View Full Version : Best replayability(no pole)

Is it just me, or are games losing their replayability factor?
Theres alot of games out there,and when you first get one of those great games and first plug it in your consel you probably say"OMIGOSH, this game is teh own!"Two weeks later that game is beaten and has it's fair share of dust.At this piont you might be saying"OMIGOSH,I get to play the same game in a different costume!"
Anyways...my point is that alot of games have an incredibly short lifespan;after the game has been beaten it's beaten.Sure you could play it on "hard" mode but the only difference is that you either take more damage or gain less experience.In an average game ou might get some shiny thing that multiplies damage,but why would you want to play an easier version of the same game?
Anyway, does anyone agree or disagree,please give reasons for your choice.

Good point brought up. Often the most replayable games are the ones that you cant "beat", like online first person shooters.

Well, games that have different endings are always good.
Some games (lRPGs) are good to play after a year or so because you have forgotten a lot of what happens in the story.
Others, like puzzle games like Ico and Prince of Persia, are good because after a while you forget how to solve the puzzles.
It is true that with MMORPGs and FPSs you dont necessarily have to worry about replay value, but they do get old after awhile. I have experienced this with CounterStrike (and other mods like DOD), RagnarokOnile, UnrealTournment. So with those you still have to take a break from them.

starcraft, counterstrike very replayable
Some games that arent include: hitman2, spiderman, wolverine's revenge, (because once you beat the single player, youre done, they dont include multiplayer

In general,online games do have alot of replayability since your opponents are always changing.And yes,MOH has 0 replayability factor.

ALL first person shooters are replayable, even more if they're online like Halo, Tribes 2, or Unreal Tournament 2003/2004

Oh yeah, Postal 2, it rocks, I downloaded a demo of Share The Pain, I can't seem to get the retarded bots to MOVE, the only way I can kill them is if I throw a grenade at their spawn points.. But the single player is alot better than the demo they put on a CD that my friend got, you can actually get out of the grocery store if the gate closes, unlike the older version of the demo.

Natural-Selection... I've been playing it for over a year now and it still has great replayability.

I would have to say any online FPS, especially if it has stats, cause I like my stats.

you spelt poll wrong...
but seriously fighting games have endlessreplay value, if you have enough friends to play against.
I also think that really hard games have good replay value especially if they're just as hard the second time through, but I don't think there are many of those...

I've played Diablo 2 for quite some time now... and a baseball game, but both are beginning to lose their replay factor... The only game I've really played consistently is Step Mania (nearing 100 plays for Sakura. . . 87 and counting.)
