I feel like these articles could use some work. Instead of this obsession with easy completions, you should base the list on most enjoyable or maybe most price-worthy completions.
Would you kindly?

Maybe adding a completion percentage on this chart as well would be helpful. Babylon pinball, for example, has only a 6.96% completion so I'm guessing unless you are a pinball god this is going to be out of the average persons reach. I usually click on each game I don't know about anyway so that I can see the price and learn more about it but it would be helpful.

That being said, I do like and appreciate these articles.

I would exactly say Babylon 2055 pinball is the fastest unless you are good with it.

The going full cycle with all the table can be quite tricky. (At least for me)

Overcooked is hard if you're alone and you can't play online. I would recommend it only if you have a couch partner.

This, 100%

I always found these articles mostly pointless mainly because it never factors the possible expensive prices new yet super short indie games tend to be these days.

3.77 ratio for that top achievement too.

These articles aren't for me but I see the appeal. That said I do think the poster should sense check before posting. Currently this feels just like an auto generated news report. Would have taken under 2 minutes to see that it had a sub 10% completion rate. Whereas most easy cheeve games have very high completion rates. Reason I say this is because I've learned these lessons before so it's hopefully constructive criticism.

overcooked is NOT a 6 to 8 hour completion. It can be if you use a video guide and memorize video's for every level. Even then, it requires frustratingly fast reflexes to not fail a few times on a few levels.

It took me twice as long as the estimate to finish it.

I liked the game though, so i bought the sequel when it was on sale.

It isn't easy completions if 90% of people are unable to even complete all these games.

"Most enjoyable" is subject to opinion though. If they wrote an article like that I'm sure people would complain that they didn't find the game enjoyable and would rather them only point out easy completions, etc.

It's highly relevant to the website though. This is an achievement hunting website after all.

A quick write up on the top rated games in each sale would be cool, but I don't think there's anything wrong with these articles existing.

It's fastest completions, not easiest.

I agree. It would be nice to have some additions to the article, though. Like “highest rated from the sale”, “TA recommends”,
or “most bang for your buck” etc. These articles are useless because a $50 game could be 10% off and qualify for this list.
Would you kindly?

I tried Babylon Pinball 2055 and have absolutely no idea what I'm supposed to do. It doesn't help that there is no help section or tutorial in the game. I'm stuck on the 3rd table and I don't know what I'm supposed tot do to "beat" tables.

I have a friend who once pronounced Babylon as “Baby-lawn”, and I can never look at it the same way ever again.

Each table has a number of lanes with flashing arrows at the beginning of them. You have to shoot your ball through each lane a couple of times depending on how many arrows it has. Once you've done this for each lane, the gate opens and you can shoot it there to complete the table.
