Stackable Games for Gamerscore (2+ Versions with Achievements)
Please do not ask in this thread about upcoming games stacking. Unless the game is confirmed to be GFWL with no cross-platform functionality, there is no way for us to know that information until we find a stacking game on someone's profile. And if that happens, it will certainly be posted about right away by myself or one of our many experts. So as not to annoy me, just assume every game will not stack, and then when an announcement comes that one does, you can be pleasantly surprised. Thanks!
Also, please check the Change Log below before asking any questions. The main body of the thread does not get updated very frequently, so this will have any news on the newest stacking games first.
The purpose of this thread is to make note of all the games that can be played more than once for extra gamerscore. If this concept confuses you, here are three situations that exist to cover why this thread is needed:
- Games that can be played on the 360 and on the PC for points both times.
- Games that can be played on the 360 from multiple regions for points each time.
- [Upcoming] Games that can be played on the 360 and the One for points each time.
Be aware that most of these games are region specific. So, when attempting to purchase a game off this list that you will need the appropriate console to play it. If a game is listed as having a German version and you live in the US, it will most likely not play on your console. There are three different types of 360 consoles. They are as follows:
- NTSC (North America)
- PAL (Europe/Australia)
- NTSC-J (Asia)
Now, however many versions of a game appear below, that is the number of times it can appear on your gamercard and can be played for points. BioShock is obviously one of the most "whoreable" games (not a real word) and can be played a total of 4 times. However, this game illustrates an issue where DLC achievements may not appear on all versions. I have noted this issue when it occurs.
Concerning any Xbox Live Arcade games: these can all be played on your same main console, but you will need to create a new Gamertag from that specific region to download them. You will also need to add points to that tag as they will not transfer from your main name. Once you have downloaded the game, you can switch to your main profile and play it from there to get your extra points.
The above linked social group was created for further discussion of stackable games. There you may find additional information by some of our experts about how to obtain some of the games below. A few require extra lengths (VPN tricks, credit cards from the specific region, etc) or extra accounts and different region MSP, so you may find information about that there.
So, on to the lists... each game is linked to its achievement page on the main site, and the total number of versions will be in parentheses after the name of the game. Now, please also note that when I say "all other regions" that a game may not actually be available in your specific region. Some games do not get EU releases or NA releases, or take a long time to come out in other regions. What I mean by "all other regions" is that any other version of the game you purchase will only appear as one list on your gamercard and that you should use the linked checklist if you play it. Only the versions listed with the specific country or region are the "stackable" versions.
Information on Mobile games (WP7/8)
Due to the inherent difference in the platform (the Windows Phone 7/8), we will not be listing WP7/WP8 games as stackable, despite many similar titles being available with achievements. There are quite a few XBLA ports that might warrant additions (Frogger, etc.), but because there are also some retail ports (Guitar Hero 5, etc.) the distinctions will be too varied and it is best to just avoid the "this should, this shouldn't" issues that will likely come about.
