Gotta say, I'm a sucker for Geometry Wars. The sequel has robbed me of sleep for 3 straight days

Bionic Commando Rearmed. I played the original and it was challenging enough to keep me entertained.

I'm really looking forward to Castle Crashers. TMNT Arcade was one of my favorite XBLA games, and I'm dying for a new 4-player beat-em-up experience!

Braid really has to be one of the best Summer of Arcade game. I mean look even with its price tag it got great exposure and was well received by the gaming community, the head cheap ass himself bought the game. Not to mention Braid made me feel like I was reliving the Mario games in some alternate universe where Mario would look like a little hobbit/elf? I mean when I first played the trial before the game was out, after I was at the end it said the princess is not here. How many people do not remember that from the Mario games.

Yes it was short, yes it was a tad expensive for a game that has no re sale value, but like Mrs.Shipwreck said if you enjoyed the game, no way is it a rip off of any sorts.

braid, the demo just hooked me really well, but im too cheap/lazy to bug my parents to use their credit charge to but this game that's 4-5 hours. though $3 per hour of game time isn't so bad on second thought, the fact that there is no case, manual, and or disc is a big drawback in my book. me mbeing a collector and all. however, if this and the other 5 games came out on a compilation of some kind for $60 or less i would buy it in a heart beat!
the last compilation that microsoft did (which you can find in the bargain bin of almost any game store for less than $10 mabye even $5) was all lame puzzle games. and the games are alot cheaper than braid and the other games coming out. so i doubt micro$oft would make that 6 game compilation cuz they would making a pretty substantial lo$$. but if the games all sell exceptionally well i can see them doing it later on down the road.

チクショーヨ! thats a long contest entry :P

So far, really digging gallaga. But I'm looking forward to Castle Crashers the most, it just looks like fun plain and simple. It's bout time for a new beat-em-up and online I can imagine this being amazing!

I was most excited about Braid after I played the demo but originally my sites were set on Castle Crashers. I just love the way Braid makes you take some time to think.

I want to see if Banjo has aged well. I fear not. But at 40 smackeroonies, I'd be mad not to.

Castle Crashers! Hopefully it doesn't suck because I've been waiting for it for forever and a half.

I'm going to have to go with Bionic Commando Rearmed. I really like when they redo an older game and it's actually fun. The D-pad is annoying but not enough to ruin the experience.

Definitely the new Geometry Wars! I must have played at least one million games of the first one and even bought a DS so I could get another fix. The only thing I am missing is a Wii and that version. With so many good new games coming out for the 360, I don't think a Wii will be in my budget anytime soon!

In the mean time, I am still having a blast with Geo2. I still have a few achievements to go, but I play everyday to try to improve my scores and to catch my friends. They are much better than I am, but that doesn't stop me from playing hours every day! The 360 rocks!

Bionic Commando: Rearmed. It's just an awesome remake of the NES classic I grew up with. Lot's of fond memories, and a few moments of wanting to snap the controller in half.

Not yet having played Castle Crashers, I'd have to say that Geometry Wars is my favorite. It just has that one more game mentality that made things like Tetris so great. The way they've made the scoreboards a more important part of the game is a big upside as well. And unlike the original GW, it always looks like it's possible to get just a few more points the next time you play.
