Don't ignore games completely just cause they're long completions. Still plenty of easy points to get if you know where to look. For example, Risk is still a good 500 in maybe an hour just playing against yourself. That Inside My Radio game that was on sale is a solid 790 in maybe 2 hours.

And don't always believe the ratio either. More and more games are getting trials where you can pop a few achievements which always massively over-inflates the ratio like that new Kung Fu Panda game, which is still a massive grind for the completion but a fairly easy 5-600 just playing with 2 controllers. Another good example is No Time to Explain where you can pop a press start achievement in the trial. That one is worth a ridiculous 4600 TA and took me about 5 hrs to complete.

And this whole pre-loading business sounds awfully fishy. :P

There was someone on TA who did a little study of ratios for Xbox One games vs Xbox 360 games, and it seems to be almost universally true that ratios are higher on Xbox One. It's a weird phenomena.

Halo: MCC and Rare Replay are outliers, they have high ratios because of two factors, one is the sheer number of achievements, and the second is the sheer variety in the activities to unlock the achievements. Both are compilation games, and it's highly likely that a very random set of achievements will be unlocked first by a particular gamer, and there's no clear progression to unlock them all. It's comparable to The Orange Box though - 99 achievements, compilation of games. If TOB had 200 achievements, would the ratio be higher? Almost certainly. I think in the case of TOB though, the ratios are lower simply because of it's age. I expect Halo: MCC in particular will lose a lot of it's ratio over time; Rare Replay not so much, because I think people play their favourites and leave other games in the compilation untouched. We'll see.

For a game that was released on both 360 and X1, the ratios on the X1 version are also higher. I think this just signals that most people have indeed shifted to X1, and the only people playing the 360 versions either haven't upgraded yet, or are stacking the games (and therefore more likely to complete them).

Anyway. Ratios are interesting at the moment, and you need to be wary of putting too much stock into X1 ratios, or rather, you need to mentally adjust what the ratios actually mean because they aren't very comparable to the 360 ones, at least not yet.

I hear that every time someone pre-loads a game, a kitten dies. Who does that?

Also PC titles that have achievements tend to have higher ratios except for Project Spark. I noticed that there is a link for an Xbox 360 link on TA, but the publisher must have pulled the plug on a 360 version being released.

Can't say that I'm too surprised by that. Despite the ongoing support for the 360, many publishers are likely looking towards the Xbox One and other current generation consoles for maximizing profits.
