    Strategy games, such as tower defense, are an addictive short recreation for me.

    I preper puzzle games

  • Big_EZ

    I mainly play tower defense games on my phone. I love fps, but until I have a tablet (and maybe a game pad) I will only play them on a console or PC, they aren’t very fun on a small touch screen.

    I pretty much only play the quick, casual, action games on my phone when I have a few minutes free…nothing deeper, though RPGs are my favorite gaming genre overall.

    I have to think a lot at work so I like games where I can zone out and relieve stress by blowing shit up or bust some skulls aka FPS or 3rd person free-roam games like GTA. Thanks!

  • seth drasner

  • http://twitter.com/wtoast Patrikk Bailey

    I don’t usually play games on my phone, but my 6 year old made me download MineCraft Pocket Edition. He loves this game.
    I’d have to say that I’ve always been a FPS gamer.

    Casual games.. Angry Birds, MIB3, ect

  • http://twitter.com/DanielTifft Daniel Tifft

    I enjoy playing puzzle games on my phone such as Unblock Me, Where’s My Water and Cut the Rope!

  • http://twitter.com/anospa Dan McCormack

    I like playing casual games on my phone, usually don’t spend time playing many of them (would rather game on PC or xbox).

  • ocarcallas

    I like more social games like chess games, poker games, scrabble. Games that can be played with other people! It’s like hanging out with your friends while you’re at work!

  • http://twitter.com/X4arms X4arms

    I like to play puzzle/strategy games like Plants vs Zombies, Angry Birds, etc.

  • http://twitter.com/tfbiii Fred Buecker

    I love games like angry birds… enough thought to be interesting, but not enough that they don’t let me relax. Pocket Legends is a good hack and slash as well.

  • Adam Wilkins

    gta III… if it didn’t glitch out so much…

  • Justin

    RPGs are definitely my favorite, Illusia is holding my attention span atm.

  • http://twitter.com/mxfox408 Jake Fox

    I like playing Strategy games or tower defense games because those games are really awesome.

  • GazaIan

    That’s a tough one, but I gotta say MMOs, especially MMORPG games. I just love the fact that you can interact and compete against other people, it makes the game really fun.

  • dtm4

    I like easy games that don’t take a long time to play so I can just play for a few minutes when I have some down time.

  • GuidZilla

    My favorite types for mobile are FPS and Sidescrollers.

  • RedPandaAlex

    I like a good puzzle game, but I’m looking for an easy-to-pick-up RPG

  • http://www.facebook.com/leaveittoweaves Josh Weaver

    I currently have a droid x2, angry birds, and cut the rope work well, but more intense games are not perfect. But anything that passes time and is semi fun.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ajm.maldnodano Ajm Maldnodano

    I have always loved rpgs and love them just as much on my smartphone.

  • http://twitter.com/RightHandManSJ RightHandMan

    Tower games make ma happy in transit.

  • http://twitter.com/AngelMom037 Kelly E

    On my smartphone, it would have to be puzzle games.

  • Larry Franks

    I like puzzle games and casual games. Monopoly and Angry Birds and stuff like that. But I have gotten pretty addicted to GTAIII on it once or twice.
