You've just finished yet another 30+ hour open-world adventure game. It's been a real journey. And now, the thought of starting yet another one of these sweeping, epic trudges seems like a bit of a drag.

So... you go for a palate cleanser game!

These small experiences are great little snippets of gaming sorbet that are quick to finish and enjoyable to boot - the perfect foil to your enormous-game-fatigue.

So, what's your favourite little palate cleaner game? Maybe you've played a few that did they job and want to recommend them to others, or maybe you always have that little game in your back pocket you always seem to return to when you need a little one-off change!

Burnout Paradise - Online free burning, showing off, and sometimes even helping people get some of their challenges done.

Oh yeah, wreck plenty of s*** along the way too.
Don't judge me, monkey.

DDM on a GBA emulator or Gundam Breaker.
Sometimes something simple, like Abzu, or Race The Sun.
