When I did this, I simmed EVERY season. Be prepared for ultimate boredom and it takes at least four hours to complete.
It does not have to be done in one session and you can save your progress (credit goes to MissJaded for this info).
HexrapperCount on it taking even longer than four hours in total, I just played some music and kept simming it while playing DS/using the computer, definitely incredibly boring so have something to do while you're simming.

RAVIOLICAPONIYou dont have to do it in one sitting. I would do a few years then save, then do another few years a couple days later and save.

MantraPoloSo... boring...
Posted by MantraPolo on 13 Feb 10 at 20:05
SashamorningYeah, but Ravioli, then you have to actually come BACK and do it later. :-p

It's been a long time since I did this, and I don't have the game anymore, but I seem to remember something about using a rubber band on the stick or the button or something to help speed this along. Dumb, but it's a rather dumb achievement from the days when they couldn't be creative with their achievements.

Leo AscendentThat's why its worth 400, just be glad it doesn't take after dead rising, 20 points, everything.

LvxThis... Was the ultimate boredom, I did my homework, watches TV and cleaned my room. By the time that was done, 4 hours later, I got it... That 400 G really does put up for the boredom though. :p

xLILESxMan that sucked!

willow veone of the worst grinds in all the games i've played. takes forever, but the 400 gamerscore is worth the boredom and unceasing button mashing.

RigggedyRektI was doing this last night and fell asleep, hope it auto-saves.
Posted by RigggedyRekt on 19 Apr 11 at 15:06
BrasshandeAn unbelievably dull grind, but probably just about worth the grief for the massive 400GS you get once you make it through. The end justifies the means, but only just

justinman114I HAD THIS GAME ON GAMECUBE AND DID 30 SEASONS LEGIT. DIDN'T SIMULATE A SINGLE GAME, 5 MINUTE QUARTERS, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (EVEN THOUGH I'M A PATS FAN :P). SO PISSED I DIDN'T DO IT ON XBOX! 400GS!!!!!!!

ShummellI went out to my local liquor store grabbed my favorite bottle popped the game in started simming pulled out my laptop watched MXC (the greatest show ever) and had myself a good time just checking on on my sim every now and then. I didnt find it as bad as everyone seems to be complaining about it like it was the worst thing they have ever done.
Posted by Shummell on 10 Jan 13 at 04:22
ShummellAlso I thought it was hilarious but Tom Caughlin got fired every year in my game lol poor guy

AHGregI was able to watch 2 episodes of Mythbusters, 2 episodes of South Park, and a Minecraft Lets Play until I got the achievement.

UnsungGhostYeah it's definitely a good time to get achievements on your phone or computer.
Posted by UnsungGhost on 09 Apr 13 at 20:04
A BatwomanGot it watched all Transformers movies until then.

Also you can save your progress and come back to it if you got other things to do just thought I'd point that out.
