The Quick & Tough 200s

Here it is lady and gentlemen! I know the list before was never updated. Well, here is to a fresh start. Plus, there is new criteria for what qualifies as a tough or easy 200 points for XBLA games. Without further ado, here is the new criteria and list for quick 200s.

Thanks to PerpetualHeaven for creating this list.

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 200":-
(1) The game must take no more then 15 hours to attain the GS amount listed under
(2) 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 200.
(F) Denotes games that are free.

Under 5 hours:-

Looks real good so far, keep up the good work.

Only thing I can find is that you might want to add that you will need to boost for Undertow. The community for the game is beyond dead, and you will need a few people for at least 4 achievements.

Pretty solid list. Though personally, I'd put Braid in the 5-15 hour category...that time attack achievement is pretty tough.

Also, Yaris isn't available to download anymore, right?

I moved Braid and removed Yaris. You are correct. Unless you previously had it and it's in your download history, it cannot be downloaded anymore. Good catch.

Great list, dont mean to be picky... well I do

Your link to the Golden Axe guide is wrong, you've linked to other game, not the arcade game.

Here's the link you want

I appreciate you being picky! It helps makes these guides even better. Thank you for the updated link.

Mega Man 9 - Tough (several runs required, some are quite difficult- skill required)

Both games will definitely take more than 15 hours. I'd say MM9 is around 15-20, and BCR could be around 30 or more, depending on how good you are.
Added both games to the tough list. Thanks.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is under 5 if you use extra controllers from what I hear. Im downloading now and ill confirm this later .

Played my first game and got most of the achievements in the first game. This is definately under 5 hours but it will go by faster if you use 3 extra controllers .

Perhaps you can asterisk or note the games that take 2 hours or less, just an idea

This looks great, btw.

I totally agree, the only thing is the last achievement where you need to play an online game with 2 guests, some people might not have 2 extra controllers. But other then that the achievements are really easy, a great game too btw.
I'd say an hour, 2 at most for the full 200.

You can add: Double Dragon and Pac-Man C.E. to the 'Under 5 Hours' List and you could change the name of TMNT to 'TMNT 1989 Arcade' since that is how it is listed on your gamercard and the marketplace. Just some suggestions

I have a quick question (and I would like a quick answer). Which game is the fastest for 200G? Like the Avatar under the XBLA games !
