Im gonna say Fatal Fury is very easy. You can boost for all the online ones and the you only have to fight 2 computer opponents for 2 achievements. Simple 200. P.S. carcassonne is very easy 2.

out of all these easy 200 games, whats the one that you think i should get?

MrHarribalsonya

Golden Axe - 1 hr = 200 points
Carcassonne - 2 hr = 200 points
Castlevania - takes some time and a decent map for the 200.6 percent achievement and getting through the castle with Richter quickly.

Bankshot Billiards is pretty easy, yeah.

wow you must be good, i think that game is very challenging my friend only has 5 points and i played it for 1 hour and i realized how hard the achievements were

I find geometry wars amazingly difficult, and am impressed with my 100/200 in it. A friend of mine got 200/200 in in about 3 hours after downloading it. But hes just a very skilled gamer. He did call of duty 2 and 3 on veteran in a weekend... the same weekend. But he still freaks out playing kameo. Hes one of those bizzar breeds of players who does not care about overall score, but what achievements show skill. He got a bunch of the A ranking co-op 0 point achievements but didn't even bother with the ones that offer points. Hes got around 30k atm, but he could easily have 3 times that.

Actually when you know how to get a good idea of the physics in this game and experimenting its quite easy. I wasted about a month playing it and had 5 points to show for. And in about a week or so I got the full 200. Time Trials need a bit of luck though.

Sonic (at least the first, anyway) could be added. It deons't take very long to finish, or get all the points.

Anyone else agree with these two games? As I don't own them, I can't agree or disagree that they are an easy 200 (-10).

No, because a lot of people agree that UMK3 takes a while. I mean look at games you have on there like Worms or Golden Axe. UMK3 is not even in the same league in terms of difficulty.

I guess UMK3 is a tough 200 now but back when it came out I finished it in about 3 or 4 hours. Now I can understand since the only people who play ranked now are crazy good, but back when it came out there were so many bad people it was really easy. I think I came across maybe 5 people that were actually good in my 100 ranked wins. Some might think it takes skill do get some of the achievements but either you can find a problem in the ai like tapping lp forever and noob just taking it or you can look up a simple button combo that will own everything.

Also I will give Golden Axe was super easy but I had a harder time getting all 200 in worms then all 200 in umk3. I have also play worms from the dreamcast version and was decent at it. I just picked up umk3 the middle of summer before it came out and played it for about 2 weeks and quit cuz there was no one to play. So as far as skill I would say I was decent at worms and trash in umk3.

I don't think it's a quick 200 though. Maybe that guy sat all day and played it or I don't know. Have you tried it? I've only played it for like 20 minutes. So I really can't say it's hard or easy.

edit: well I just looked into it and yeah getting a million coins takes minimum 25 hours.

You could probably get all the Aegis wing achievements in under 3 hours if you really tried. But I guess it depends on how quick of a learner you are. But anyone can get the game since it is free.

It wasn't too hard for me, but I had played a lot of U.N. Squadron back in the day.

10-24-2007, 04:04 PM
If one of the requirements for a hard 200 is at least 10 hours to completion I think that qualifies Tetris Splash simply because there's an achievement for 10 hours of online play. Also the Marathon achievements take some skill. I'm still stuck on the Marathon in 20 minutes achievement and I'm fairly decent at Tetris.

Edit: I just noticed the quick 200's require only 180 points in 3 hours. That seems like a contradiction to me, since if you're really good at Tetris you could get 180 in a couple hours, but getting the full 200 would still take over 10. For my money I'd still put it on the hard 200s since I think it takes above average skill to knock out the timed Marathon achievement.

I see sonic 1 is on the list and thought you might want to add sonic 2. I don't have the full 200 for either game, but that's because I was more worried about the leader board, than beating the game under the allotted time for an achievement.

Anyone one know if time pilot, scramble, or streets of rage are easy? If so step up! A friend of mine said they're easy, but than again he has about 20xbla games with 200/200.

