The Ultimate List: Best (And Worst) Retail & XBLA Games to Boost Your Gamerscore

xblive

In the early years of gaming, playing was all about getting that high score on the arcade machine that everyone else would see and revere. Making it through 574 identical levels of Pac Man meant that your score would hang out in infamy for quite some time, giving you bragging rights and a sense of superiority over other gamers.

These days, games rarely keep score. The content and format of most games are not conducive to such a tally, and as such, they have been replaced by other rewards. On Xbox360, the Gamerscore is the amalgam of all individual reward points earned in all games attached to a single Gamertag. This score carries with your avatar anywhere you go – online play, websites, or other friends’ consoles. It is the ultimate “nerd cred.”

 

 

achieve

The problem with the Gamerscore is that not every game developer designs their achievements the same way. Some games make it terribly difficult to gain achievements, while others throw them at you for doing nearly nothing. For that reason, Gamerscores are not always reflective of a player’s true ability.

Regardless, people are always searching for ways to boost their score. They are always seeking what games will give achievements points for less work, letting them pump up that score quickly. Essentially, people like to exploit those games teetering towards the easier side of the achievement earning spectrum.

In this article, you will find a list of games that are great for your Gamerscore, both from the retail and XBLA realms. Keep in mind, however, that there are certain games that are looked down on by the gaming community as “Gamerscore boosters,” or titles that people only ever really played as a way to boost their score. Some fellow gamers will sneer if your score is compiled entirely of these games, calling you an “achievement whore.” But, if you are a hardcore gamer and also have a milieu of difficult titles peppered throughout your list, you won’t come across as a total sissy.

There are also a number of well-respected, fantastic games that the gaming world has adored that make it fairly easy to gain achievements. These are the best kind of games to have in your list. Additionally, you’ll see some of the games that make it extremely difficult to obtain achievements, or require deep time investments in order to access meager point values. That way, you’ll either know what to avoid, or what to play if you want a real challenge.

As a quick note, games from 2006 & 2007 generally have easier achievements than more recent games. The achievement system wasn’t as well developed at the console’s launch, and developers didn’t understand the impact they would have. Thus, they didn’t make them a real element in the game, and they are often easier to get.

Also, be aware that the worst possible way to boost your Gamerscore is to cheat. Microsoft watches for that stuff, and if you exploit a game via unethical methods, you may very well end up with a Gamerscore of 0 or find yourself booted from LIVE.

Keep in mind that the standard retail game has 1000 possible achievement points. If one on the list has more, or can potentially have more via DLC, they will be noted as such. The average XBLA game has 200 possible achievement points, which also varies on occasion.

 

Xbox360 Retail Games:

bioshock

Bioshock

Starting off with a brilliant game that most gamers adore, Bioshock is not only a fantastic title, but fairly easy when it comes to gaining achievements. On your first play-through, you’ll likely be 700 points richer. The game has a total of 1100, so there are slightly more available than the average game. Around 900 of the 1100 can be obtained with little sweat, but the last bit can be a challenge.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Fun for Harry Potter fans, this game will net you a solid 800 points if you just do everything available as you play. There is a lot of repetition, some boring bits, but overall not too bad.

DiRT

700 or more points are easy to grab just for getting through career mode.

Dead Rising

This is another well-respected game. While a handful of the achievements for this game are hard as sin, gamers generally consider this a fairly easy game. Expect 500-600 to come without effort as you progress through the story, then you can work on the rest.

Fight Night Round 3

Play through the solo game, you’ll have them all. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Actually, it does…

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Burning Earth

Play this game, and literally in as much time as it would take you to eat a sandwich, you’ll have every achievement. This is one of those achievement-bumping titles for which a lot of gamers will have no respect. You basically hit B a bunch of times for 1000 points.

Bionicle_Heroes_xbox360

Bionicle Heroes

Simple play-through nets you around 800. If you have a lot of patience with doing boring stuff, like blowing things up and looking for hidden junk, this game will be a great way for you to get its full offering of achievements.

Bourne Conspiracy

This game is really short, so the points come pretty quickly. It is also kind of stupid.

FIFA Street 3

You can get over 1000 points easily with this game. The DLC brings the total possible over 1000, but doesn’t make them any more difficult to obtain.

King Kong
Another no-respect game (as it is a highly-used score booster), this is one of the easiest games on the console to get every achievement. By the time you finish the story, you have them all.

