This is the Quick 1000 (or close to) section. Please note that some may finish it quicker or slower than others. The more research done in terms of utilising the forums found here, the quicker a game can be completed.

Please do:-
• Shout if you think these guidelines aren't fair.
• Post how long it took you to attain the amount listed next to criteria 2 for any games shown below.

Please do not:-
• Post anything along the lines of "I agree with <something already on the main list>".
• Get into petty arguments over how fast a game should or should not take. The criteria is here for a reason.

Criteria:-
To clarify exactly what qualifies as a "Quick 1000 (or close to)":-
(1) The game must take no more than 25 hours to attain the GS amount listed under (2)
(2) It is possible to attain at least 900 points.
(3) The word easy or not easy will not put a game on or off this list. If it exceeds the number of hours in (1) then it is automatically disqualified.

(B) Denotes games that may require boosting for them to be termed as a quick 1000.

If you've completed any of the games listed within the "Under Discussion" section post your thoughts on whether or not they're a quick 1000, or feel free to suggest anything not listed.

Games are not listed in order of difficulty within the subcategories.

I'm revisiting this thread after a long absence and I must really thank Highpass and any other individuals doing regular updates and maintenance. This list is definitive, streamlined, and well thought-out. Thank you. Delete this post now, as it is probably deemed inappropriate, just wanted to extend a thank you.

Please do not:-
• Suggest Oblivion, as it is one game we decided you should not rush for achievements.


There is nothing more true here than this above statement. Oblivion MUST be played and enjoyed, not whored off like some 2K6 game...

I put around 15 hours in to Call Of Juarez and only got 720 points, with boosting. I don't think it should be on the list. It's a very fun game with cool single player achievements though. But there's a bunch of glitched achievements which prevents you from getting the full 1000.

07-28-2007, 09:17 AM
I just want to agree with the Harry Potter. The 1000/1000 is easily obtainable even without the guide. Only took me roughly 10 hours tops without the guide (I wanted to stay away from the guide to try and draw it out, but it didn't work :p)

Only a few small sections are even hard, and the forum that Perpetual has set up makes the only hard parts extremely easy for those who need it.

should take under 15 hours for full 100% since almost all but 1 are off line achievements and they are very simple to obtain..

I just completed blazing angels .. it took less than 15 hours and wasn't that hard. If you use the weapons cheat to get the ace and survivor achievements then you can have it done in no time. I used it for only half of each.

I got 1000 in Harry Potter and it was easy. I have been playing transformers and have to question it being listed an an easy 1000. Ive spent hours just trying to find energon cubes in one of the chapters and only have 210 points in it so far.

Also, Pants, Darkness online achievements aren't easy so I don't think that is an easy 1000.

Transformers takes a while to find all the cubes, and now that you mention it, DiRT is extremely easy but it takes longer than 15 hours to complete. My driving time alone was at 18 hours and that is no load/menu time. I can't imagine doing it 4 hours quicker than I did, thought it was a pretty optimized run for me.

Come on people.....READ.

Quick 1000's (or close to)

At least 900 in 15 hours.

You can get all the Darkness points...except for the 100 and 250 wins WELL within 15 hours.

So don't you think that DiRT should say (975) next to it like Armored Core says (900) That was my point.

EDIT: Oh I saw a vote for NCAA 07 to be added. I second that under Rule #2

NCAA 07 (900)

Double EDIT: You know I beat Samurai Warriors 2 Empires with a full 1K in only 3 days. I don't honestly remember how long I played on each of those days though. I remember there were only two tough acheivements, the Osaka Campaign one and the Four Guardians. Without those the game is most definately a 900/1000 within 15 hours though if played correctly.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was extremely easy to get 900/1,000 Gamerscore on. I completed it within two days, but it wasn't even close to 48 hours. I only got the 900 Gamerscore from it instead of the full 1,000 because I didn't want to be bothered with difficult tasks on the Hard difficulty. With guides, the 900 gamerscore can easily be achieved well before the 15 hours are up.

The Gun trick worked as of a month ago cause I used it. And I think Bionicle Heroes is already on this list, yes?? Oh and NCAA 08 is an easy 900+ within 15 hours if you have some luck with the BCS Invite and the 1 to 6 Stars achievements. I haven't done the Campus Legend achievements yet though.

08-15-2007, 09:34 PM
Just a quick note since Harry Potter is under consideration; I question whether it should be on the list or not. Granted it is not hard at all and doesn't take all that much time to complete the main story; its all the mini-game activities that kill this game for me. Couple that with the fact that you have to sit through the computer to make moves in competitive games it really drags the game out. Personally I couldn't complete this game in 15 hours even if I knew how to do every single thing correctly and on the first try (and I was using a guide). Thats just my opinion though.

08-18-2007, 02:27 PM
Amped 3 - not sure if the 'all events" achievement can be completed under 15 hrs... It's over 220 events if I remember correctly. The 'All Gold' events achievement is 140GS and it would take forever. Maybe move to 'under discussion', but whatever, not a bad game.

Everyone seems to be ignoring the people who say to put phantasy star on the quick 1000's .... but why? honestly the game is a easy 1000 in 15 hrs ... hell i did it in about 12 and thats watching ALL the cutscenes and the little music video before every chapter... i know its not the funnest game ever but not alot of the 1000's are but the game is a very easy 1000 points

You said: " I got quick 1,000's in Fight Night Round 3, Madden 06, NBA 2K6, NBA 2K7, NBA Live 06 (960/1,000 still need online achievements), NBA Street Homecourt, and NCAA® March Madness. Yes I believe all these games are quick 1,000's."

