The best short games that you can play in 6 hours or less

The best short games offer bitesize goodness

Pressed for time? Here are seven of our favorite short games...

What is Inside actually about? Industrialization? Amoral science? A comment on the illusion of agency in games. Regardless, you'll spend more time thinking about than actually playing this devilishly dark indie.

7. Inside

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

Just as hyper-stylized and uber-sexy as The Matrix, but you could play it, enjoy it, and complete it in a shorter time than it would take to watch the movie. A genius, time-bending shooter.

6. Superhot

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, PSVR, Switch

A short but not exactly breezy excursion through the afterlife; this 2D platformer manages to terrify and terrorize the player using nothing more than silhouettes and devious timing.

5. Limbo

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

This short and sensational interactive prison escape isn't one for lone wolves, as it's only playable in co-op. A bold, fiercely smart cult hit.

4. A Way Out

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

A brief and bewitching tour through a family home that's so varied, you'll gut fish as a king in a cannery one minute, and play through an homage to 1978's Halloween the next.

3. What Remains of Edith Finch

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

A completely wordless, deliberately cryptic adventure, and one with nary a hint of user interface in sight. Journey may only last a couple of hours, but its legacy will last a lifetime.

2. Journey

Platform(s): PS4, PC, iOS

A four hour, lightly interactive adventure set in the Wyoming wilderness. The results are as good as you’d expect from a story penned by the lead writer of Telltale’s The Walking Dead.

1. Firewatch

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch
