(I know this sort of question has been asked before, but not, as far as I can tell, in the last year, and things can change rapidly in that time span.)
I've just bought an Xbox 360. I'd like to play some online multiplayer games. The problem: I'm not generally very good at arcade games, and I don't have the time or inclination to get good at them. I want something I can just drop into, have a happy hour or two mashing some buttons, and then log off again.
I like FPS, racing games and sports games in solo mode, but I find them totally miserable experiences in online multiplayer. (For example, my experience of playing Unreal Tournament was spawn; run around a bit; run into someone else; get shot; die.) Fifa 12 looks great but it's far too complicated to play online. I'm not particularly interested in puzzle or strategy games. There must be something else out there? What are the currently most played multiplayers games on Live Arcade (which I haven't really explored yet)?
BTW - I haven't added any Xbox friends yet. I'm "salmacis2" if anyone wants to friend me for this sort of online experience..
