What's your quick game?

Post by dste » Fri May 03, 2013 8:35 pm

As in the game that you play when you don't have much time to spare but fancy some gaming.

Mine is definitely Pro Evo 6 for the 360 when I only have a spare ten mins odd. Managed to get up to the 2025 season just from playing a match or two every now and then over the past couple of years.

Pacman on my phone. It's a great timewaster on the bus or when I'm waiting for stuff at work to load up.

Champ Manager 3 or 01/02. I always have saves running, I either go back to some of my 20+ years games or start a new one. Best thing is you can go off and do stuff while your playing.

Streetfighter 2 - the broken one on the GBA - its exact name escapes me right now. It stays in my towel cupboard in an SP for sit down bathroom moments. Responsible for many a 30 minute poo time!.

I've got a 10 month old son, so quick games are all I know!!

My Vita is always knocking about so a few games of Mortal Kombat are nice, but mostly I'll play a game on my ipad because its always there. Fruit ninja, Mame, Raiden etc.

On the rare chance I turn my Xbox on, I usually have a quick go at Skate3. A perfect ten spare minutes game.

Ridge Racer V gets a lot of quick plays from time to time as does Super SF2 on the SNES.

Trackmania 2: Stadium

Jump in, race on crazy tracks. Make a mistake and hit Delete on the keyboard and re-start the track without having to wait for everyone else to finish. Such a fantastic game :D

Has to be a cartridge game to maximise gaming time with minimal loading time.
Super Mario Kart on SNES. Just doing time trials. Usually Mario Circuit 1 and 2.

Great call. I've both those games on DS plus the Taito spinner controller which is compatible with them... as well as the PSP version of the first game. Haven't played them for ages so with that reminder I shall do so again soon. :D
