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?

#2 Posted by BlackSuitAndTie9 (289 posts) -

UNO is probably my favorite.

#3 Posted by ROWD (129 posts) -

Castlevania : SOTN has to be may favorite.

#4 Posted by Martyr (34 posts) -

Geometry Wars is probably my favorite, although I also really enjoyed Marble Blast Ultra.

#5 Posted by NotaStalker (172 posts) -

Geometry Wars is the best xbla game (confirmed)

#6 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

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

#7 Posted by Hannibal (863 posts) -

Geometry Wars.

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

#8 Posted by Calidreth (126 posts) -
Castlevania: SOTN.

Marble Blast Ultra would have to be the runner up -- very addicting.
#9 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3505 posts) -

Puzzle Quest or Catan

#10 Posted by Rex (80 posts) -

I actually love UNO.

#11 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

UNO & Geo Wars.

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

#12 Posted by Dj (913 posts) -

Its a toss up between Puzzle Quest and Pac Man CE.

#13 Posted by DirrtyNinja (715 posts) -
Soul Calibur.
#14 Posted by Wildfire570 (719 posts) -

Wow I didn't know that uno was so popular.

#15 Posted by Godzilla_Sushi (1085 posts) -

The right answer here is Uno.

#16 Posted by JoelTGM (5599 posts) -

That's easy, Geometry Wars.

#17 Posted by RedSox8933 (2428 posts) -

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

#18 Posted by logson (521 posts) -

If you have Gold, Uno. If not, Puzzle Quest.

#19 Posted by Strife88 (225 posts) -

Castlevania: SOTN.

#20 Posted by idiotic_genius1 (416 posts) -

Castlevania is my favorite as well.

Wasn't this exact topic posted before?

#21 Posted by Railer (100 posts) -

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.

#22 Posted by SoloReX (61 posts) -

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).

street fighter 2:HF or UMK3. cant wait for Street Fighter 2 HD REMIX

#24 Posted by Subway (971 posts) -

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

#25 Edited by heretrix (83 posts) -

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.

#26 Posted by JJGIANT (760 posts) -

Assualt hereos, puzzle quest and SouCalibur are my faves

#27 Posted by Contra_dk (165 posts) -

Geometry Wars. I can't friggin' wait for the sequel. Multiplayer is gonna be sweet.

#28 Posted by Dual (45 posts) -

Geometry Wars

#29 Posted by Gorillawhat (1259 posts) -

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.

#30 Posted by scatterbrainn (33 posts) -
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
#31 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

Right now, Geometry Wars.

#32 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

Cloning Clyde

#33 Posted by CoolDrMoney (1978 posts) -

Probably Marble Blast Ultra, though I haven't bought N+ yet and I really liked the demo

#34 Posted by scfan3 (27 posts) -

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.

#35 Posted by BlindEffekt (917 posts) -

Puzzle Quest.

#36 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

I spent a big chunk of time on Contra to get all the achievements. It was pretty fun though.

#37 Posted by MrRetep (81 posts) -

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.
#47 Posted by chronicsmoke (1001 posts) -

UMK3 or castlevania

#48 Edited by brooklyngrenade (446 posts) -

Are you in the "I love Alien Hominid so I'll buy Castle Crashers also" boat?
#50 Posted by MsCortana (429 posts) -

Doom is definitely a favorite of mine...
