OXCGN's Most Loved XBLA Games


"Not every quality gaming experience comes from a full retail-sized video game these days. The new surprising breed of gameplay fun can actually come from a downloaded smaller and less expensive bite-sized game from Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA), Playstation 3's Playstation Network (PSN), or Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console.

While we enjoy these downloadable games from all consoles (Flower is an amazing concept!), we will be looking at our staff's most loved XBLA games. See if you agree with us, or if you have your own favourites and comment at the bottom of the article." ( Geometry Wars, Age of Booty, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Battlefield 1943, Braid, Carcassonne, Castle Crashers, Culture, Geometry Wars 2, Halfbrick Rocket Racing, Raskulls, Shadow Complex, Xbox 360, Zuma Deluxe)

I think they missed Secret of Monkey Island!!!

Oh, and several others. Thing is, especially of late, I don't get much chance to play any XBLA titles . . . but when I do, Snooker is one favourite, and funnily enough, Brain Train is heaps of fun as well.

Is that a take on Brain Training on DS?
XboxOZ360  +   2217d ago
I think so, but whatever it is, it's a good brain teaser

lol sorry, but imo brain training was abysmal

Braid takes the pot, awesome

I mostly just use XBLA to download extra multi levels.

Does PSN or Wii have any decent downloadable games on them? I've heard of Flower, but not much else.... besides rehashed old games.

I've heard Fat Princess is pretty good and PS3 also has Trine (coming to 360 later) which is awesome on pc.
