As anyone who plays XBLA games knows, Summer of Arcade is a big deal. It’s a spotlight of some of the season’s most promising games. Summer of Arcade titles have maintained high quality controls with standout titles such as: Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Galaga Legions, Castle Crashers, Braid, Splosion Man, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Reshelled, Shadow Complex, Trials HD, Castlevania Harmony of Despair, Limbo, Hydro Thunder Hurricane, Lara Croft Guardian of Light, and Monday Night Combat.
The fourth iteration of the promotion should be no different. With numerous games scrambling to be included, no one outside of Microsoft really knows what five games will make the cut this year. As such we turn to our readers to make their selections. What games would you include in this year’s Summer of Arcade promotion?