Harry potter should probely be in the list. took me around 10 hours (and on 10 hours i played it twice, one time 100% and the next time on hard) Fastest way to get 1000g is to play on hard the first time

I don't believe Madden 07 should be up there mainly because of the achievement that you need NCAA 07 for.

Nick G 42390
08-23-2007, 06:09 AM
I don't believe Madden 07 should be up there mainly because of the achievement that you need NCAA 07 for.I agree with him because of that fact and to 1000 it you have to either endure hous of simulating or hours of playing game after game after game.

Also, I don't think dirt should be on there. I've put hours into it and never even got my 250 miles in career achievment much less the 1000 mile one. And you can't sim in that gameso you have to drive for all the 1000 miles and that could take a long timeeeee. But that's just my personal opinion.

o0EVIL0o x360a
08-23-2007, 03:28 PM
I didn't time it, but it seemed to take forever to finish Madden 07. SS mode is hell. Yes I also mentioned that DiRT should be on there but with (975) next to it because of the 1000 miles achievement. You really should be able to unlock 975 within 15 hours though... The thread needs to be cleaned up. Too many people suggesting games that are already on the list and such.

08-23-2007, 07:27 PM
Bioshock could probably be on here. Play it on easy and you can finish the game with practically every achievement. It doesn't take long either. I got 800 in two days.

Then again, it might be like Oblivion in the sense that you shouldn't rush through it.

chunkypony
08-25-2007, 06:19 AM
I have to agree that Bioshock is an easy 1000. I got 960 on my first playthrough (not rushing, really taking my time, looking through every room for the radio tapes and plasmid tonics). The only one I have left to do now is hard mode.

Hypothetically, one could get all 1000 in one playthrough, if they started on hard.

I also agree that it should not be rushed, and it is better to take it in small, very extended doses, exploring everywhere.

I don't know why some peopel think Lego is a quick game. Even with the ghost, you can't use it during the flying missions which are dang hard.

yep, the last two achievements I'm having hard time are the flying missions.

Graham31004
08-27-2007, 10:15 AM
Bioshock. With a guide and on hard you could easily get a full 1000 in 14-15 hours. I played on easy and searched almost everywhere and took my time and beat the game in 12 hours probably. Ended up with 810 without trying. Also if someone wants to rush a game, that should be their choice.

o0EVIL0o x360a
08-27-2007, 02:52 PM
I agree, I don't see any problem if someone wants to rush a game. Especially because I had beaten Oblivion on PC once already doing almost every single mission (minus the deadra shrines) But regardless that game takes longer than 20 hours with load times and such, even if you turn the difficulty all the way down and cruise to each spot on your compass.

If Bioshock could be beaten in less than 15 hours for at least 900 points I think it should be on here. I personally am going to play it twice, once on easy and once on hard. I want to get the whole experience as well as the 1000 points. If it wasn't a good game I would just play it on hard and suffer through doing everything like that. But I am going to have loads of fun with this game on easy and I'll pick whatever points come to me on my first run. My second run will be cleanup and beating it on hard. An achievement run if you will to finish off the game at 1000/1000

The Bigs is under discussion i noticed. If you are good at pinball, you can get 850 in under 5 hours. The other 150 is broken into 2 75GS achievements which will each take you roughly 8-10 hours. And if you can't get the million pinball it sucks. I spent well over 5 hours just playing pinball before i got it. I would vote for the bigs being an easy 800 in under 5 hours. The 1000 is time-consuming...trust me

GRAW 2 should not be on this list. I've been playing the only the campaign now for 2 days and I'm almost done. Theres no way this game can be 100% in less than 15 hours. Even with boosting on the multiplayer achievements, it still takes time to do that.

I feel like this list has gotten way out of hand. It seems like there are too many games on here that aren't exactly "quick" 100% games. If games are going to be on here, I think they should literally be "quick", like NBA 2K6 quick or TMNT quick.

And by the way, I also don't think we should exclude games that "shouldn't be rushed". This is an achievement site like everyone claims, and this thread is for QUICK 1000's. So why should it matter if shouldn't be rushed or not, let people play games they want to play them.

I agree with others, it doesnt matter if you think Bioshock should be rushed or not. This is an achievement website, so it should be added to the list.

Also, can we get links of guides to games that currently don't have em on page 1?

I'm not sure if GRAW2 fits under the 15 hours rule either. It took me a while to do it. The Co-op missions are kinda tough unless you have a lot of people also. Lots of people have problems with the Ultimate Defender, but I got that on my first shot. When you consider boosting, you have to double the time it takes to factor in the other player. And with GRAW you can need up to 6 other players depending on how many tags each guy has. I don't think it fits under this rule so it might need to be moved to "Under discussion" or removed completely. Of course this is just my opinion.

Here's a few games that give most of their achievements quickly that haven't been discussed:

* Viva Pinata (sure the 50 hours achievement doesn't come in a while, but most the other ones come quick and fast)

* Dead Rising (got most my achievements in one walkthru; except the 7-day survivor, which takes time)

* DDR:Universe -- you get the achievements and you get the exercise

* Bullet Witch -- if you play it right (start from easy) the most the achievements come in 15 hours (I know it's on your "don't recommend" list, but I disagree as only two achievements (Hell mode, for 1 GS and the played 15 hours achievement) take any length of time).

* Star Trek: Legacy (working on this game still) -- the excellent guide on gamefaqs shows how to get most the offline achievements in one go-through; and the on-line achievements just require you have 1 friend who has the game, too.

Not only do these games give you the achievements, but each can arguably be labeled as the best game in their genre AND you won't be embarrassed having these achievements on your gamertag.

