Day 8. What is a good RPG to play for sessions of 2hrs or less?

This is a tough one. A good RPG for a two hours or less session? What if I said: every RPG?

You might say, "No way mother fucker! One can't set up a Twilight:2000 game for two hours!"

But I disagree! What if your group of players are all veterans of whatever game you pick? Then the discussion changes I think and the answer is valid.

Sometimes we can only get together for two hours.

I admit that the intent of the question is more literal. So what is an RPG that I could stand up and play for two hours?

I'll steer clear of the hippie games and stay OSR or Old School rules. I might think a B/X variant, Mentzer or Moldvay. It would need a packaged scenario as well, so even something a heartbreaker like Heroes Against Darkness could work. But even then the execution expects some gaming familiarity.