Any LEGO Game

None of these are terribly difficult, whether it is Indiana Jones, The Star Wars Saga, or Batman.

Many sports games, including Madden 06, 07, 08, 09, NBA 2K6, NBA 2K9, NBA Street Homecourt, NCAA March Madness 07, NHL 2K6, any WWE Smackdown

Sim through the Madden games when you can, and you’ll get the points fast. NBA 2K6 is another ridiculous game where you can turn the difficulty down as low as possible and net 1000 points in about 10 minutes. Same goes for March Madness. However, nobody will be impressed by these achievements.

Open Season

This is a kid’s game, so the 1000 comes super quick.

prey

Prey

This game is pretty stupid, but one play through will net you 650 or so points. You can’t die, so that helps.

Scene-It: Lights, Camera, Action and Box Office Smash

Both Scene-It games are super fun, and don’t make the achievements too hard. Box Office Smash upped the difficulty a bit, but not a lot. There is also a DLC pack available for BOS that gives you over 1000 potential points. Knowing a lot about movies helps, obviously, but in time you’ll get them all anyway. Especially when you start getting nothing but repeat questions, which happens rather quickly.

Spider-Man: Friend or Foe

The first 925 are simple; the last 75 are a challenge.

 

Any Viva Pinata Game

Cars

Surf’s Up

Shrek The Third

More kids games, more simple achievements. Generally, that’s a formula on which you can rely.

 

Fracture

The Force Unleashed

Mercenaries 2

Dark Sector

All of the above get you 600 or more points in a single play-through.

 

Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland
This one will be easy if you were an avid player of earlier, better Tony Hawk games (i.e. Tony Hawk 1, 2). If so, put your skills to use for quick points, because there is a Classic Mode which is made of recreated levels from earlier games.

Gun

This game is boring and not worth playing unless you are achievement hunting, but they will come rather fast.

tmnt

TMNT

TMNT is another crap game that nobody respects, and is also a very easy 1000 points.

Oblivion

1250 possible here with Shivering Isle, and while it may require a larger time investment than some others, none of the achievements are particularly difficult.

Halo 3

Still vastly popular and one of so many gamers’ favorite games, Halo 3 has a lot of achievements that come with ease. Plenty are very, very hard to obtain, but 600 or so can be nabbed rather quickly and painlessly.

Crackdown

This game has an expansion that adds points, but even without, it is another one of the many titles that make around 600 points fairly easy to get.

The Godfather

This one will take a little time, and it’s not super easy, but once you get the hang of the game it’ll move faster. There is an expansion that ups the total to 1250, and the game is well worth playing to get them all.

LOST

If you can stand playing a really bad game based on a TV show, this one will net you 1000.

Left 4 Dead

This game is sort of addictive, which is handy for its achievements. Play it rather religiously for a few days and you should have 700.

Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway

Yet another title that, despite being somewhat boring and uneventful, will net you at least 600 on a single play through the solo story.

Monopoly

A few games of Monopoly, which don’t last as ridiculously long as they do in real life, will get you at least half the points available.

assassinscreed

Assassin’s Creed

If you go through the story and don’t skip a lot, you can get over 800 during a single game. There is a lot of repetitive annoyance here, but it can still be a lot more fun than many other games, and worth it for the points.

Condemned

One of the weird games with less than 1000 points (970 possible), it is very easy to get nearly 900 of them in a single day’s worth of playing. The game is actually pretty fun, too. Avoid the sequel.

Saints Row 1 & 2

Do all things available to you, and you’ll easily net at least half of the 1000 on both titles. The other half will be trickier.

Kameo

You don’t even have to finish this game to get 500 points. Almost all the achievements are story-based, so play through for a load.

Tomb Raider: Legend

Half are easy, half are hard. If you are a Tomb Raider fan, this game has 1250 potential points to offer.

GTA IV

Play through it twice and you can easily have 700 of the 1250 possible.

darkness

The Darkness

A rather underrated and unknown game, you should be able to pick up around 700 without much trouble. The game is fairly short.

Bully: Scholarship Edition

Formerly a PS2 and Wii title, this game came to the 360 with simple points. It’s also not that great of a game.

Tenchu Z

An absolutely terrible game – but, if you can suffer through it, the points aren’t hard to get.

 

XBLA Games:

Uno

One of the most popular XBLA games on record, Uno’s 200 points can be obtained if you just play for a while. Obviously much of any card game is based on chance, luck, and your opponents, but develop a little skill and these will come to you quickly.