(... also you get 1000 GS for just playing Enchanted Arms, but it does take forever to get some of them (OTOH, until Blue Dragon, it was the only turn-based strategy game available, so ...))

Bioshock can be achieved in one playthrough, in around 15 hours if not less, took me two days for 1000.

Yes it's a game not to be rushed through but it is an easy 1000 at the end of the day.

I've read a few posts saying Bioshock shouldn't be put on the list because it's not a game to be rushed but I question why not? I know most people agree that RPGs shouldn't be rushed as they are normally in a vast world that needs exploring but we're talking about an action/shooter game. If it can be done then it can be done and therefore put on the list.

Or maybe tack on an amended section listing the games that shouldn't be rushed yet can still be finished quickly. This is the "Quick 1000's" list not the "Quick 1000's except those we find 'pretty' and 'amazing' list".

Bioshock is an easy 1000 but i wouldnt rush it because of the amazing gameplay and storyline
Really the rushing thing is an opinion thing which can and will differ from person to person.

Lets say I thought The Darkness shouldn't be on the list because it shouldn't be rushed; its my opinion and has nothing to do with it being an easy 1000 points. The same can be said for any other game on the list.

Well to put arguments to rest, I think Bioshock will take about 16-18 hours on Hard. (Being this is your first time playing you will have no idea what's going on) Finding all the diaries, maxing all tracks, rescuing all the little sisters, hacking 50 things, inventing 100 things (will require considerable searching for components) This does not fit into the rules of under 15 hours. I have beaten the game through twice because I didn't want to rush my first playthough and that one took over 20 hours. Second one was 12 or 13, but all I had to do was find the diaries and beat the final bosses. (And defeat enough Big Daddies so I'd have some plasmids/tonics and health upgrades and such for Hard mode)

Ummm, bro the last 3 achievements unlock during the ending would be worth 240 points leaving you at 760 TOPS at the 15 hour mark. This listing says 900+ in 15 hours.

Little Sister Savior (100)
Defeated End Boss (100)
Seriously Good at this (40)

EDIT: Come to think of it, you probably wouldn't have Historian or Avid Inventor by the 15 hour mark either. If anyone has done a single speed run through the game on Hard and accomplishing everything, they could probably give a better timeframe.

Hey Highpass. Make sure when you are figuring out if Bioshock can be done in under 15 hours at 900+, you have to factor in that the person CAN'T have played the game once already. It goes much faster for someone who has already played the game through and knows exactly what to do. This listing (in my opinion) is geared for people who haven't played these games yet. There's still a couple games I have to give a go on the list. I would personally like the list to reflect that someone with a little research could get the indicated points in under 15 hours.

Dead Rising takes too much time and patience to be considered "quick" The Genocide achievement alone took me several hours. Even with a guide the PP sticker achievement took me probably more than 2 hours. And like you said 7-day survivor ain't easy either.

People love to suggest them still though. lol (Keep in mind that you have to meet these requirements on your first time playing the game.

I've thought about buying Oblivion but a friend of mine did all 1000 points in about 130 hours! I spent 95 hours beating Final Fantasy 12 spread over about three months and would rather not devot that much time to a game again. So how long did any of you really take to get the 1000 or 1250 for Oblivion? I'm guessing it'd take more than 15 hours, but how much longer?

If you want to ruin the entire fun of the game, you could probably finish Oblivion's original 50 achievements in 24 or 25 hours. I have no idea about the Shivering Isles achievements, as I haven't done them yet.

I feel that Armored Core 4 should be put onto the Hard 1000's. It is in no way an easy game to get 900 or more points in 15 hours without a guide. Just ask anyone whom has 900 or more points in it, and they'll agree.

Bullet witch defiantly. I was in chat with a friend for a few hours and he beat the game twice in that time. He got 999 in 2 days I think.

GRAW2 the campaign is really easy but some people do have problems with it. The Co-Op is very nasty for most people, I am a master at it so have helped/dragged quite a few people through it. Ultimate defender is nasty as well but if you get an organized team its not too bad.
For the VS achievements just play at head quarters and all the achievements can be taken without boosting in a day or two.

Another easy one that takes time is Forza 2, aside from the ones where you have to do something on a certain difficulty, they are pretty easy. Once you've gotten the ones for a certain difficulty, put it on medium or easy and club the AI to death. I got to level 40 playing it on hard, thought this was to annoying and I just wanted the achievements, so I dropped it to easy but left it on manual, no suggested line, realistic damage/fuel/tire ware. Just took some time, but I managed to get 930 points out of it, the only two I am missing are all time trials and 1 million online credits. I probably won't go back for them either since it did take about 60 hours to do the others, I'm tired of that game. Easy achievements but time consuming.

There's something wrong with this list. The Bigs isn't on it but OBLIVION? Oblivion takes at least 30-40 hours to get all 1000. You can rush through as fast as you want. I ran through the entire thing it took me around that long. I even avoided side missions and went through the guilds. I would even have to say that maybe 30-35 hours but that's not quick and easy. PSU, Enchanted Arms, and Lego Star Wars 2 are all FASTER then Oblivion. Much faster. I finished PSU in 20ish hours, Enchanted in probably about the same time, and same with lego star wars 2.

Agreed I'm at 34 hours (according to the stats) and Level 44. I've only got 300 odd GS so far. That's without venturing online yet and without getting to the endurance races.

I also don't think Oblivion should be on the list. It probably can be done in 15 hours but for a first time player that's just not possible. It probably took me around 5 hours just to stop drooling at it :p

Well I think I'll bring it on, or someone alrdy did, but Bioshock should be on that list, I've got 1000/1000 and I would say it's maximum 20 hours, and probable less if you just rush through it.

