Good idea this.

OK easy and quick completions for me are...
Puzzle by Nikoli X Sudoko  - Win 8. You can complete it in the trial. Took me 2 hours.
Microsoft Solitaire and Microsoft Mahjong (both Win 8). Take about 30 mins each.
Worms - XBLA
CSI Hard Evidence - Retail
Harms Way - Free XBLA
Daytona USA - XBLA
Minecraft  - XBLA
Oblivion - Retail (with shivering isles DLC). Very easy but this one does take a fair amount of time.

I found RYSE: Son of Rome to be pretty easy.
The boring part is getting to level 100.

Eh, personally I don't think Shoot Many Robots is an easy 200G. You have to grind your way to level 50, there are 2 achievements that are dependent on random item drops, and 2 of the achievements basically require you to setup a boosting session (or to be exceedingly good at the game). To me, that's a lot of time to invest for full completion.

Minecraft, Keflings, King Kong, Avatar TBE, Worms, The Maw... those I'd consider easy. You basically get all the achievements in the course of a single play-through, which doesn't take a long time.

Agreed, I found myself to invest quite a bit of time to get the full completion and the rare drop thing really bothered me. I did enjoy the game but the last couple of levels, not so much. In fact, I hit level 50, got the achievement and died which put me back to level 49. Think I continued on? Nope, delete and move on.

I'd agree with the other ones you mentioned as well. Lost: Via Domus is pretty easy too. I've got to get going on some of my older games. I want to complete Condemned because people say it's easy but I think it'll require 2 playthroughs. Hopefully the levels aren't too long. I'll just follow the guide on TA.

I found Shoot Many Robots to be really easy. It took me about 7 hours to achieve the 200 G. Nothing 'grindy' there.

The walking dead and the wolf among us are a cakewalk from what I have heard!

Well this list is a great idea.
If I think of any I'll drop a suggestion.

On the 'shoot many robots' front. I've heard it isn't the hardest for achievement hunters. But for a casual gamer who just wants a fun easy completion it might proove a bit too boring and time consuming to go for. And as we are the 'CASUAL gaming collective' I think should be left off the list.

I really haven't had any mention any of these so can anyone confirm or deny this? :-)

Kinect Fun Labs stuff is definitely easy, but it's a question of whether you actually WANT to do them. For instance, Kinect Labs: Kinect Me (http://www.trueachievemen ... Me/achievements.htm) -- there are a total of 8 really easy achievements, 3 of which require you to share photos via the KinectShare site. I might go complete it (I have 3 of 8), but I really don't want to share photos at all.

Also, From what I read of the Sleep Dogs walkthrough and such, I don't think that one was particularly difficult. Just a matter of time. I suppose there are 2 categories in this area: "easy" versus "easy and quick". A game with relatively easy achievements, but which could take 20+ hours play time to complete, can be tough for casual play.

For instance, I probably only play 6 hours a week on average. So if I did nothing but play a single easy (but lengthy) game for the GS, it could take me a month or more to complete it. Whereas, something like NBA 2K6 or Avatar TBE, you can sit down and complete all achievements in a single play session.

I'm thinking of making a file in Google Docs and put a link down below. That way we could all put in what games we think are easy with an estimated completion time. Maybe under 10 hours would be one, under 25 hours, under 50 hours, 100 + hours... I know we all don't really track our game time as far as how much we play of a certain game but estimates would be fine.

Can always comb the Internet for options as well...

Perhaps hand pick the ones that are listed as full 1000.

Created a link to a document on the main menu under "Links" to a Google Spreadsheet. If anyone has any knowledge on completion times, please feel free to add them. Otherwise let me, Jamie or Ryan know and we'll take care of it.

Here's the link as well:

You'll have to add me as an editor (you have my email).

Just a quick run through the list... I know that:
Harm's Way has MP co-op and achievements (definitely under 10 hours)
Worms (the original arcade game) has MP co-op and 1 MP achievement (less than 10 hours)
Minecraft should be do-able in less than 10 hours... finding the wolf/wolves and having the materials to build the 500m rail line will be the toughest part, since you cannot get the achievements in a creative mode world.

Then again, now that I think about it, I do have a world pre-built where anyone whoever needed it could ride my existing rail (no wolves on my map sadly).
