    Would be nice to have a "highest rated" or "favorite" games of the recent sales too, but I understand this is an achievement hunting site first and foremost. Oh well.
    We do! There is a TA team picks article based on the most-recent sale that goes live every Thursday. Admittedly, I don't think we've had one for a couple of weeks though due to staff being off but there should be one this week!

    Ohhhh you know thinking about it I might have seen one of those before.

    Looking forward to the next one then! I think I’m over quick shovelware games already (even though I never actually played any, I’ve bought a few)

    What about Kill It With Fire? It's $3.74 and has a 4-5 hour completion estimate, with a walkthrough.
    It may be a 4-5 hour completion, but with a 2.0 ratio, it’s not considered easy, compared to the rest of these.
    It's as easy as several games on this list, the ratio is inflated because its in game pass.
    Don't know if they've fixed it but I tried it on GP and nope'd out straight away when I found out there was no way to invert the camera.

    IMO, being unable to invert the camera is hardly a reason to call a game hard. If that's honestly the only issue, then my original question still stands.
    This is what my life has come too.

    What's the point of playing visual novels and skipping everything? You're ruining a whole genre with some decent titles.
    Quick achievements.

    Yeah gonna agree with this one. It's a very not-difficult game. There are some collectible achievements but they're very simple and there's lots of great tutorials. It's a 4-5hr completion, which is quick imo.

    If possible in future updates, could we get the Achievement score available for each game included on these tables?. A game that offers 4000G for maybe £1-2 pounds more than a 1000G game is better value overall but without clicking each title one by one there's no way of checking what gamerscore is on offer.
    It's more than just a game, it's a passion.

    72 in total...so many easy games!shock

    72 games listed (I guess 71 now?) and there's still more on sale. On top of Kill It With Fire, The Wolf Among Us, as well as the entire Batman Telltale series is also on sale ($3.74 for Wolf Among Us and $7.49 for BOTH telltale Batman games, with all episodes). Don't know why they weren't included, they're not particularly long (max 8-10 hours for tWAU), and not remotely hard. They're also, dare I say, not bad to play (watch?) at all.

    Also, Through the Woods doesn't seem all that taxing from the guides I was able to find.
    This is what my life has come too.
