So you've just completed a game, and it's so good you start it up again and run through from scratch.

Any games you've done this with?

For me it's the whole of CoD, CoD:UO and COD2. I played them all back to back over a few days, then did it all again. You get to try some different combat styles this way.

I did the orange box too (except HL2 and TF2), mainly because of the director commentary though, so it only half counts. I had to stop myself from replaying portal for a 4th time though, as I just have to get to the end once I've started. Second time I was really ruthless with the AI though, knocking cameras off and trashing turrets without hesitation. What the computer said after I toasted WCC was believable that time ;) 

I guess stuff like KotOR would be good to do this with, as it can be played different ways, except I can't bring myself to be dark side.

[didn't want to add OT stuff to the not completed thread]

HL2 & Episode 1
Splinter Cell
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
Dark Messiah
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - This one actually has 3 different endings, I tried all of 'em.
I was playing through Gran Turismo 3 again recently, but I got to the endurance races and didn't feel up to it.

I pretty much always start each game on the default difficulty (sometimes even easy mode), then second time through crank up the difficulty. With the exception of any new Half-Life game, I just go straight to Hard every time.

I did the second stalker ending from save games, as there's a bit too much walking in that game which gets boring. For the third/open the door ending I didn't have any older saves to keep me from walking back through the game, so I rushed through that one with some help from a dragunov. Rubbish way of doing it, but it's the best ending.

hey enphotic, finishing oblivion twice is a complete massacre of your time (and your life).

kudos to you for being able to get through (and being able to return to reality hehe)!
November 11, 2007 3:31:49 PM

I got through every single quest in oblivion twice so far
November 11, 2007 6:04:01 PM

Half life 1 many times because it's the only game my sister would let me play, if I played Starcraft or any other game she would boot me off (Yeah, I know she's 1/4 my size, but she screams so loud it pierces duct tape).

Edit, a list

Half Life
Goldeneye (N64)
Homeworld Cataclysm
Duke Nukem 64
Killer Instinct I & II (and GOLD, the arcade one lol)
Diablo/Diablo II/LoD
Guild Wars (all the chapters except the expansion, too bored to play)
Halo (Xbox - beat it many times on all the difficulties and i'm still a Halo hater lol)

I haven't been replaying newer games, been playing mostly multiplayer since 04, from 02 to 04 not really played many games.

I am currently re-starting CoD 4, which I believe to easily be the best of the series. I havent enjoyed a game as much as this one in a long time. I just cant wait till I get my 8800GTS 640mb 65nm refresh so I can turn the rest of the options and res up that I dont have all the way up right now!

Jedi Knight Dark Forces II: 5x
Mysteries of the Sith: 4x

Soldier of Fortune Double Helix: 2x
Far Cry: 4x
Medal of Honour, various expansions: 2-4x
Half Life 2: 3x

Desert Combat: not really a game you play "to the finish over again", but I played it almost constantly for what, the 2 years it was awesome, before those d**ks at EA released BF2, noobified the franchise and ruined it. Don't tell me you liked anything after 1942 cause I won't listen, and it only lets us all know you're a noob. God I miss circle of death with the Hind!

Likely forgetting several in there!

The Max Payne series...played them several times....
Deus X: 3x
November 12, 2007 3:40:41 AM

I'm right there with you, 3Ball. Call of Duty 4 just made the list tonight. It's that good.

Call of Duty
Half-Life 2 (PC and Xbox)
BioShock (PC and 360)
The Chronicles of Riddick (ditto)
Resident Evil 4 (GameCube and Wii)
November 12, 2007 3:45:22 AM

Excluding strategy games which offers lots of replay value, the following is my list of games I've played more than once:

X-Wing - Alliance
Privateer II
X2 - The Return
Jedi Knight Academy
Jedi Knight II - Outcast
Hitman 2
Doom 3
Far Cry
Fallout 2

Probably some other ones that I can't remember.
November 12, 2007 9:08:02 AM

Jagged Alliance 2 (7X)
Jagged Alliance : Unfinished Business (2X)
jagged Alliance : Wildfire (2X)

I wonder why they don't make Jagged Alliance 3 :( 
November 12, 2007 9:38:55 AM

1.Deus Ex- The best single player game of all time. And multiplayer was a hoot..
2. BF2- The best multiplayerplayer game of all time. I get to shoot people, drive tanks and fly jets and choppers=heaven..yes it has bugs but goddamn i paid €50 for it..and have played over 650 hours on it in two that's value for money.
3.Far Cry- Loved the game.Half-Life- Great game but not as good as no 1.
4.Half-Life- Great game but not as good as no 1
5.Half-Life 2- Good game but way overhyped.
November 12, 2007 10:49:39 AM

