Good list!

Personally, I would have put Bastion on there instead of Monday Night Combat, but it's all personal taste. toast

Aye, we left you. You're fat, and slow, and we didn't want to die.

Realy loved Fez, but no way would I have been able to 100% without help from guides/videos for some of the harder puzzles. Not actually played many on this list, but kudos for putting Fez at the top :)

I found Fez to be completely over the top complicated. I can't imagine the nightmare of completing that game without any sort of guide.

I greatly enjoyed Limbo. I kind of wish the No Point In Dying achievement was for no deaths instead of less than five.

I got Castle Crashers at launch (long before I cared about achievements) and I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit how many hours I sunk into that game. I completed normal mode with every character (in order to unlock all of the unlockable characters) and took a few all the way through Insane mode, which was quite a slog. I also found a funny glitch. I definitely got my money's worth from this one.

I recently bought Shadow Complex on sale but haven't played it yet. Soon!

I'm a bit strict with my ratings, so I just looked at how I've rated my XBLA games- only one 4 star (Portal: Still Alive), several with 3.5, a bunch with 3, and some with less than that.

There's a load of games that do Castle Crashers better than Castle Crashers.

I'm also kinda offended that you've picked Fez at number 1 considering how completely broken it is on XBLA. Any game that has a 50% chance of corrupting your save when you quit shouldn't be anywhere near a list like this.

Yeah Charlie Murder should have been on this list instead of Castle Crashers.

Granted I haven't played Fez in over 2 years, but I don't remember being that high of a chance of having your save corrupted.

So many on this list that I don't agree with. I can see why the list is the way it is though.
My teeth taste funny today. They seem more jagged than normal.