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is an easy 200. As long as you play through the game and play it once online, you'll get the full 200 points. The only downside is it takes about 4-5 hours if you just rush through which can be a long time. The up side to it is that the game is a great game with a great storyline as well. About 20 hours if you actually read the storyline and the like.

This thread doesn't get as much love as the 1000's thread, sadly. Anyways, there are not really that many ultra quick arcade games. I would rather spend 20 hours getting 1000 points than 20 hours getting 600 points on arcade games, personally. Plus you can't rent the arcade ones. ;)

Agree, just add a ''B'' to it before it may require boosting since online game can be hard to find...except that except the 5000+ points (wich is just time consuming...)

i think 3 hours is pretty good, does it have to be 3 hours for the full 200? i think all my arcades are completed and those include TMNT 1989, Golden Axe, Aegis Wing, Contra, and Yaris. I also have Hexic but thats a tough one.

11-23-2007, 06:19 PM
One of Contra's achievements requires online play. And I still have yet to get that achievement of beating the game using only one credit.

And Yaris don't you have to play the first level like 500 times to get all the credits you need?

Doesn't worms take 3+ hours to get the gold damage achievement?

I have played it for about 3+ hours and don't have it and since it is worth more then 20 points it shouldn't qualify... Just saying.

o0EVIL0o x360a
11-24-2007, 06:11 PM
I think 5 hours is good to qualify it for this list. The list would be very short if it where 3 hours or less. Plus the quickest section of the 1000's thread is 5 hours so it would fit nicely.

BallaGStatus
11-24-2007, 11:43 PM
i will say Aegis Wing - just takes about an hour or 2 with boosting. Ace might take you awhile.

TMNT 1989 - takes also an hour or 2 with boosting. Just make sure you read how to do turtle soup and boost with 3 other people to make it a whole lot easier.

I completely agree - 3 hours is too short. I think a lot of the games already on the list take longer than that. It took me around 5-6 hours to unlock everything in Cloning Clyde and Worms, and they still felt really short.

If I were you I'd bump the number up to 8 hours for 180 points, that would be a better guideline.

There are plenty of arcade titles that are time consuming. Probably only 10% of them are actually quick. This thread is for people who've got M$ points kicking around and want to get some quick gamerscore without running out and getting a retail title. ;)

Buyed it not long before it came out, and well i got 5 points.... Im usually good at fighting game, done MK3 very quick and tought i haven't buy street fighter i remember i finished it on SNES back then, but for some reason Fatal Fury...can't even finish arcade. Because there is no unlimited continue. Of course i don't know any of the characters, never played it before but i think it should be on the list.

Luxor 2, as I can unfortunately state from personal playing experience, takes freaking forever. Far longer than 10 hours, that's for sure.

KingBroly
12-27-2007, 02:49 PM
TMNT 1989 Arcade is nuts because one of the achievements is glitched. You need a second controller in order to get it (A $40-$50 investment by the way)

And not to mention, you have to find the right players in order to get the beat the game online achievement. A lot of the other ones you need to use tricks and manipulate patterns in order to get them (i.e. against Krang, the Rock Soldier bosses, 250 points online).

KingBroly
12-27-2007, 02:53 PM
TMNT 1989 Arcade and Castlevania SOTN should be removed as candidates. TMNT Arcade takes a lot of manipulation in order to get past 100, let alone 180. As far as SOTN goes, getting to 200g does take a lot of effort, especially because of the completionist achievement.

fuzzy510
12-27-2007, 07:12 PM
Um, why is Luxor 2 on this list? There's no way 180 can be gotten within three hours on that one - the achievements for each difficulty aren't (so far as I can tell) stackable, and to get the Pharoah ranking requires days of solid playing.

GoPurdueBoilers
12-28-2007, 12:59 AM
I got Time Pilot 2 days ago and got 180/200 gamerscore in 2 play sessions of less than 1 hour each. I am only missing the achievement which requires you to get to the final level without losing a life. In my opinion, that is the only achievement in the game which require medium or hard skill. So, this game should fall into the "Quick 200" category.

