Which Easy Gamerscore Games Are Actually Worth Playing?

Great question! As is often the case, fans of narrative adventures are going to have the best time with this week's quick achievement lists. The Gardens Between is genuinely excellent as well as being simple enough to complete. Truberbrook isn't the paciest adventure out there, but its analogue animation style is genuinely enthralling and makes the achievement hunt pretty to look at. Nevermind and The Town of Light are both a reasonably interesting adventures that tackle some heavy aspects of mental health. Fans of Artifex Mundi hidden-object puzzling might want to check out My Brother Rabbit – it's a slight aesthetic detour for the publisher, but it's similar in its gameplay. There's also AER, which is more of an aerial sandbox platformer than a narrative adventure, but it has an interesting if vague story attached to it.

Beyond thoughtful narrative adventuring, there's a couple of other options that aren't too terrible. Sonic Fighters is a totally mindless fighting game, but it's fun enough for the handful of minutes it'll take you to complete. Finally, there's Maize. It might be one of the dumbest first person adventures on the market, but it's playable — and if you like to laugh at really dumb things, as I do, it stays mindlessly amusing enough to get in and get out with your 1000 gamerscore. (It's worth noting that some have had trouble unlocking the speed-run achievement. Thanks to True Marvellous for pointing this out.)
