    I'm trying to think of games that would work on a such a small screen. The easy games would be just fine... Tic Tac Toe type games... even Blackjack would be doable. But something much beyond that and I'm not seeing a real big application but perhaps the devs can surprise us?

    PACMAN!
    Tetris. I'm thinking of all the games we could play on the old iPods that only had a scroll function and a tiny screen, and not multi-touch like we have now.

    Racing game, using the crown dial as a steering wheel.

    Basically, almost anything that requires to to both see and touch the screen are unlikely to work well.

    So, breakout and pong would work as well.

    Chess would work.. checkers. I just thought of a cool game... Marble Madness type game, if the gyro sensor is good enough.

    Is that a maze type game where you roll the ball through the maze by tilting the maze in various directions?

    I agree text-based games will suffer the least. But remember guys, your phone still has to be nearby for the watch itself if games are really what you want to do.

    PacMan would be tough but worth a try! Definitely would play racing games!

    What about simple puzzle games?
