I love Assault Heros and the Mutant Storm games. Both handle the same way, left stick to move and right stick to shoot in that direction. There are plenty of other great ones out there though. What kind of games are you into? Action? Puzzle? Classics?

i was kind of thinking heavy metal, how are the achievements in it?

Geometry Wars for playability.. Achievements are kind of difficult..

Uno i'd say for easy ones

^This should help a bit.

My personal favourite is Worms followed by Outpost Kaloki X but both take a while to get anywhere.

i would have to go with 3d minigolf as my best arcade game to date, very enjoyably.

I have a blast playing Pac-Man. I don't have it for the 360 but I have the plug and play version. I think that will be the first arcade game I will buy, next to UNO and some others.

My favourites Mortal Kombat 3, it all depends on what genre of game and the period you grew up in. Give us some details and we'd probably be able to give you a better answer.

Dragonfire 360

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
Geometry Wars

Those are my favorites.

Get Track & Field and Golden Axe.
Both are really enjoyable, easyish points but great fun to play.

The two I've probably enjoyed the most are Castlevania: SOTN and Marble Blast Ultra.

Castlevania has lasted me roughly for as long as an average retail game and Marble Blast Ultra is just cool. :p

what do you mean by stupid achievements? stupid easy or stupid hard?

i was kind of thinking heavy metal, how are the achievements in it?

heavy metal's good i had a lot of fun with it. the achievements are kinda tough though...then again i don't have too many 100% anyway...

Yeah, Heavy Metal is fun, the achievements are hard because for the story mode you have to do it single player for the achievements..I learned that one the hard way, spending 2 hours playing it with a friend to end up with nothing.
I'd say its fairly easy to get about half the points. It is a good game I come back to occasionally.

1: Castlevania: SoTN
2: Puzzle Quest
3: Omega 5

Castelvania is a fun game and very long for an arcade title, it's fun to play over and over again in different ways.

Puzzle quest is another long game with a decent story and unique style to it, it makes bejewled style games actually fun.

Omega 5 is a more classic side scrolling shooter that is really fun to play, a bit challenging but so far I've had fun every time I've played it.

i would have to say geometry wars for entertainment galaga/ms pacman for classic fun and easy achievements...worms for fun and pretty easy achievements

01-28-2008, 04:45 AM
i would suggest 'small arms'. only cost you 400 points, alot of fun, fairly easy achievements, great online play. dont get pacman, you will want to kill yourself on the last achievement.

Geometry wars is awesome, but almost impossible to get all 200 pts. in, and switchball is a fun puzzle game with pretty easy achievements. I haven't played any new ones since around Dec. 20th, so I don't know if any of the new ones are any good.

Geometry Wars FTW! :Bounce::woop::Bounce::woop:
