Just because a game is short, doesn't mean that it's bad. Here are some of the best games that can be beat in one sitting.
Great to see Until Dawn at number 2, I guess Supermassive games hit the right note with that game. I would say though that the game is a little too long for one sitting. 8-9hrs is a long sitting, I this I did it in 3 sittings iirc.
Yeah, was about to say... I've heard from people who have completed it in 8 hours and not much sooner on their first run. Seems like a kinda long game to play in one sitting.
I did it in one sitting. It was amazing. Took about 7-8 hours I think. It's no different than having a Star Wars or LOTR marathon haha.
I did it in one sitting. Started at 7pm, finished at 4am on my first play through. Took a couple short breaks in there. Didn't even realize it got so late. Guess it just depends on how long your gaming sessions are. My second trophy run through took about another 8 hours, and did it over 2 days, with a strategic save about halfway through.
Every COD and Battlefield game.
any game you can beat in pne sitting is a rental nothing more. i own the snes games on that list and played the arcade games when the price drops but none of those games are worth purchasing to me. all solid rentals though.
Gee, I wish I had a place to rent Mega Man 2 and SMB 3. This comment reminds me of the phrase, "I only watch movies once, so I never buy them." To each their own, I guess.
You are making the often incorrect assumption that people treat games like throwaway TV shows. Many gamers want to replay games for extra content and different perspectives, or new game+ and difficulty increases, as well as the trophy hunters. If I only play a game once, it probably wasn't very good in the first place.
Dead Rising was designed to be finished in exactly 6 hours, it was made this way as it was made to be played through a few times in order to see everything. Lots of endings and special events etc.
Finishing this game on your first play through doesn't mean you're done with the game. Particularly in this genre. Full plat will probably take about 20 hours...if you use a guide. Probably much longer if you try to do it without help.
Witcher 3 One very long sitting https://c1.staticflickr.com...
lol now that's funny
unfortunately, i dont have time to finish any game in one sitting. i bought until dawn when it launched and only finished it yesterday
I finished Until Dawn in one weekend, best 60 bucks i've ever spent recently.
Recently, Pneuma: Breath of Life Very cool adventure/puzzle game Edit: No Portal?
This list would be way better if it didn't include so many classics. I was under the impression it was 15 newer games that took only one sitting to beat. Obviously, Megaman, Super Mario, and Starfox 64 only took one sitting to beat...back then most adventure games only took a couple of hours to beat in the first place!
Starfox 64 was such a great game.
Agreed. This would have been a much better list if it had just been top 10 modern titles that could be beaten in one sitting. Older titles from the 8 or 16 bit era don't really count because most games from that era were short with RPGs and lengthy adventure titles such as the Zelda series being notable exceptions. Also, I hate the format of this site.
I'd like to meet the people who beat Megaman in one sitting on their first play through. Articles like this, or at least some people using it to talk crap about a game, do kind of make it seems that it can be done on your first play through. The order went through that pretty hard.
you could beat almost any game in one sitting
I would also offer 'the Swapper' into consideration for a list like this. Much like Brothers, the heart of the story was entwined with the control scheme/game mechanics. Short but sweet, excellent puzzles and thought provoking ending. Additionally, I'd put Klonoa: Door to Phantomile in there. Beautiful game, with the perfect amount of platforming.