I would say to add a (R) though cause it's not a game you should rush.

Sorry to state the obvious but 20 hours is over 15 hours. So it doesn't qualify.

The thing with Bioshock is that it doesn't seem that long as its such a joy to play. It would definitely qualify as an easy 1000 but not necessarily a quick 1000.

You'll have to forgive me for calling Forza 2 an easy 1000 then since I spent years playing Gran Turismo games and the first Forza. I've gotten used to playing the realistic racing games so it wasn't to difficult for me to pick up, other than the times when the AI drove very agressive.

Come on guys, Bioshock and The Bigs have been discussed already. Bioshock's big achievements come at the end of the game and those are after the 15 hour mark. I seriously doubt you could get more than 900 points on your FIRST playthough of Bioshock within the allotted time. The BiGS has those time consuming rookie challenges and Home Run Pinball. You can't get 900+ points on either game within 15 hours.

On the other hand, I mentioned earlier that I got 901 points on Bulletwitch within 15 hours, so it should be added either 900/1000 or 901/1000. In fact if I hadn't died at all, it would be 1000/1000 but the game doesn't count the time you die in between checkpoints for the 15 hour achievement.

Oh, one more thing. College Hoops 2K6 needs a (P) next to it, those take about 1 hour or an 1 1/2 if you mess one of the achieves up.

I think you can get over 900 in Bioshock in less than 15...but I don't think you should. Kind of like Oblivion.

I seriously doubt it man. Find someone who hasn't played Bioshock yet (good luck with that lol) and see how many hours it takes them to get 900 points in it. I bet you, it's more than 15 for the average person. Of course knowing all I know about Bioshock, I could do it now, but on my first playthough I doubt I could've done it. Of course I didn't rush it at all. So even if you play on easy and skip the audio diaries, and skip inventing 100 items that would leave you with 900. You still have to research every single enemy in the game, collect all the tonics, buy all the slots, rescue every little sister, get lucky on the jackpot machine, 50 hacks, find all the upgrade stations... There's a lot of stuff to do on top of just plaything through each area. All this stuff without knowing anything about the game.

Kind of like Oblivion? I don't think it's even possible to complete Oblivion in 15 hours. The fastest I've heard so far is 25 hours and I'm sure it will take most people around 30-35 even and that's for people who've already beat the game.

@ Code Digital: I know what you're sayin' man, but I just don't think most people could hit the marks required by this list to qualify it. It's probably possible, but you'd have to have a very good guide aimed at getting you through a speed run. (And reading the guide while playing counts for the time) And like I said, you would have to actually shoot for 900/1000 to even get there. Like I said you'd have to choose which achievements not to go for to meet the 15 hour requirement. That means playing it on easy to help deal with enemies (-40 for losing "seriously good at this"), skipping audio diaries (-50) which is pretty time consuming, and either A) skipping the time consuming inventing (-10) or B) skipping the chancy slot machine (-10) It's possible, but a lot of trouble/planning to meet these rules and get it on the list. The rest of the games on the list don't require such careful planning to meet 900 points within 15 hours. Which brings me to...

@Clipse: Go for it man, let's see how long it takes you to get 'er done. If you get 900 points within 15 hours, I guess it should be on the list then. 890 doesn't cut it though. ;) Make sure you don't harvest any little sisters cause that'll blow the whole thing. lol

@Perpetual: I recommended Bulletwitch, if you'd review that and maybe get another opinion, I think it should look like this

This is to settle it, and hopefully those who decide what games make the list acknowledge it. But honestly I'm tired of you going over and over that this game shouldn't be on the list whenever someone else thinks it should be. Thats why I'm willing to go through with this and I'll be letting everyone know the outcome of it.

I can agree to Bullet Witch. I played the game myself and to be honest, it has more to do with will power then anything. The game is so boring a second, third, etc time through. You have to play each difficult correct to unlock them? or can you play the harder? I know the game is extremely easy. Anyone else agree on the easy level of achievements?

As for Bioshock, there is that 15 hour limit but that limit is exceeded by some of the games on the list already. I have some ideas to improve the whole process. But I need time to lay it out and see how it would look like and stuff. It's not my thread anyways, but I'm working on it because I can see that it causes much debate and confusion at times.

That's assuming the person finishes it on hard first. So maybe we should make note of that? Because I beat the game around that but I didn't beat it on hard because I'm an idiot. And honestly, the chess part has an easy solution and same with gob stones. The entire game is extremely easy. So I do agree with you. So maybe put in parenthesis "must be beaten on hard first" or something like that.

I don't think we have to note that. People that are going for the easy 1000 go into a game knowing the small things they have to do to get all the points. Like a sports game. They know all the little things to do to change the settings and which teams to pick to maximize score. Along with changing period times and the like. If that makes any sense.

I was looking to beat the game on hard and hard boiled which i didnt do, but it would give u another 130 if my math is right so i suppose if u started on hard to begin with... that would be 880 with no extra time added.
Then it would just be the case of finsihing the game on hard boiled and getting the last 2 hosting achievments so ye i think it could be fully complete in well under the time limit

@Clipse: Sorry I didn't mean to get on your nerves bro, I know people who suggest games that are already on the list, or suggest games that take 25+ hours, they get on my nerves as well. I'm just trying to argue for Bioshock because it's in the under discussion section, and it's really on the borderline for an attainable 900/1000. Plus with all the people saying don't rush it and all that, it's just a pain in general. Just figured if it takes 16-18 hours to meet the requirements, then we can drop the whole rush/don't rush conversation because it's an invalid point.