BF2: I've got over 500 hours in one year, all on one server. I miss DC, especially the M109, MLRS and indirect fire (BF2 arty sucks), the better damage system (I used to be a serious tanker, angle the hull to the enemy and the shots would bounce off), and being able to slap single C4 on a tanks rear end without the turret spinning and taking you out. The only reason I've got that much time with BF2 at all is because the players on the server are so much fun to play with (a lot of them are or have been in service, so they play well as a team), and our admin keeps the immature noobs off the server.
November 12, 2007 2:24:04 PM

oblivion: about 5 times (never finished everything on one character but once you have made a character that has reflect damage 100%, you really need to restart the game)
KOTOR 1 (i actually played on the xbox) came to me at a time when i had basically nothing to do for ages, by the time i was finished with it, i had played through it at least 10 times (no exaggeration)
(kotor 2 sucked compared)
I played through zelda games many times (nowadays most frequently on emulators so it is still a pc game.... sort of :p )
halo 1, actually (at the time, I was still stuck on goldeneye for the n64, you have no idea how good halo looked then)
there are probably other games, but i can't remember them.... (the games I do play tend either to be 1 time through, or quasi-obsessive playing)
November 12, 2007 10:26:34 PM

I forgot about Quake 4.
November 13, 2007 12:35:18 PM

I found that bioshock was one game that, though I loved it while playing it, just didn't compel me to replay it
November 14, 2007 12:32:59 AM

November 14, 2007 2:47:05 AM

Kotor 1,2

HL 2
Max Payne 1,2
Deus Ex 1,2

Im getting a new comp after Christmas, can't wait to start a new batch of games!!!
November 14, 2007 12:39:43 PM

I almost never do that but I did with Deus Ex1 and HL2. I will probably do it with STALKER but my current system is just not good enough to play the game as it needs to be played so I postponed that till I've upgraded.

*edit* Oops, forgot Max Payne (and I must admit in shame that I did not even finish Max Payne 2. Somehow it did not do the same thing to me as the first one).
November 14, 2007 1:02:11 PM

Half life 1, everything up until you come to the surface for the first time, and the whole 'surface tension' chapter, ...for me cant be beaten by anything.

Must have redone just about every game i ever bought. Is that unusual? (hence thread?)
November 14, 2007 1:14:15 PM

Disturbance-you are my hero!
J/K but I don't know many people who have played JK as much as me!

can't believe I forgot about JK, we played it at work lol.
November 15, 2007 1:26:12 AM

There's a few more that I played never finished couple of them was space games. Just got bored with them.
Started Neverwinter nights two times now and never have gotten that far either time... gets too boring.

Still play SimCity, AOE, RailRoad tycoon occasionally. The best part to those games is replayability. Each time you start it up it's always different.

November 21, 2007 9:53:21 AM

yep..forgo about JK2 and Max Payne..wasn't too impressed with the 2nd one..the bullet time was way better in the first one..
November 21, 2007 10:01:17 AM

Two "for sure" game series I can think of:

Gothic and Gothic 2 - have completed every possible faction and profession. That's a lot of hours right there.

Baldur's Gate - 3 or 4 times. I can't remember if I finished my 4th game. I just love that gameworld; running around the Sword Coast. I might play it again but I think I've seen all there is to see.

I've replayed a lot of other games but usually I quit before I'm done. HL 2 is a great example. I just can't keep myself playing to finish it a second time.
November 22, 2007 9:26:10 AM

doom 3, maybe doen it 3 times, ...I love listening to the audio logs, soo much extra atmosphere in the game then,

"...this is richard carter, head of maintenance, been hearing alot of srange sounds lately, gonna go check it out later today"

November 23, 2007 9:31:52 PM

I must have it. Somehow this has stayed off my radar and I NEED it!

Games I have repeated...some of them many many times. Also excluding Fighting games, Shooters, RTSs, and 4X games due to their repeatable natures.

Jagged Alliance 2
Deus Ex
Jade Empire
Baldur's Gate 2
Fallout 2
Diablo II
Elite II Frontier
Battletech Crecent Hawk's Inception
Mechwarrior 2
Mechwarrior 2 Mercs
Mechwarrior 4
Mechwarrior 4 Mercs
Disgaea 2
Planescape Torment
Mech Commander
Mech Commander 2
Chrono Trigger
probably several others that I'm forgetting

Huh, looking at this list I guess I am a Battletech and Bioware whore.
