I booted up my Xbox 360 again recently, because there was a game I felt like playing on it, and it got me thinking. The Xbox 360 was a system that really did bring the idea of downloadable games on my mind, and I liked the idea of these $10 retro, or lower budget games.

I typically downloaded trials for a lot of games with the intention of buying them someday, but either forgot, or just ended up buying something else instead. Even worse, some of them might have ended up getting delisted which is something I didn't even consider at the time. Are there any games like that for anyone here that they'd like to share?

Just browsing at all the trials I had, I mostly was interested in re-releases of older games. I wish I had gotten these looking back (and I still may sometime if I want):

Guardian Heroes
Neo Geo Battle Colosseum
E4 Every Extend Extra Extreme
The Simpsons Arcade Game
Radiant Silvergun
Monster World Collection
Half Minute Hero
Scott Pilgrim

Soul Calibur has been one of those "I'll pick it up when it's on sale" games for me, but it's literally never been on sale. I'm sure I'll get it eventually.

Bummer, Scott Pilgrim and Simpsons are delisted now, aren't they?

I think I got both, fortunately, but for some reason never got TMNT Arcade. :( I think it was delisted before I knew they actually bothered delisting things ever.

Marble Blast Ultra was delisted before I had disposable income.

I missed out on some of the Midway games (mostly upset about Smash TV) and X-Men arcade (at least I still have the demo). I've been pretty lucky otherwise.

Here's an oddball though. Wik. I really enjoyed the concept of that game, yet never purchased it. It definitely feels like an early XBLA game, and I'd get it if it were on sale. It's so obscure, though that I doubt I'll ever see it discounted.

I'm actually picking up the Space Invaders games since they're on sale right now. They've been on my list.

Wik is actually older than the 360, so that would explain it.

They must have lowered the price on Guardian Heroes, because I don't remember it being $5 at release. Picked up a $15 gift card today for xbox, and finally bought that one at least. One down, lol. Debating what to do with the remaining $10 still.

Another game I remember really being bummed that it was delisted is After Burner Climax. It looked awesome from video I saw at release, and just seemed like before I knew it, it was delisted pretty fast.
