So I bought a second hand xbox from a friend of mine for £70 (great deal, even for an older model MW2 edition with a slightly reluctant disc drive).

I purchased Fez, which while flawed, may be my Game of the Year right now.

I also got Mark of the Ninja, which I love, but haven't played much of yet.

I am looking for some that can't really be experienced on PS3, because I have had a PS3 a while, and feel like making the most of my new console. So just throw at me the best XBLA or IBLIG you can think of. Throw in some multi-platform ones if you like, but exclusives prefered.

Thanks :)

Dust: An Elysian Tail is one of the best games i ever played, my GOTY and worth more than its $15 asking price. Check it out ;)

Main one I can think of that hasn't been said yet is Bastion, that is if you haven't already played it on PC or something. Oh, I really liked the XBLA version of Half-Minute Hero, too.

Mark of the Ninja... of course. Oh you played it... just saw Fez.

Nope ur all set!

I still think Hell Yeah! is really good. That's not xbox exclusive tho. Spelunky maybe?

Minecraft if you don't have a computer is alot of fun.
Alot of the other great games have been mentioned.
The cool thing about 360 over ps3 is every arcade game has a trail so you can atleast give all the games a shot before you commit to buying them.

If you haven't played it yet, play The Walking Dead.

Let's take it way back to Geometry Wars 2. As several others have mentioned, Shadow Complex is one of the best games on XBLA.

pssst. he says right in his post that he has Fez and it's his GOTY so far.

I can no longer afford one, but based on tehse suggestions, I intend to get Trials Evolution very soon, Shadow Complex, Castle Crashers (despite being available on PS3), The Walking Dead (on any platform, but probably 360), Iron Brigade.

I'll also check out Hell Yeah, Dust and Deadlight. I may also buy Bastion again for 360, seeing as I currently have it on Google Chrome (yes, the browser) and Mac.

I may just have to ask for a ton of Microsoft Points for christmas.

Nobody has mentioned Super Meat Boy.

I think that makes each and every one of you war criminals.

Pool Nation (haha...seriously, it's a pretty decent billiards game, but no one plays online)
