I'll be on three flights in the next 11 days, and although I'd like to sleep through every flight, I doubt that'll happen. I have an iPhone 4 and a 3rd-gen iPod Touch at my disposal, so I'd like to throw some new, non-battery-killing games on them before I go. [more inside]

What computer games right now have the best graphics? I'm writing a paper on shadow perception, and want to discuss the representation of shadows in graphics. It'd be really nice to get some examples of the state of the art. But I'm not a gamer so I have no idea what this is! Gamer mefites, please hope me...

I'm doing a mini-research project on wireframe graphics in gaming. What are the definitive wireframe games? I know about Tempest, I know about Battlezone, and I know about the Star Wars Cockpit Arcade game. What other titles should I add to my list?

PC performance issues. 1) Is it a good idea to fill up all 3 of my DIMM slots, when my motherboard manual says that the max speed will be DDR 200 instead of DDR 400? The motherboard is an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe.
2) How do I best identify the bottlenecked hardware component that's causing framerate jerkiness e.g. when playing Oblivion (e.g. RAM, processor, AGP card)?