Carcassonne

Same story here, as with Uno. Once you figure out the game, the 200 won’t be hard to grab.

Small Arms

This arcade game is one of the few to have more than 200 points, clocking in at 235 possible. Getting about 150 of them will be easy-peasy, while the rest aren’t as fast.

Galaga

Galaga is an old classic with fairly simple achievements, as well as a low price tag.

Golf: Tee it Up!

It is very easy to get all 200, especially if you have any aptitude for golf games – or a fundamental understanding of the game at all.

Lost Cities

A rather overlooked XBLA card game, this fun and creative arcade release gives you 150 points rather soon after you get a hang of the game.

Duke Nukem 3D

DOOM

Everyone loves an old shooter, and both of these classics make the first 150 easy to obtain, with the 50 remaining being quite challenging. These are especially super as they sell for 400 MS Points.

braid

Braid

Play through once and you may very well have all 200. It is possible, at least.

Elements of Destruction

Another overlooked game where your sole purpose is to destroy things.

Dash of Destruction

A terrible arcade game by Doritos that is given away for free, all 200 can be had within 15 minutes. This is good, because that’s all the longer you will want to play.

A Kingdom For Keflings

This is a charming little game where you play as a giant building cities for little people. 180 of the points are based on solo play, and can be gathered easily. The remaining 20 come from online gaming.

Double Dragon

Can be completed within a few hours for the whole set of points.

Aegis Wing

Widely considered to be one of the best XBLA games for boosting score.

Games With Difficult Achievements

These are some games that make it extremely challenging to pull achievement points from their cold, greedy fingers. Some of them require to you reach the top of online leaderboards (often impossible), rely too heavily on online gaming, require way too much time for very insignificant point totals, or just plain aren’t worth doing.

Often, the games that rely on online play or topping leaderboards make it literally impossible to get all the points. People eventually stop playing the game so much and leave the online areas empty, giving you no opportunity.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat

Way too many multiplayer achievements in this one.

Burnout Revenge

Very, very time consuming to get all the points.

callofduty2

Call of Duty 2

This may be easy if you are absolutely awesome at the game, but most of the points come from doing things on the highest difficulty levels.

Dead or Alive 4

F.E.A.R.

Far Cry Instincts Predator

Juiced 2

Lost Planet: Colonies

Need For Speed Carbon

Perfect Dark Zero

NHL 08

Turok

Quake 4

Lots of multiplayer achievements are required for all of the above. Enough said.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 2

Unnecessarily time consuming. Seriously.

legendsofrock

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

GHIII is by far the hardest of all music video games. You can be fantastic at the game and it will take you a long time to get over 150 points. If you suck, you have no hope.

Final Fantasy XI

Monster Madness

Ridge Racer 6

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground

Virtua Fighter 5

Very difficult in all respects.

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth

Not only is this game overly difficult to earn points, but there are only 705 possible! Total rip off.

Beijing 2008

This is an utterly atrocious video game, and the achievements are hard to boot. Not even good as a coaster for your coffee.

Facebreaker

Similar story to Beijing 2008, this game is plain awful.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

This is not like any other Quake game. It is very, very challenging, not particularly fun, and the achievements are a beast. You can play for hours and only get 15 points.

Devil May Cry 4

Not good for anyone looking to boost their score. Hours of play nets you only a handful of points. Lots of time/skill investment required for any payout.

Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust

This is a hideously bad platform game with very difficult achievements. You likely won’t even be able to tolerate the game long enough to earn any.

 

naruto

Naruto: Rise of a Ninja

This Naruto game is another one with really, really long time investments. I played for somewhere around six hours and had yet to earn a single achievement. Obviously, it’s not good for boosting score. It is, however, a fun game.

C&C Red Alert 3

Red Alert 3 is difficult, time consuming, and not all that great an entry in the C&C catalog of games.

Silent Hill Homecoming

Not fun, not good, and the achievements are hard.

 

armyoftwo

Army of Two

Finding someone to play with is tough, and there are a lot of multiplayer achievements to be had. Beating the game solo will net you less than 100, and there are 1250 total.

Eternal Sonata

Conan

Too much time, too little payout. Hours of play gets you only a few dozen points.

Soldier of Fortune: Payback

Horrible game – that’s all you need to know.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09

Unless you are really into Tiger Woods and plan to invest a lot of time and energy, this definitely will not pay off quickly.

