They need to bring back XBL Summer Arcade it was a huge success on 360 and it really made up 360's lack of exclusive games with great indie arcade games.

This is a MUST bring it back MS.

Summer of Arcade was always awesome and I couldn't wait to see what they had lined up when this even came around the corner.

I agree with Angelic, this needs to come back to 360 and X1 as well as Kotaku reviewing the XNA games for 360. I always enjoyed them going through the many, many games XNA had and picking out the best ones.

I loved the summer arcade specials, especially when they would have deals like by 4 and get 1200 MS points

Ps how'd u get bubbles back when you got stomped to one?

He is one hundred percent correct on this. They did pick the best of the indies and made them arcade title, then the summer of arcades was the absolute cream of the crop.

They brought forth some of the best indies that are still considered classics to this day. Limbo, Braid, Super Meat Boy, etc.

Time will have no effect on Braid.... Brilliant game.
