The only XBLA games I have is Undertow and Poker Smash but that's it. I'm not sure what are good XBLA games or which games are lame. What games are really worth the MS Points?

I really like Poker Smash and Feeding Frenzy is a little guilty pleasure of mine.

Geometry Wars.

I've spent a TON of time on Uno though.

Castlevania: SOTN.

Marble Blast Ultra would have to be the runner up -- very addicting.

UNO & Geo Wars.

I guess UNO is my favorite because there's online.

The right answer here is Uno.

N+, although i'm getting an ulcer playing that game. Ikaruga is also a favorite of mine.

My personal favorite arcade game so far is N+. Although with all the new neat titles coming out soon I'm guessing that will change.

Hard to choose one particular title. I have enjoyed playing Castlevania: SOTN, N+, UNO, Prince of Persia, Pac-Man C.E. and Jetpac Refuelled. If i'd have to narrow it down my top 3 would be: Prince of Persia, Castlevania. SOTN and N+. In no particular order (Well okay, maybe a shared first place for PoP and SOTN and N+ in a close third :-p).

Geometry wars, Pac Man Championship Edition, and Poker Smash are my favorites.

Geometry Wars, Hexic HD, Pacman Championship ed., Castlevania, Penny Arcade Adventures, Puzzle Quest, REZ HD and Uno.

I don't regret buying any of those except for Hexic, which I got for free. XBLA gets bashed for having garbage, but there are a lot of good games on there. You should check out the board game remakes like Carcassonne and the like...
My favorite is REZ HD. So damn trippy.

My favorite so far has definitely been Alien Hominid. Right now I'm really looking forward to Bionic Commando Re-armed, Geometry Wars 2 and Castle Crashers.

N+ is addicting as hell, and incredibly difficult...I love it. Worms is fun, too. Castle Crashers will be my go-to game pretty soon, and possibly one of the best on XBLA

Marble Blast Ultra....seriously, I was addicted to that game for weeks after I bought it.  Started playing again a few weeks ago and almost got addicted all over again.

Holy man, I tottaly forgot N+! That game is an effing drug! But goddamit I stopped playing it when I got stuck around level 40 ish, so hard. We should play online together sometime, no one ever plays multiplayer, it is so epic.

Are you in the "I love Alien Hominid so I'll buy Castle Crashers also" boat?
