Portal, Portal, Portal, Portal


Peggle, Peggle, Peggle, Peggle


Shadow Complex


Easily the best 3 Arcade games on the 360, IMHO.

I really like Geometry Wars 2. The first one was great and the second is much better.


I second Shadow Complex, great game that should be played by everyone.

The lack of Peggle on your lists means you guys are missing out on one of the most addictive games ever to be made. It may look kiddy, but spend 5 minutes with it and you'll be stuck on it for hours at a time. TRY the demo, and tell me you wouldn't wanna play more.

I'd say buying Trials is certainly worth it, but I've seen many complain about the later levels in the game. buyer beware that the later levels do have a HIGH degree of difficulty, but so awesome if you enjoy that type of thing.


Many people thought it was going to be a casual racing game almost, not a complex platformer.

Ever since Double Dragon was removed from XBLA, nothing has been worth buying! I'm kidding, of course...


I own more than 20 XBLA games, but Trials HD and Pinball FX are the only ones I routinely play. Oh, and Double Dragon.

Ikaruga. Hard as nails, but oh so much fun.


Braid was fun while it lasted...I just felt it was too short given what I paid for it.

Ikaruga - best shmup ever made (and in HD!)
Rez HD - Great music, great vibe, great shooting
Trials HD - Funky physics, but lots and lots of fun
Geo Wars 2 - has a ton of play modes, not one of which is a throw-away
Braid - Short but inventive puzzle platformer
Castle Crashers - Great mix of old arcade 2D brawler and light RPG
