I've been played on xbox live for a few years off and on, and it has come a long way in its time. Xbox live is a great way to access the marketplace for new demos and add-ons, meet friends from all over the world, be competitive with other people, and just learn more about the xbox community and future.
My favorite part is being able to quickly download game demos and even free indie games. Trying a game before I buy it is something I like to do to make sure I'm not wasting my money, and xbox live really makes that easy. All you have to do is search for the game you want, see if the demo is available, download it, and play! Searching for games is very easy, and you can even find some free ones. Also, being about to use points for games makes it very easy to purchase them, I don't even need to leave my house!
Playing games with other members in the community is a lot of fun too. There are some users that are out there to mess with everyone and be rude, but for the most part, a high percentage of people on their are polite and play the games properly.
Xbox live isn't free, but it is reasonably priced. You can usually find the yearly subscription online on sale for a decent price. To me it's worth it, and I will continue to use xbox live.
Summary: great to have
