    "Well, this game does have the ability to have up to 100 players. It could be short. But I don't consider it gaming - it is a trivia game, not a game - game. And this link goes to the Playstation store. I need to go see if it is even available on Xbox One. "

    "The Jackbox party pack is the best way for me to connect with my friends and play games on the go. It allows me to play on my own phone while I'm on the bus and my friend can play while they're at work (don't tell their boss). We also enjoy the different games available so we don't get bored just playing the same game over and over again. The chatbox allows us to send messages and 'talk trash' to each while we play and allows us to stay connected. "

    "I adore Diablo games - for me there is no better stress release than hacking and slashing through dozens of monsters while picking up loads of cool sounding loot like Demonic Chestplate of Valorous Protection. And I guess if you have more willpower than I you could play in short gaming sessions. I tend to play for hours at a time, but most of the individual fights are short, and there are various save options (if you pick up the right items). Just don't get in a party trying to complete a large dungeon if you are strapped for time; your teammates will not appreciate you dropping out mid-run. "

    "This is a great game, and a must have for fans of the Rayman Series. They released it for the Xbox One roughly a year after its initial release on the older platforms. It's best for playing with friends, as it can support up to four players. The game was criticized for its short length, but it's perfect for those who are looking to have some short sessions playing with their friends."

    "Madden 18 is an amazing game to play with a group. Its offline mode allows you to play with up to 4 players. The great thing is that you can set the length of time on the game to ensure that the sessions remain short. Since Madden is a sports game there is a definitive end that ensures that your gaming experience doesn't continue on unless you want it to."
