    I'll pick Without Escape, 1000G in under 20 minutes seems worth for me

    The mushroom quest song haunts my dreams sometimes, so awful listening to that for one hour. I should’ve muted the tv

    Aborigenus and Mushroom Quest both have significant buggy problems with signing in. It only works part of the time, and even after removing consent and doing it again, it rarely works.

    If you ever want a fun drinking game, play She Sees Red and take a shot every time the insufferable main character makes a stupid face at the camera.

    Is there a way to search for games on here (in my library or gamepass) by estimated completion time?

    Some folks in the sale thread kept saying Guard Duty was “good” (whatever that means), is Guard Duty a genuinely good game? I don’t much care about quick completions but sometimes I need a genuinely good, low stakes, easy game to play.

    Yes - kind of - you can start with https://www.trueachievements.com/Xbox-Game-Pass/Games?order=...

    if you want to cross reference that with this list, then you can paste both into Excel and use formulas.

    I loved it. It's a point and click adventure game with a fantastic story that's very earnest.

    I, personally, consider She Sees Red to be the best bang for the buck. It’s the second least expensive and it’s interesting—both story and gameplay.

    TOTALLY. You'll be like "why is this thing shooting at me and why am I shooting at it?". It'll be worse than the time I watched Kickboxer 4 without seeing Kickboxer 3, I was SO lost.

    If those bundled games are such quick completions, why do they all have 2000+ TA scores?

    Because they have 2000 G each, as stated in the article. Gamerscore Inflation is real.

    I redownloaded Mushroom Quest today after seeing there was a title update last year, (after I got the original 1000G) and so far, even after trying many times, I cannot for the life of me get this to work right. Reinstalled, cleared the cache, signed in and out, etc. Revoking the app permission is the only thing that got me to actually play the game, but since I wasn't "signed in" after I gave the game access again, I wasn't unlocking any of the new achievements. And restarting the game literally puts me in a loading loop. Unreal.
