Did somebody love you enough to get you an iPad for the holidays? Or perhaps you loved yourself enough (not like that, pervert) to buy a ticket to the tablet revolution. However you ended up with an iPad, let IGN be the first to welcome you to the party. That's no oversized iPod Touch you're holding. It's a portal. It leads to fun, information, entertainment, socializing, and a whole new way to interact with the Internet. Oh, and it plays games, too – a lot of games.
The iPad App Store is loaded with games, but we're not going to lie: the majority of them are crap. Let's not drop coins in the cans of cheapie developers shoveling out garbage games in hopes of cashing in on your iPad excitement. No, these are the first seven games you should download for your iPad. From action epics to board games to mysterious adventures, these games will show you what the iPad is truly capable of. And just think, it hasn't even been out for a whole year. Imagine what developers will wring out of the iPad in the next twelve months.