EDIT: And one more thing to point out about Bioshock, if you're really just playing for the points, 99% of the time, it'll be played on Hard from the start, a run for 900 points is just not optimized. You're actually screwing yourself to go for 900 because now you have to play the entire game again and that'll tally to 25+ hours at that point.

@Perpetual: Yep, just beat Bulletwitch on Easy, Normal, Hard, Chaos and Hell and buy the upgrades along the way (no special redoing levels necessary) is all that you need to beat Bulletwitch at 901/1000 in under 15 hours. If you didn't die at all (very unlikely) you could pick up the full 1000 in 15 hours. Dieing restarts the timer to what it was when you hit the last checkpoint. Yes it is mind-numbing, and yes the game is easier on Hard than Easy because you already know what to do by your third playthrough you know where you can just jumpflip through to each checkpoint.

@Codedigital: You're 100% correct, if you're trying to do a speed run, you'll save time just beating the game on the hardest difficulty if those achievements stack. Anybody doing a speedrun will know this already so, noting it is redundant information. I would also like to know about Stranglehold because I'm looking at giving that one a go, and if it ends up on this list, I'll definately go for it.

I haven't played Bioshock or Stranglehold but will at the end of the GSL....either way if Bioshock is an easy 1000 put it in there. Personal opinions about whether the game should be rushed or not should NOT come in to play here. I could say NBA 2k6 is NOT an easy 1000 because i feel you should play the game and earn the achievements in a season. See? point proven. It's all personal opinion because if someone wants to rush through just to get it done and not really care what happens in it, that is their opinion.

As for Stranglehold, i've seen a few 1000s in it and heard that it isn't that hard to play through and should take no more than 3 days of 6ish hours of playing....so 18ish total for the 1000....or so i've been told at least

The problem with Bioshock was that it didn't meet the 15 hour requirement but since it is around 18-20 hours anyways, I think we should throw it up anyways so I moved it. No one argued that it shouldn't be rushed. That's not why we didn't move it. It was debating whether it could be done 15 hours or so.

Oblivion and DW5 are already up there. PSU didn't make it because it took a lot of people around 25-26 hours. Also Samurai Warriors is debatable.

And Oblivion does not take 20 hours. Even if you're a master at pick locking, it takes minimum 25 hours and only person claimed that and I still have a hard time believing it. Even if you've beaten the game once, I still think it takes way more.

Oh crap, I didn't see you guys added Oblivion to the list at all. Fair enough. But I got to 950 on Samurai Warriors: Empires in under 20 and I beat PSU and my playclock was 18 hours. It took my friend 19 hours, so unless you suck at the game, it's very doable.

Oh, and for Oblivion, just skip the whole end part of the thieves guild and I bet you could get to 900 in close to 20-22 hours. That's the most time consuming questline. But it's already on the list so that doesn't matter too much. ;)

EDIT: Actually here is a suggestion to remedy all these discussions. Change the title of the thread from Quick 1000 to Easy 1000. The list is out of control as it is and a lot of the games on the list do not fit the criteria originally set by Highpass.

I agree....anything under 15 hours should be left alone and anything 15-25 should have a connotation. We should base this on if you pick up the game to get 1000 pts, how quick can we get it.

I'll add a new letter like all of you suggested. This new letter is: (E)

Basically anything that's 15-25 hours will have this letter. Now everyone read through the list and tell me which games need new lettering. For example, games that may require the (B) may not have it yet. So with the new letter, just read through the list and tell me which ones need them. Also any new games needed?

edit: Also, I changed the criteria. The new maximum is 25 hours for 900 points. Nothing more. If it takes even the slightest time over 25 hours forget about it. I think Oblivion will be moved to the disqualified area because I know for a fact it will take almost any new person more then 25 hours to beat it. No discussing that. End of story. :D

DiRT can be changed to 1000/1000 (E) Might want to add the (B) for the two online achievements

Tenchu Z might be able to be fully completed in under 25 hours, someone will need to verify that though.

viva pinata- i had 980 in this game at about 20 hours.

nba 2k7- a minimum of about 10 games has to be played for offline, then the online boosting, i would say 10-15 hours.

just to reiterate because i noticed madden 07 is still under "needed to be sorted"...

1.) madden 07 is 10-15 hours because of gay franchise and level 50 simming. SS is almost in there just to make it longer. [start rant] oh and also if you like gaping 10 GS holes in your records for completion, do yourself a favor and play NCAA 07 first. i just <3 my 990 for this freaking game [/end rant].

2.) NCAA 08 i would say 10-15, due to the inability to sim (you can supersim) for in game achievements. also, there are several achievements that you must resim dynasty for.

3.) Homecourt is definitely 5 - 10 if you play right through. most likely the worst replay value ever.

4.) nhl 07, my second favorite game now that 08 is out, is once again in the 10-15 hour category becuase of EA's insistence to make us sim for every damn game. WHAT THE EFF//./././

5.)FNR3, although i have never played it, i have been told can be done in 5 -10. also seeing as every other person ive ever seen as 1000 in it makes me feel that this is true.


hope this helps, and yes they are all sports games because i make the mistake of playing the games i like and having to sim for the 1000. :AR15 EA!!

Some of them may be debatable so if I need to move them just say so. I also moved Viva Pinata to discussion. Reason being as I was reading through the game forum of it, not a single person said it was an easy 1000 really. So I'm wondering if you can get 900+ under 25 hours.

edit: Alright the ones I have left over I really don't know. Uhm reading GRAW2 forums it doesn't sound like it can be done under 25 hours. The rest of the games I need to know because reading through the forums I couldn't get a clear cut picture of the length.

