Speaking of games The Game Room was such a fucking waste

Wow its not really ''Free'' once you think about it cause you have to buy everything in it its total bullshit. Racked up my 15 GS in it and will never play it again. Everything is demos its a total waste of the download time it took me to get.

Who else hated this shit.
I am now retired from this site, because of the horrible community. R. I. P.

I don't think it was ever marketed as free. The HUB is free, just like Pinball FX2, Family Game Night, etc.

I like the games and all but they're a little pricey to me.

Not a waste, just a wasted opportunity.

The idea behind it was good. Play old school game in a virtual arcade with your avatars. I like stuff where my avatar actually becomes useful. (In a limited sense anyway)

This could have been soo much better. Add in games that aren't so old, or sell them cheaper because 240 is too much for an old old game. Especially cos you're not paying for a physical copy.

Definitely not a waste. Aside from the fact that they no longer seem to add anything new to it, I feel like it's my best purchase so far online. There are a decent chunk of games on it that are still great fun to play, assuming you like retro score based games, and even the ones that aren't so fun to play, are still neat to get a chance to try out.

I would agree with some of the posts here, good intentions poor implementation. I don't think it should've been as pricey and I definitely think that they could've included more in each purchase. Like many others, once I found out I had to pay for each level of games and what not, I was done with it.

Good idea, failed execution
Ultimately this is one of the top 3 Xbox Live fails
