    Whoever wrote that Never Alone could be completed in an hour must have been on drugs that slowed down time, took like 3-4. The guy that listed the shortest games...I completed Sonic The Fighters in 6 or 7 minutes, also NCAA March Madness 09 is faster than the 2K6s.

    rocking23nf said:Brothers is a terrible terrible game, never understood why it got so much love, worst controls ever, a story that I really could care less about, I actually considered it punishment to finish all the achievements, I didn't even finish the story, I got the last achievement and deleted it.You sound salty as fuck; you want Punishment? Try playing Superman 64 or if that's too old for you try Leisure Suit Lary Box office bust and you'll play with some clunky ass shitty controls.

    Brothers was a grey area game for me. I didn't mind it, but I wouldn't buy it again.

    I loved Child of Light.

    I never had any outrageous issues with the Brothers controls or the pace of the brothers or getting them to work together. Any challenges found there are part of the mechanic; which was the point of the game. It was very smooth for me just took some getting used to and some ambidextrous tekkers. Loved this game. paid for it too.

    OT: I feel this is a somewhat modern list considering the comments here.

    Shocked to learn that Arcade games tend to be shorter than full retails.

    Lmao.. Some of you complain and cry like little girls, for no reason at all.

    Thanks for sharing this list - And thanks to all others that commented more "short" games to give me ideas on fast completions toast
    A simple bad habit will mar an otherwise flawless character, as a single ink drop soils the pure white page.

    Really wish Contrast made this list. One of my most enjoyable puzzle/platformers on the ONE, easily completed in 3-4 hours, great visuals, voices etc. Limbo was great as well, it just sucks you in. Thanks for not including lococycle...that game really sucked.

    I think my top five would be:

    5. Child of Light
    4. Portal
    3. Dust: An Elysian Tale
    2. Bastion
    1. Limbo

    I'd probably give Brothers- A Tale of Two Sons an honorable mention. It was an enjoyable game, but had a few issues.
