    If you get Firewatch for the gamerscore, do yourself a favour and play it naturally once, then get the achievements (Same goes for What remains of Edith Finch). Really enjoyed this game, deserves to be experienced properly, I didn't mind the extra playthroughs for missed achievements, though it was slow at times.

    I remember picking up Three Fourths Home years ago and only about half of the achievements unlocked for me. Think the rest were buggy.

    Anyone know if this issue has been rectified?
    I had the same issue when I played, but they patched it like a year ago and they work again.
    Did you have to play through the game again? I just loaded mine up and nothing popped automatically so thinking I may have to.

    Indeed, very memorable artful games.

    Can we please add prices to this list? Its a pain to go through each game individually to find out
    I've put it to the devs. Watch this space...
    Perfect! If it can get added, it would be much appreciated from alot of us I'm sure!
    They used to show prices IIRC not sure exactly what happened but something with regions.

    A Winter's Daydream is even easier than CAN ANDROIDS PRAY: BLUE. You read through a nice little vignette just by pressing cn_A to get all achievements.

    It is seasonal, though, and best played around the Christmas holidays.

    Don't use a guide for Firewatch or What Remains of Edith Finch. Great games and super short without a guide

    GET FIREWATCH.

    Beyond that, ever want a 30k month? Here you go.

    I don't see The First Tree listed here, but it shows a 2-3 hour completion which seems to be in line with other times in this article.
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    Please, the % off doesn't help

    Was thinking of buying Storm boy , A winter's Daydream, Energy Cycle edge , The mooseman , The Station, Fire Watch and The little acre and was waiting for the price to go down . Sweeet, Looks like i'll be on 20k by end of this month.

    Love these articles. But my wallet hates them! It wouldn't be bad to sort them by completion times though. Instead of mixing them together! (Unless there is a reason for that. If there is I'll feel like s goofball.)

    Personally I would recommend doing this for all games, go in blind and undistracted first and then mop up whats worth collecting.

    Agreed, but definitely these 2.

    Brothers took me around 4 hours today to finish with some incompleted achievements. And Old Man's Journey took more then people say in game's profile. So those completion times are not very believable. Anyway thanks for the list. Great work, guys!
    Thanks, guys!

    My time on Xbox One for Brothers' completion was 2 hrs 37 mins (and the other one can be done in under 2 hours relatively easily).

    Tbf, I had already done Brothers on 360 so I never bothered to finish the story after the last achievement

    I don’t see Late Shift in the list but it’s on sale. I loved it so much, corniness aside. The acting was decent and it just had a quality I liked that the other FMV game, the Bunker, didn’t have. Recommend Late Shift.
    Always number 2.
