Taxes Hold'em is really fun when you have nothing to do late at night.

geometry wars. its addictive and fun and the achievements are very hard so you'll need to spend a lot of time getting them, which makes the game worth yur money

Geometry Wars and Castlevania: SOTN both are amazing

Castlevania SOTN, Aegis Wing and Zuma.

Seriously, Zuma is as close to digital crack as I can find. Castlevania is the best game in a series that has endured for decades, and Aegis Wing multiplayer is just awesome.

I tend to get bored with Arcade games rather quickly. Much as retail games the only ones really worth it are the ones with fun multiplayer.

Texas Hold'Em
Spades
UNO
Heavy Weapon

Aegis Wing, Cloning Clyde, Uno, and Frogger are the best arcade games.

Frogger is the best though, don't hate. :D

My vote is for Geometry Wars and Marble Blast.

Id say Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 :)

Yeah I agree. This is DEFINATELY the BEST fighting game for 360, let alone arcade.

Anyway, I'd also like to include Hexic HD. It's my favorite puzzle arcade game, and plus it's free...Street Fighter is pretty cool as welll.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Arcade, but I have always been a fan of Galaga. I don't know why...

Is that the one that's like Super Smash Brothers?

Yes. And it is pretty fun although it gets old quickly. I'm sure it would be better if I had friends to play it with and not just lil' random kids.

Best single player = Castlevania

Time-wasting single player = Soltrio Solitaire

Best fun multiplayer = UNO

Best competetive multiplayer = Catan/Texas Hold 'Em

I'm not quite sure what else to put, those are pretty much the only arcade games I play now except UNO and Texas Hold 'Em. Recently there haven't been as many good arcade titles.

Free? I never knew that game was free. Well, now because of you I have a new game.

My favorite Arcade game so far is Alien Hominid.
