2. Shatter

The only reason this list is for downloadable games and not just XBLA games is because of Shatter.  During the short time that I owned a PS3 I found this absolutely marvelous game.  At its core, Shatter is your traditional brick breaking game, but when you delve deeper into it you find quite a unique experience.  By adding untraditional level design, a sucking/blowing mechanic (insert your own joke), and boss fights it takes a familiar game type, turns it on its head, and creates one of the best games I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing.  If all of that wasn’t enough, Shatter also might have the greatest soundtrack I’ve ever heard in a video game.  So seriously, go play this game if you can.
