    My recommended games:
    Avadon: The Black Fortress (Humble Bundle)
    Block Story (It's like minecraft, but with an RPG and level up system)
    Cytus (Music game)
    Dead Trigger (Zombie FPS)
    Feed Me Oil (Reminds me of Where's my Water, but with oil and strange creatures. World of Goo art style, kinda)
    Final Fantasy III (Best game on Android so far, if you enjoy RPG games)
    Fruit Ninja (it's essential)
    GTA III
    Machinarium (Sweet little puzzle game. steampunk inspired)
    Max Payne (port of the PS2 game)
    Mass Effect infiltrator
    N.O.V.A 3 (FPS with great online)
    Shadow Era (TCG game)
    World of Goo (It's a classic)
    Ragnarok Online (MMORPG. It's korean, but has a translation patch now. )

    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.

    http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=touchpad-gaming&uio=d4

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

    Six Guns is my guilty pleasure.

    The Oregon Trail is another favorite.

    I LOVE Six Guns but It runs a bit slow on my tablet. I'm planning on getting a new SD card today so hopefully a card of higher storage speed and class number will help me out.

    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.

    Canabalt - something you can play shortly when you have like, just a few brief moments (www.canabalt.com to try it out)
    ReRave - More of a me thing, but if you like any type of music-rhythm game, you'll want to check this one out.

    You are missing all of the "Zenonia" titles on your RPG list. I own the first one but it looks like ass on Tablet screens.

    They are decent. I'll just say one thing... Try before you buy! Sweet thing about Android but often abused.

    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.