You could probably move American Wasteland down to the next slot and make it 1000/1000

You could probably move NCAA 07 down a slot and change it to 1000/1000

You can take the 950 off Civil War cause in 25 hours you can get all the points on it.

You can take the 975 off DiRT cause in 25 hours you can get all the points on it.

Crackdown can go into 15-25 hours category but I don't know what the exact point value would be at. Need more info on this. I got 990 in that timeframe but there are 1250 available.

99 Nights can go into the 15-25 category.

Ratatouille can go into the 10-15 category I'm sure. I don't have much left with this one and I've got like 7 hours in so far. Need another opinion on this.

This new list is amazing, Perpetual. Way better than the original and should give everyone a very good idea about each of the games. Bravo!! Let me put up some suggestions as well.

You could probably move American Wasteland down to the next slot and make it 1000/1000

You could probably move NCAA 07 down a slot and change it to 1000/1000

You can take the 950 off Civil War cause in 25 hours you can get all the points on it.

I don't know about N3. I remember it taking me more then 25 hours and I was one of the first to finish it. Then again, I'm sure if I had a guide like the one I made, I could have finished it much quicker. I'll leave that up for discussion still. Same with crackdown.

Just added Ratatouille. Changed DiRTs and Civil War. As for NCAA 07 And Tony Hawks AW I'll just leave them as is because it may take some people forever to find the gaps because there's so many and the simming part could really depending on the persons patience also.

well the thread looks great (as expected :)) just wanted to give my input on a few other games, as told from a friends perspective. sorry for being the secondary source :p.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 07 seems to fit in the 15-25 category due to its hellacious online boosting achievements. also belonging in 15-25 is stranglehold, mainly because of the online hosting and paper crane achievements. I'm sure with a quality guide these could maybe be knocked down one group. also, on a personal note, i feel like The BIGS meets 15-25 criteria. but that is just IMO. in conclusion (yes this is an english essay), i think it'd be just super if you added a guide next to Harry Potter on the list. that is one of the most insane guides [by Rocket] Ive read and is most helpful.

**there isn't a glitch for WWE SDvR is there? i just noticed the 960 so JW :)

Hey I think Condemned should go into the 10-15 hour section. Possibly the next one up depending. You've just got to beat the game twice pretty much, once for firearm freedom and once for melee master.

Smackdown vs. Raw is 960/1000 because the last achievements are for using every single character, and then two more for beating every single character on "hard" and "legend" difficulty. The amount of time required for these and the rest almost qualifies the game as a "tough 1000" but since it's only 40 points, it's negligible.

On The BiGS, my friend is playing through it right now and he's been stuck at 895 for the longest time. Going through those rookie challenges and Home run pinball are so time consuming and boring, that they're sapping his will to live. lol He's at 30+ hours.

I think part of the reason why Civil War is set that way is because it is pretty hard on the hard difficulty.

I've heard that it's way longer/more of a pain in the ass than people think. If it's really that fast/easy I'm definately going to rent it. lol

Alright, so I'm basically awesome. Just joking. I made the "deemed unworthy section" as the neutral section also. There's no point making a new thread for neutral games. So anything that doesn't fit the "tough" or "quick" criteria then it goes under there. Hopefully that'll make things a little easier. And I was adding all the guides but unfortunately it went over the character limit and the genius I am, I clicked cancel all changes. So I'll have to go through and remove some text so I can add the word (Guide).

If anything I would move it to the 10-15 hrs minimum.

I thought in the feedback area we decided not to do neutral because it was obvious. By eliminating that area you'd have plenty of room for more games.

Why do we need neutral? I mean obviously if they're not on either list then they're neutral.

I love the changes you are making for the most part but please keep in mind two things. There has already been a TON of input on the games you see up there and some of the games you don't. It's supposed to be a quick list...so let's not convolute it too much.

PerpetualHeaven
09-25-2007, 02:56 PM
The word neutral is just added into the deemed unworthy section. Some people would just like to know where that game is. Not everyone will skim through both the tough and the quick list and then eliminate what games aren't there. But since you think that's the case then so be it. Just trying to make it "easier" for everyone else. In that case, the deemed unworthy section doesn't need to be there either since it's basically the neutral section anyways.

I moved a couple of games to the tough area (i.e. UEFA). I also added guides for all the games. I may have missed some, if so let me know. Also have a few games left under discussion but I'll try and finish those in the next 30 minutes.

As for Pimp My Ride, I moved it to the 10-15 like you suggested Pandora.

Good enough for me. For GRAW2, I was debating whether it should even be in this thread because I was reading the forum and it didn't sound too easy. For Darkness, that 15-25 seems to be confirmed now that I used the lovely search button.

I personally think 10-15 is a better spot for Gun. The level jump cheat code does make the game immensely easier, but there is still quite a bit of stuff to do. Like Code Digital said, the card games can take a long time. I got a little jammed up on the Hunting missions as well, kept scaring the buggers. It' s definately possible in under 10 hours, but I think it would take most people closer to 12 or 13 hours when all was said and done.

I'm not sure about Halo 3. You've got to be pretty damn good at Halo, and have 3 other guys who are pretty good as well. You're probably going to be doing the campaign at least twice, probably 3 times. I did once on normal, and I still need to do Legendary and Meta-game. You could technically do Meta-game and Legendary with skulls and terminals all in one shot, but that is not very realistic. Not everyone would get the Metagame achievements so, you'd have to redo it and help them out. What does everyone else think??

I think gun could go in the 5-10 hours section, but gets the R. I thought it was a magnificent story [for the most part], and without a guide I got 1000 in 14 hours. Heck, without cards and gold, it's probably much less for a 920.

