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]

Asphalt 5 doesn't start on my Bionic...says it's not supported. I got A Space Shooter, Gun Bros, and Contract Killer. All my other games aren't super amazing graphically lol.

Bionic owners,
You can get Asphalt 6 and UNO HD for $.99/ea: https://t.co/JsuJRapa

The list in the original post has been updated with new games, screen captures have been added and re-sized. I hope you enjoy the games as much as I have. I'm going to try Rocket Bunnies, Breitling Reno Air Races, and Random Factor Mahjong next.

Thank you for your contributions, everyone! (XDA / Android Central / Droid Forums)
