X-box 360 games that were worth every penny

A Listmania! list by S. H. Wells (Tulsa, OK United States)
(VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "While I don't have the equation quite worked out, I know there are only a few games that I have bought over the years that I can say were truly worth every penny.

These games had a decent single-player campaign that I enjoyed playing through to the end.

A decent multiplayer can also be a factor.

And importantly, these are games I wont trade in because every few months, they are fun to go back to and play again.

I couldn't find these on amazon but there are also a handful of Xbox-Live games that are great too:

Snoopy Fighter Ace
1943
Deadliest Warrior
Defense Grid"
Red Dead Redemption
1.  Red Dead Redemption by Rockstar Games
The list author says:
  "The multiplayer is a little confusing at first, but the single player campaign is a blast.  And once you get a hang of the multiplayer it is just as addictive as the single player."