With the cheat, you don't have to ride around to do things. I did a second profile and I warped to every mission, side mission, card game, and hunting mission. On easy, that could be phenomenal.

You've played the game since the 25th and only have 755. Grantilion suggested that the game be put there and he's also been playing it since the 25th and has under 900. I know both of you have at least played it minimum 25 hours.

What I would like to see is someone who's never even beat the game just starting out and do it under 25 hours. If anyone can find me multiple people who had a 1000 in under 25 hours or at least 900 and there's a whole bunch of them, then I'll put the game up there.

10-03-2007, 10:25 PM
Perpetual is very right, most people will not get 900/1000 within 25 hours. Think of this as well. Using someone else's unlocked skulls to do the Metagame stuff is not considered boosting. So at a minimum, you would have to play the campaign through twice. Once to get the skulls, once to USE them.

But to be perfectly honest. You can get exactly 900 points in the game from the campaign alone without ever entering matchmaking or custom games. You could start playing on Legendary with 3 friends and beat it, getting all the skulls and terminals, and the 3 "campaign OR ranked games" achievements. Then go back on Normal and play by yourself with a second controller plugged in and 4 skulls turned on to get the metagame achievements. That would be 900 achievements, and it could be done in under 25 hours very easily. Will most people play Halo 3 in this fashion, though?? I think not.

Well, If people follow this method who have never played this game and do get 900 under 25 hours, I would most definitely put it up there. Problem is, how many people can automatically just pick up the controller and just do all that all under 25 hours?

o0EVIL0o x360a
10-04-2007, 03:45 PM
I was just playing the devil's advocate. It can be done, but I seriously doubt anyone will plan and play Halo 3 exactly like that. Actually if you had some really really nice friends who don't mind playing for nothing, they could host a match on Legendary with skulls turned on, and you could get all 900 in one playthrough in less than 10 hours. Of course you would have to be very good as well because you lose points in the Metagame for dying. As long as the host has the skulls unlocked, you can join his game and use them to get Metagame achieves. You can also pick the skulls up again with any player and all players in the game get the achievment. Same with Terminals (Even if you pick up a skull you're already using to modify your points lol) This is just theoretical though. I didn't do it this way, but by all means someone could.

In reference to the Metagame, yes, just unlock all the skulls that you want to use. Go back to campaign (not solo) with two profiles logged in. You will see both names on the right side of the screen. Hit "X" and turn on Free for All scoring and 4 skulls that won't gimp you too badly and put it on normal difficulty. Start the first level and you will be playing split screen, but player 2 won't be controlled by anyone. Just play the first level and you will have more than enough points at the end of the level to meet the metagame requirements. If you happen to die, you will respawn back at player 2's position, so you'll have to walk a bit, but you don't even have to restart at checkpoints.

For Halo 3 keep in mind you have to rank up for one of the achievements, which requires at least 70 exp and a skill ranking of 10. Winning 70 rounds PLUS the campaign twice, takes time. More time than I think would be considered "quick". I was playing the game constantly for a week before I got the achievements, the ranking achievement being last.

70 rounds, I believe 15 minutes each. 1050 minutes = 17 and a half hours.

That is if you win every single round, which I doubt you will, especially since you have to play ranked to get up to at least 10 as well. To meet the 25 hour criteria, you'd have to win 70 rounds without a loss and then beat the game on legendary with all the skulls (which you'd have to have a friend with them, or you're playing twice) in under 7 and a half hours, maybe 8 if you win some of the multiplayer games a few minutes before the timer runs out, but in team games its usually close.

You're definately right about the ranked match achievements. But you actually only need to be able to get 900 points within 25 hours to be put on this list. There are only 100 points for online achievements in this game. I still don't think most people will do a power run through the campaign to get 900 points. It's very possible to get 900 points within 25 hours though. I'm kinda torn on this title. All you need is some skilled friends to help you out, but not everyone has that.

In reference to GRAW2, yeah you need at least 6 guys (or gamertags) to get the online achievements. My buddy signed in 4 tags and I signed in two to get them all. It was very fast. Not everyone has a friend with 4 xbox live gold memberships on the other hand.

Yes but the time for YOU to get the 1000 is what this thread is about...I would keep it where it is just because if you are to play on your own, as most people do, it will take 4-6 hours....

Update it new sports games came out...

How can I put NBA Live 08 and NBA 2K8 if:
A) I don't know long it takes
B) I don't know long it takes
C) I don't know long it takes

Basically, you have to tell me how long it takes if I haven't played it and it's not said on the forums. If it isn't on here, chances are I don't know how long it takes.

I'm trying out Pimp My Ride now, and I think 10-15 hours sounds about right so far. I did the first 3 customers in like 2 hours and now I know what the game is about. Boy is it a terrible game though.

How about Spiderman Friend or Foe?? I've read it can be done in under 10 hours, at least 925. The last 75 is for upgrading each of the characters fully, which is time consuming. I haven't done it yet, so we'll need someone else to recommend it.

@ Perpetual: Why are you sporting the new xbox tag?? Your old one has privacty settings on and a ton of gamerscore, that's a lot of work to lock up and throw away.

Are you sure my old one has privacy settings? I'm positive it doesn't but I'll go check if it does and remove it if there is one. I don't know why I'm sporting the new tag to be honest. Just to get away from gamerscore I think. It drained a lot of my finances and I just don't want to go back to that. I'm very careful with my money now. A lot of time has opened up also. Also, I'm really cheap and I don't want to get a gold card yet. In due time, I'll go back to my old account and change the account name. For the time being, I'm going to stay real cheap :D

As for Spider-Man Friend or Foe, I think I'll throw it in the 10-15 hour section. But I'll wait for some more feedback from Semp Pi.

edit: yeah I don't know what you're talking about. There is no privacy settings on.

