Fruit Ninja (it's essential)
GTA III

Max Payne (port of the PS2 game)

Hey! I play games on my Android Tab all the time, heck, I co-founded a IRC channel devoted to game compatibility for the Android port for the HP Touchpad.

You have a pretty nice list. Here are a few more I would recommend.

Dead Space

Asphalt 6

N.O.V.A 3 is coming out this month... Already have it on my iPod and it's amazing!

World of Goo

A really cool game that came with the Humble Bundle a few years ago just came out for Android. It's called Machinarium. A Steam Punk point and click adventure. I'm playing it right now.

The Impossible Game is a great one-touch game for when you are playing your music in the background.

Crash Course 3D: ICE looks amazing... game play is similar to Asteroids.

Anomaly HD

Death Rally

Backstab is a decent rip off of Assassins Creed

Emulators! SNES, GBA, and others can be found for free here: https://slideme.org/user/yongzh

Real Racing 2 is a great alternative to Gran Turismo for you Android Device

Reckless Racing 2, Reckless Getaway, and Mini Motor Racing are great birds-eye-view racers

Where's my Water? is a fun little puzzle game

Well those are all the good ones I have on my Touchpad at the moment. :D

I'll report back later if I think I missed one.

You can come join us Android Game discussion on Freenode #Touchpad-gaming. :D

Touchpad's are awesome. It's what I use, too.
Machinarium looks freaking sweet. I'm gonna buy it now pirate it because it thinks it's incompatible with the touchpad. P:

Nice! Come idle in our IRC room if you like. If you aren't IRC savvy you can join with this web client.

Machinarium does work with the TP... We have a really cool bot for obtaining these games.;)

While Mupen64 Plus Android Edition is making great progress, N64oid is, by far, the best N64 emulator for Android. For puzzle/physics i would add Where's My Water and Shoot The Apple.

The thing about 2D RPGs for me is that I'm already using the SNES emu to catch up on some of the great ones. Now a nice little action RPG would be lovely!

Same here! I am currently playing through Chrono Trigger on my Touchpad. It's an amazing game.

BTW if MMOs are your thing Order and Chaos is a complete 3D world MMO. They charge monthly after 3 months I believe.

Pocket Legends and Star Legends are other MMOs to consider.

I started playing "Celes Arca" It's a very low key MMO but has fairly good art direction.
