You've obviously never played Tiger Woods. Hardest gamer points on the 360 period.
Very True, I've got a friend who plays nothing but that game and Geo-Wars and he hasn't earned a single achievement in Tiger.
I think 2K sports is more a culprit of easy to earn GP then EA is. NHL and NBA I've heard the full 1000 can be earned in 1 game.
Also King Kong is one of the easiest and it's not an EA game either.
I don't really think you can blame the company so much as the division or the dev team... while MOST 2K sports game have stupid easy achievements I'm playing through Amped 3 right now and they're pretty fair with what they give out. it will probably take me a few weeks and some honing of my skills to earn the full 1000.
It'd be nice if MS setup some guidelines for achievements like
-minimum of 15 achievement, maximum of 45
-should encourage the gamer to explore all of the different features and options in the game
-should range in difficultly so that only hardcore players can earn the full 1000, yet beginners can still earn a few and average/casual players can earn at least 500
-full 1000 should not be earned by simply completing story mode on the standard difficulty
-if the game offers multiplayer there should be multiplayer based achievement or achievements that require in part, playing in a multiplayer setting.
^ I think the games that do those things have the best spread of achievements where you feel like you actually accomplished something and got your $$s worth out of the game when you earn all the points.
