The Quick and The Easy 1000s List (or Close to)

This is the Quick 1000 (or close to) section. You must realize that this is a simple guideline. This is not a definitive list that will guarantee you completing the game in the categories provided. As such, please take this list with a grain of salt and realize that you may or may not finish the game completely, that you will disagree with many things on here, and that you may finish it quicker or slower than most. The more research done in terms of utilizing the forums found here, the quicker a game can be completed. So please, enjoy the list and read everything carefully.

Thanks to PerpetualHeaven for creating this list and to LilMissRoxy for keeping the list going

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 1000 (or close to)":-
(1) The game must take no more than 25 hours to attain the GS amount listed or is an easy title to get all the points even if it takes more then 25 hours.
(2) It is possible to attain at least 900 points.
(3) 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 1000.
(C) Denotes games that require collecting of various objects.
(K) Denotes games that require Kinect
*Denotes a game that can be done under 2 hours.

If you've completed any of the games listed within the "Under Discussion" section post your thoughts on whether or not they're a quick 1000, or feel free to suggest anything not listed. The abandoned are games that did not make either list or have not yet been discussed.

Games are not listed in order of difficulty within the subcategories.

The Quick 1000 (or close to) list:-

Under 5 Hours:-

Doesn't make sense to have the change log at the top, as I'd rather the first thing newcomers saw was the list itself. Having to scroll down to the 9th post is not a big hardship I feel.

All added. Thanks.

Will make the change, but things are only added on other peoples recommendations. So it's only when we get an alternative opinion that we can get things in the right place. Cheers.

I suggest to add in the list Grid 2 in the 15-25 hours.
The single player achievements are easy and quick to complete and the online ones can be easily boosted with a friend

Ice Age 4 the video game is not actually called Ice Age 4 like the movie. Its called

Ice Age: Continental Drift - Arctic Games

Not all that important. But it you search "Ice Age", there won't be any game called Ice Age 4( unless I am missing it). So it could be confusing.

The game comes up on your gamertag as Ice Age 4. Yeah, but the title on the case is actually Continental Drift - Arctic Games. I use the two terms interchangeably, so I didn't really think about it when I suggested it.

15-25 Hours Continued
The link is bad on this one, and it should be Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy.

I also think that Lego Indiana Jones should be moved to the 15-25 section from 10-15. That roadmap really isn't accurate with that time. I played it non-stop over a three day period when it first came out without doing anything to distract me and I completed it in just over 18 hours. It was short, but not that short.

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, The Lord of the Rings and Marvel Super Heroes should all be in the "25 Hours and Longer (Easy but Not Quick 1000)" section.

Add Truck Racer (B) to the 5-10 hours list. I got 1000/1000 in 9 hours 23 minutes according to my stats. It has online achievements that require boosting, hence the (B).

Also, I believe Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers should be removed from the list or, alternatively, have a (B) next to it. I would prefer the first option. Boosting is mandatory to get the 1000G as the online mode is completely dead. There is, however, another major obstacle that prevents the game being an easy 1000. A cautionary tale: some of the online achievements require 6 players. It's extremely difficult to even find one other player who wants to boost it. Very few people have the game and it's PAL only. I would stay clear of it unless you have 6 Xboxes and 6 Gold accounts (therefore having the ability to boost the online achievements alone.) I started the game because it was on the list; I regret that decision due to the online achievements being so difficult to obtain . It's an easy 640G from the single player achievements, but that isn't enough for it to be on the list.

After the struggle i had with getting 4 people together for damnation, i raised the issue that games shouldnt be on the list if it is very time consuming to gather enough people to meet the achievement requirement. However i was shot down pretty quickly and no one seemed to appreciate this is a valid issue with completion times. I have a feeling you were in on that convo too.

Having completed damnation, I have to say that once you have a boosting party, the boosting is relatively quick, so the completion time in-game is about right.

I think that something should maybe noted other than just (B) that detones that more than one boosting partner is needed.

LOL corrupt, do you not remember what a nightmare it was to boost this game? The mutual hatred we both shared for this game?

Yeah I do, but the actual in-game time was about right for the roadmap IIRC.

It may be a valid issue for you, but it isn't a valid issue for *EVERYONE* that's the key factor. It is listed as (B) so you can factor the amount of time it may take you to find people

For me it's ridiculously easy to find people.

If it's an old american game like Damnation or Hour of Victory I buy 2/3 copies, and get a friend of mine to buy three copies. And we triple/double box the game.

Finding people in that case is about 2-3 minutes of asking a friend in a party I'm always in while I game anyway.

If I really can't find people, you can always join boosting sessions on TA (Or the boost thread on this site if your so inclined).

Yeah, if you're really casual about it and you don't have a core-group, or don't have multipule boxes to double/triple box it *CAN* take you 5-6 hours (more maybe?) to find people. But this isn't the case for everyone.

The (B) is perfect for letting people know what they are getting into. If they have trouble finding people, they know to avoid games with that next to it.

I honestly see no problem.

The only issue I see here is that Air Conflicts: PC did not have a (B) next to it - mainly as it wasn't mentioned when someone suggested it. I've fixed that now but I think it would be common sense for people to check the relevant guides/forums and achievement lists before starting a game. I know I do.

With regards to removing older games that require 4+ people to boost, I would rather they stay on here. Again as long as they are labelled clearly then it shouldn't really be a problem - people are free to find likeminded gamers before they start a game and can give it a miss if not.

Personally I mainly boost with friends, but I'm also not adverse to getting a group of strangers together if needs be. In the past few years alone I've done Ghost Recon 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Splinter Cell Double Agent, Gears 1, Rockstar Table Tennis etc. These are games that are 5+ years old in some cases. So as long as you can find the bodies then the time scales are right on the money.

For you its easy, for the vast majority of people who are not prepared to buy 3 xboxs and 3 copies of a game and get 3 gold accounts it is a problem, and will blow out the completion time making it inaccurate for MOST people.

I just don't see what you are doing to get a group together that takes more than an hour? Sitting in the lobby for hours hoping for a random? Sending messages to hundreds of people asking them to buy the game? Just ask a friend, join a TA session, or send messages to people on the boosting thread here.

1. Create a boosting session that starts 2 weeks in the future
2. Play something else until that time.
3. Done

Yes i use TA. For old games there is often no sessions up so i have to create my own. What usually happens with games that requires 4 gamers or more is i will get 4 people to sign up for a session, then when the time comes only 2 will turn up and we will sit in the lobby for half an hour waiting for a no show, or someone will be late, then we will get maybe 10 mins worth of gaming done and then someone bails.... happens all the time. I dont see why this is such a hard concept for people to grasp, am I the only person in the world that gets fucked around by other gamers while tryng to boost?

Well I guess people don't like you then . TA uses a feedback system so I suggest you make use of it when letting people into your sessions.

LSS (B) sums up your problem adequately.

You're not the only one. I once messaged a guy an entire month in advance to boost the last DLC for Halo 4, we kept in contact and made sure that we had enough controllers to do it with just us. The release day comes and he isn't online. For some reason I get the feeling to check his profile, and what do you know? He already earned half of the achievements. I check 5 minutes later, and he's earned yet another one. That's just one example. It took me over two years to mop up the last GH5 achievements, and TF2 on the Orange Box took another year. We would get about 6 to 7 people planned out, and either the group would just suddenly fall apart, or they had too many people and I was the one to be ditched.
