    I have up on gaming years ago, but back in the day I didn't play anything repeatedly. If I finished a game I never went back to it, or more often I just lost interest.....and never went back to it...

    I still play Unreal Tournament 2k4 almost daily.

    Uncharted is fun.

    Used to play Birth of the Federation all the time, 'til I lost the disc. :(

    Played Super Mario Bros. over & over on the NES when I was a kid.

    Replayed Batman: Arkham Asylum a few times, and Arkham City, but just went through Arkham Origins once.

    The first reboot for Tomb Raider from a couple of years back, played it two or three times.

    And the Lego games, especially Batman & Star Wars. I've played those on the PS2 (or 3? whichever my nephews had), Wii, and xbox 360.

    I've really been burning up Dr. Mario lately. The first nineteen levels (on medium), I had no problem with. Level 20, on the other hand, my god, it's been giving me hell for two weeks. The lowest I got was ten viruses, but then I start overthinking things and fuck everything up :mad:

    I love the old SNES RPGs Final Fantasy III, Breath of Fire II, and Crono Trigger. I know the plotlines by heart, but they're still fun to play.

    I also love SNES Civilization, Gemfire, and Populous

    great... I have not posted here I play this game for the last 5 years during that time they started having a convention just for the game http://warframe.com it is free there is nothing in the game you can't get or do that would require money of course lots of work to meet the goals in the game and the easy way out of doing things is to ... pay /// I pay half the time trading objects is a way to get ingame money *the objects you farm it is like you farm for weapons and the parts to make said weapons but yes they update new parts faster then I play. ;0

    The Sims. Actually, it's more likely to be Sims 2, though I still do own original Sims and play that sometimes. I tried Sims 3 but didn't quite love it as much, so I stick to the earlier versions. You can simply never get bored with this game, every time you come back you can pick up where you left off or start a completely new life.

    And on the subject of simulations, I repeatedly come back to Theme Hospital. This was a hospital simulation game from 1999 that had a great sense of humor. All of the maladies are ridiculous, things like Bloaty Head (cured by popping their heads and reinflating them) or Heaped Piles (caused by "standing around by water coolers" and the patient feels like "he/she is sitting on a bag of marbles"). You have to hire staff, some of which are terribly incompetent, build diagnosis rooms, labs, operating rooms, etc., and deal with emergencies and epidemics. You progress through 10 levels of managing progressively more chaotic hospitals. I've never actually beat the game, it gets quite difficult near the end. I think it was a British game, based on the accents and spellings.

    Oregon Trail (as in the older versions, where you can die, there's no medicine to help you and the grave stones!) - this game is a nice stress reliever
    Number and Word Munchers - love these two, even though at times I suck at them :lol:, but they help me to take my mind off of the real world for awhile
    Sims 4 - I love to play this one now and then
    Slime Rancher - this one is pretty fun too
    Skyrim (Switch) - gotta love a good hack and slash game
    Diablo 3 (PS3, but hoping to get the complete version for the Switch someday) - same as Skyrim
    Almost any Pokémon game - just a fun time waster
    Xenoblade Chronicles 3D - same as Skyrim and Diablo 3
    Tetris DS - love this game
    Any Animal Crossing game - just a fun and relaxing game
    Stardew Valley - same as above

    Over the last week or two I've gone back to the playing the mobile game Cooking Craze on my tablet.
    I'm shocked that no one has done a Bob's Burgers version of a cooking game like this, it just seems so obvious.

    I'm the sort of gamer that tends to stick with one or two games at a time that I play until I'm ready to move onto something new. Sometimes that means I just loose interest midway through and never go back, other times it means I play the same game over and over again.

    For example, I've played through most of the Mass Effect and Dragon Age games an embarrassing amount of times. Seriously, for ME 1 & 2 I think it must be at least twelve playthroughs a piece, though only (I?) five or so for ME3. Five of so for DAO, three or four for DA2 and I'm about at the 1/2 and 2/3rds mark for my 3rd & 4th playthough of DAI. Only one for Andromeda though, not surprisingly. I'm not sure if SWTOR counts since it's an MMO, but still I've gotten about 8 characters up to level 70, which is a lot of repeat gameplay, one way or another.

    Back in the day I played an ungodly amount of TF2 (before ti went f2p) and L4D 1 & 2 (until the community and playerbase turned toxic.)

    Also done multiple playthroughs of the 'Saints Row' games, 'Beyond Good and Evil' at least four times, 'Psychonauts' at least three times, and of course just about every old Lucasarts adventure game more times than I can count.

    Uh, I think I've got even more playthroughs of Mass Effect 1-3 than that. They don't all follow on as I've used the generator on a few just to try various outcomes. One of my mates had been playing it on xbox at another of their friends and recommended the first game to me. I saw it and got hooked. (Due to the other friend getting rid of the console, he hadn't even got to the Citadel)

    For Origins and DA2, about seven (completed) and a couple of other mess about ones.

    Inquisition and Andromeda I've fallen short on though with only one complete run and a partial start on a second run (Arrived at Haven on DAI, and just about to hit the first planet on Andromeda). One day, I'll actually get back to them, but I want to finish other games first. I'm probably more likely to start another playthrough of one of the earlier series even though I did enjoy both DAI and Drom.

    For TOR, I've got three characters started, but only one who's even made it off their first world:(

    DUN DUN! You died of dysentery! I got do do some software testing for Oregon Trail 3 when I worked for Learning Company (they owned MECC then). OT2 was selling well and of course everyone still loves the old apple and dos versions. I still think Oregon Trail 2 is the best of them. It looks goofy with the mouth animation but there is a lot of detail and randomization, hidden events, built into the game. 3 was kind of a mess.

    I like playing strategy games over and over. Until my ps2 finally died I would occasionally revisit Dynasty Tactics.

    My brainless game to return to is Sims 4 now and then.

    Don't let my "two complete plus two partial" playthroughs on DAI fool you. According to Origin I've put 965 hours into that game. If I didn't faff around so much with exploring and obsessing over the CC I'd probably have a playthrough on every class speciality and romance plot done. Seriously, it took me like four or five hours to recreate my main Hawk!
    I don't know when you last played it, but these day levelling up characters is a breeze and you can pretty much skip most of the planetary missions and just stick to the class storylines, and since everything upto the first two or three expansions (at least I think?) is F2P it's very easy to pick up. Though they all have their merits, I'd personally I recommend the Agent or Inquisitor storylines if you only have time for one or two. The female Inquisitor can be played especially snarky and can just be a riot to play.

    I'd have to check number of hours, but yeah, on DAI, It's nowhere near that long.

    As for TOR, it's probably been a couple of years and I did go with the Inquisitor and Agent for a couple of them. The other was the Jedi Knight and that one seemed the easiest, though it's the Inquisitor that got off world.

    I'm honestly a little suspicious of that number, since I got into the habit of screwing with my system's clock rather than wait on certain wartable missions. That might have thrown it off quite a bit. Still, I did used to play the multiplayer semi-consistently from launch all the way to the release of 'Trespasser' and I got several Inquisitors at least as far as the Hinterlands aside from the 4 that I actually had serious progress on. I really want to get back to my Dwarven archer at some point, because she's adorable and very very ginger.
    Yeah, those three plotlines are probably the most consistently entertaining. With the others, some don't get going until Act II, others kinda trail off after Act I...YMMV of course. Mind you, with the sheer volume of side content that game has now you'll be hard pressed not to find something new to try. The Starfighter mode on it's own is probably worth the download.
