CAPCOM Arcade CabinetRetro ObsessiveThe Retro Obsessive achievement in CAPCOM Arcade Cabinet worth 685 pointsClock in 50 hours of playing time.

In order to get any of the time-based achievements, you have to actually "play" the game; You can't leave it in the pause menu or on the title screen of the cabinet or any of the games themselves.

There are a total of 17 games if you buy all the DLC. If you average 2-3 hours per game, you should earn this by playing normally when going for all other achievements. If you own this Cabinet, then you probably want to play the games from olden days and should hold off trying to get this until you get frustrated or burnt out as you will gain time cumulatively with each game you play.


It has been pointed out in the other solutions and comments for the time-based achievements that you can get this in several different games (such as Black Tiger which it comes with among others) by holding down the "Start" button on a wired controller (NOTE - not the "Back" button).
Be sure to turn off the "Save Replay" option and leave the game running. This will essentially select the "Continue" option and keep the game "actively" running until you obtain the achievement. Also make sure to back out to the menu if doing this over multiple sessions so that your progress gets saved instead of going to Dashboard or shutting off.
