pretty much 90% of the games included in that "XBLA" list are also multiplateforms, what the point? why not make a "the 5 XBLA exclusives you need to own." instead?

Because who gives a fuck if its exclusive or not?

I just want the 30 Best Arcade Games. Simple.

Although, lists are always subjective anyway so its just one guys opinion.

I would have included Battle Block Theatre, Alan Wake: American Nightmare, Splosion Man, Comic Jumper, Dust An Elysian Tail, Spelunky, Mark of the Ninja and Fez for starters.

Think you can pick 5 exclusives out of those, seeing as they weren't actually picked ;)

... Where's:

- ilomilo!? One of the very best puzzlers ever. Certainly the cutest.

- Battlefield 1943!? Fantastic Battlefield game.

- Defense Grid!? The best tower-defense game.

- Mark of the Ninja!? Brilliant stealth-platformer.

- Deathspank!? Ron Gilbert game.

Horrible list by CVG.
