Generally the games a pretty bad, unless you are on a Virgin flight. Most of the other systems have games such as Tetris, while the Virgin planes have games such as Super Mario Brothers and other high quality games.

Has anyone ever actually played (or seen another passenger playing) the goofy tetris or tic-tac-toe games in the seatback entertainment systems? Aside from some brief experimentation on my first flight featuring the system the games have yielded zero entertainment value to me.
Then again, I see people pull out notebook computers just to play the regular Microsoft Windows Solitare. [img]/forums/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

singapore and cathay both have excellent in seat entertainment... their games aren't exactly exciting, but they do the job quite well in making time pass by quickly....

I played the games on Virgin for a while. The biggest problem was that we had a blabbermouth pilot, and the game would stop every time he wanted to hear himself talk.

The redeye to London is not the time to tell passengers "you can Greenland to our left"

Well, it won't be my first international flight, just the longest

Just made plans to go to HKG in March. My trip duration will be 23hr and 3mn. I hope I can find something to do for that long. Longest commercial flight in existence.

Donít worry dbaker, there will be pictures.