- Every Extended Extra
- Metal Slug 3

I would argue that Alien Hominid should be on the tough list. Beating the game takes 5-6 hours, but all the extra achievements double that.

Honestly, the Head Chomper achievement should put it on the tough list all on itself. I'm still most proud of this achievement out of all the ones I've every gotten. Took me 2-3 frustrating hours to get it.

01-15-2008, 06:36 AM
Battlestar Galactica belongs on this list. Getting the 5,000 kills online will take a long time to get. Also beating Scar on medium or hard without dying is next to impossible if you ask me.

Well to get the User achievement(reach level 12 on default settings) on Tron will take alot of practice(not sure if it is 10 hours worth or not) and memorizing levels only 3 people have 200/200 according to mygamercard.net (http://www.mygamercard.net/leaderboard.php?gt=&g=410&z=&c=&x=67&y=9).

I'm gonna have to recommend Small Arms, because:

a. You need to buy extra material to get the full 235/235.
b. If you don't buy the extra material, a glitch appears forcing you to complete 500 matches rather than 100 matches if you want that achievement.
c. It may take a while to get the hang of the strategies needed to complete challenge mode.

follow the guide for both of your posts, the aegis wing ace achievement isnt that hard or time consuming, go look at the post for help in the aegis wing forum, the small arms 50 challenge mode kills; again, follow the guide, just takes some practice

also, shouldnt tetris splash be up there, considering the 'at least 10 hours' and one of the achievements being, play online for at least 10 hours

ARKADIAN WARRIORS. Couple of hours and bam 200.

DocRevolt
01-24-2008, 04:30 AM
Well, one of the main reasons I bought the expansion was because you need to get 500 kills rather than 100 if you don't buy it. You can beat that achievement in like 15 minutes if you have 2 controllers and the attention span to run yourself off a cliff as player 2 a hundred times, but it's basically impossible to do without the expansion. The only thing holding me back from a 235/235 right now is the 50 in challenge mode...

Schloob
01-28-2008, 03:00 PM
You can take Undertow off the list of to be considered, the 10,000 kill achievement is worth 35 points so at best you could realistically get to 165 points only within the 3 hour limit for quick 200's. I believe, it has been a few months now, but it took at least about 8-10 hours to get the 10,000 kills for me.

In my opinion, TRON needs to be moved from "candidates" into the very difficult category.

Between the unresponsive controls (not entirely, but certainly not easy), and the 1 achievement of USER - Level 12 (worth 45 points) on default settings that should be enough.

lern2zhelm
02-06-2008, 07:44 AM
Luxor 2 should be on the main list, while Omega 5 should be added. If you've ever played Luxor 2, it takes an immense amount of skill or luck to obtain the 5 Days of Thoth achievement, and 250,000,000 points total to obtain the Pharoah of the Two Lands.

Pharoah of the Two Lands - 20G
5 Days of Thoth - 15G

Not to mention the story mode is extremely long, taking over 3 hours itself to complete, without the other achievements. I haven't beaten it yet, so I'm not sure if beating it on Expert will unlock the previous difficulties' points, but assuming it DID, we have:

Easy: 15G
Normal: 17G
Expert: 19G

Altogether: 51/200G

Some achievements will be unlocked throughout though, so it's about 120/200 in reality, depending how good you are.

Omega Five is just very difficult in the fact that the creators made it ridiculously hard to dodge bullets and scenery since your character takes up about 1/6 of the screen.

Anyways, there's my 2 cents, take it or leave it.

I say bump Small Arms up to the list. Get it off the candidates list. It's really easy to get 170/235. The last 65 GS aren't hard at all, but require you to play a lot of online or a lot of missions. I think I've invested 3 hours into the game so far so another 1-2 will get me my last 3 achievements. Last 3 are the Win 50 and 100 Matches and play 100 matches. I'm around 40 won matches and 60 played matches in just 3 hours.

