There are about 48 released or announced games now in total, it's getting very close to the original gen's 56 already.
I think 2009 will be a make-or-break year for N-Gage, as that's when Nokia should be able to have it built into every new S60 device including the cheapest models (it could take a while to get to the touchscreen models though).
After that happens, we'll start to find out whether N-Gage is a success or not. Not everyone will use N-Gage because not everyone plays phone games, but if they can get just a fraction of S60 owners to use N-Gage that will give them a healthy userbase.

Wow, Pandemonium! Will that be the enhanced remake of the PS1 title? That would be cool. So far, today's announcements are absolutely cool for N-Gage. A big day, yo!

Sandy, we don't know anything about Pandemonium, but that would be what we'd guess.
Or it could be some totally new game under the same brand...?

Fantastic! A really good range of games too. Monopoly on-line with some Chinese dude or a guy in Argentina while lounging in Norway (?! ;)) could be sweet for example.
Hope Tomb Raide auto-run-my-sweet-ass can at least be turned off (so that I can be properly turned on.. ok, too much information right there).
Good to see Pandemonium too.. it looked great even on the original N-Gage.
All we need now is a worthy follow up for Colin McRae Rally.. *dreaming*
There are already videos on YouTube of Pandemonium running on N95 (search for "pandemonium n95"). Not the n-gage version, of course, but I imagine it will be a direct port. Looks pretty good - I remember the original game on the PC - one of the first platformers to support 3d accelerators that I can remember (I don't think this one is using it on the phone, but not a problem).
Edit: And great news to hear of more support from the big names. I hope that more effort is put in to Sims 3 than was put in to the Pets game!

There is technically a game called World Rally Championship on the announced games list, it was annouced a long time ago (beginning of the year?) but we haven't heard anything about it since.
BTW I'm surprised people are getting excited about Pandemonium, I thought everyone had forgotten about that series? I loved it on the original N-Gage, nice 2D platform gameplay with 3D graphics to show off the hardware. Still don't understand how it got such mediocre reviews at the time...
