Because the Ipad1 is showing its age. Before my wife gave me the Ipad1 last year, she was complaining about how it was always crashing to the desktop when ever a program seemed to be pushing the Ipads limits. And the games she played were like Angry Birds.

Most of the new games require the IOS 6 version, whereas the IPad1 can only go as high as IOS 5.9. The machine is still good for a whole bunch of other reasons, but it's pretty clear it's on its last gaming legs.

Being a gamer from the 80s, my days of tooling around tyring to get a game to run are far behind me. I refuse to go back to those days. Hence, no longer spending any time to get a contemporary game in an old machine. If they don't do it for me (GOG.com), then I ain't playing.
