
    • Star Wars, Sim City and Monopoly for their brand recognition
    • Rolando, Edge and Crayon Physics simply for how much "fun" they look
    • Kroll, Hero of Sparta and Fastlane for that graphical "WOW" factor

    The above games seem to follow the same sort of pattern as the 1st ad.

    I am a bit surprised Apple hasn't done a new ad, given that the store is so frequently updated with new games and apps, that seem to be getting better all the time. But then again, i haven't seen that ad on tv since the Touch 2G was launched.

    Actually, I saw it yesterday during the Ravens v. Steelers game.
