PermalinkGTASC Quicky of the Week*: ARCADE GAME SERIES 3-in-1 Pack
Galaga, Pac-Man, Dig Dug
Enjoyment Level: Low-mid
Difficulty: Mid
No unobtainables or glitched achievements
Currently 75% off for 2$

Three classic arcade games with their own separate achievement lists.
Choose which game you want to play and go to options and set your lives to the maximum amount and enable round or level select.
Take a look at the respective achievement lists to figure out what the maximum level you have to reach and get there. You should get most of the achievements along the way.
You can get most achievements in one game in around two hours but it will probably take you an hour or two more if you want a completion. Galaga is the most challenging and least enjoyable off the three games.
The TA rate will be around 500 an hour unless you get stuck going after a specific achievement.

*Know your ABC, X can be tricky, X marks the spot in Shuffle Party which is free on the Windows Store

PermalinkGTASC Quicky of the Week*: Rare Replay
A 30 game collection featuring mostly outdated games and a few gems
Enjoyment level: Low-High
Difficulty: Mid
No unobtainables but many achievements can be slow to unlock

This massive and popular collection is an enormous completion which will take many hundreds of hours to complete. The nonlinear nature of the collection means that most of the not very popular(good) games have a very inflated ratio that certainly does not match the effort to obtain them.
For the fastest score in this collection you can start with the playlists and snapshot feature.
These snippets of gameplay from the older titles yield a hefty score for time it takes to complete them. The 6 playlists alone can give you around 1000 TA in less than an hour. 150 more if you can complete one without losing a life.
Completing every snapshot for a game yields around 150TA. Most of these can be done in 15 minutes per game. 16 games features these snapshots, estimating 2400 TA in 4 hours.
You will pick up a few bonus achievements along the way for collecting stamps and even more can be unlocked by starting up and closing some extra features.
Bonus: If you are going for some really high ratios Blast corps and Jet Force Gemini are incredibly inflated. They are not short games but also not difficult.

*Get that team ratio above 4.0!

PermalinkGTASC Quicky Of The Week*: The Escapists: The Walking Dead
Retrofitted prison break game turned not zombie zombie survival game
Enjoyment level: Mid-High
Difficulty: Mid
No unobtainables or glitched achievements

While the entire game and its 1250 GS worth 3826 TA can be completed in around 10 hours the really quick score can be found in the survival mode added with a title update.
The survival mode can be completed in 2 hours for 250GS and 1037 TA.
If you are new to the game I’d recommend running through the first tutorial level before tackling the survival mode. Detailed strategies are available on TA.

*Go for 5K TA!

PermalinkGTASC Quicky Of The Week*: In Between
Platformer about a terminally ill man coming to terms with his slow and agonizing death.
Enjoyment level: Sad-mid
Difficulty: Mid-high
No unobtainables but some glitchy achievements.

This game can be completed in a few hours but can be quite difficult which could add a considerable amount of playtime. TA estimates the completion at 5-6 hours but completion time estimates varies wildly.
While easy to find, use a guide to avoid missing any collectibles. If you manage to unlock the glitchy achievements and don’t get stuck on any of the levels you can earn 1359 TA in 3 hours.

*Double feature; Sad and sadder

PermalinkGTASC Quicky Of The Week*: Fragments of Him
Stroll playing game about love, loss and prejudice.
Enjoyment level: Sad-mid
Difficulty: Very easy completion
No unobtainables or glitched achievements.

This 2 hour long walking simulator requires very little effort to complete and the few missable achievements are easily mopped up with the chapter select feature.
A mature walking simulator about the death of a loved one. Mature as in the serious and reflective. Not sexy violent fun time.
A completion worth a whooping 1027 TA can be yours in under 3 hours.

*Double feature; Sad and sadder
