    When I did this, I simmed EVERY season. Be prepared for ultimate boredom and it takes at least four hours to complete.
    It does not have to be done in one session and you can save your progress (credit goes to MissJaded for this info).

    Just simulate every game until Year 2035.Just an idea on how long it takes

    6:05 minutes to complete a year=365 seconds
    30 x 365 = 10,950 seconds to complete achievement

    10,950/60 = 182:30 minutes

    3 hours 2 minutes 30 seconds if staying attentive the whole time

    Dont play the whole thing....Im warning you

    This achievement is just brutal to sit through. I'm currently still working on it, doing it bit by bit while watching videos and listening to music on my laptop which kind of makes this easy 400g not so bad...

    this achievement also helps you get every other achievement in the game. Before you start your franchise or go for any achievement you should go to the options and change the sliders for the user to full (100) and everything except kickoff power and maybe punting power down to 0 for the cpu. Also change the rules to how you want ( i got rid of roughing the passer to make the sacking achievement not cost me time stoppage and negative yards) and set the quarter time to 2 minutes.

    * note- achievements will not pop until the end of the game

    Start up your franchise ( i chose the steelers, great receivers, BigBen has a great arm in madden games and Willie is great in the game ). Before u start go to the record books which is in the franchise menu and click on i think nfl records, that should pop a 10g achievement.Play the first game and you should be able to get:
    activate any RS card: i think this is for looking at the stats in a game by clicking right stick.
    Score a TD: simple enough
    Four sacks: if you don't do it in the first game, do it in the second
    Pass for 350+ yards or rush for 200+ yards ( you might be able to get both) * you should return punts and kicks back to your 1-4 yard line to give u more yards when u run/pass the ball
    gain a first down ( i just ran out of bounds after the 1st down marker )
    complete an offline game
    and of course win a user controlled franchise game.

    it took me 2 games to get 9/11 achievements.

    now save your game and u can sim every game ( i saved after every game and made sure i went 16-0 ) do the same through the playoffs make sure you sim that playoff week only and do not sim to the super bowl. Now u can set the quarters to one minute and win the superbowl game ( you may be able to sim but i lost 3x in a row so i just played a 4 minute game ).

    so thats 10/11 easy achievements that should take u no more than 25 minutes.

    And back to this last achievement... you just sim the rest of the seasons and there you have an easy 1000G and 1,115TA score.

    this achievement is easy to do but takes 3-4 hours
    choose your team you want to be and then you have to do the following: -

    - sim pre-season - 4 weeks - takes a couple of minutes
    - sim regular season - 17 weeks - takes about 5-6 mins
    - sim super bowl & pro bowl - takes 2 mins

    - then in my opinion what takes the longest is (off-season)
    sim this, this is where retirements, new signings, and other things take place i found as i got further through seasons that this took longer and longer as lots was changing about 10 minutes.
    achievement will pop at the end of pro-bowl 2033 prepare for lots of waiting about.

    I simmed every season as well, and this only took me about 2 1/2 hours. If you're paying attention the sim will only take about about 3-5 minutes per season. The lengthy portion of the 3-5 minutes is for off-season signing of free agents.

    From the Main Menu, select Franchise. Choose a team. Simulate everything.
    (Off-Season, Pre-Season, Regular Season, Playoffs, Super Bowl, & Pro Bowl.)
    The Off & Regular Seasons take the longest to simulate.

    Once the Pro Bowl has finished, the year will go up by one.

    Simulating 30 years will take you 4 hours, BUT you can come back to it at a later time.
    Your progress does save.

    You WILL occasionally have to hit the A or Start button to advance.
    This is mainly caused by coach firings, which are arguably natural in the NFL.

    The Achievement popped once I reached 2033, deemed as The End of Franchise Mode.
    Hope this helped!

    It unlocked for me after the 2033 season. Even though that only makes it 28 years of franchise, I’ve experienced it popping a little early in Madden 07 as well.

    I can't believe this is my achievement worth the most. Insane. Of the 200+ games, and 6,000+ achievements. This is worth the most. Crazy.

    Very boring one, just simply sim 30 seasons. It takes around 3-4 hours to do. I was watching a movie at the same time.
    400 GS - "just like that" :)
