I´m fairly new to "Xbox Live Arcade", but there´s a big selection of games. What do you guys recommend? I have now mainly some older classics like "Worms", "Dig Dug" and "Doom"...

E.g. "Braid" and "Castle Crashers" looks interesting.

Castle Crashers is an excellent game, and my girlfriend can't get enough of Tee It Up! golf.

Sort of depends on what you like to do. I'm quite aged and like old arcade-style stuff, so I spend a lot of time playing Geometry Wars and Pac-Man CE. Also, the Pinball game is fun. (The regular arcade emulations with the souped-up graphics, I don't like as well).

I also enjoy Catan and Carcassonne a lot.

Braid, especially, seems to have people's interest across the board, but I think the strength of XBLA right now is in having a few good games for a lot of different tastes. And of course, there's a demo of everything. My suggestion is to demo everything that looks intersting to you, and you'll find some gems.

I trying the Braid demo. First impression: very cool. Second impression: very difficult. Is this a deceptively hard game, or am I doing it wrong (or just too old for video games Posted Image)?

No one is too old for video games.Posted Image
I recommend Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Of course with myself being a huge fan of the Castlevania series ever since the NES 8-bit days, may as well.
Also have: TRON, TMNT 1989 Arcade, Aegis Wing (free) and a few others.
Of course I have alot of the demos for alot of them on my 360 HDD.
