My girlfriend and I are looking for an arcade-y type of game to play together. Something sociable with short, replayable levels and point-scoring/ranking so you can compete to see who's best. I am first and foremost an RPG gamer so I have no idea what to look for. The nearest thing I can think of is something like the mercenaries mini-game in Resident Evil or maybe a shmup, but I don't think she'd be into that kind of thing. It doesn't necessarily have to be a shooting game, just something skill based. I hear that Beautiful Katamari is good but I'm not sure if that's what I'm looking for. I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Oh, also I don't have access to xbl, which is unfortunate because it looks like there's a lot of good stuff on there.

Portal 2 might satisfy your needs.
Lego LoTR is also a ton of fun with the gals.
Bro, when you tack on mass, you sacrifice flexibility. That's just a straight up fact

as far as scoring goes thats really hard to say.project gotham racing 4 and geometry wars 2 are both fun and addictive scoring and time beating games i still play them and theyre both really cheap.

resident evil 5 mercenaries reunion(dlc or gold edition) is good too but it might take some getting used to if youve never played re5.

theres some fun coop/versus each other stuff like the dishwasher 2: vampire smile(xbla),blur and marvel vs capcom 3

anarchy reigns is great but youll have to pass the controller around unless you have more than one xbox because it doesnt have local mp

Renegade Ops is a good schump I think. Assault heroes is not as good but probably a lot easier. My ex gf and I beat that one.

Hmm.. women like Feeding Frenzy 2.

Peggle while it can be played against each other, it's more fun to work together to try and beat difficult stages. I used to play this with another ex, she was better at it than I was and got me past a lot of the post regular game stuff. It has a lot of replay value, I highly recommend getting this.

Arkadian Warriors. IMO it's a very sub par action RPG, but perfect for playing with a girl because of how simple it is.

Aegis Wing is free, but you better be good at it as you'll probably be doing all the work.

Those Lego games may be worth a try. I remember playing it years back with a girl, and it was easy until we got to certain levels. I think it was the first SW trilogy.

Minecraft might be a great one, I haven't tried it. I'd imagine it'd be pretty much like playing house. You can build the entire world, and she has to make sure that you do not have to worry about mundane tasks such as your food bar going down, and decorating or whatever. Although it is your duty to make sure she is not killed by zombies. It can be annoying making new maps for people.

There's that Karaoke game where you can pay for 2/6/24 hour intervals.
This feels warm. What is this feeling? Is it of warmth?
