The few things I recall about Arkham Asylum is somehow coming across the "April fools" package from Joker and it coincidentally actually being April 1st. I do see a bunch of oddly unlocked achievements and all I know is I had a lot of issues making achievements actually unlock and saving and re-loading and Googling for help. I solved it somehow. I can lock everything if you want.

I think I used a walkthrough for Legend of Grimrock so I kind of shot through the game, although I didn't get any of the harder achievements. I still remember wanting to come back to the game some day to get the last achievements, I think it's legit.

I don't know about Darksiders. I do have memories of it, but it's all gameplay. A chest I was proud of finding on my first run-through and trying hard to learn combos. I don't know why it's 11 hours, I was sure I spent a long time and used guide for collectibles I missed. Oh that reminds me, that game did (does?) have issues with Steam and achievements. Perhaps something to do with that? I can lock it if need be.

I'm completely blanking on Deus Ex - Missing link. I don't know. Can lock if you want.

Bioshock Remastered. That was the third time I've 100% it, twice before for the non-remastered version. Well, 100% the non-remastered version by doing everything I knew of. I don't recall any cheating, and I know I wouldn't need it either.

Tomb Raider was the second time I played it, first time was at a friend's house where we 100% the SP. Quite a while later IIRC I finally got it myself and did the same. I didn't bother with the multiplayer achievements which are what really makes the 100% take forever.

Most likely followed a guide for Deus Ex - Human Revolution. I believe you can get all achievements in a single playthrough so I likely opted for that from the start.
Arkham has a weird big cluster at the beginning - in your case of repeated past SAM usage, better to be conservative and relock I think.
Grimlock looks definitely cheated because you have certain reward achievements without the connected "enter/exit that secret zone" achievement. Maybe items were spawned in or something. Please relock.
Darksiders does have some Steam weirdness, so not too big a deal on this. Please relock if you remember cheating.
Missing Link is almost speedrun level timing, yeah best to relock.
Bioshock - sounds fine.
Tomb raider - appears cheated because you improperly have A Survivor is Born and No Stone Left Unturned at the same second. Recommending relock, might have been trainer usage.

Alright, when I got some time to download the games (to delete cloud saves and what not) and fix these things I'll relock:
Arkham Asylum

Legend of Grimrock - honestly I really don't think it's cheated and I certainly didn't spawn anything into the game. I haven't unlocked any achievements where I'm missing locked achievements that are prerequisites as far as I can see as not all secrets or iron doors have treasures behind them, if any? In the end I'm the one with the memory issues, so better safe than sorry.

Deus Ex - Missing Link

In Tomb Raider it's possible to unlock "A Survivor Is Born" and "No Stone Left Unturned" at the same time. If you have gathered everything you can, the very last collectible is a journal entry you get when you finish the game. Many miss collectibles in an area you can't fast travel to called Cliffside Bunker, so they have to go back and get them after finishing the game because they find out after the achievement doesn't pop. I remember going back to Cliffside Bunker, although I found out about this before finishing the game. So even though I did go back to collect those collectibles it was before getting the final journal entry. That's why they both popped at the same time. I used AStats' guides and Google to refresh my memory on all this.

Once I've relocked everything/the above is sorted I'll update the appeal on AStats. Is that alright?

Yeah no worries - let me know here once all is updated as we have discussed. It's easy to cross-post over to AStats at the end.

I will check more about Tomb Raider in the meantime.

Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition, Legend of Grimrock and Deus Ex - Missing Link have all been locked and made sure their achievements won't immediately re-unlock when starting the games or when creating new saves.

Alright, looks good to me. Please be aware of the rules into the future and don't be afraid to ask question about what is allowed or not. Approved.
