    This achievement requires paid content.

    Medals can only be earned in ranked play, and in games that you either own, are purchasing sessions with using the 40 MS point option, or on games that your console is licensed to (i.e. Someone else bought that game on your console). Medals can NOT be earned in demo play, classic play, or if you are using tokens to play a friend's machine.

    There are three medal varieties:
    Point Buster : These medals are awarded when you reach certain score targets.
    Survivalist : These medals are awarded for surviving a set amount of time in a single play.
    Time Spender : These medals are awarded for cumulative game play.

    Every game has a Time Spender medal. Note that Time Spender medals can be earned in ranked or classic play, and are cumulative between game sessions. Most games also have a Point Buster and Survivalist medal. Medals "upgrade" as you progress. What this means is that if you have a Bronze medal and suddenly earn a Silver medal, you only have a Silver Medal. This will only count as 1 medal. Bronze, silver, and gold medals all count.

    A chart of which games have which medals available, and the goals that must be met to get those medals is posted here:

    Edward HyenaIt is possible to unlock this offline because time spender medals can be earned outside of ranked play.

    Here is a list of all the games that I used to finish the game really easily. It is full of alot of rentals that you can either turbo one of the unused buttons or hit start to continue the time.
    If the timer stops counting be assured that it will still count for the gold. There is a timer at the top left of the screen that will tell you how long you have been playing for. You can verify how long each game will take here: http://www.tinyurl.com/GameRoomMedalChart

    AlbinoKidELITEIf you own twenty games then this is not even close to the cheapest way of doing it. A useful list, yes, but the game can be maxed for under 2000M$ (or whatever the equivalent is since they were discontinued) if you focus on single plays.
