I usually regret arcade games I purchase. They are good, but a downloadable game doesn't feel like I own it. As with the physical product.

If I had to chose:

  • Hard Corps Uprising was great at first. Then it went downhill.
  • Geometry Wars Evolved 2, if I got the name correct. Was good at first, but didn't enjoy it.

Games I enjoyed were

  • Outland
  • Hydrophobia.

Have Crimson Alliance but haven't played it as of yet. Maybe during my Christmas Break after Fall semester.

Not strictly a XBLA game but I regret buying the Indie game Avatar Onslaught. Not because it is a bad game but I bought it before I knew you could not play them offline.

castle crashers, BF1943, and from dust were great.


black light: tangodown was a pile of dog poo.

Trials HD 9Best arcade game ever)

Castlevanis: SOTN

Castle Crashers

I can agree with Limbo being a regret, everybody Ive ever heard from that bought that game all say the same, you play it once and it goes into the trash after that.

The only arcade game I've ever bought was The Dishwasher. And it just reminded me why I don't like arcade games. Haven't got one since.

Meh for a fist full of change, I really don't care too much. And I don't go around buying them without at least trying a Demo first.

I regret buying the first Wallace and Grommit game. Trials HD is my favorite and I still play it quite often.

Have not bought many.

I love Monday Night Combat & Battlefield 1943.

The only other I have bought was Blacklight: Tango Down, That game sucked.

I regret playing Pinball FX2 and buying tables for it. I'm horrible at this game.

Battlefield 1943 & Aegis Wing are my favorites.
