Multiplayer? Singleplayer?

My top two XBLA for each category:

MP: Monday Night Combat (TPS / Tower Defense)

SP: Torchlight (Action RPG / Diablo loot hunt)
The bad guy. GT/PSN: Evel138

Definatly Multiplayer. My brother and I have had the 360 since Christmas, but due to lack of internet connection its been us pitifully playing the games on splitscreen or single player :(. And also, Im new to the arcade games on Live, so could you also denote whether the games are found in the Arcade or disk copy at gamestop or another game store?

XBL Games Marketplace.

Fortunately, there are demos for every game available from the service.

There are only a very few retail disc XBLA offerings afaik.......the latest one I saw has Limbo, Trials HD and Splosion man.

For split screen online: BLOPS and Halo Reach
Non-split screen: Battlefield BC2

You can get all the COD games going back to (and including) COD3 and you'll find full rooms of people at any given time. All of them have great multiplayer.
I live in a constant state of Deja Vu. Didn't I mention this once before?

Team Fortress 2 offers the best multiplayer on Live. Left 4 Dead, the best co-op. Borderlands is amazing if you got a group, there's no point in playing with random people.

The Skate games are alot of fun for just hanging out in a casual setting, and the ability to edit and share videos is alot of fun. Portal 2 also offers some amazing co-op but that's sorta a one time deal because of the nature of puzzles - they're never as good as the first time - so make you sure you play with someone worthy.

Don't bother with Monday Night Combat, it's a game that beings out the most unsportsmanlike behavior in people. Truely the bottom of the barrel of the Live community.
well I am not like your dad. I worked as a chef at TGIF-Mattson
