What single game have you re-played the most over the years?

Post by ncf1 » Tue May 30, 2017 4:10 pm

What game has occupied your time the most? What have you gone back to over and over: which single game, in your lifetime, has consumed the most of your playing time overall?

Can be single player, multi-player, handheld, console, arcade, computer, whatever. Any form of video game.

Going to be a toss up between Metal Gear Solid or Sonic 2, despite the latter not being my favourite sonic it was the one ive owned the longest hence the replays!

Soul Calibur, probably. One of the few fighting games to be great in single player and multiplayer.

Good topic. I was going to say Final Fantasy VII, but thinking about it that might not be true.

It might actually be Sonic 3 & Knuckles, or maybe even The Secret of Monkey Island.

It's one of the three, I couldn't say for sure which, though...

Mega Man 2. Probably replay it once every couple of months. Either that or the first Yakuza game which I've ended up replaying several times over the last few years.

just remember the hours clocked in on those Nintendo Game/Watches, I remember playing Fire Attack for countless hours, for months.

But for me it would be NBA 2K13. I've become fixated with Donkey Kong though and that might eventually take over. Strangely enough neither is my favourite game, that goes to Resident Evil 4, but playing time is less for that than the previously mentioned.

So that's interesting.. I'm wondering if its like that with others, if your favourite game's playing time is usurped by time spent on another or other games.

Such a goood question and I'm having a hard time answering. Maybe Fallout 3 (certainly the most recent)? But then I think about Gran Turismo (the first), or various SNES games?!
If I cheat and include all the time in the mission editor, then in 3-d crafting progs like 3DS-Max and photoshop, time spent watching tutorials for them, testing in game, time spent in forums and so on etc then it's easily Freespace 2.

Playing since 2001 and still going strong:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation ... War_Crisis

This is the true face of PC gaming - complex, punishing, mature games with seemingly endless re-playlablity and modding potential and a dedicated community that will fix games to work under modern systems even if the developer doesn't.

As for the most played Arcade or console style game, I'd say it was either Street Fighter II in it's various flavours or Mortal Kombat 2D series.
