Fun games with easy achievements...

Most games that are actually fun have really hard achievements, it's usually the bad games that have the easy ones. The issue with the list of quick 1k's is that it doesn't take into consideration for one how hard it is and two how fun it is. For example the 1k/1k in borderlands takes about 30 hours compared to a game you don't like it'll fly by.

A few games I know that are actually fun and are easy are the lego games, borderlands, and more recently Gun, A game that plays just like rockstars red dead redemption.

Anyone know any other FUN games that have EASY achievements, (Amount of time doesn't matter unless it's a menial task.) For example completeing all missions in fallout 3 takes 80 hours but spewnding 80 hours in gears of war for seriously would become rtedious.

Any easy games that are fun?

I heard bully is a fun game with easy achievements but it takes 20 hours. I don't mind as I would enjoy the game. I want more suggestions such as bully...

People tend to disagree with eachother when it comes to "fun".
For example, I honestly thought Lost was pretty fun to play and it's a VERY easy game to 1k. Alot of ppl absolutely hate the game Lost.

I thought Avatar TBE was fun, for about 30 seconds... which is the total time I played it for to get 1000.

Seriously though fun is too much an opinion to make a list based on how fun something is... I love borderlands but a friend of my hated it so much when he tried it with me, he said it was way too boring for him.... See what I mean?

Alan wake was pretty fun if you don't mind a ton of collectibles. Bulletstorm is fairly simple and achievements aren't that hard.

And I agree with Lost. That was a surprisingly fun game to play but many people hated it.

Dead Space was rather fun & easy- well there's one cheeve that can be hard but that's it. Honorable mention also goes out to Darksiders.

OT- I played Lost and while I didn't like it, I was surprised at how much better the game was then I thought it would be.

Halo 3 co-op with some friends on legendary can easily net you 800+ in a day. God the laughs from everyone when me and my one friend kept dying so much.

i actually enjoyed TMNT. there were no glaring problems with it, it just that they didn't aim massively high in the first place. cod 5 for example gets a better review than this game because of better graphics, game play(sometimes), and longevity. however it has problems, and while i'm sure that was taken into account it doesn't get a lower score than a low budget game with no problems.

plus not having collectible or online achievements in the same game is a godsend.

Well id say A kingdom of keflings (XBLA) and Ra-skulls (XBLA) are both 200g a piece Doritos crash course another 200... Umm lets see, most xbla are easy to get achievements and ERAGON the game is a easy 1k .. if your into RPG eternal sonata is pretty easy for achievements because u just have to do the whole story line to get them all the battles r tough but still fun kind of running on empty now <3 happy gaming

As you mentioned Rockstar, why not try out Bully:SE? I found that to be very easy and not massivley time consuming and if you have played Red Dead Redemption/GTA you should be more than familiar with the style. Also, it should be very cheap by now.
Hitman Blood Money is also another one that I found to be a really easy and fun 1k.

Obviously the fun aspect is subjective though.

Yeah, the Lego games are easy and fun.

I think Assassins Creed I & II are both easy and fun. Some collectables that can be a pain but nothing too crazy.

I liked Prey, thought it was advanced for it's time and really enjoyed. But it's impossible to get 100 % now because of all the online plays you need to make. And nobody is ever playing the game online any more.

LIMBO and Alan Wake.

Whoa whoa whoa, L4D easy? Maybe for you but they were murder for me and I still haven't done the expert runs.

Aaaanyway, The Sims 3 achievements are pretty easy, just time consuming, but I was so addicted to it I only really noticed toward the end. Viva pinata, practically ancient now but another game I got quite addicted to and if you know someone with it it's even easier since you don't need to get all the pinata yourself, your friend can just send you ones over XBL, so easy if you can do that.

Bioshock 2 wasn't hard, regardless of the general opinion I really liked that game too, the hard difficulty achievement is easy considering there's no penalty for dying and no enemies respawn if you die. Online achievements can drag on a bit though and that part of the game's quite boring.

LEGO games, I'm not a huge fan but loads of people like them and they have easy achievements. Oblivion, long game but like you said, Fallout 3 is long but you don't notice it.

All I can think of right now.

Singularity, The Godfather II, and Quantum of Solace are relatively easy games in terms of gamerscore and are also very enjoyable.

To agree with something that was previously said, fun depends on the person. Every now and then I enjoy a pointless killing game that makes fun of itself. Destroy all Humans : Path of the Furon was a fun game with a lot of parody. I feel it's quite the stupid game with obvious quests and not much of a plot development, but that's not what I played it for. And achievements are easy to get through

If gib fest is one of the mutations they let you play whenever, Left 4 Dead 2 expert achievement is pretty easy solo.
