Everyone loves feeling a true sense of accomplishment. There is nothing better than knowing you worked hard and made something good happen. That is exactly why Microsoft added achievements to their games so long ago. Having arbitrary points do not actually do anything other than serve as a reason to continue onward in a game, as ridiculous as that sounds. They let everyone else know that you did something in a game that is special.
However, when the Xbox 360 first launched, game developers didn’t really have an understanding of achievements, so they just kind of threw them in as an afterthought. For gamers, this means there are some games out there with incredibly easy to earn points. If you care about your achievements being hard-earned, then frankly, this isn’t the list for you, but if you are looking for some games with ridiculously easy points to win, then check out these out.
Eragon is kind of the exception in the case of many of these games because it has many achievements, 37 to be exact. Most of the games have just a couple of high point achievements, but don’t let the quantity of achievements discourage you, because they are obscenely easy.
All but one of the Xbox achievements are earned simply by completing the game on the hard difficulty setting. Don’t be fooled, “hard” is not hard at all. Since the game is a movie-based game the developers were trying to make it accessible for everyone and did not try to add much of a challenge. The last achievement is finding a whopping 18 hidden eggs throughout the game. They are certainly not that well hidden as finding them is not challenging. Even if for some reason you just cannot find those eggs, the game will still net an easy 900 points.
This is another game where all you have to do is beat the game, and you will earn all the achievements. It’s not a very long game either, so earning your 1,000 points here will not take a lot of time.
To make it even easier, you can enter the level unlock cheat code and unlock all but one of the achievements without doing any real legwork. Simply enter KKst0ry at the cheat screen and you will earn all but the last achievement.
If you want to earn the last achievement, which is for beating the game, then you have to play through every level. This means no level unlock cheats. You must play all the way through every mission, and watch the last cinematic.
This one is so easy it almost feels illegal. It is only five achievements, and it is completely plausible that you could earn all of them in one game of basketball.
All you need to do is set the AI on easy, and destroy them, and everything will fall into place for the achievements automatically. All you have to pay attention to is making sure one player gets 50 points and a triple double (a triple double is at least 10 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in a single game). The team achievements will fall into place naturally as long as you crush the other team.
The older sports games really seemed to bring the easy Xbox achievements, and this one is no exception. Madden 06 easy achievements will occur automatically as you play football. You will have to play in some of the various modes to get all the achievements, but none of them are hard to earn.
This game also features the largest individual achievement I have ever seen. If you play 30 years in franchise mode, you will get a massive 400 point achievement. This sounds hard, but fortunately, you can just simulate all of the games quickly and get your giant achievement.
So there you have it, 4,000 easy achievement points to help make your gamer score a little more respectable. Just don’t tell your friends how easy these achievements were, or they may respect you a little less. Keep in mind, you can get any of these games for incredibly cheap prices at the moment, so “earning” these points will not break the bank.
