    Overwatch...

    Yeah OK (sarcasm)

    The replayability factors for Skyrim are also there for TES IV, Oblivion and TES III, Morrowind. I've replayed each of those more even than I have Skyrim.

    IMO the same can be said for all earlier versiions of "Civilization". Friends and I played Civ 1 over and over for a very long time when it came out.

    Most of the others I've not played, though Wing Commander: Privateer is quite replayable, for there are a number of ways to go.

    Skyrim... no... Fighting games can be played over and over

    borderlands 2, hello?
  • apertotes
    I can't believe you left out KOTOR.

    Terraria should definitely be on this list. It may not have a following like Skyrim or Fallout but once you play it you will keep going back. As of this writing I have around 900 hours total in that game.

    lol POP? GTA SA or VC? NFS MW? MIDNIGHT CLUB? this List is utter Crap
  • joz
    Diablo 2 on this list? That's correct.

    Diablo 2 not number one? That's incorrect. To gulag with the author!

    The original Borderlands is far superior to BL2.

    if you gonna include Overwatch for its heroes varieties, try Dota 2 and or any MOBA games
  • LORD_ORION
    Master of Orion 2
    Dark Souls 1 (with all its interconnected back passages to exploit)
    Total War Warhammer
    Total Annihilation (check out the mod section)

    Age of Empires 2, Diablo 2, and Fallout NV deserve this list. Borderlands should be on this list, and I'm actually hurt that KOTOR isnt here. Overwatch does not deserve this list, nor Skyrim. And no fighting games? Seriously?

    One game that I've played over and over and never seems to get old is "The 7th Guest". I love that game and have never found another like it. Even it's sequel isn't as good.

    Agree with D2, but I've never played most of the others even once, so...

    The most I've ever replayed a game was Neverwinter Nights 2 and it's expansions (especially Mask of the Betrayer). So many different character builds to try.

    i replay mafia 2 at least once a year

    Games like Metro and Doom have great replayability. However, I don't think games like Borderlands, Fallout or even Mass Effect have good replay value.. because a majority of the time you're just an errand boy and that gets boring real quick. Most times if I have to replay one of those types of games I usually leave out all those boring side quests I did during the first playthrough.

    I do fondly remember Diablo II but I think Path of Exile is better. Also Factorio is great, especially with nuclear power. Currently doing a no-logistics achievement run with a friend. I don't think I could ever bring myself to do the build-almost-nothing-in-hand run though. Would be a massive PITA to get to the point where the robots do the heavy lifting.
