    yeah, the brain games are quite simple and on the go
    definitely tetris. old classic that never gets old
    racing games are also good. did you try out speed racer yet?

    ojsinnerz, your avatar scares me. D: Sho-poke.

    Anyway, if you're good with keeping track of stuff going on (memory), Phoenix Wright would be good. You're not going to breeze through the game, but not paying attention to details won't make for an easy play.

    Any games, just close the lid when you can't play anymore.

    Warioware and Clubhouse games are good when you want to fit in 5minutes of gaming [​IMG]

    Picross DS is the perfect game for you. Games where you can save and load at any given point like an Advance Wars are what you're looking for.

    What are your tastes? Genres of choice? I'd hate to give you good game but completely against your tastes.

    Pocketnes and goomba. You can't beat old time classics.

    The DS tetris is a good time killer. I enjoy it. But it kinda gets boring after a few days, so beware of that.

    Picross DS & Planet Puzzle League are great to just drop in and out of.

    Drone Tactics might be a good choice. It's fun, and you can save whenever you want.

    Well, I won't recommend puzzle games for you. Heck, your brain is heavy enough with office problems, now you gotta solve a feakin' puzzle?!

    Try Worms Open Warfare 2, childish, yes but fun and quick, needs just 2-5 minutes per game

    How about Anno 1701? It's pretty fun and you can save anytime you want

    Ummm.... I'll tell you more later, apparently, I forgot
