Australia has a public holiday coming up. And while that's great for gatherings and having a good time with friends, sometimes you just want the day to yourself. That's a great situation for playing video games - but sometimes you want something that can be done and dusted in a single day.

Fortunately, there's plenty of great smaller titles that you can enjoy in a single sitting. So if you're looking for a game you can start and finish in a single day, here's 9 titles worth looking at.

One of the best features of Final Fantasy 15 is Prompto's photos. Every time you rest for the night, the game will show you a roll of photos from that day's adventures which you can save and share on social media. These randomly generated mementos are mostly unique to your particular game, giving it a lot of personality, and sometimes they're strikingly beautiful. But sometimes… sometimes they look like absolute arse.
