Games to play with your Girlfriend that won't ruin your completion percentage

As the thread title says I'm looking for co-op games (maybe light competition like kart racing) that are fun to play with your girlfriend and don't land you with a ridiculous grind at the end of it all when the game is finished.

We've completed Up. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is being played through at the moment. I also picked up You're In The Movies aswell.

Looking for others.

I'm from Europe but I also have an American Xbox so US exclusives are OK.

Not meaning to insult any girl gamers here. My girlfriend is the casual of casual gamers. She loved the Up and Cloudy... Movies (I did too by the way) and this has opened her up to playing some games with me.

hasbro family game night wouldn't be a bad idea. the retail version shouldn't set you back much and it's an easy 1400.

only others i'm coming up with are ice age 3 and where the wild things are, but i really don't remember if these have co op options or not.

Surf's Up.

Easy 1000 AND it's a fun game. Probably the one I enjoyed the most of my 'score whore' games.

Scene it is a lot of fun, you could also play Monopoly, Karaoke American Idol, Lips, CSI: Hard Evidence, Soul Calibur, Viva Pinata, and a slew of Arcade games.

Well I don't care about my own completion, but my last girlfriend liked to play puzzle quest and we split up before she finished it leaving me with like 50/250. What a bitch. My new girlfriend told me she likes the tomb raider games, but she hasn't played my xbox yet.

I'm surprised that you have a girlfriend if you care about completion percentage j/k

No but seriously, why not just make a few spare accounts to mess about on, and then you can play whatever you want with her, without worrying about percentages?

Isn't your completion percentage kind of ruined already? I can't say you really care about it if you're at 58%. Anyways, here are some easy ones since I've done them myself or will be: Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, and Scene It games. They're all extremely easy and fun to play. I finished Monopoly and Scene It! BOS with my girlfriend. Trivial Pursuit is on my list next. It keeps her busy and out of my completion percentage.

It's 58% because I buy so many games and then just play Gears 2, haha. I still have all those games and I do intend to play them....someday. Point was playing games that might only be fun because we're playing them together. I want to limit the amount of stuff I would have to grind out if possible.

Some good suggestions there anyways so far, cheers.

As most other people have said, 'Scene It: LCA' or 'Scene It: BOS'.

I recently played Splosion Man with my boyfriend on co-op. That was pretty fun so you could always get that from the Arcade?

Um doesn't viva pinata take HOURS on its achievements? it think there is one to play at least 50 hours to get it, I don't remember the actual number. And some collection achievements are rather a pain in the ass. But if she likes it and spends so much time on it, then it would be an easy game.

Avatar is an easy 1000G I hear. Just completing the story, and if I'm not mistaken, King Kong is 1000G for just beating it.

For arcades, Kingdom for Keflings might be something she likes, easy achievements, you just need to basically beat the game. The Maw is easy, pretty, cute and hella fun, you get a premium theme from beating it too xD

I could probably think up a few more

Oh man, splosion man can get so frustrating esp in co-op (not nearly as hard as N+ but I think thats what they had in mind making the game) xD easy achievements though, and can be great fun if you have patience

The new Call of duty can always light a competitive fire between two people. Whether its playing over multiple boxes against one another or, taking it in some alone time and doing spec ops, never a bad choice

I have Splosion Man, but I'm playing through that with a friend so I haven't even mentioned it, haha.

I got Scene It? Box Office Smash with the 4 controllers for a good price on Amazon.co.uk there and it's arrived. Should be playing it at the weekend.

I actually shocked that Fable II hasn't been mentioned yet. Let her play as your henchman or visa versa. If you're both logged in (co-op on the same Xbox) you'll both get the achievements anyway.