GearsOfWar_logo

Gears of War

Despite being an awesome game, you’ll have to play through many times and spend an awful lot of time doing online play to get many points. Finishing the game solo on a regular difficulty setting only nets you just upwards of 100 points, and 1250 are possible. However, the achievements in the sequel are not as difficult.

Splinter Cell D.A.

Not a great Tom Clancy game, and the achievements suck to get.

 

Now, here is a short list of XBLA games that won’t make it easy for you to boost your gamerscore. While several of these are fantastic games, they won’t serve the purpose of giving you swift and simple points. Many are, however, worth checking out – with the exceptions of Yaris and Big Bumpin, which are utterly garbage.

Heavy Weapon

Word Puzzle

Astropop

Battlestar Galactica

Sonic the Hedgehog

Big Bumpin

Yaris

Coffeetime Crosswords

Zuma

Paperboy

TMNT 1989 Arcade

Vigilante 8 Arcade

Bionic Commando: Rearmed

 

 

The best way to up your score is to just play games, and play them well. The points will come along with dedicated play. However, this list should be a resource for those times when you just want to tack on some points.

And remember – renting games is the easiest way to get your hands on as many titles as possible without shelling out serious cash to buy them all. Let the local video store or Gamefly be your friend.

If you ever have trouble with particular achievements, there are handy sites like Xbox360achievements.org that have walkthroughs of every achievement for every game, both retail and Arcade. This can be a great tool for figuring out what to do on ambiguous achievements, or seeing what those pesky Secret achievements are for the game you are playing.

 

 

Editor’s Notes:

Xbox360Achievements is a great one to find many lists, but there are others out there as well of course.  Here’s a few more useful sites for information about games and achievements:

PS- Happy Father’s Day!

  • Pkort

    Terminator Salvation and Fuzion Frenzy 2. Definitely the 2 easiest games I’ve ever played/gotten 1000G in.
    I also recommend TrueAchievements.com heavily, they have a strong user base dedicated to that.

  • Refractor

    The achievements in FEAR 2 are insanely difficult to get. At least half of them come from multiplayer and are completely arbitrary and up to luck. For instance, “kill 3 players while blinded by a flashbang” or “be the only one on your team to get a flag capture” so in essence, the better your teammates, the harder it is to get the achievements. Single player achievements are not so bad, but there’s only like 500 points worth.

  • Telekinesis

    Another XBLA game that has very hard achievements is Smash TV, that game is awesome but brutal and you really have no hope unless you play with someone else who is very skilled.

  • Rage

    Altered Beast is another easy one. Complete it co-op and you could get all 200 in one run if you try

  • Trevor

    I’m pretty sad you said Bully wasn’t a good game. That is one of Rockstar’s best games, and definitely the most deserving of a sequel. I bought the game on both the PS2 and 360, love, love, loved it both times. I almost rebought it for the Wii the other day, too.

  • Toothball

    Phantasy Star Universe is a very straightforward 1000 points. A 15 – 20 hour trip through the story mode will leave you with all 1000 points. Nothing complicate to search for at all. And then if you’re willing to go for the online expansion, there’s a few hundred more that are trivially easy to get, but that does require a subscription fee. Depends on how keen you are really.

  • jayislost

    I nominate for easy gamerscore Mirror’s Edge and Peggle. And you know what else? Screw that Sonic the Hedgehog game. I never even got one measly point from it before I decided I hated it and never wanted to play it again.

    • captainr

      Yeah right! Peggle is a fricken nightmare. I mean, some come rather easy, but others are brutally time consuming. Like you have to play through every level of quick play and clear EVERY bloody peg of each one. Yeah. Really easy.

  • Trevor

    I also just looked at the achievements for the XBLA Sonic the Hedgehog….if you can’t get the majority of those achievements…you must really suck at Sonic Games.

  • Matt

    You missed Chromehounds under the difficult achievement list. Even a year after release no one had obtained all of the online achievements, despite rampant cheating among the online community.

    A few comments:

    The Viva Pinata games are fun and well worth the time, but the achievements are not as easy as you advertise.

    The Bourne Conspiracy is a fun 1000, and is worth the $15 or so it commands these days.

    Fuzion Frenzy 2 is garbage, but an easy 800+

    Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is also garbage, but will net you 800+

    For the Lego games, I agree except for Lego Star Wars II, which requires you to finish levels without dying.

    Army of Two should be moved into the easy column, and Gun should be moved to the hard column.

