CES 2008 Microsoft held an award ceremony at GDC 2008 to celebrate the Xbox live arcade platform and amongst the winners was the arcade-style maze-based Bomberman Live, which scooped the top award.

26,000 people voted and the finalists were chosen by a panel of select industry journalists (not us). Six categories were chosen by vote and the final four categories by sales and gameplay data.

I never did play this. I like the DS Bomberman though.
i love bomberman live also,wicked game have only bought two live games this and gauntlet both absolute classics.
Not played any of the games on that list. My fully purchased XBLA arcade games are: Alien Hominid, REZ HD, Marble Blast Ultra and Poker Smash.
i think puzzle quest is a wicked xbox live game recommended!

a cross between rpg and bejewelled shouldnt work but does suprisingly well :)
