Top 5 games that can be beaten in one sitting

1 of 7

Games take up a lot of time. Anyone who has played a JRPG or a Bethesda game before can definitely vouch for that.

In order to beat some of these campaigns, it can take 10s of hours - and in some cases even 100s. In preparation for Fallout 4, which will assuredly be a 200+ hour game, I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of games on the shorter side of the spectrum.

What people consider to be a "short game" is relative depending on what type of games they usually play. Some people say that the Uncharted games are very short, but I find them to be the perfect length. Any longer and I would probably get fatigue from the nonstop action.

For this slideshow, we're talking about games that can be beaten in one sitting. To make this list, the game must have an enclosed experience, meaning that there is a story with a beginning, middle, and end. Most iOS or arcade games that can go on perpetually don't count. I have set the maximum time limit to beat the game at 5 hours.
