    Is there a way to find the easiest completions in our game libraries? Or in the current game pass? Just incase one of those 10k achievements/points deals comes up again? Thanks.
    Killin' grubs is my business and business is good.

    I bought AER-Memories of Old during a previous sale, but primarily for the nature of the game and the artwork--it's a very good game if you just want to relax or chill. I eventually completed it a few months ago in stages to help do the Microsoft Rewards weekly quests (when they required getting 3 achievements).

    I'd recommend it on its own merits even without the quick completion. toast

    I started Machinarium on XBGP for PC last night, and it doesn't have achievements. *Sulk*
    It's actually very annoying how so many interesting looking PC only gamepass titles are achievementless. Heave Ho being one of the newest disappointments, it looked interesting but has no achievements.

    I highly recommend Glass Masquerade. It was so enjoyable I had to buy the second as soon as I finished, and I wish there were more puzzle games like it.
    Also Storm Boy, Fearful Symmetry, Woodle and Refunct: 4 super easy games and you can get all of them for under $5. Not bad.
    Thanks mate, I'll take a look. I did really enjoy Refunkt and Storm Boy as quick easy completions. I've not been G whoring recently all too much, as been playing the odd few Switch and PS4 games. Need to get back in the zone ahead of XSX!

    Storm Boy was great, would recommend, especially if you have kids.
    Yes I totally agree. Loved Storm Boy. Fun game - cheap - easy completion, it's perfect

    Pretty easy if you follow a guide. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=70021...
    Thanks Maka!
    The filter option would work perfectly in your case and all around just makes so much sense even looking outside of the achievement community.

    Picked up Machinarium -- lots of positive comments

    50% off is the minimum before I consider, given the size of my backlog

    I highly recommend Refunct. All the achievements are straightforward and some of the wrap-up achievements are a bit more challenging.

    Any of these acutally good? I think rating should be added to the list.

    I know I did but the achievements are bugged and don't pop, specifically the level 3 one for myself and various ones for others :(

    Even though i've done the game about 572 times haha!
    Ugh sorry that sucks. I had no issues. Maybe reinstall and try again?

    It does indeed, there ia a few of us who it is bugged for, apparently there was an update in June 2019 to fix it roll

    Can't tell if this just proves how pointless gamerscore is, if Microsoft are literally retarded for posting this after a giant gamerscore event, or if Xbox just gave a slimy "F" you to the people who bought easy games for said event lol
    Well, sales revenues go to the publishers, MS has a fee for managing the vending platform. So maybe Ratalaika & co. said no deals last week because they knew they could milk extra money during the Hall of Fame.
    Regarding gamerscore...that's why TA exists: TrueAchievement score and completion percentage should be the real drivers here.

    lol why???
    It is very well known to be buggy and cheevs will not pop and then you're screwed for completion cry
    Why are you screwed for completion? It sucks, but you can delete your save and run through it again with the walkthrough.
    I literally just completed it with no issues...not like its a big deal to do it over it if you have to only takes like 30 minutes to complete

    Wow at the comments about achievement "standards". There is such a thing as different leaderboards so you can "brag" in your different ways but shunning easy games is quite... Well uhmm... Weird I guess. Anyways here's the link.

    I can't even get Doodle God Evolution to get passed the start screen without freezing and crashing to the dashboard. Tried reinstalling and everything.

    I've got Hero Express and can't even get halfway through the first track. It's a 1000g game worth 1200ta so should be mega easy - am I missing something?

    Fearful Symmetry game is quite hard too.
