I've gone fairly quickly through some short games lately.
The first, on the PS3, was another game I got for free on PS Plus, Amplitude. It's kinda like Guitar Hero but with a ship that goes along each track, and when you perfect a certain section, that track goes away for a while allowing you to concentrate on other tracks. If you're really good you can get it down to only having to focus on one track at a time. Pretty trippy graphics. It's a fun game, but hard. I could only beat it on the easiest difficulty without getting overwhelmed with so many button presses.
Then I took a "console break" and am on Steam/PC for a while. The first game I played was Dropsy, a pixelated point-and-click adventure/puzzle game starring a demented clown that just wants to hug people, and so you have to solve their problems to let you hug them. No words are used at all in the game, only pictures, which I feel hurts the story a bit. Then again, it is a WEIRD story... overall fun, though some unexpected semi-mature content (nothing remotely "M-rated", though).
Then I played a VERY brief game called Super Blue Boy Planet on the PC. It was free, and it was about a 30-minute long basic platformer. Nothing special.
