TL;DR - Help me make a list of graphically intense games which natively support Droid Bionic. Please provide a link if possible, especially if the game is only available outside of Android Market.

Please check your Gameloft hate at the door. Yes, I despise their policy of side stepping the Android Market so they can disallow transfer of purchased games when you upgrade your phone, but that's not what this thread is about.

I'm looking for graphically intense games for Droid Bionic and am extremely disappointed with my findings. It appears that the game selection is very limited due to Droid Bionic's lack of Tegra 2. I'd like your help making a list of compatible, beautiful games.

I hear that I can download a hack (Chainfire 3D) to install third party graphics drivers, adding compatibility for some games. I have little interest in this unreliable workaround.

[Asphalt 5 removed: incompatible]
[Assassin's Creed removed: incompatible]
[Neocore (benchmark) removed: not a game]

Chain fire just installs the tegra driver. You install apps via tegra game zone. I hardly call that a cracked APKs. Guess your just have to wait it out.

Chainfire does not crack apks, and you still pay for them in the market just as you would any other app. You certainly have every right to refuse to use chainfire, but don't spread misinformation or imply that it supports stealing games.

Post updated. How do you purchase apps that haven't whitelisted your specific device? Sorry for the assumption, but everywhere I read about that driver hack, people were asking for cracked APKs to run the games. I also read many reports of the hack having no effect on Gameloft games incompatibility.

Wow! That is a lot of games! I like this thread but I am going to have to take some time to look at all these and see what they are. I am hesitant about buying a game after some of the duds I bought on my OG Droid.

N.O.V.A. 2 should be compatible. Make sure you aren't selecting the 3D version if the games. You may only select the HD non-3D games. Just use the link I provided above.
