What game have played through to the end more than once?


May 11th 2013


Ep 71: Hello Computer

You know that great feeling of achievement, (and sometimes relief) when those end credits start scrolling slowly up the screen. Then six months later you experience a random moment of nostalgia that results in you cracking open that dusty box once more. Thinking "ah just a quick go" which ends up with you getting hooked once more. Well that has happened to me on numerous occasions.

My most played through game is the first Tomb Raider. I played it through twice on the PS1, then also the rebooted version on the PSP. Just writing about it now makes me want to have just a quick go.

Sly 2: Band of Thieves , played and loved it on the PS2 and now that I own the HD trilogy on PS3 I've played it a few times more. Love that series , its a close tie between that and Ratchet and Clank for my favourite Playstation franchise

Not many… Bioshock about 3 times, not Bioshock 2 but I did replay the Minerva's Den story just before Infinite released. FFVII I've definitely done a couple of times, The above mentioned Ratchet & Clank (the second one), the first Dead Space, though I think that was New Game plus – does that count? When I do go back to a game, I don't necessarily finish it. I've got a right at the end of it replay of ME2 to finish off at some point.

Half life 2 is the only game I've completed twice. I've not really got the patience to play a game where I know teh story and have worked out the puzzles but Gordon was just too exceptional

Loads of games.


Mostly Nintendo.


I've replayed through most of the Metroids at least twice.  Some of the Zelda's more than three times.


Advance Wars 1 and 2, Resident Evil 4, Pikmin, Fire Emblem GBA, Golden Sun 1 & 2 all at least twice.


I've played Mass Effect through nearly three times.


I've probably forgotten loads, but then there's all the games that you just keep playing, like the Animal Crossings and Monster Hunters of the world. Unite and take over. wink


Yep, I do love a replay.

I must have completed mario64 about 4 times on the n64 and then once again on pc emulator then again on wii.

Plus I'm sure I completed goldeneye a few times too.

Was at uni during n64 days and daily drinking/gaming sessions used to beat attending lectures. If you could 'complete' champ manager then that would be about 100 times too.

Im actually partial to revisiting games and playing them through, mainly owng to the lack of financial backing for my habit and my lack of motivation to get my arse in gear at times.  However, the games that realy stand out for me are, Goldeneye, Ocarina of time, Gos of War 1, 2, 3, and Ascension,  and my own personla hour tampon, Dark Souls, Demon Souls…  I know ive played through Dark souls around six times, sadly, but its one of those gmes where your forced to replay to revisit the epic boss batles, Demon Souls is comparable.  I dread to think how many litteral days ive sunk into those two games.


I actually really enjoy replaying ames i enjoyed, its like wallowing in the smell of last nights sex!!!

MGS series, Resident evil 4, FFVIII, Theme Hospital and Crash Bandicoot, Ocarina of time, Links awakening, A Link to the past, Dead Rising, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Does Tekken count? If so then Tekken 2 and 3 about 70 times each, Mario Bros 1 2 3.

 I think I could go on a lot here but the biggest theme I can see is I'm a sucker for reissues of classic games like the MGS platinum collection or the PSone store even Mario All Stars on the SNES.

Lots of games, but probably the classic point and click adventures keep me coming back even though I know the puzzle solutions.


I've played Day of the Tentacle at least once a year for as long as I can remember.

Like lucien21, for me it's all about the classic point & click adventures. I've just recently finished playing through Beneath a Steel Sky, this time on the phone whilst commuting. Mostly, though, it's the Lucasarts classics I go back to – I must have played through the original Secret of Monkey Island at least 4 or 5 times.

My flatmates and I also went through and completed GT3 twice, but that's a different kind of deal… smile

Have to agree with the Secret of Monkey Island, I'm actually playing through that again now to mop up some of the achievements smile))

Psycho Fox, Wonderboy 3: The Dragons Trap, Kungfu Kid, Shinobi and Quartet all on the Master system, Played to death and completed each one lots and lots of times. Although that might be due to a lack of new games…

More recently I have replayed the Halo Games over and over and over again (but not 4, not even bothered to go back for a legendary run)  I still go back to Star wars Battlefront 2 and I am moist at the prospect of a new one on the next gen.


I don't think that it's a story that keeps me going back to a game, although it helps, I think it's more the game play or if it has good co-op.

Me too, especially with the different objectives on different difficulty levels.

Definitely remember playing through Super Star Wars again and again, as well as Starwing and then Lylat Wars on the N64 (Starfox for our overseas cousins). 

More recently, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Mass Effect have been fully played through twice, and I never usually replay games now. I have a ton of games I want to replay, but never get round to…

Well it seems that many of you are afflicted with the same psychic disposition as myself. Its good to know I'm not alone and therefore will continue to allow myself those random moments of nostalgia, culminating in hours of replay funness.

Pretty much only Plants Vs Zombies, I'm not very good at completing games.


I did a few more on older systems, ie golden eye, super mario world, mickey mouse castle of illusion.

But now days I tend to play more multiplayer games then I do single player

Ep 98: Wave 'em up

I used to a lot more before, but there are so many games coming out these days and I don't tend to replay many. The only one I can think of this generation is Borderlands 2, and that's mainly because you're meant to. Oh, and Heavy Rain, for the achievements. I did 50 Flights of Lovin' a few times, which probably doesn't count. I still don't 'get it', incidentally.

I've re-completed a lot of graphic adventures many times over, Monkey Island 1-3, Day of the Tentacle, Sam 'n' Max, Loom, Beneath a Steel Sky, Toonstruck. I've done FFVII three times. I think there were plenty of other old snes/nes/Amiga games which were short enough to replay over and over. Stuff like Home Alone, which probably lasts all of about 15 mins total.
