I honestly have no ida how you can do this
Well it depends if the game has some good/fun base controls and good level design, since all it really does is give you a reason to/reward for exploring every inch of the levels.

I have no idea how you found all the things in web of shadows thats one game i really couldn't be assed to do it in. Just way too many.

Prototype and AC2 are way more bearable.

Oddly, I never bothered with the collecting in Prototype. Can't quite remember why. But Web of Shadows was easy because those tokens were everywhere. You couldn't go 30 seconds without seeing one for most of the game. And once you got half of them I think the rest showed up on the minimap.

I did get everything for AC1 and AC2 as well, apart from one Templar I couldn't find in AC1.

I got everything in AC2 but I didn't bother with AC1.
If there's actually something you can unlock by collecting everything I'll probably put the time into doing it but collecting for the sake of collecting, like in AC1, just doesn't interest me.

Again, I don't even mind collecting just for the sake of it, as long as the game is well designed for collecting. I liked to climb around and stuff in AC1, and I played the game quite a lot (more than I played AC2), so it was natural to do the collecting.

Although, my biggest problem with AC1 was The Kingdom. I have no idea what the hell Ubisoft were thinking with that. It's a massive sprawling map that connects all the cities, that is bigger than each of the cities, is filled with as many collectibles as the cities, and yet served no fucking purpose at all. Nothing ever happened there. I don't think a single mission or important event took place in the Kingdom. I did get bored of collecting stuff there, because you had to go everywhere by horse and there was nothing fun to do.

I just finished the second stage and I had completely forgotten that come Sly 2 you had to do two levels before you beat the boss.

Rajan was annoying to deal with but after I got used to him I beat him pretty easily.

I just started the first game. Slightly annoyed that the cutscenes haven't been upped to HD. I know none of the other collections did it, but since in this game the scenes are all 2D artwork as opposed to fully rendered CG I figured they would be able to do it. They do look nice though.

Huh, you can shift the camera around while the game is paused. Was that possible in the PS2 version?

Also, I'm going to go for 100% on each game before I move onto the next.

I remember that level where you have to shoot the crabs being really hard, but I managed it first try this time.

One thing I forgot is that if you finish a time trial in Sly 1, you get an audio commentary track for that level.

I don't remember the Back Alley Heist level having this wide angle lens effect on the PS2. It's really weird.

I don't remember Muggshot being that fast either. Plus when you die you restart without your charms, so you die in one hit. Although it only took a couple of tries to get the pattern down and beat the boss without getting hit.

Well, I'm literally 50% through the first game now. Seems really short, although I must just remember a lot of it. I've been getting all the bottles on every level and it must have taken about 4 hours or so to reach 50% complete.

I did it the same way I did it on the PS2. You can just mash the correct button until it's passed, then mash the next one, and so on.

God damn it, I can't find the last two bottles on Flaming Temple of Flame.

The dying in one hit thing is annoying now that I'm on the final boss.

Oh well, finished the game. Took about 10 tries to get through the whole final area. Now all that's left is the Master Thief Sprints. I remember some of the being quite hard.

Forgot how inconsistent those time trials can be. You can finish some levels with 15+ seconds on the clock, and some levels with less than 1 second left on the clock. The hardest one is actually really early on as well. Finished with 0.2 seconds left.

Oh well, 100% done in 7 hours and 40 minutes. On to Sly 2.

I had forgotten some of the twists and turns in Sly 2. Making Bentley and Murray playable was nice too, although you still play mostly as Sly, which is also nice. Collecting the bottles is easy as pie as well. You'll likely see most of the just going about doing the missions, and they make a clinking noise so you'll know when one is near.

I've done the first 3 chapter 100%, and I think there's 8 or 9 in total, I can't remember. They each take about 1-2 hours as well. To put it in perspective, I played Sly 1 for 7 hours and 40 minutes and got 100%. So far I've played Sly 2 for 5 hours and 10 minutes and I'm 31% complete.

The Contessa stages are sapping my will to play Sly 2. I never liked them that much, but I don't recall them being this boring.

Finished Sly 2 after about 15 hours. That game felt too long. Maybe I'll end up liking Sly 3 more.
