Default XBox 360 retro games heaven

I was recently amazed to find so many retro games available on the xbox 360 market place. Doom, centepede, defender, Galaga... to many to list. Most of the games have online ranking and even as in the case of doom multiplayer with co-op and vs. Split screen and online. The games all have free trials and can be opened to full version for just a few hundred live points... "under $10". Alot of the games give you the option of playing in classic graphics mode or new updated graphics including HD. These games really make the 360 a great console choice.

Same goes for PS3 and Wii tho all have live arcade style systems available.

Ya, I find I play more Arcade stuff than retail games lol. UNO is strangely addictive :P

I think someone could buy a 360 and never touch a retail game, and it would still be worth it