All right, ecco is definetly not an easy 200 considering only 2 people at this site have the 200, it requires you to beat it 2 times (i only had the patience to beat it once :P)(once is not an even an easy feat, it takes around 3 hours with cheap and easy deaths). Yie-ar kung fu is not easy, only easy if you have already done it and it requires alot of luck with the last 2 bosses. I BARELY got that 200. A game where only 150 people in the world have completed it, should not be a candidate. Xevious requires some skill and a guide. This thread continuously discusses the same breed of games= sonic 1,2, aegis wing, Carcassonne, umk 3, golden axe, uno. Where is the variety? Just because there is a guide for a game doesn't mean that it suddenly becomes easy. I probaly just made a fool of myself, didn't I?

Poker Smash as a candidate?

I find geometry wars amazingly difficult, and am impressed with my 100/200 in it. A friend of mine got 200/200 in in about 3 hours after downloading it. But hes just a very skilled gamer. He did call of duty 2 and 3 on veteran in a weekend... the same weekend. But he still freaks out playing kameo. Hes one of those bizzar breeds of players who does not care about overall score, but what achievements show skill. He got a bunch of the A ranking co-op 0 point achievements but didn't even bother with the ones that offer points. Hes got around 30k atm, but he could easily have 3 times that. Sounds like me..


On topic.. I think undertwo should be added, aresenal and lord of the deep take alot of patience/luck.

Blackjaw x
02-10-2008, 04:23 AM
Is Totemball really still only a candidate?
Other than account recoveries, I believe only around 10 people have 200 in this game.
It takes extreme skill and patience, the game is basically unplayable.
One of the achievements requires picking up 989 objects while beating the game in one sitting, without losing all your lives and with no going back or seeing your count.
With the game being this unplayable, that's as hard as getting all of the Lambdas in Half Life without a left thumbstick.

Switchball should not be a candidate. It should be on the tough 200's. Completing all gold on every level seems very hard. It is do-able but it would take a good 15+ hours (atleast) after including retry's... finding hidden routes... Learning the puzzles. Unless you know the game off by heart I would assume this game is a tough one.

Poker Smash as a candidate? I'd second that.

Last I checked, the only one to have 200 in it was the creator himself, who's been playing it for two years. I'm sure there are more now, but the full 200 takes a tremendous amount of skill and practice, and not to mention luck.

About 1/3 of the achievements are extremely hard, another 1/3 take quite a bit of time, and the other 1/3 can be gotten relatively easy, but require some skill.

"All Hands" and "Chain Monster" alone make this a tough 200.

02-13-2008, 10:28 PM
I would say most of the 200 I have on my list are easy once you get used to it. Also fatal fury is easy as long as the achivements don't glitch like mine did! Undertow is easy even for the 10,000 kills. Do training over and over. Very quick kill boost. And Wik is not easy! I hate that game!..... I got like 3 more challenge chapters to do. I can't stand it.

It's not on there because it's not easy. Sure, a few people have been able to get 200 in it, but it requires a good deal of skill, certainly not enough that can be picked up in 1, or even sometimes 10 hours of gameplay.

185K is definately not easy. The rest is manageable if you can get 4 players to stick through insane mode with you. I had to use two controllers with player 2 using displacement fields to get enough points for the Ace acheivement.

He's already stated that they all take less than 3 hours to ge 180 points in, that's about as specific as it needs to be. You can always look at the game's respective achievement list in order to determine for yourself just how easy they may be.

What about Shrek n' Roll. I did the whole game in about 2-3 hours. The first 30 minutes where getting used to the controls then the levels where a breeze.


edit: b/c I didn't want to double post and just checked the first page again.

I got ever arcade game that has come out so far and most of the games in the candidates available category should be in the hard one. Most all arcade games have one or two really tough achievements that require some skill or time. Also I don't think War World is out yet so it should not be in in the candidates category. Thats just my humble opinion.

