These are purely my personal opinions, so please no one hate me:

In complete honesty, I find the vast majority of XBLA games aren't fun to play.  At all.  The ones that are, are still not fun enough, or don't have enough content, to warrant their price.  Most of the games are silly remakes of old classic games, or remakes--even ripoffs--of free computer Flash games.  They also seem like they would be fun for only a couple hours or maybe a few days, possibly even a week at the most.
I won't promise you I've played every XBLA game demo, but to my knowledge, I've downloaded and played every demo.  No, you're right, a demo is not the whole game, but it gave me a taste of what I would be playing if I bought it.  And in nearly all cases I did not like the taste.  The only exceptions were Puzzle Quest and an Asteroid-esque shooter that I've forgotten the name of.  If I were going to buy any arcade game off of XBOX Live, it'd be those two.


So there's my piece. :]

Hexic (1 & 2) and UNO, because I own in Hexic and I like playing causal games like it and UNO!