  • Keith

    Earth Defense Force 2017 has only six achievements: one for completing the game on each of the five difficulties (and they don’t stack, as far as I know), and one for collecting all the game’s weapons, which you basically earn through getting the other five achievements. The game unfortunately gets terribly repetitive long before the end; I’ve yet to beat it on any difficulty. It’s easily the most miserly of any retail game, Gamerscore-wise. That said, mowing down hordes of giant ants is its own reward.

  • Qjt

    Fifa soccer 07 is the only game that i have 0/1000 points in. There is just 11 achivements and man, they ar hard.

  • Dominic

    Come on, surely I’m not the only one out there to have played Enchanted Arms? A normal playthrough nets you all 1000 points. It can’t be simpler than that. Every story boss gives you points and that’s that – there are optional bosses that can unlock ultimate weapons and all that jazz, but they don’t give you achievements. It really should belong near the top of that easy-mode list.

  • Christopher

    “Castlevania: Symphony of the Night”. About half of the achievements are incredibly easy, the other half are mind-numbingly difficult. Finishing the game with 200.6% or beating everything, including the Inverted Castle as Richter Belmont were near impossible feats when the game was new, let alone now.

  • REZ

    It’s not possible to get all 200 points in Braid on your first runthrough.
    The last 15(?) are near impossible to get, you need to play the speedrun mode (which unlocks after you beat the game), and complete it in less than 45 minutes. I’ve tried many times and it is BRUTAL.

  • Kyle Kearney

    You are an idiot.

    Bully is a fantastic game, Bourne Conspiracy and Prey are great, and you must suck at video games if you think Army of Two and Homecoming have hard achievements.

    Why are you writing a video gaming blog? You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about.

  • Pingback: Achievement Unlocked: Read About Easy Achievements | Gamingaisle()

  • Hikari

    Wartech: Senko no Ronde is… probably near-impossible to get 1000 gamerscore on, anymore. 440 points total for clearing both single-player game modes with all eight characters, 190 total on playtime-based achievements capping at 100 hours, 70 total for playing to your thousandth online match, and 300 for online game ranking-type stuff, 200 of which can be achieved just by playing lots, but the last 100 of which would require you to get to the level of some of the Japanese crazy-good players who lurk online, because past a certain point, you can’t increase your online ranking without your win rate being high.

  • Kamanashi

    I beat the Naruto game in 6 hours and ended up with 325 points. Normally I hate Naruto games, but like you said, this one is pretty fun.

  • derek

    So far all i see you are capable of is typing. There are so many easy achievement games missing and you obviously have no taste in video games. I wonder if you’ve played even 2 of the games you mentioned. It saddens me that you actually have an article on a website when deserving actual gamers who can write and know what a good game is, don’t. Perhaps you should rethink everything you’ve ever done

  • Ben

    The last 100 points of Lego Star Wars (to get 100% of everything unlocked) is not trivial. Very time-consuming and tedious repetition. Every time I restarted a level I prayed it would be the last time.

  • Pingback: So, do you want more Achievements or not? | Gamer Limit()

  • Tom

    Silent Hill Homecoming should be on the easy list! All are very easy to get, as long as you save at a certain point and don’t copy over the file. Can be done in 2 playthroughs, and it is not a long game.

  • Pingback: So, do you want more Achievements or not? | All Info Blog()

  • Katsu

    I’m not sure why you think Condemned 1 is better than Condemned 2. I enjoyed Condemned 1 quite a bit, and I found that Condemned 2 improved upon the original in just about every way. I also disagree that Silent Hill: Homecoming has hard achievements. I’ll grant you that they’re not super easy like the kiddie games mentioned, but they’re definitely not amongst the hardest ones to get. I got all 1000 SH:H achievement points fairly easily using a save file near the end to get the few achievements that relied on branching storylines. Yes, I used a guide, but ‘hard’ achievements to me are ones that are actually HARD to achieve… like beating a CoD on Veteran. Guides can’t really help you with that… you actually have to have the skill to get those achievements.

  • Sen

    The Last Remnant had some of the worst achievement setups I’ve seen in a long time. Basically, if you don’t do EVERY SINGLE SIDE-QUEST, you’ll miss out on at least 500 points, and the side quests are time-sensitive, with a few of them being frustratingly hard if you don’t know how to build your party in the best way possible.