Tempest - Which I am one of three in the world that have 175/200 according to MGC.net - reaching the random waves 25gs is VERY hard to complete.

Missle Command - I was around 4th in the world to 200/200 it and was hit up by everyone in the world to play it for them or help out with the gsaving. I don't know how to gsave and it was too dang hard for myself to complete it and it took about 2 weeks to complete on my own card to do it for anyone else....... There are only 16 people in the world that have completed it at this time....

I think you should put the boosting needed sign behind Hardwood Hearts. Haven't played Spades and Backgammon so I don't know about those. The reason is that the 10 cosecutive wins is pretty hard to do alone, and if you did it alone, it would probably take more than 3 hours unless your pretty lucky.

You can also put Undetow as a tough game, as there is no way you would be able to complete the game in less than 3 hours. The Ultra difficulty is pretty hard to do alone, and the 10000 kills achievements takes some time to do. I think I got about 8 hours played, and around 4000 kills. However I haven't tried to get as many kills as possible in the shortest time yet, as I am still trying to solo the Ultra mode.

btdavis22
03-13-2008, 09:14 AM
You should do ultra with a group of people. Thats how i did it and it makes it much easier especially in the later levels. But I agree it should be in the tough just for the kills achievement.

rsxdelerium
03-13-2008, 07:37 PM
It's not that hard to get 10,000 kills in Undertow. All you have to do is keep replaying a level and I got about 130 kills per round and the rounds ended up being like what, less than 5 minutes? It's not quick but I dont' think it's hard either.

Catan should definitely be listed under "Tough."

"Statesman of Catan" and "Chancellor of Catan" (both worth 20gs) require at minimum 50 and 100 online ranked games to be played, respectively (and that is if you won every single game). That is just physically impossible with the time it takes to play each game online.

One achievement requires you to earn 280 million points through the entire course of the game - one level nets you 100k-200k.

Small Arms should be added to the easy list. With two controllers and the YouTube videos available, it takes all but two hours to get all the achievements that have any gamerscore attached. Yea you have to buy additional content, but it is basically free points.

Catan and Carrassocne (sp?) should be on there. THose games are easy and fun and with boosting achieveable in no time at all.

I Don't know about quick... Catan sometimes is glitched and I've played about 100 games and still don't have the 100 point achievement and I've installed it now on my 3rd 360 so something's gotta give there.

You can probably add Rocky and Bullwinkle to the tough list.

The game in itself ain't that hard once you get a hang of the minigames, but two of the achievements; "The Young Storyteller" and "Hare Loss" might take you an extremely long time to get, depending on the time it takes for you to get those minigames at the right time.

I think I probably used more than 10 hours, and I was playing mainly to get all the achievements. However, I didn't time it, so I might be wrong.

i think ikaruga and rez should be in the tough 200's. for me, ikaruga is in the impossible 200's... i don't see many people getting A grades on many of the levels, if any.
i got an A on the first level :D

also ikaruga and triggerheart exelica should be added to the list because they both have achievements that are almost impossible, like you actually need to be a god

I would actually consider Rocky & Bullwinkle to be an easy 200 - since the Secret Formula is posted just about everywhere as are the locations for "Hare Loss" - the only real challenge is "The Young Story Teller" because it's random which minigames pop up. Once you get the hang of it, to run through a whole game and get to the level 5 games takes about 7 minutes (and then you get 3 random minigames) but I think you could probably finish this 200/200 in about 5 hours.

Lost Cities should be moved to the hard 200's.

The 25 point achievement for 300 wins pushes it into the hard 200's time frame. The very fastest you can boost 300 wins is approximately 3 mins a win and that is if you and your boosting partner are damn near flawless in the execution of the quick boost method I am currently writing for the Lost Cities Achievement guide.

So 25-35 points(you would get your 20 1v1 achievment) = 900 minutes or 15 hours.
135 points = 20-30 minutes depending

The full 200 would take approx 20-25 hours imo if most of the 300 wins were boosted in the 1v1 fashion.

