    Best airplane table games

    Brave Rats is usually what my wife and I play on a plane. You need very little space. 2player only, though. A typical game only lasts about 4minutes so you could keep rotating.

    Loads of people already said this, but it'd be a crime not to get Celeste if you're interested in it.

    Celeste is worth every penny three times over. Just buy it.

    Is Rain World good

    "It's not for everyone" to the highest degree.

    Is Rain World good

    I do think it's a genuinely good game. It's butt-clenchingly tense in the best way, at points. But I found myself stuck banging my head against a wall trying to progress and gave up, in the end (though I still haven't ruled out returning at some point). The systems involved seem very clever, but are also very opaque. If you like doing a lot of experimentation, you'll probably love this aspect of the game.

    It's hard as nails. It's my favourite game that I just can't get into. There's a lot to love, but in terms of hand-holding, it makes Dark Souls look like a nurturing mother.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Which character are you using? As a general recovery tip: if you're finding that people are guarding you from getting back, mix up how you get back. You have several options to help you return (your double jump, up+b, air dodge and extra options depending on character), but if you approach the same way every time, you're predictable and easy to guard against. Also, vary your get up options from the ledge, for the same reasons (you can jump up, attack up, drop and jump or just do a normal get-up).

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    A few things: Ness feels so damn good in this game, especially with the new dramatic finish on PK Thunder 2. Is Piranha Plant a preorder bonus? Did anyone who ordered through Simply Games get a code? Are rllmuk lobbies for this a thing yet? Because if not, let's make it a thing.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    If I remember correctly, you barely get a reward for the third trial at all (other than the satisfaction of completing it).

    Death's Gambit. Everything was Souls.

    For anyone who played Salt and Sanctuary, how does this game compare? I loved it and I'd love something in a similar vein. Even if it's quite different tonally.

    Recommend me 'git gud' games!

    Celeste. Absolutely Celeste. Not only is it an absolute banger and one of the finest platformers to ever exist, it absolutely fits into the perseverance mindset theme you are looking for. There are parts that feel rock solid at first, especially if you lean into the harder challenges the game has to offer, but it's very rewarding when you finally string it all together. It also has very quick respawns and most of the challenges come in small chunks. It's surprisingly unfrustrating* for such a "git gud" game. *Probably not a real word
