Easiest Xbox Achievement Lists from January 2019 - 3,000 Gamerscore in 2 Hours

By Mark Delaney, 17 days ago
It was a year ago that we began compiling these easy gamerscore lists for our community. If you want to catch up on the last year of super simple achievement lists, bookmark our hub right here. As for the past 31 days, the Xbox store was not as generous with its number of titles doling out painless gamerscore boosts, but it was, in fact, the most generous of any month since we started the feature in terms of average completion time. With a whopping three games that can be completed in under two hours combined and another that will only take you one to two hours, this is definitely the fastest collection of games we've seen in any month to date.

TRAX - Build it, Race it

TRAX - Build it, Race it

Price: $9.99
Completion Time: Under 1 hour

Remember Scalextric from a few months ago, the universally panned toy car racing game that wasn't available in North America? Well, this is that, renamed and now available in that continent. I've never heard anyone say the game is good, but the speed of the completion means some simply won't care. To each their own!

The Grand Tour Game - Easy Game of the Month

The Grand Tour Game

Price: $14.99
Completion Time: 6-8 Hours, not including free weekly DLC updates

As the header states above, completionists who like to chase DLC achievements should be warned that The Grand Tour series tie-in game will be receiving free weekly updates that coincide with the Amazon series of the same name. If you don't mind that, you'll be happy to know players are liking it quite a bit more than the critical consensus, which has the game sitting around a 50 on OpenCritic. it wins our Easy Game of the Month because even though it's the longest completion this time, it's still pretty easy and also happens to be the only one not considered to be quite bad as a video game.

Some publishers make these lists as often as we collate them. Sometimes You is one such company. Virtually everything they've released onto Xbox can be completed in under just a few hours, some even in just a few minutes. Here's this month's entry. Need we say more?

Heroes Trials

Price: $5.99
Completion Time: Under 1 Hour

And here's the other publisher that hands out gamerscore like business cards at E3. Ratalaika Games is famous among achievement hunting communities like ours for their simple lists that can be done in less time than it takes you to install the games sometimes. What a generous month this is, huh?

JackQuest: Tale of the Sword

JackQuest: Tale of the Sword

Price: $9.99
Completion Time: 1-2 Hours

Rounding out this month's shorter but more generous list is JackQuest, a 2D platformer which harkens back to games of years long past. If you like that sort of thing, it seems, according to site ratings, JackQuest isn't terrible, but it's probably not going to stick with you long after the two hours max it takes you to polish off the 1,000 gamerscore.

As always, if you think we missed any easy lists from January, let us know! We'll see you at the end of February for our next edition. Will it be as gamerscore-friendly as January?
