Nice list of games. I suggest that you add Castle Crashers, Bastion, Puzzle Quest, Bionic Command Rearmed 1 & 2, Hard Corps: Uprising, Zeno Clash 1 & 2, I Am Alive, and Magicians & Looters (metroidvania indie game).

If you're trying to stick with just $40, then definitely go for Castle Crashers, Bastion, and Puzzle Quest first.

If you enjoyed Banjo-Tooie, check out the original Banjo-Kazooie. I personally enjoy it far more.

If you liked 'Splosion Man, check out its sequel, Ms. 'Splosion Man. I also really enjoyed Twisted Pixel's other efforts, The Maw and Comic Jumper: The Adventures Of Captain Smiley.

Another studio I really liked on the XBLA was Ninjabee. I can personally recommend Cloning Clyde, A Kingdom For Keflings, and A World Of Keflings. I've also heard Band Of Bugs, Outpost Kaloki X and Ancients Of Ooga are quite good as well and always meant to pick them up.

codman4 is spot on with recommending Castle Crashers and Bastion, both are excellent. If you really end up loving Castle Crashers and are hungry for more side scrolling beat 'em up gameplay with RPG elements, I recently played through Sacred Citadel and had a blast with it. The Streets Of Rage collection contains my favourite beat 'em up trilogy of all time, definitely pick it up if you've never played the series. SoR2 has my favourite soundtrack of any video game, it was way ahead of its time.
Listen to post-punk.
