You love your Xbox, you really do. But unlike many of your friends you’ve put trivial things, like work, ahead of your play time. And thusly, despite a decent collection of big name titles, your game score lingers in the low thousands. Every time you log on Xbox Live you’re shamed by your friends with scores of 5 digits. You can still redeem yourself. With a few weekends and a Blockbusters membership card, and the following helpful hints:

Avoid Xbox Live Arcade TitlesXbox live

Xbox Live Arcade titles can be crazy fun with games like “Portal” and “Braid” ranking among some of the best games of all time. However, if time is of the essence in boosting your score, stick to big title releases. Arcade titles only offer 200G, where as regular disc-based titles offer 1000G. Add to that that often times Arcade games often have incredibly time-consuming and/or difficult achievements (See “Megaman 9” and “Feeding Frenzy.”)

Sports Games Like “NHL 2K6″ are a Points Bonanza.NHL 2K6 xbox 360

Sports titles are never very difficult to master and they’re also almost always multi-player. Even better: they’re usually fairly cheap to buy, because new titles come out to frequently. Buy a case of beer, call a friend over and spend a Saturday afternoon racking points.
