    Favorite XBL Arcade Game?

    Whats your favorite XBOX Live Arcade Game?
    Right now mines Geometry Wars, I'm not the best at it but I love it!
    I just got Small Arms, which also owns, but haven't spent to much time with it yet

    yet theres so many great arcade games coming out this year, like Alien Hominid, Boom Boom Rocket, and all these weird cool ones of which I can't remember their names. But thanks Wii, for making the XBL Arcade become a little more competetive (or atleast thats what it seems to be doing)

    Haven't downloaded many, but my fave's probably Marble Blast Ultra, even though some of the later levels are insanely hard.

    Can't wait for Symphony of the Night! :thumbsup:

    To be honest i dont think x box live arcade has really released anything retro that was really good yet saying that worms is on its way. The wii has the vc which is far better but again it should be with the licences it has. In fact Nintendo should have the retro scene all but 1. But there is a lot of for and against for both systems anyway 360 has a lot better graphics and online gameing Nintendo has games with mega gamplay i guess it depends what you are after from a gameing point of view. Im sure its a battle and one that will be spoke about on forums across the globe. But for me retro goes to Nintendo.

    classics like
    Uno
    SMASH TV
    Dig Dug
    Galaga
    Frogger
    Street Fighter
    Rootbeer Tapper
    Paperboy..
    arent good enough? Since you obviously like Nintendo, i think the reason you like the VC is because it is NIntendo games?

    There is good games on x box live arcade just not classics paperboy is ok but where is the real classics like streets of rage , microsoft have the rare licence so where is killer instinct, banjo kazooie, goldeneye , if you want to go and get games like dig dug fair enough but you can use emu,s on a pc why pay 400 or so points for them. And regarding the wii i bought mine for the vc games my choice i own both machines these also sell games for points which i could play on a pc with a emu the games on the vc are simply better
    Sonic was meant to go on x box live arcade where is it. worms is coming those are classics and if you asked people if they wanted games like root beer tapper, or goldeneye or road rash for example most would pick goldeneye , or road rash over root beer tapper . i personally would like to see Track n field on x box live arcade and that is a fairly old title but it mostly comes down to personal choice. Street fighter is a stand out title on live arcade but there are more classics which should be on there Fatal fury , samurai warriors to name a couple.

    marble blaster ultra is really popular (just saying its not like it was created just for the arcade) but im sure you knew that
    theres also the game I just downloaded, Small Arms, which is a Super Smash bros "clone" reason why clone is quoted is because you can tell it was intended to be the Microsoft fix for SSB, but its entirely different, its mostly about guns
