Help me find AWESOME action/adventure games that are short

15 replies 57 views Edited Dec 16, 2010

I like story driven action/adventure games that can be completed in 10 hours or less.  The only times I have to play PS3 games are friday and saturday nights for anywhere between 2-4 hours each night.  I have many other hobbies so I do not game every weekend. 

 

My 2 favorite story driven action / adventure games that Ive played are: Uncharted and COD MW2.  I was able to complete these games in reasonable times (1 or 2 weekends)  I also played through God of War III, and while it was enjoyable, I preferred both Uncharted and COD MW2 (single player campaign) to it.  Ive played my share of first person shooters over the years so I was surprised that I enjoyed MW2 as much as I did.  I definitely do not want to buy any more "war" themed first person shooters, but I may be convinced in playing some other themed first person shooter (like sci-fi or alien themed).

 

Online play should NOT be taken into account when suggesting game titles to me.  I want to find a short game with an incredible story to play over the holidays.

 

I dont care if the game you suggest is a new game, or an old PS3 game.  I actually like picking up older titles because you can always find them cheap.

The Best game I can think of to fit you situation is Dead Space. That game has an awsom story and is great to play alone in the dark.

Have you considered MGS4? Very story driven and alot of action and or adventure. I love MGS4 but have been more into the God of War Collection as of late. God of War Collection is fantastic as it has the 2 first games.

 

I know on easy these games can be completed in not time at all.

 

But based on your "Sci-Fi/Alien" themed specification. I agree with the other poster. Dead Space might fit your needs but it is a horror game as well, so be warned.

The games I would suggest are (in no particular order):

 

Enslaved: Oddessy To The West

Singularity

Dead Space

 

Each of these games can be completed in less than ten hours and are very enjoyable.

besides uncharted 2 i would have to say Resident Evil 5 would be a good choice. I liked the story because I've been a fan since they first came out.  It might take some time to get some good guns and beat it the first time through.  The first time I beat it took me about 20 hours but with the right kind of guns i beat it the second time in under 5 hours
