I wouldn't reccomend anyone buy anything as they will not carryover...however if I must: Dust, Monaco, Gunslinger, and Blood Dragon are all amazing and fairly "new". if xbla is your only option get them. if you have a PC....

I plan on keeping my 360 for many years. Own well over 60 games, probably close to 150 with Xbla and Xbox downloads

As a pc gamer , im going to name the ones i bought , im sure a few of these are on PC.

Guardian Heroes - at 400 points , if you dont buy this game i will cut you.
Spelunky (On pc?)
Trials Evoloution - on pc i beleive but so fun.
Platformance 1+2 (Temple of something and the other...lol), these are great INdie games for 80 points each , make sure you have a non shitty d-pad controller or something else to play with.Unforgiving. (These ARE on pc)

Shmups :
Ikaruga
Radiant Silvergun
Strania
Trouble Witches Neo

Doom and Ikaruga are my favorite games on XBLA. Ports sure, but there you go.

edit: BTW I'm an idiot and can't read... those obviously came out more than two years ago.

Hmm, Bastion of course. Absolutely LOOOOVED Spelunky, though that game is a bastard.

And you guys saying Dust are rad :)

Iron Brigade


One of my favourite 360 games of all time is Iron Brigade (formerly know as Trenched). It's like a tower defence/3rd person shooter with heaps of loot and awesome graphics, bosses, online co-op and good humour. Easily the best game on XBLA imo, cannot recommend this enough and i'm dying for a sequel.

Other recommendations:

Gatling Gears


Isometric shmup like assault heroes - Good diffculty, awesome graphics, explosions, co-op and quite a lengthy campaign.

Renegade Ops


- Same perks as Gatling Gears except co-op mode does a weird 1 screen to split screen type thing that works but can be a bit disorienting.


Others:
Scott Pilgrim Vs the World
Shadow Complex

I know the last two are a little over 2 years old but just thought i'd throw them out here.
