Top 5 Xbox LIVE Arcade Games of 2010

From the PlanetXbox360.com feature article:

"We here at PlanetXbox360 are all very excited about some of the big upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive titles such as Splinter Cell: Conviction or Halo: Reach, but sometimes that hype overshadows great up and coming Xbox LIVE Arcade titles that should not be missed. This year will most likely be another stellar year for Microsoft's micro gaming arcade service, starting with the company-wide Block Party event taking place this month. Whatever taste or genre of game you might favor, there is most likely an excellent arcade game coming out this year to suit your wants. So let's take a look at some of the top Xbox LIVE Arcade titles that will keep you busy while counting down the days until your most wanted retail-releases." (Culture, PC, Perfect Dark XBLA, Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360)

Looking forward to another XBLA title like Shadow Complex, easily the best downloadable game across all systems last year!
Ninji  +   2145d ago
lol, no.
Flower was the best downloadable game across all systems last year. Sorry, but it's true.
Aloren  +   2145d ago
Flower was great...but it was not really a game... Anyway,whether you like Shadow Complex or not, it got a better metascore, so there's nothing to "lol" about.

Having only played the shadow complex demo I won't speak about it, I do KNOW it's an amazing game. But this is what I think of Flower.

It's the best purchase I've made.... in a very long time, I can suffer from lack of sleep at times taking hours to drift off so I think that'll be a problem pop in Flower and play for litrally ten minutes and it relaxes me so much, it's not dull but it's just ambient, no mental strain just that. It is a game, it's not the best game ever made but it's really good.

Shadow Complex is probably a better game in my honest opinion... just something I for some reason didn't pick up new and can't get round to picking up now. I fear the same will happen to Just cause 2. It's a problem I have and happend for tons of games like red fraction.

Splinter Cell isn't an exclusive...

Can't wait for Super Meat Boy.

@ninji
Who said anything about shadow complex being "far better"? Certainly not me... but considering its metacritic average, I see no reason why you should laugh at anyone who thinks it was the best downloadable game last year. Well, no reason besides you being a blatant fanboy, considering the content of your second reply...(shadow complex mediocre ? really ?...)

Anyway, I own both Flower and Shadow Complex (I wish all games could be that mediocre...)but Trials HD and Trine remain my personal favorites.

I hope we see as many great downloadable games this year...

When comparing Shadow complex and Flower it's like comparing Gandhi and Hitler....

Now with idiotic comparisons aside I would recommend both games to all players...

A game that I would like to suggest for Live coming this Summer is "Limbo"... http://www.limbogame.org/

I think Everyday Shooter is a far better example of a great PSN game than Flower.
Caspel  +   2145d ago
All I have to say is... The Game Room blows! Where are the classics?
tinajacobs1222  +   2145d ago
Yeah, Game Room is pretty underwhelming right now. Hopefully soon they'll get more though.
ThatArtGuy  +   2145d ago
The worst part about Game Room
is that they charge you for games that you probably have already bought on XBLA already.
feelintheflow  +   2145d ago
Maybe they should just slap Beta on it....
Then nobody is allowed to complain right? At least that is what I was told when I complained a little bit about home.
Theoneneo81  +   2145d ago
@2.3
I'm Sorry Game Room and Home cant even be put in the Same planet let alone same sentence at the moment I DL GameRoom and its pretty pathetic removed it after i got the easy 70GS points at least with home I can play some games and not have to pay for it.

Wow this article made me think Sonic 4 had been released and I missed it. Well either way can't wait!

Should buy Perfect Dark even though I still have the cartridge, only reason I'm hestitating is because silvers' can't play with others so..:/
Cajun Chicken  +   2145d ago
Uh, isn't it splitscreen? Easy way around it.
Myst  +   2145d ago
But then it's whether or not I want to buy another 360 controller ( only have one ), or buy the game and live. Or I could just stick with N64 version. Actually waiting for MH Frontier to make it's way over here so I can pay for that and get Gold as well so I could play various games.
PepperJack  +   2145d ago
perfect dark
Urmomlol  +   2145d ago
Perfect Dark is awesome
soxfan2005  +   2145d ago
Can't wait for the new Hydro Thunder game this year. The original was awesome - I still play it.
DelbertGrady  +   2145d ago
I'm looking forward to Lead & Gold, Hydro Thunder, Hydrophobia, Breach, Limbo, Zeno Clash and Game 3 from the makers of Castle Crashers.

XBLA is untouchable when it comes to games.
