Recently, a new report from Flurry Analytics shows that Apple's iPad seen as next great portable video game device. Developers are now gearing up to unleash their wares on Apple's iPad. Indeed, with the iPad's larger touchscreen, and the manner in which it's held and interacted with being very different to using an iPhone, the iPad is simply crying out to be used as a gaming platform. Here we take a look at the 10 best iPad games we can't wait to play on the new iPad.

Best iPad Game 1 - Flight Control
Firemint was tight-lipped when we asked how Flight Control, its line-drawing masterpiece, will be reworked for the iPad, only noting it'll do "more than just upsize the graphics". Bigger maps are a possibility, but what we'd really like to see is a split-screen simultaneous two-player mode. Get this best iPad game from iTunes

Best iPad Game 2 - Monopoly
The iPad has the potential to revolutionise board games. No more fiddly pieces, setting things up, and yelling as your dog's wagging tail demolishes everything. On the iPhone, the screen is too small to comfortably play the likes of Monopoly, but the iPad's 10 or so inches should be enough. Get this best iPad game from iTunes

Best iPad Game 3 - Tiger Woods Golf
Tiger Woods may not be hitting the real links anytime soon, but an iPad version of EA's golf franchise would be able to show off the green in far greater detail. Get this best iPad game from iTunes

Best iPad Game 4 - FIFA 10
EA's footie game FIFA 10 suffers somewhat on the iPhone due to a small viewing area and controls being placed over in-game graphics. With more space to play with, the experience would be so much better, although we suspect this'd be a game played with the iPad flat on a table (or docked and with a hypothetical Bluetooth controller).

Best iPad Game 5 - Missile Command
Dave Theurer's Cold War classic Missile Command converted brilliantly to the iPhone, with the arcade original's trackball controls being replaced by prod-based targeting. On the iPad, this retro title would also shine (and enable Atari to make a better job of the 'modern' remake, hitting back at Pangea's Warheads). Get this best iPad game from iTunes

Best iPad Game 7 - Command and Conquer

C&C is another RTS, but it's worth highlighting on its own as a more dynamic, action-oriented game with lots of simultaneous action. We'd also like to see Company of Heroes make its way onto the iPad. Get this best iPad game from iTunes

Best iPad Game 8 - ATV Offroad
While EA got its Need for Speed plug at launch, several iPhone racing titles should transition nicely over to the iPad. We like what 2XL has done on the iPhone and its racing games should get ported over quickly to the iPad. Jumbo versions of Mario Kart style titles like Shrek Karting should also make the jump.

Best iPad Game 9 - Lucky Coins
Lucky Coins is great, like Peggle with more skill and less randomness. However, strategic play is curtailed somewhat by not being able to see enough of each level—something that can be instantly dealt with if the game is reworked for the iPad. Get this best iPad game from iTunes

Best iPad Game 10 - Missile Defense
There's been a YouTube video going around where some guys are playing Missile Command on a huge touchscreen. The iPad's not that big, but Missile Command-style games would be more appealing on a larger screen. Get this best iPad game from iTunes
