    None. Life is too short. And I've just realised that life is also too short to read and post in threads I don't like either...

    Like listing all these games in different categories, eh?

    Or try to make others do it. :)

    crash bandicoot (i only show it to my friends thow.)
    How can a game for 5€ be good if you've finished it after 2 howers (sorry if you can't read everything, my spelling isn't the best:()

    Wow kinda harsh there eh? His question is perfectly legitimate. Who gives a flying fart how "active" he is? Good god it's degenerated into the Official World of Warcraft forums already where you get flamed if someone detects you're so much as reading the messages.

    Oh my answer would be Loopy Lab btw.

    Cro Mag. I play it sometimes but it's really not that much fun.

    Cro Mag looks abit like Crash Bandicoot (they are both cart games so that's nothing unusal).
    I think wat the iPod racing games need is more racingtracks!
    (most of the other games need more levels)

    Motochaser. I know, I know - it really is kind of lousy - but I just haven't got around to deleting it yet. And every once in a while, I feel like a quick motorcycle race.

    Mine is Rolando... the final 1/4 of the levels just aren't any fun for me, and I find it frustrating and tedious... I want to just beat the game so I can delete it from my device, and from memory. Everything else I can justify though!

    I agree that this is actually an interesting topic. I never really thought about it before. Sometimes I will click on a game that isn't all that great, but for some reason I go to it.

    Here's the odd one for me... Duck Derby.

    I got it because my youngest daughter loves ducks and I emcee a big Make A Wish Ducky Derby event every year. It's just a little game where the ducks float down a river and you hope that your duck wins. There is no real achievements or anything to it, but for some reason I'll load it up a couple of times a week even if my daughter isn't around.

    Why? I don't know... Damn Ducks!

    I personally find his question interesting, as I haven't taken a step back to actually think about it before. So I'd hardly consider it useless or senseless.

    I can't list just one game, so below are the games I keep around on my limited 9 pages, but haven't played enough to actually like. Or perhaps I play now and then, don't like it, but still keep them around for some odd reason. I uninstall apps quite frequently, so all the ones below have held on beyond reason in some cases.

    1. Aqualution - It's a game I play, but I'm not too sure I like. I want to like it, it is challenging and something different. But it reminds me too much of those toddler games where you fit the plastic shapes into the holes. :p
    2. Blackbeard Assault - Not too sure I like it just yet.
    3. Black Mamba (Lite) - I like the old style, I just haven't mastered the controls, so I don't like this quite yet.
    4. Crossbones
    5. DuckDuckDuck
    6. Flexis
    7. Glow - It's a neat concept, but I really do not think I like it. WHY DO I KEEP PLAYING?
    8. Pakoon3 - I really do not like something about this game, but keep it around because it's a puzzler that is quite difficult at times.
    9. Penguin Lite - I play 1-2 levels and always put it down, never progressing beyond that point. I don't like these kind of games too much, but I keep this around anyway as it appears to have some depth I want to see further.
    10. Pinch n' Pop - I'd have deleted it weeks ago if the girlfriend wasn't in love with this game. I find constant pinching annoying, but other than that this is a good game.
    11. Quadrum:colors - The only traditional looking match-3 game I have that I'm not sure I like all too much.
    12. Space Deadbeef - It's one of the first free games I picked up, reminds me of the R-Type games, but appears to have a lot of tapping involved. I never play it much, but keep it around anyway.
    13. Totem - Played 1-2 levels, I normally like Chillingo games, and this one is well made, just not sure if I like it.

    Agreed! This is the reason alo tof people are leaving Toucharcade! Superbad, if you aren't interested in a thread, leave it alone!!!!!! We have mods here to take care of dictating needed vs. unneeded content.

    OP, mine is prob Linerider, as well.

    Exactly-and why new members are afraid to post-now no one wants a spam filled forum-but a forum where every other post is trolling or people saying "FAIL" and other unfunny jokes is just as bad.

    K thats my input- and I'll third linerider also. I could see how other big budget games such as BIA or Rolondo could be considered a dissapointment, but not horrible games by any means.
