Uno hands down!

#52 Posted by BlindEffekt (920 posts) -

I bought Geometry Wars 2 about an hour ago. Awesome _b

#53 Posted by ArchScabby (5877 posts) -

geometry wars 2, braid, and ultra minigolf (I know, but me and my friends played this game to death and loved it)

#54 Posted by creamstatic (124 posts) -

for me, its Bionic Commando Re-Armed.
2nd is Braid

#55 Posted by BlindEffekt (920 posts) -

I haven't really tried braid, sounds like I'm missing out?

#56 Posted by slater45 (15 posts) -

i would have to say either worms, N+ or UNO

#57 Posted by AndrewGaspar (2559 posts) -

I only own one PSN game that's also on XBLM, and that's Bionic Commando Rearmed. That's my choice. =P

Also, you do know that there is a forum for XBLM, right?

#58 Posted by BlindEffekt (920 posts) -

This forum is better to discuss on.

I only have TMNT 2: The Arcade game so that wins by default.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed
Geometry Wars 2: Evolved
There are a few more, but these are the ones that really separate themselves from the rest.
#61 Posted by Bansheebot (49 posts) -

I really love Bionic Commando: Rearmed.  I'm a fan of the older, original NES version, so Rearmed was a welcome treat for me. 

Also, Geometry Wars and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are great.

My favorite is definitely BCR, now. Geometry Wars 2 is in second, and maybe UMK3 is a third.

#63 Posted by Anders (62 posts) -

GW2 ... but BC:R is pretty kick ass as well.

#64 Posted by Gamer_152 (14303 posts) -

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, but Retro Evolved 2 comes in at an extremely close second.

#65 Posted by DazTheNinja (7 posts) -

I'd have to say it's a tie between N+ and Braid - two amazing games.
Geometry Wars (both) deserves a mention though.

#66 Posted by chandlerr_360 (132 posts) -

Geometry Wars.

#68 Posted by purpleinsect (58 posts) -

Right now it's definitely Trials HD. Very addictive

#70 Posted by KingBroly (1699 posts) -

Castle Crashers 
Lots of replay value.  Good challenge.

#71 Posted by CptBedlam (4487 posts) -

Castlevania SotN and Catan.

#72 Posted by MrMatey72 (97 posts) -

It's easily Super Meat Boy for me.  I put more time into that game than most of my 360 games.  Game is so addictive.

Their is so many great games on XBLA, XBLA and PSN games are my favourite new feature of this generation of consoles. 
Geometry Wars1/2 are great games to play in short bursts.
Shadow Complex has that old school castlevania feel. 
Trails HD reminds me of being a 10 year old kid playing snes/mega drive games when difficulty was very hard and allot of the times cheap but the pay off was great when you finally got past the part you had been so frustrated with.  
Bastion I own on PC but have to mention as its allot of fun. 
Sensible World Of Soccer as its my favourite Amiga game ever. 
Sonic The Hedgehog 1-2-3 as I loved those games when I was a kid.  
Braid and Limbo are examples of great titles at a great price, One thing i miss about old generations is quality platformers, I would love to see the platforming genre evolve for this generation but their just has not been a developer willing to take a chance on a big budget platforming game, their has been ratchet but it mainly stuck to the formula of ps2 ratchets, My point being games like braid and limbo feel like the next gen evolution of platforming on a smaller scale. 
One i have not played yet but intend to purchase real soon is outland as I really enjoyed the demo.
Their are so many that I have enjoyed and i find it really difficult to name 1 or 3 titles I like the best but the ones I mentioned are definitely the titles I had the most fun with.

One of the best values is Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. 30 hour game for 15$. Having alot of fun with that one. Others are pretty obvious ones that everyone else is already mentioning.

#75 Edited by mnzy (2980 posts) -

Geometry Wars 2, probably.
Trials HD and Super Meat Boy after that.

#76 Posted by brundlefly (76 posts) -

Super Meat Boy 
Toy Soldiers Cold War 
Castle Crashers  

#77 Posted by Red5112 (13 posts) -

torchlight, bastion, LIMBO

#78 Posted by j3ffro919 (260 posts) -

Bastion was awesome, Trenched is fun, Stacking was great as well.

#79 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5098 posts) -

N+, Carcassone, Castle Crashers.

#80 Posted by Hizang (9359 posts) -


#81 Posted by Tacoboy1986 (172 posts) -

Super Meat Boy

#82 Posted by SUPES316UK (48 posts) -

Currently loving Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

No love for Shadow Complex?  I still play that game at least twice a year.  I wish Chair would quit making over priced Ipad games and make a sequel already.  Maybe one where you get to shoot Orson Scott Card for being a homophobic racist with libertarian ideas that even Ron Paul would think are a bit too out there.

#85 Posted by Robocoke (30 posts) -

SSF2THDR, Geometry Wars 2, Super Meat Boy

#87 Posted by pweidman (2454 posts) -

Pinball FX2 easily, but really enjoyed Torchlight even after playing most of it on pc.

#88 Posted by Spawning (5 posts) -

i did spend alot of time on both Geometry Wars... but i'd have to say Super Meat Boy,.. and if just picked up Trials HD n that's pretty good too

#89 Posted by shrinerr (161 posts) -

Bastion, Trenched, Monday Night Combat

#90 Posted by Still_I_Cry (2522 posts) -

Crimson Alliance so far.

#91 Posted by TerribleStapler (58 posts) -

Tough choices...

I'd have to go with Shadow Complex or Pac-Man Championship Edition DX in terms of games that most impressed me. Though it kills me to leave off either of the Monkey Island special editions, Sam and Max, Peggle and Plants vs Zombies. There are so many to choose from.

#92 Posted by dirkfunk (175 posts) -

Shadow Complex is my favorite. I only played through it once though. . .

In terms of a re-release, Symphony of the Night was the first one that really mattered to me. I own the PS1 version. . . but currently have no idea where it is (in a box, somewhere. . . in another state). So it was a great way to replay one of my favorite games of all time. The sound was a bit off, but still fantastic.

#93 Posted by Generiko (455 posts) -

Wow. This topic is old.

Anyways I'll go with Hydro Thunder Hurricane and Perfect Dark for re releases.

#94 Posted by Bulby33 (655 posts) -

Braid, no doubt in my mind. Shadow Complex is a close second.

#95 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8020 posts) -

Man that's tough....got to go with Doom II though, classic.
