Games you feel compelled to go back and replay?


  • Banned

    I love me some Final Fantasy IX, Megaman Legends, Wind Waker, Dark Cloud 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

    Those are my comfort games. You know, like comfort food. Only in game form.



  • Doom every Christmas (although I don't get around to finishing it). Symphony of the Night every few years. The first Persona I've completed about 3 times, thinking about another run of that. Eagerly awaiting some sort of Bioshock collection to get released so I can run through those again. By far though, the game I always end up going back to is Final Fantasy Tactics. No matter what mood I'm in, diving into that game is always a memorable experience.



  • Do the Civilization games count? I almost want to say they shouldn't, but... :)

    I've purchased and beat A Link to the Past with the last two Wii consoles, because it was there and I still have more fun with that Zelda than a lot of others.



  • I fall into a Pokemon void every few years. It brings my backlog progress to a screeching halt for at least a few months. The first time it happened I built a complete loving Dex in Platinum. The second time was last year and I worked on breeding competitive Pokemon that I will never use because battling is too stressful. I still like to pretend like I'm the collector from the 2nd movie. I've got the most powerful Pokemon.



  • @benoit489 I"m playing through Pokemon Black for the hell of it. Probably my favorite generation.



  • At some point I need to replay Shenmue again, since that game deserves a yearly playthrough.



  • This year has been the year of Pokemon for me. Replayed Yellow, picked up Omega Sapphire, and replaying X right now. Man, so goooooood

    Mass Effect. It's the only game I replay over and over again.
    It's like a fave book or movie, I just want to experience the characters and story over again.

    I WANT to play that whole series again but when I try I just can't. "THIS ISN'T THE REAL SHEPARD! THIS IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED! THIS IS ALL WRONG!" =D

    Yeah I imagine that can be really hard after your "canon" run

    Yes. All of the yes. I've been holding off playing it lately as I'm hoping/waiting for a remaster before Shenmue III.

    I'd also add Bioshock Infinite, so glad they just announced they're coming to the new consoles.



  • Deadly Premonition. The story is engrossing and the weirdness of the game encapsulates that Twin Peaks vibe with a Japanese twist. About to try and do another run for that platinum trophy.



  • I always end up going back to some Pokemon Game, usually Gen 1 or 2, although I've been thinking of going back to Platinum sometime. I also always feel compelled to go back and play Kingdom Hearts and Zelda Games, whether I haven't gotten it 100%, done a 3 heart run, or just see some story elements again.



  • There's not really much in my collection that I can honestly say I won't ever go back and replay, it's why I keep everything. I can't think of anything too specific that I just can't seem to keep away from though. Maybe something like Space Channel 5: Parts 1 & 2, I guess I do have a tendency to throw those on a little more often than anything else.



  • I want to replay the whole main entries of the Assassin's Creed saga and make a critical analisys of it.



  • God, I wish I had the time to replay games with my massive backlog (first world problem)

    I'd love to go back and replay Suikoden I, II, III, and V. These are some of my favorite games ever. I've only played through the original multiple times, and I missed a few Stars of Destiny in II and V on my only playthroughs.

    Other than that, I'd like to replay Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, Dragon Age: Origins, and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (HD version that I bought and haven't opened).

    There's dozens more but I won't go into them.



  • Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodline.

    One of the first things I do whenever I get a new computer is install the damn thing so I can play it whenever the desire arises.

    I wanted to do the same for Kingdom Hearts, but then I remembered there's nothing to analyze because it's all being made up on the spot.



  • I replay Final Fantasy IX on the regular. I just finished disc 2 (well, "disc 2" since I'm playing the Steam version this time) on my latest replay.

    I'm also extremely compelled to replay Final Fantasy XII International right now, but I'm also torn, because part of me wants to wait until the PS4 remaster is released next year.



  • Banjo Kazooie, Mystical Ninja starring Goemon. Resident Evil, FF7, Goldeneye, ocarina of time. Take me back to that wonderful ps1/N64 era and happy childhood.



  • @Hero-of-Lime Splatoon. :p
