A bit of a weird question, I was wondering what video games are good to play in small chunks. I usually play PlayStation All-Stars and Dirt 3 when i have 15 mins to spare before going out or something but i got every trophy in PS All-Stars and completed all the content in Dirt 3( including DLC).

Any games that you guys could reccomend that would be suitable to play in short sessions?

Many of the older save anywhere first person shooters (quake, half life 1/2, doom, republic commando, Fear) all break up pretty well into short fight sequences. Aside from that, super meat boy / hotline miami / Mario U type games also work, although those are arguably better when you go for a longer sort of session.

Most games on the Vita are perfect for this and aren't limited to a genre or two. Unit 13, LBP:V, DJMAX, Dokuro, Wipeout, and AC:Liberation are a few from the top of my head. It also allows you to basically pause the game when you hit standby so you can continue at any time.

  • Wizorb
  • Arkham City (challenge rooms)
  • WipeOut (the racing game)
  • Lumines
  • Bejeweled
  • Skyrim
  • Trackmania Stadium (any really, but the Stadium beta is free to play for now)

Those are what I play in small chunks, besides All-Stars which you already talked about.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Since everything in that game is so intense, a single mission can eat like 20 minutes of your time and exhaust you for the day. I tend to do a couple missions a day.

Super Hexagon is the perfect small-chunk game. You'll destroy yourself trying to marathon that game.