I completed Spiderman: FOF in under 10 hours by my count. It's quite easy and even leveling up the other characters doesn't take as much time as one would think. A guide isn't really necessary for this game, and most levels are fairly short (5 stages with 4 levels per stage, each varying in length).

edit: to be fair though, it was just about 10 hours. So classifying it in either bracket would be fine.

10-15 sounds fair enough to me. It sounds like most people can get the 925 under 10 but the 1000 can still be done in 10-15 even for some others. So since the full 1000 can be obtained in 10-15... it can go under there.

Oh you're right. Well I saw one of your posts where you were talking about your old gamertag and how much score it had. I was always perplexed by that tag with 2000 points you have up right now, and you're always so knowledable about these games so I checked it out. Mygamercard.net said you had some privacy stuff turned on, but it doesn't anymore, it was probaby a system hiccup or what not. Either way, I'd wear that tag proudly even if you are not running up your score at the moment. Anything over 50K is pretty impressive if you ask me. At the very least it would be easier for me to click and see how you did on a particular game!! lol j/k

On Spiderman, thanks for the good info, I'm adding it to my rental que. It's funny how easy it is and nobody ever talks about it or anything.

Fine fine fine. I threw my other GT in my signature. It would be nice to be at 100,000 right now but that dream is long gone.

Ah well, anyways I'll be renting NBA 2K8 and Live 08 probably this week. So I'll post how long it'll take. Unless someone wants to intervene and just tell me now.

edit: Nevermind. NBA 2K8 is exactly the same achievements. So I'll put it in the same area. As for Live 08 I don't even have a clue as how long it could take. Looks like under 10 but not too sure.

Hey man, wouldn't bother with the "R" on Halo 3. Those 900 are from the campaign only which is pretty lackluster. It's not a Bioshock situation or anything. Some of my friends are rabid Halo fanboys and even they are not impressed with the campaign. lol Up to you though, just my opinion.

Yep, Creech's guide was very helpful. It just seems to me that it takes about an hour to pimp each car (cash roam plus pimping phase) and there are 15 cars you have to pimp. Plus Xibit's thing at the last portion and then going back and smashing 20 RPM vehicles which I still need to do. He made a post that it would take 5-6 hours if you follow the guide, but I have to call bullshit on that. lol (no offense to him at all) I'm guessing if you do everything perfectly on the first try, you could get it done in maybe 12 hours at the earliest. But since we're all human, I think everyone will screw up during the pimp phase and have to try all those a couple times. I don't know, it probably doesn't warrant moving the game to a different section, but just so people know... it is not an extremely quick 1000.

One last note about Pimp My Ride, I finished it last night finally. The last achievement for crushing 20 RPM vehicles takes about 2 hours by itself, not counting the rest of the stuff you have to do. It is not possible to unlock this achievement during your run through the game. There are only 15 cars for you to pimp and the achievement is for 20. I don't remember being bothered by RPM vehicles on every single car I pimped either. I probably got about 3 done during my initial run, then 17 more in about 2 hours (keeping load times in mind)

Can someone else confirm how long it took them to finish the game from scratch?? It took me probably 16-18 hours of total time. I'm very curious what other people's times were.

For Condemned I'm pretty sure you HAVE to play the game twice. I don't think you can get Fire-Arm Freedom and Gold Melee Master during the same playthrough. If someone can confirm you can get them both in the same playthough, then it would have to go in 5-10. But two playthroughs bumps it to 15-20. The problem is, I think you have to fire the weapons for Fire-Arm Freedom, and that would screw up the other achievement.

Do you have to fire the gun? Its been a while and I don't remember for sure. But even still, you can go by chapter, and one level has most of the guns in it, so you don't have to play through twice. Just once and then go back for a couple levels. Still I got all the achievements in less than 10 hours (even with not knowing what melee weapon I missed and looking for it for about an hour), not 15-20.

An opinion from the thread maker, nothing more. In my opinion, it is no harm to let him the chance to give his own opinion (or the other users) about it. Despite the fact I totally agree with it, I may be useful to other gamers.

If you don't know Bioshock at all, the fact that someone tells you that you should not rush it is a good point. If you DO know Bioshock and you disagree about this, the fact that there is a (R) next to its name is not that much of a pain to you :-P

the fact that the (R) is next to Bioshock is hardly a opinion so much as a suggestion. if you are just some guest to the site for the first time, and you dont know the hype of bioshock, you might want to rush it. this way, everybody can take it under consideration.

Yes, you are quite right. NHL 2K8 should have 960/1000 next to it with the (B) for boosting.

In reference to Bioshock, it actually wasn't the first game to start the whole (R) thing. Oblivion was. I personally rushed Oblivion as fast as possible because I'd already experienced the game on the PC twice through doing all the quests. So naturally when I got my 360 I was more interested just unlocking the achievements.

For Bioshock, people say you shouldn't rush it. If someone was about to play Bioshock and they asked me about the game and the achievements, I would tell them not to just blow through the game for the achievements. It's more worth your money to actually enjoy the game that was so finely crafted for us. I would never say the same thing for Pimp My Ride. lol I think for the purpose of this list, none of the games need the (R) though. This is a list to help people unlock achievements as fast as possible.

Oblivion was the original (R) but I removed it because I find it hard to believe that anyones first time around would beat Oblivion in under 25 hours. I personally went around to beat it again and rush through it and I caught myself in extra side missions and finished it in like 30 hoursish.
