Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll check out some demos tonight.

Trials HD is a lot of fun :D

I have Trials 2: Second Edition on my PC via Steam. Any significant changes in the Xbox version?

My suggestions:
DOOM
Duke Nukem 3D
Ikaruga
Marvel vs Capcom 2
Trials HD
Banjo Kazooie
Castlevania: SOTN

I already have all these in some form or another. I HATE playing fps games on gamepad too so I'm not even going to bother with the demos for Doom or Duke 3d.

Several of the others look good so I'll check some out later.

I tried the demo for Splosion Man the other night and it didn't hold my interest for more than 5 minutes. Is the full game a little more interesting?

Most of the really great ones are on PC as well, I think. Shadow Complex is a good example of one that is not.

I really liked Splosion Man, even though I never finished it. It is a fast-paced puzzler, and it gets pretty crazy later on. If you didn't like the demo though there isn't much else to say.

You're missing the #1 downloaded game on XBL- UNO :)

Splosion Man is a great game, but its so much better when you have 2 players. I would also suggest this.

lay the console horizontal instead of standing vertical, less chances of scratching.

Hey guys, I'm having problems. I've been cleaning my game DVDs with concrete and steel wool, now they wont play. WTF? ****ing consoles.

Will putting the 360 horizontal fix this?

I don't see why not. I mean it should.

No no no no.. you need to take a liberal handful of vasoline and smear it on your discs to undo scratches. Don't worry about cleaning it off, it will spin off in the tray.
