Have a look at this thread. Stickied in the top of the "Games" forum. Good indication of the "quick and easy"s

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=124704

As for the "fun" component that all depends on what games you find fun. I like sports games so there are hundreds of easy achievement fun games I can play

For me the most fun and easy achievement games are
  • Fallout 3
  • Fable 2
  • Oblivion
  • Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman

Yeah I know about that thread but most of those are rent only. I'm thinking of getting Fallout 3, I've already got 1K in Lego Batman & Indiana Jones. I've also played both Lego Star Wars.

I would say Xmen Origins: Wolverine. It's quite a long game but if you stick to the guide then you will get a lot of G for it. It's great fun as well.

I heard it was short so I was going to wait a little bit until I get it. Are Bioshock & Orange Box easy?

Bioshock isn't really easy but it's great fun. I loved The Orange Box. It is really fun and the achievements are really easy on Half-Life and TF2. Portal achievements might be a little bit harder to get but still.

The Orange Box is a great game and you should get it regardless of achievements. There are some tough ones, especially the Portal medal achievements. And an annoying one where you have to play a game of TF2 with 7 friends ...

Again I recommend Bioshock even though there are some tough achievements (unless you use a guide, I suppose - they're collecting achievements).

I recommend Mass Effect. Great game, an easy 1000 in the sense that you won't need a guide, they're all straightforward. Also Oblivion, as mentioned above. It's very straightforward as well.

Personally I think Bioshock isn't particularly hard to get 1000 in as you can save whenever you like and there are many ulterior means of achieving goals. There are a few boss battles though where you'll need some ok FPS skills.

Orange box is easy easy easy to finish but some of the achievements (particularly portal) are hard or annoying (multiplayer Team Fortress - # of players).

Either way both are on my top 10 games list and, if you like fun games, should definitely be bought! Orange box is probably the best value for money I've ever seen as you really get 3 full games and 2 long expansions. And what games they are!

I actually quite enjoyed TMNT, and the 1000G are really easy.

Nah something that also has some replay value. I'll probably get OB & Bioshock, any other suggestions? Like one more game.

Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway. Easiest 800 g I ever acquired. Also, pretty fun watching the German's head explode whenever you get a headshot.

P.S. Bioshock isn't that easy, but you'll have a good time getting the 1000. Even after I was done with my 1100, I still played it 6 more times (the whole story).

I would also like to recommend Fallout 3 as an easy 1000, may take some time tho. Bioshock was an easy 1100 for me, well, much easier than CoDWaW atleast. Orange Box isn't an easy 1000, but you should get it anyways because it's a great game.

i recommend civilization revolution. the achievements are easy and the game is fun.

as for bioshock, the only hard part is the beginning of the game on hard going for the brass balls achievement. other than that it's fairly simple

You may think I am being biased here but I am not. Sonic Unleashed is one of the most fun Sonic games I have EVER played in years! It has some good 2D action too. If you have fun beating the crap out of enemies then the Werehog will make it even more enjoyable. It has a lot of replay value and collectables to get. It also has some DLC, despite not having achievements, I got all the packs and I am enjoying the DLC more than the original levels on the game. Sonic 3 on the Marketplace is also a quick and easy 200 G if you are good at Sonic games.

I thought Resident Evil 5 was a fun and easy 1000 and also Dead Space especially if you get the DLC for it then your all bad ass from the beginning

The Call of Duty games have always been fun for me to get all the achievements, and they are pretty easy.

Hmmm thanks guys. I might go to Game Stop this weekend, so hopefully they'll have some special 4th of July deals or something.
