I kinda think the Madden achievements are gimped up. You can easily get all 1000 points just playing for a weekend. Whereas you could spend your entire life trying to beat Geo Wars or Hexic and never pot all 200 points... way to go EA... again.
Regardless, I hope companies come up with significantly HARDER achievements then "Get a first down". WOW. Tough one there! How about "Win the SuperBowl with EVERY NFL TEAM." That would be worth some replay value; especially the sucky teams.
