My hundreds of hours clocked in Reign (turn based strategy game) would beg to differ. Or the hours in Bejeweled... or Scramble... or Trace... or JellyCar... or TapDefense... or Aurora Feint. I've found myself sitting around on the couch playing tons of random great games on my iPhone while neglecting my consoles or PC. If you get bored with a game, then you're just a few clicks away from something new.

There are a set of multi-player games that currently use this capability on the iPhone in a fairly non-intrusive way. iMob, iKnight, iVampire, etc. They are all the exact same game, with the graphics and terminology changed. Anyways, they use the location feature to connect you with other players in your general area. You can invite them to your 'guild' and that's pretty much the end of it. The game doesn't give away your location, only that your within a few (probably hundred) miles of X player.
