| After picking up Final Fantasy X again the other day, I was thinking about how I used to replay games over and over again - but now I have some that I haven't even played through once. |
Which games do you return to over and over again, and why?
For me, it was the original Metroid. I probably finished that game 20-30 times. I tried to find everything on it. Back when I had it, I only had about 10 NES games, and this was my favorite so it ended up in the NES more than other stuff.
I've probably finished the original Legend of Zelda 5 or 6 times as well. I will still play that from time to time as a time waster.

| Oh, lots. But the biggie is probably Final Fantasy VI, which I've played so many times I've lost count. I've also gotten several playthroughs out of Lunar: Silver Star Story, and I just recently gave Mega Man X another go 'round. And I don't know if fighting games really count, but SFII and King of Fighters '97 are always good fun. |

| I bought Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and I don't even own an N64; it's just come up enough times that I've been able to borrow a buddy's n64, or there was one in the lounge at university, or other such situations. I've played that quite a few times. The Gameboy Zelda & Gameboy Kirby got a lot of times out of me as well, but that's because I had maybe 5 games for it (not that they're not great games). |

Dynasty Warriors, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and Master of Orion II get some play from time to time.

| Since I don't buy a lot of games because I just don't have all that much time to game and I personally am a big fan of epic RPG's, I have a tendency to replay the ones that I do buy. Of course, there are some favorites that I get out with some regularity. For example, I've finished Planescape: Torment 15 or 20 times. I've got a party wandering through the underdark in Baldur's Gate 2 for the umpteenth time. There's also Neverwinter Nights. I've only replayed the main game itself once, but I've probably downloaded and played through close to a hundred different modules. Then, there's Civ 3 and 4, which have consumed far too much of my life and my wife's life.|

If you discount things like Tetris and Katamari and sports games...
I once broke out FFVII a couple years ago just to see how it had held up.

I did it a lot more when I was younger. Now I have too many games, and not enough time to even finish the ones I haven't beat yet.

| Tecmo Super Bowl (either the NES version or the Genesis version, both are good) and Baseball Stars.|
I can continue playing those games forever but I can't make it through one quarter of a Madden game from 5 years ago. I really wish the next-gen developers would come up with *something* to add to the replay-ability factor in sports games. They just become so dated so quickly.
I think it has to do with the fact that every year we get a slightly varied ("improved") version of the game...almost like a patch, or a software upgrade. So playing Madden 99 on the N64 is like running Windows 95 or something. Maybe if TSB or Baseball Stars went through the same annual slight-upgrade back then (and through today) I wouldn't care for the originals so much.

| I've replayed every Squaresoft/SquareEnix RPG that I've owned. SNES titles got the most play since that was at my prime video gaming age (snowday marathons of Chrono Trigger!). Other similar games got play too (Link to the Past, Lufia 2), but nothing matches Square.|
I used to replay the hell out of wrestling games until they stopping being fun about a year ago.
For computer games: Might and Magic 4 & 5, the World of Xeen. I LOVED this game when I was in middle school, and probably played it 10 or 12 times with different parties. This past fall I found a CD-ROM copy on Craigslist and figured out how to get it running in XP using some program called DOS-Box. I played through twice, and it was just as excellent as I remembered, and I still remembered 95% of what do, where to do, and how to get lots of free gold.

| I like to play through Super Mario 2 frequently. It's probably my favorite of the Mario series...especially the version included in the Super Mario Allstars collection for the SNES.|
The hallmark of RTS games to me will be Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2. I love everything about that game...with exception of playing it online. Too many cheaters there.

| I've replayed Final Fantasy 7 and Chrono Trigger a bunch of times. RPGs are my favorite genre, but they take a lot of dedication and time, so I tend not to replay them. But I've beaten these 2 at least 5 times. Same with FF4 and FF6 come to think of it, and I am dying to play FF4A/FF6A.. so yeah, those 4 RPGs have incredible replay value.|
Oh crap, just remembered Dragon Warrior also, I've beaten that 10 times and tend to play through it once or twice a year. Same with FF Mystic Quest.
Non RPG wise.. Super mario Brothers, Super Mario Brothers 3, and Yo Noid.

| The games easiest for me to replay tend to be the fighters like King of Fighters XI or the Tekken games, since their playtime isn't all that long and they're meant to be replayable.
I haven't been much for replaying RPGs, because a lot of times I trail off and end up not finishing them in the first place. The last RPG I've played through more than once was the original Suikoden.
If my PS2 was still capable of playing Initial D Special Stage, I'd replay that game quite a lot, but now it just freezes up when it tries to load the game... (I think it has something to do with the slimline model)
I've been wanting to play Gitaroo-Man again lately, for some reason, too.
