There's a reason Angry Birds has been the top-selling game in the App Store for so long.

As you may have heard, the App Store just celebrated its second birthday. That means iPhone and iPod gaming is officially two years old as well. How in the world did I ever occupy my downtime before Flight Control came along?

This got me thinking: what's my all-time favorite iPhone game? More importantly, what's yours?

I'm sure the aforementioned Flight Control ranks near the top of many a list. And I can think of some other obvious choices, like Bejeweled 2, Pocket God, Words with Friends, and The Sims 3.

Those are definitely some of my favorites, though I'm also partial to classic gems like Jet Car Stunts and newer titles like Banzai Rabbit.

Oh, and let's not forget my disturbing fascination with zombie games.

But ultimately, I didn't have to think that hard to choose my all-time favorite iPhone game. Any guesses?

It's Angry Birds, by far the best 99 cents I've ever spent on a game. So help me, I cannot get enough of flinging birds at pigs. Cute, funny, easy to learn, occasionally tough to beat, and always enticing me to play "just one more level."

That's my pick. What's yours? Hit the comments and nominate your top iPhone game. Can't choose just one? OK, hit me with your second favorite, too.