    Don’t get me wrong, I still liked the game a great deal, but it just pissed me off how I beat the game and managed around 200+ points for it. :/

  • Pingback: Boost your Gamerscore: The List()

  • Touya

    You’re wrong on Silent Hill Homecoming. I actually managed to get all 1000 points in one weekend. Just get the Lazer Pistol on your first playthrough, then you can walk through the rest of the game unharmed. Then just acquire all the secret weapons and each of the endings and you get all the achievements.

  • Pingback: Achievement-Whoring, leicht gemacht - Nerd Supreme()

  • Jeff

    Obviously there are games missing, and it’s good that people contribute their own selections in the comments and help further the list. No list can ever cover every game ever made.

    As for people commenting on some that should be moved from the easy to hard list, or hard to easy – some games are more dependent on particular player skills. The majority of this list is a compendium of what was discovered on dozens of other Easy/Difficult achievement lists on other pages, forums, and blogs. Thus, they should generally reflect an overall assessment of which achievements are harder or easier than others. Clearly everything won’t be true for everyone, and lambasting is a waste of everyone’s time.

    And as for the comments on games that are good or bad, I’m glad people are so vocal. Being judgmental based on differing opinions is, however, quite stupid. Fact is, people have different tastes…

  • gunhero

    Good list, but it is extremly off on silent hill home coming.

    I got all the achivements on my second playthrough. Really easy.

    Bionic Commando rearmed is a easy 100 points, the other 100 are rather difficult.

    Most of the NamcoBandai XBLA games allow you to restart at any level you’ve achieved, so it’s relatively simple to get the “beat X level” when you’re starting at that same level.

  • Joe

    I’m going to assume you meant Tiger Woods 06, and not 09. 09 has an easy 700+

  • Pingback: Need more Gamerscore? | SuperHighResolution!()

  • Trevelyan

    I’m fairly certain that the hardest game of all is FF XI; I never played, but the grapevine says it takes 40+ hours just to get one achievement.

    Mass Effect is an awesome game, but litterally takes at least 4 playthroughs to get most of the achievements.

  • richtaur

    Some of these are way off. L4D has tough achievements, it’s very hard to get 700 points!

  • http://www.technogog.com/information/the-ultimate-list-best-and-worst-retail-xbla-games-to-boost-your-gamerscore/ Dave

    Guitar Hero 3 is such a bitch of a game, I played it for 8 months, finally beat it on expert and at the end of it i had 250 GS. Great game and by far the best of its genre but the achievements are sick. 1 of them is to gold star 20 songs on expert!! if you’ve ever played the game then you know its impossible. but even that is still onl worth about 25 Gs or something.

    • Bradd

      Similarly, I played this for about 9 months finaly completed all the songs on expert including ‘the inhuman acheivement’ which is regularly in the top 5 of most peoples hardest acheivements of all time, barely had any gamerscore… continued to play it for a further 3 months and managed in my veiw an incredible 525 GS. My opinion is that GH3 is the hardest game to 1000k of all time !

  • Nunta

    I bagged all 1750 for halo 3, almost took me 2 years!
    COD 4,5 and 6 are easy to get over 500, the rest are a challenge.
    SAW the videogame will give you over 900 on 1 playthrough on easy!
    Prince of persia classic is another easy xbla game where you can get 175 pretty much on 1 playthrough. Also COD classic is an easy 170.

  • Don

    Assassins Creed 2 was super easy. 13 hours max will get you a 1000
    Halo ODST: A little multiplayer will get you the 1000.

  • Kirby

    I’m surprised no one’s mentioned Jumper. A truly awful game, but there are a lot of easy achievement points that are worth 50G each. i got 400G in the first ten minutes.

    You can get all of Braid’s acheivements in one run, but don’t expect it to be your first run through the game. Some of those puzzles will blow your freakin mind. But once you’ve figured them all out, then yeah. You can rip through the game and get everything.

    All the guitar hero games are hard to get alot of GS for you have to be generally awesome at them. I have completed all of them on expert with 5 stars across each difficulty and the highest GS I have for any is for GH3 because I played the game for about a year and managed 525GS. GH4 upwards are impossible to get alot on if your alone so they handicap you too much (CO-OP and band play cover over half the GS).

    Naruto was pretty easy, in the parts where it didn’t come to fighting. Silent hill was a fucking walk in the park, after you get the UFO ending with the laser rifle. Bosses die in a matter of seconds. The slightly hardest part is were you lose all your inventory and weapons in the game.
