Editors' note:Updated December 2, 2011, with five new games.

Wondering which games to buy for youriPad? Well, we've taken our best shot at putting together a list of top titles that we feel meet the criteria for a good iPad game.

And just what does make a good iPad game? We debated it for a while and narrowed it down to these five factors:

It's gotta be fun (obviously).Ergonomics (are the gameplay and control scheme well-suited to the iPad?)Uniqueness (though many iPad games play well as upconverted, higher-resolution versions of theiriPhone predecessors, we respect new, iPad-exclusive games).Value (some of the best iPad games currently carry high price tags, but we also tried to include titles we thought were simply a good value).Show-off quotient (extra points if the game flat-out looks good).

With that in mind, here are our current favorites, displayed in alphabetical order. Feel free to sound off with your own picks (or criticize our choices). With new games coming out almost daily, we update this list frequently and take your suggestions to heart.

This holiday season, it's hard to avoid Infinity Blade II. However, there are a few other recent games we're excited about as well: Aquaria, W.E.L.D.E.R., and others. And, as always, there are plenty of fantastic games buried in the App Store that are worth checking out.
