Games are Increasingly More Violent
With today’s technology, there are some overly graphic iPhone games and applications. Games such as Skee-ball and PAC-Man are now nearly irrelevant. Instead, iPhones now feature games that are much more graphic. Some of the graphics are controversial since a good majority of these applications and games are extremely violent. Below is a list of the nine most violent iPhone games available for download.
