    Not sure if its been mentioned, but I found Subnautica to be a amazing game. The graphics are decent for what the game is trying to be. The game is a sandbox, exploration, survival game set on an alien planet and you basically explore the ocean. It has a story to help provide narrative and is found through exploration and listening/reading the various lore items you find. It allows you to save at anytime which I think is important if you are only able to play for short periods of time.

    Plus the sound track is rather good and you might just find yourself doing nothing while listening to it.

    If "oldness" isn't a factor... Portal and Portal2 are very easy to get into and are pretty long. Graphics? You don't need much for this game (low end card is fine). Play is enjoyable.

    Have you ever played a heroes game? If so you know what to expect. They aren't exactly complex and the combat is always what you make of them, the stories are simplistic as well. They are just simple good mindless fun that you can plug in an thrash stuff for a bit and then go out. It's hit or miss, some people love them and other people do not.

    Sniper Elite 4 is pretty good and looks really nice graphically

    Battlefield Hardline - purpose built to be like an episodic TV series @ about 45 min per nightly session.

    Ghost Recon Wildlands - in solo mode w/ the 3 man AI crew - it's easy play 30-40 minute sessions.
    Once you open co-op mode, you will be doomed to play for at least 2-4 hours & laugh hysterically.

    Wildlands is good alone, its awesome with friends. The stupid crap you end up doing in that game is nothing short of hilarious.

    If you want some graphic and some atmosphere, along with relatively short missions I'd suggest
    any of the Metro series.
    You can get Metro 2033 Redux and LastLight Redux for a package on a Steam Sale for less than 20 bucks usually.......right now they are 20 each
    Greenmangaming has both Redux for 30 dollars right now.

    The redux (remastered) graphics are really well done.
    The games are superb.

    The newest is Metro Exodus, graphically awesome, 49.99 on the EpicGames store.
