Looking for a game that you can play for small amounts of time ( read topic).

Looking to get a new game or two. I was thinking about getting Skyrim but my friends that have it told me that it sucks you in and it is really hard to play for small amounts of time. I still want to get the game but right now I am thinking about getting it in the Summer.

Any way down to the topic, I was thinking of picking up a game or two that you can play for small amounts of time and if you want to longer periods of time.

Right now the only game that I have played that seems to fit this mold is Rayman Origins.

I was also thinking of getting MW 3 but every time I play it with a friend it is hard to play for small periods of time. So might either pass on this one or pick it up at a later time.

Finally the other games that I have been looking at are Metal Gear Solid Hd Collection and AC revelations. But concerning Revelations will probably pick this one up in the Summer time.

Any way what do u think about Metal Gear and this?

Any other suggestions?

dead rising 2 off the record and rayman are good choices
Best games ever made Metroid Prime, Killer7, FFX, Super Mario Galaxy and Enslaved

Metal Gear Solid is no good for small amounts of time, the story keeps you going and gets very crazy at points.

Something like Torchlight or Dungeon Defenders is good for small bits of play.

I'm not sure the genre's that you say you like fit with the games you can play for small amounts of time.

I am positive that the answer to your question lies in the XBox arcade, but without knowing your preferences it's hard to make a suggestion. Currently when I want to play for 10-30 minutes only I usually start up Magic 2012, but I have a plethora of options from the arcade.
Relax, it's just a game.

No, Skyrim is great because you can save at any time...somebody with an 11m old and a 22m old here...
