Reading a Max Payne 2 thread which included playing different endings got me thinking about replayability.  

I think the game I've replayed most was Parasite Eve 2 for the Playstion.
It had a nice dark story and three different endings based on how you played things out in the game.  It also had different modes of play(Normal,Scavenger,Nightmare) which each had its own bonuses and penalties rather than just simply ramping up monster presence.  You could also unlock better weapons and armour the higher your ending score was with each difficulty level.

I think I played it through from beginning to end 13 times, each time getting a whole new gaming experience.  Scavenger mode was the best challenge.  At some point I was wielding a gunblade too. :mrgreen:

Arcade: Street Fighter 2 (any edition) - at least 1000 times each
Console: Virtua Cop II Saturn - more than 1000 times; Tekken Tag Team PS2 5000 times or more

PC:  Civ 2 (over 200 times easy);
Moo2 (over 100 times easy);
BG (about 10 times - class/race combinations);
BG2 (about 20 times - class/race/expansion);
Diablo2 (10+ chars at 80+)...

How can I forget:

Quake2 DM: 1000 games easy
UT games: 2000 games easy
Q3A: 500 games easy
R6RS: 50-100 games easy

I guess the winner is UT!

I gotta say that Neuromancer from Interplay, Strike Force Terra Nova from Looking Glass, Thief 1 and 2 from Looking Glass, and the original Command and Conquer from EA.   I have a special place in my heart for companies in fiancial trouble I guess...(well, besides EA)

I can honestly say I have been gaming since about 1985, and I don't think I have ever actually "finished" a game.

So... the answer for me technically is None.

Now, if the question were which game have I spent the most time playing (even though never finishing it), then the answer would be the original Ghost Recon for the PC.

I am hoping Battlefield 2 is so ridiculously good though, that it takes over the #1 spot.

And that, my friends, is how you give a really long response to a question that could have been answered in two words.

Strike Force Terra Nova from Looking Glass

Glad someone else gives this game it's due.  So far ahead of it's time and so much fun and yet no one seemed to notice it. frown

I'd have to say I probably replayed HL1 the most.  I think I ran through it 6 times in a few weeks all told.

I'm not much of a game replayer though.  Occasionally I'll revisit one, but not too often.

Star Wars: Rebellion hold the title for me. Stop laughing. Okay, I'll wait.


I enjoyed the strategies of it, and it's long been my go-to game for when I'm flat-out tired of gaming. I'll play that for a few hours, or days depending on the burnout, and then I'm fine again.

Max Payne 2 with Cinema Mod 1.6 is rapidly closing the gap though. Running into a room and mini-gunning everything in sight while in shoot-dodge and listening to some rockin' music reserved for movie trailers is awesome. biggrin

lots of time also in Starcraft, Warcraft 2, Diablo 1 and 2, and Unreal Tournament.  But nothing compares to the time I put into Quake 1, both single player (lotsa great user maps) and multiplayer.

The four I've probably played the most times that I've finished each time:
-Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1) ~  Unbelievably good game. My top 2D platformer of all time - uncountable
-River City Ransom (NES) (always multiplayer) - uncountable
-XCOM (PC) - uncountable
-Blaster Master (NES) - uncountable


These are honorable mentions:
-Star Control 2 (PC) - 8 times
-Fallout 1,2 (PC) - around 10 each ~ (in fact I think I'll start another round tomorrow!)
-Master of Orion 1,2 (PC) - uncountable
-Master of Magic (PC) - uncountable
-CIV series (PC) - uncountable
-Wing Commander series (PC) - 5 or 6 times each
-Heroes of Might and Magic 1-3 (PC) - uncountable
-Planet's Edge (PC) - 4 times
-Gran Turismo 2 (PS) - uncountable
-Monster Rancher series (PS and PS2) - uncountable
-Final Fantasy Tactics (PS) (never finished) - 10 times
-Mario 64 (N64) - 15 times
-Zelda (NES) - 10 times
-Kid Icarus (NES) - 6 times
-Wizards and Warriors (NES) - 9 times
-Bionic Commando (NES) - 10 times
-Trojan (NES) - 8 times
-Strider (NES) - 6 times
-RC Pro Am (NES) - uncountable
-Mike Tyson's Punch-Out (NES) - 12 times
-Warp Factor (Apple II) - uncountable
-Phantasie Series (Apple II) - uncountable
-Wizards Crown (Apple II) - uncountable
-Legacy of the Ancients (C64)  (played a ton of times but never finished) - 20 times
-Eamon Adventures (Apple II) (anyone remember these?) - uncountable

I better stop now...

