It's not out yet but I don't see them messing it up so... Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo FTW.

One of my favorite games of all time.

Streets of Rage 2 will be my fav. XBLA game once it comes out.

Catan.

There is no competition.

Castlevania: SOTN is a close runner up though.

Spyglass is my current favorite, for all of its flaws, like the lack of tutorials for games like Mancala, the ridiculous computer AI for Othello (I actually read up about this. The only way to defeat the computer is really more luck than strategy; a computer can see so much farther into possible moves and repercussions that a human cannot really compete. Luckily, this isn't a supercomputer, but it still has a distinct advantage. However, online, Othello is a blast.) and, to a lesser extent, Chess, and all of these are coupled with the fact that I suck at checkers. It's still the best game of the summer, possibly with the exception of Pac Man: Championship Edition.

All time though, I have to give the nods to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, Robotron: 2084, and Root Beer Tapper, in that order.

Castlevania: SotN is by far the best. Street Fighter 2 close second. Gawd I want the HD remix now!

08-07-2007, 06:55 PM
Bomberman Live is the current best game IMO.

Until it dies or I find something better.....

Marble Blast pretty cool.

alex4283
08-07-2007, 07:00 PM
streets of rage 2 will hold that spot for a while when it is released.

for now it's a tie between castlevania sotn and lumines

Yoshi6107
08-08-2007, 01:20 PM
Castlevania SOTN for sure.

Geometry Wars, while incredibly difficult, would be my runner up.

Hexic is fun, Cloning Clyde was awesome, Spyglass has been my lastest XBLA game played and it's great! I look forward to getting Bomberman Live as I've heard it's also a great game!

danjohnson58
08-08-2007, 06:10 PM
SOR2 when it's released but for now i'll settle with Goldenaxe

Brings back childhood memorys!

DieselV2
08-08-2007, 06:30 PM
Sonic is always great as it's a classic but for me it's in second place. My favourite XBLA game would have to be.....Hexic HD. Looking forward to Hexic 2

I never heard of The Settlers of Catan until the arcade release. I now play Catan daily (the actual board game) and I am still working on the 500 and 1000 stars. It is a great board game and plays really well on live.

Pyroman31

I'd have to say MBU. I love that game...really addicting.

Marathon, Doom and Boom Boom Rocket is all you'll ever need.

Gold Rush NL

All my arcade games from good to bad.

1 Hexic HD
2 Aegis Wing
3 Texas Hold'em
4 Mad Tracks

Sonic the Hedgehog. Can't beat the classics.

Elite Assassin
08-08-2007, 10:22 PM
Out of all the ones that I have I would have to say Texas Holdem for sure. I have seen some rather interesting choices but the worst one would be Hexic HD what a bad game. Why would that be a choice to even think about as being THE BEST. It doesn't compete but if that is what you choose ok. I'll definatly be getting a few of the games mentioned though.

The only way to defeat the computer is really more luck than strategy; a computer can see so much farther into possible moves and repercussions that a human cannot really compete.

I have played Othello for years and found it quite easy to beat the AI, same with chess. My first game of checkers I sucked, but that was the only time the computer has beaten me.

However, my favorite is MBU, followed by Heavy Weapon and Boom Boom Rocket. Too bad the DLC for BBR never showed up like the developer promised. :confused:

SeriousIle
08-09-2007, 04:48 PM
MY favourites would be feeding frenzy and assault heroes. co-op is a blast. Rally-x was fun too. Only ones i regret buying were probably Bejeweled 2 and root beer tapper... Not really that fun to play because thay are so damn hard to archieve anything. Flame me but thats just my opinion:p

MASTERCHEAT
08-10-2007, 02:12 AM
Marble Blast Ultra because it the best XBLA game to custom if u have Creator's Club.

Enter The Nutty
08-10-2007, 02:35 AM
my vote is for Bomberman Live....god that game is addicting

Castlevania is #1 for me with Catan being second. After that for me, it's Carcasssonne. Even my wife is hooked on Carcassonne.

09-01-2007, 09:04 PM
It's a toss up for me between UNO and Catan. I even managed to get my wife addicted to Catan.

PerpetualHeaven
09-04-2007, 05:48 PM
I don't have a single favourite and it's hard to pick. But here's my slightly short list of my favourites ;)

-Super Puzzle Fighter (need to download this soon)
-Hexic 1+2
-UMK3
-Boom Boom Rocket
-Streets of Rage 2
-Sonic The Hedgehog
-Bomberman Live
-Worms
-Bejeweled
-Zuma

Honorable Mentions:
-Castlevania Symphony of the Night
-Eets: Chowdown
-Heavey Weapon

I don't own most of them and that's because I have other things on my list I have to take care of first. *tear* But yeah big list. I know it said single favourite but I don't have a single favourite one. I'm just like that. All rebellious and what not.

My favourite gotta be Castlevania: SOTN, followed closely by Marble Blast Ultra.

I loved the game on the PSX, and to add it to the XBLA with achievements was a dream come true. I also like the lifespan of the game. Not many arcade games could keep my attention fixated on them like this one.

Marble Blast Ultra was great too. I always used to play Marble Madness and the like as a kid on my Sega Master System & Megadrive, and a 3D version totally floated my boat.

Yah I really like BBR too, but is it just me or is that game insanely difficult?

2. Spyglass Board Games ( I have not bought it yet, will soon though)
3. Small Arms

My favourite atm, which nobody has mentioned, is Alien Hominid HD, its so fun and fast paced :) with great humour and really creative bosses, but it does get pretty goddamn hard!

BTW, I'm about to go buy Marble Blast Ultra, been considering it for ages, hopefully I won't regret it!

Theres a bunch that i like but honestly i have to say that my favorite game ever after a night of drinking is track and field. I used to play it as a little kid and its great to be able to play it again.

09-08-2007, 11:07 PM
The best game on XBLA is probably Castlevania: SOTN. You definitely get the most "game" for 800 points and its arguably one of the greatest classics.

Aegis Wing is great too, probably because I'm a huge shooter fan and there aren't many on the 360 yet. Being a free XBLA game helps too. :p

Of course Bomberman and Puzzle fighter are awesome. I'd say bomberman is probably the best multiplayer game on XBLA. Then again, I'm a big bomberman fan. :) If anyone ever needs another bomber, be sure to message me. :boxer