This one depends too much on luck. I used at least 10 hours to get full 200, because I never got the games I needed for "Hare Loss" and "The Young Storyteller".

I know people have already mentioned them but I thought more people would give u a better idea of the placement. Aegis wing should be on quick 200 list cause u can use a trick to get the 185,000 achieve and even without that one u still get 180 in under 3 hours. Undertow should be on the tough 200 list because it takes some time to do all 15 missions on Ultra even with 4 players and the 10,000 kills can take about 3 hours on its own.

Brain Challenge should DEFINITELY be in the touch category. Bringing your brain up to 100% usage takes about 50-60 daily tests, and then you have to win 100 online matches, and get the highest rank possible (A+) on all difficulties of all mini-games, making for a total of 75 A+es, some of which you need to be very smart and somewhat gifted to get.

Battlezone should be on the tough list. The game is as good as impossible to get all achievements in, and as the hardest achievement is worth 30 points, you won't get 180 in it either.

He probably want Rocky and Bullwinkle on the quick ones, but I would say that Rocky on Bullwinkle should be on the tough one. It can be done in less than three hours however, you will need a lot of luck to get it done by then, and most people would usually use more than 10 hours as two of the achievements are too much luck based. Just like the "get all hands"-achievements in the poker games can be done really fast for some people, it usually won't, just like with two of the achievements in this game. However, they are more common than the poker achievements, so it won't take you forever, even though it might take long.

I don't know if this post made any sense, but to sum it up:
In my opinion, Rocky and Bullwinkle should be on the tough list.

I used at least 10 hours playing mainly for the achievements. The "Hare Loss", and "The Young Storyteller" borh required multiple hours each.

I think the Hardwood games should have the boosting sign behind them. The reason for this, is that the "insert number"- of wins in a row is practically impossible to do alone. At least not within the first 3 hours. I only have experience with Hearts, but I would suppose it is pretty similar with the two other games.

Why the hell is Catan on the 'Quick 200 List'?

Last time i checked, one would need 500 respectively 1000 ranked winning points for 2 of the Achievements. Considering that you can ultimately get 10 - 11 points in one play (if you are the winner) and a play takes at least 5 - 10 minutes when boosting (30 - 60 minutes when you play properly), this is in no way a quick 200gs.
Just to do the math for you: If we say that you win every single game in only 5 minutes, that would still take you 500 minutes (nearly 8.5 hours) for the 1000 ranked.

The other Achievements can be done in 3 hours, but that would leave you with 160gs omitting the two above mentioned Achievements.

I do not think that counts as fast...

Or did i miss something? :confused:

1) Have only played C.E. yet, but it seems that there is one achievement in pacman and miss pacman that is harder then the others. (eating 4x4 ghosts in succession or something)

2) Golden axe is way easier than DD.

3) 3D Ultra Minigolf can be mad fun with friends and the 200 are pretty easy. The medals can be a little time consuming though, because you have to play a whole course and cannot just load up a single hole.

4) Don't get the Update then. ;)

Really sorry if this has already been discussed but I think Switchball should be on the hard list because of the Speedroller achievements; Speedroller Master itself is 30 G

Also, Wik: Fable of Souls is listed under Easy 200/200 and Available Candidates

Totemball should probably go into the Hard 200/200; to me, it's seemingly impossible to get basically any achievements on it (but there is a guide now so who knows)..

Also, Catan shouldn't be in the easy section. Takes too long to get above 180.

Live Score Tracker should absolutely be on the Quick List.

The only catch is two of the achievements require you play it on days when the NFL has a Thursday and a Saturday game. The only Saturday game remaining on the calendar is December 20th, so it'll be awhile before you get the full 200.

Otherwise, as long as you play it on a Sunday & a Monday you'll get an EASY 185 points in less than 10 minutes. I mean, seriously, you get achievements for hitting the start button, hitting the pause button, changing the volume.... it's ridiculous.
