I just S-Ranked my first 360 game!

It's not that I hadn't S-Ranked a game before, but they had always been on PC, on either GFWL or Steam. Dead Rising: Case Zero is my first console S-Rank, and I'm damn proud of it. I finally feel like I'm playing in the "next gen"... which would be "current gen", I guess :P 
 
What about you, GiantBomb? Which was your first S-Rank ever?

I'm not sure what my first one was. Bioshock maybe?

Not counting the Doritos Game... 
 
Darksiders, followed by Case Zero! 
 
Almost done with Fallout 3 on the PC with 1450/1550, though if I finish it people are going to assume I did "Add Achievement 1" etc and so I'm tempted to leave it at that...

Posted by Arbie

Well done! ^ ^
 
I think my first was AC2.

Never done it before. I tried to do it once but I got bored.

Darksiders, that's a can of hurt I'm saving for a special day when I feel particularly melancholic hehe. As for the Fallout 3 stuff, they can look at the dates they were gained, so shouldn't be a problem except for the occational dumb ass. 
 
@OP; Costume Quest, actually, which is odd since I've been playing 360 games since its launch.

Viva Pinata baby, Viva Pinata.

Posted by MysteriousBob

Case 0 practically hands you an S-rank. Same with the Ultimate Megadrive Collection.

Posted by spiceninja

Congrats. I've currently S-Ranked 11 games.

Posted by DarkHeroZark

That dumb ass Avatar: The Last Airbender game.

Posted by MoonlightMoth

My first S-rank was Tomb Raider: Underworld, which I was quite proud with as the speed runs in Lara's Shadow were a pain to get.

Posted by SSully

Well my first platinum trophy was for Batman Arkham asylum. I have like 2 more, but i honestly cannot remember the games.

I think my first S-Rank was the Eragon game, followed not long after by the original Condemned.
 
I came really close with a few XBLA games before that, though. Namely Alien Hominid, Aegis Wing and Dig Dug. I'm only missing one achievement in each of those.

Posted by supermike6

Mine was Shadow Complex, and then Borderlands (which I soon lost because of Mad Moxxi).

Posted by Gargantuan

I've S-ranked two games. I got the original 1000 achievement points in Halo 3 and I got 1000 points in Halo: Reach

Posted by Jack268

Still haven't got one, only need to grind to 50 in Shadow Complex and I'll be done with that though.

Posted by me3639

Congrats, got my first one(finally) this year with Darksiders.

Posted by Kermity

My only S-rank is for 1 vs 100.  I was worried at one point that they would add more achievements and I would lose the rank, but looks like I'm keeping that one forever.
Edited by GunstarRed

Viva Pinata was my first 1000/1000, Sonic The Hedgehog was my first 200/200, Crackdown was my first 1250 after they upped the limit and Borderlands is my only truly full S-rank at 1750. 
 
Did it with many games before the achievments though... all of the PS2 Ratchets for instance
Posted by iam3green

never got a S rank on the 360. i'm pretty close on forza 3, i think it's like 3 more achievements. 
 
i do have the doritos games but i don't count them as they are only like 15 of them for 200 achievement points. i'm counting ones that are 1,000 ones.

Posted by Blueman

My one and only S-rank was Borderlands on PS3. I'm only one trophy away from Platinum on iNfamous, i just need to find one more blast shard.

Posted by dankempster

My only S-Rank at present is Fallout 3 on the 360. However, I am currently in the process of pushing for another in Just Cause 2. Four Achievements left to crack, but they're all incredibly annoying grindy ones. I guess time will tell whether or not I have the patience and stamina. 
 
Congrats on your first S-Rank, by the way. It's pretty rewarding to be in the club, so good on you.

Posted by XenoNick

My guess would be COD2. Then COD4

Posted by HellBrendy

Lego indiana Jones. Then Lego Batman

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Mass Effect. I even bought all the DLC (one of which was terrible) to maintain it. Then I S-Ranked Shadow Complex, and s-ranked ME 2, but haven't gotten all the DLC, so I'll need to do that to re-s-rank it. I plan on s-ranking Deadly Premonition one day. 

Posted by Sjupp

I am like 1 or 2 achievements away from S-rank in Halo 3, Halo ODST and Halo Reach.. FFUUU

Ya never forget your first one! Mine was Mass Effect 2.
Posted by Titl

I think my first S-rank was Modern Warfare 2.  which was rather difficult, since i am very bad at that game.

Posted by Malakhii

Mine was fight Night Round 3, not saying much since it was a super easy S-rank. 

Posted by GlenTennis

My first was Battlefield: 1943.

Posted by Swoxx

Achievements are still pretty busted for me, only half my points are there. I believe my first one was NHL 07

Posted by ___pocalypse

Costume Quest is my only S-Rank. I'm just not dedicated enough to try for every game I play on 360. DS games I complete 100% pretty often, though.

Posted by Hockeymask27

Cod4?/NHL07 not sure which was first.

Posted by Sjosz

First one for me was Mass Effect.
Sitting at 14 or 15 now.

Posted by ShadowVirus

Congrats on your first S-rank. My first S-rank was Bomberman: Live which I'm very impressed with, it's probably impossible to do now seen as no one plays it online. My first retail S-rank was Smackdown vs Raw! 2009. not particularly that hard, but super grindy and incredibly boring.  

I also came close to S-ranking Mass Effect 2, need to do it on the hardest difficulty but can't be bothered with it, plus don't have the DLC for it.

Posted by Butano

First one I believe was either Fight Night: Round 3 or King Kong. Those were such a joke.

Posted by ValeYard

I'm probably most 'proud' of my S-Ranks in Geometry Wars 1 and 2 and Halo 3. Took quite a long time, but getting the last achievements was probably the most satisfying experience of my gaming life. My last Halo 3 achievable was a double kill with the Spartan Laser, I thought I'd never manage it after I kept missing the second person over and over again. If only my Giant Bomb achievables weren't still busted...

FABLE II PUB GAMES MOTHERFUCKER.

Posted by Redbullet685

The 4 S ranks I have are XBLA games 
List

  1. Doritos game
  2. NHL Arcade
  3. Monday Night Combat
  4. Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
Posted by bobafettjm

I think it was either Jewel Quest or Uno.

Posted by CptChiken

Nice job, my first S rank was Assassins creed, I had tonsillitis, and i would have done anything to get my mind off the sore throat.... even getting all those damn flags.

My first S-Rank on the 360 was Need for Speed: Most Wanted. The Second game I got for the system. The first one was Perfect Dark Zero... aaand I don't think I'll ever finish that :P

Edited by buzz_clik

My first one was with BioShock, but then they added the extra one and I don't got that. My last one was... uh, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard.
 
The one I'm proudest of, though, is COD4. Took a few hours to get that last one, that's for sure.

I've got one more to go! Stupid 100 rings with Tails in Sonic 3...

My first 360 s-rank was Shadow Complex and for non xbla games the first would be Mass Effect 2.

Posted by Jayzilla

Super Meat Boy was my first S-Rank. Took me about 2 hours. :p 

Posted by hexx462

 Congrats!
 
Mass Effect 2 for me. I keep telling myself I'll S-Rank a game but I tend to move on to a new game once I'm done with it. My personal rule for achievements is to only do them if I'm having fun. Running around collecting feathers in AC2 or playing the so-so MP in RDR doesn't fall into that category, otherwise I'd have several S-Ranks.

Posted by TheSilentTruth

I have Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. I should play that game and get my first S rank as well.

Posted by Bloodgraiv3

My first S rank would be in Crash bandicoot 3. 
Posted by joeshock

My only S rank on a full retail game is Fallout 3.
