Time Wasting / Queue Waiting Games

Hi All

Just after a few games for time wasting / queue waiting?

Like if I'm waiting for my wife and kids to get ready to go out (and I'm already ready), or waiting for a mate to come over, but mostly if I'm waiting in LoL queue or other multiplayer queue for example.

Criteria:
- Little to no resources used to play (so I can leave going when actually gaming)
- Can be online or downloadable or anything really as long as it opens quick and can get into quick
- Can be old or new, I find some old GoG games are great for this
- Basically any genre, except maybe FPS or something too intense, I guess strategy/puzzle/sim would be better

Would be great to build a list of suitable games for those moments when you don't have time to fully game but want something to past the time.

Cheers

A Nintendo with a couple Mario games is perfect for this. The games were designed to fill the time between train station stops in Japan so they last around 5 minutes each level or round.

My current time sink for when I have 5-15 minutes to kill and want to play something is Morrowind on my phone. Fun to load up, play for a few minutes, then quick save and exit.

Inside the side scroller is a quick game like this. The distance between auto-saves is usually short.