Everything is approximate and uncountable is over 20 or 25 times.
These prolly dont count:
Tactical Ops
Counter Strike: Source

Ok so that may be a little much to mention here BUT... It sure seems like games can't keep my attention as well as they used to...  They just don't make em like they used to.

And now you've forced me to get emulators... Right this second.

 Wow, and I thought I replayed stuff alot... :wink:

 Both max paynes I replayed 3 times I believe. Half-life 1 twice I think, and HL2 almost through my 2nd playthrough of it. The original halo on xbox 2 or 3 times, between co-op and just me playing. Prince of persia:sot, once myself and once w/ my wife. I`m sure I will play RE4 once more at least! I know there`s more, I just can`t think of them right now.

If you count it: Diablo 2. Can't count the number of level 40+ characters I took at least 3/4 way through Hell difficulty.  Even now, I running a Level 60 Javazon to try and get my first Nightmare character.

X-Com - only god knows
Fallout 2 - at least 10 times.  Currently have a pure melee Slayer character.
(If you count them as one) Angband/Zangband - roughly one million characters give or take a few.  Currently have a Tome++ polymath character going.

Probably Doom with the story, mods and multiplayer (one on one with a null modem cable) there's no way I could count.  I was coming out of a MUD addiction when Doom hit.

I liked Rebellion.  It was just heartbreaking compared to what it could have been.  The tactical battles just screamed for the ability for a small group of plucky rebel to be able to take on (or at least seriously hurt) a larger imperial fleet.  That just intensified the feeling that the end game was a joke.  I can't even recall a major set back once victory was in sight.  The early and middle game was great though.

Wow.  Lots of good titles here.  It brings to memory alot of other games I played and played again.

Some more:

Daggerfall(finished once,replayed to no end countless times)
Morrowind/Tribunal/Bloodmoon(3 times each at least)
BlasterMaster(NES)-many
Hired Guns(Amiga)-10+
Knights of Legend(C64)LOTS but never finished
Times of Lore(C64)-many
Double Dragon 2(NES 30+)
Civilization 1(Amiga)
FF7(10+)
RTW(9)

I didn't get a PC until around the time Morrowind came out so I missed the glory days of games like Fallout and BG. Though I now own them I don't think I'll ever have time to play them what with all the games coming out. :cry:

I forgot the really obvious. I`ve played counterstrike for 5 or 6 years!!! I seriously have invested some sick amount of time into this game. I used to play it for hours on end. Hours and hours. I did put it down for the most part for a while there, but right when cs:s came out, I started all over again. I don`t play as much as I have in the past, but I`m starting to get addicted again.

No joke. Now when I play it takes me a few turns to remember the controls, but once I do I've got factories spitting out fleets left and right. The enemy side usually has one massive fleet that they swat you with within the first 300 turns, so if you can avoid that or at least do some serious damage to it then you're in the clear. Try playing on Hard on the Largest galaxy and it takes forever to overrun every planet. By that point, I'll have all my Jedi (Light or Dark) trained up and hunting for the other side's special players. I had Lando killed out from under me once when I wasn't looking, sneaky Imp bastards. biggrin I repaid them by slaughtering the entire Imp fleet and actively killing off their special players. biggrin

Civ 2 / 3
Freespace 2
Total Annihilation and Expansions
HoMM 3 and Expansions
MOO 2
BG2
Diablo 2
Starcraft
Warcraft 3 and Expansion
Quake 3

These are probably the only games that have been consistently reinstalled and replayed on my machine multiple times.  I could probably stop buying games, create an image with just these installed, and happily rotate through them for the rest of my game playing life.  (might get a shooter jones every once in a while).

In terms of total hours played, though, Bards Tale 1, 2 and 3 take the cake.  Played those for hundreds of hours on my Apple 2e in my parents basement for most of junior high.

Its a toss up between the original (and only imo) Tribes, Battlefield 1942 and Natural Selection for HL. Seems that any game with a linear path, be it story or tech trees, just get stale for me quick with that been there, done that feeling. Emergent gameplay is what I dig, and its a tragedy its offered mostly in twitch based games.

Deus Ex and Thief II. Played through the missions at least five times each. I love games that feature large maps, so each time you play you find something new and interesting that you missed before.

I'd love to see sequels to these games that aren't hampered by map size (consolitis). I'll probably play Thief 3 again but the first time through I felt like I had seen everything (you can't even jump into the water to explore down there), so the desire to replay isn't as strong.
