My comeback
So, y'all remember about 2.5 years ago, when the Genre Tagging system came out. Sandbox became Open World, games that had been previously decided to not be Sandbox were added, including games featuring discontinued achievements. I went from #1 to 20th or so, I asked for a more reasonable implementation of the system, and I was sworn at by TA staff for my troubles.

On top of all that, I started a long distance relationship, so for a long time the question was "Do I want to get on video chat with my girlfriend or do I want to play video games to regain points in a system that could just as well be arbitrarily changed again?" Easy answer.

So I went AWOL for a while there, and in that time it looks like

has been made unobtainable, and therefore my 100% completion is no more. Annoying, but I was getting over the whole "complete everything at any cost" thing anyway. Plus, I had always said that if I had to choose between 100% completion and #1 in Sandbox Open World, I'd choose the latter.

So here we fucking go.

Dead Rising 4 (Win 10) Achievements for 12,000 Open World TA but one unobtainable? Yes please. Spider-Man 3 Achievements for 2,500 easy points and 500 that will take me forever and I might skip? Sounds good. Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Achievements for 250 GS shy of a completion? Don't care. I'm coming back for my title and taking no prisoners.

Now, I do still want to maintain my high-90s completion, and that does mean completing the Bean Dive I started more than 4 years ago. I also want to just finish up the 360 catalogue in general, get it out of my life and move on. So the Open World 360 games I haven't played are:
