Gold Required to Purchase XBLA Games?

Hey everyone,
alas my Xbox Live Gold Membership has expired.

Money is tight these days, like some others I can't afford to buy Xbox Live anymore. BUT! I found a $15 XBL point card at a local shop, and was about to purchase it.

My question is:
Do I NEED Xbox Live Gold to purchase and play XBLA games? I don't want to spend $15 just to see that I need to spend another $60. :'(

No you don't need Xbox Box Live Gold to purchase and play, but if you want to play that game with a friend online you will need another $60 Dollar's, but just get the Microsoft Point's. :)

Read details of games before making the purchase. If it's a game that's only online play, it wouldn't be a good choice.

Otherwise go nuts, have fun.
