The title says it all.  Well, I'll add that I already own Catan and Geometry Wars, and love both.  (BTW, if anyone wants some multiplayer Catan, just let me know.)   I suppose I could just download and play a bunch of demos, but thats to much effort.  Easier to ask for opinions first and narrow my list that way.

Well, I've probably played worms more than any other game on my xbox sadly enough.  So I'll go with multiplayer worms. And FYI, I could do multiplayer Catan sometime (gamertag Azhag2). Most of my other XBLA games have been so-so.  I need to stop buying the really old retro games though...

I think I've played more UNO than just about anything else.  Though I do like Catan a lot.

Catan hands down- though I've not purchased that many.  It's a perfect low tension game that's just strategic enough to be interesting but not difficult.  I could go for some Catan playing almost any time!

Depending on reviews, I'm gonna get POP classic.  So we'll see if Catan can hang onto the top spot.

I've tried demos of nearly every XBLA game, and Catan is the only one that interested me enough to buy.  I suppose I like it well enough, but always had trouble getting connected for multiplayer games.  Single player is far less interesting.

Uno and Catan are my two favorites.  It is amazing how a couple of games of Uno will help you unwind after a long day of work.

Catan is the only one I plan on buying eventually, and maybe PoP Classic too.

I like Catan quite a bit, but I would be more willing to play it if the text wasn't so small.  On the monitor I play my 360 on I have to move my chair a few feet forward just so I can read the text. 

Geometry Wars is cool, but I'm just not very good at it. 

I also like Mad Tracks, but I'm miffed at the limited number of tracks they included.  I know some people like the minigames, but I would rather have more races.

Catan, Worms, Uno, and the bad poker game that was free are my favorites.

Uno absolutely got the most play from me.  I'm really enjoying Pac-man CE as well.  Others, in no particular order: Cloning Clyde, Assault Heroes, and Eets:Chowdown.

Though it's not out, I'm calling this arcade title the best one when it does - Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD

I LOVE THAT GAME
