In the past, we’ve taken our 3DSes on vacations, on public transport and to hospital waiting rooms because it’s so easy to pick up and drop games and put them into sleep mode on this tiny handheld device whenever it needs your attention .

These days, we’re more likely to carry a Nintendo Switch with us whenever we know there’s going to be a lot of downtime, and while the Switch isn’t quite as portable as the chocolate bar-sized 3DS, it can still fit in a bag or a Very Big pockets, if you’re lucky. Many games on Switch also slot in perfectly for 15 to 30 minutes of gameplay – so we’ve rounded up some of the best here!

It is worth noting that any A roguelike or puzzle game is good for short play, but we tried to keep it diverse, online multiplayer, story games, and even RPGs are great for short play. enjoy!
