All things considered, I think Diablo II: Lord of Destruction is the one game I've completed the most times.  But that's a game that's really based around doing multiple playthroughs.

I keep a list of games I've played more than once here; pretty sure it's up to date. That list considers ports (Chrono Trigger, etc.) and remakes (mainly Cave Story and Halo) as replays, so hopefully those count? Out of all those, the one I've played through the most has been Final Fantasy VII, for a total of four times.

As far as time spent with a game, I've played over 450 hours of Tropico 4, including DLC maps and the Modern Times expansion. I also put well over 300 hours into Animal Crossing: Wild World over the course of about a year. There's probably one or two others...

Final Fantasy I. I've played it through to completion at least 10-15 times on various platform versions. As soon as it hits the Wii U VC, I'll buy and play through it again.


Other games I've replayed alot are Final Fantasy Tactics, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 0-4, Starcraft, and Solitaire. Tons and tons of Solitaire.

For non multiplayer , I would say Metroid Prime

I do play a good bit of tf2 and plants vs zombies garden warfare.

I will edit this to add more once I get on the full site with a keyboard.

I run back through Chrono Trigger probably once every year or two.  Also easily the game I've played on the widest array of hardware, as I've completed it on SNES, PS1, PS2, PS3, Vita, DS, 3DS, and Android thanks to the various versions and different system's backwards compatibility.


I've also played through Star Fox 64 an ungodly amount of times (both on N64 and on 3DS) but that game is hella short and designed for many many playthroughs.  There was probably times as a child when I played through Star Fox 64 8 or 10 times in a single weekend.  


I also have no idea how many times I've played through Resident Evil 2, but there was one whole summer I think after 7th grade when I was playing through it over and over again to see how fast I could finish (my best time wound up just a little under 2 hours) so that would probably be very high on the list as well, although I don't think I've really played it since that summer.  Certainly not any time in the past decade or so.

Many... I've played each Mass Effect game at least like 7 times. Other games I've played 2 or 3 times, off the top of my head, Dragon Age 1 and 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Dead Space, BioShock 2, Kingdoms of Amalur, Alice Madness Returns. Probably a lot of others as well. Many for achievements, but some just purely for fun. Mass Effect games never get old no matter how many times I play them. :)


Back before the last couple of generations, I didn't tend to play campaigns more than once, instead I would take games like Final Fantasy VI, Secret of Mana, or Pokemon and just grind for dozens of hours to max everything.

Off the top of my head....

Back in the day on the Apple //c I played a lot of Oregon Trail, Karateka, Sid Meier's Pirates!, and Wings of Fury

Diablo II

Every now and then I will replay Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy Tactics

Metal Gear Solid 1-3 I replayed immediately after finishing to either unlock the bandana, stealth suit, and tuxedo or collect the dog tags.

Resistance I replayed immediately upping the difficulty each time


I wish I had more time to replay other games.  As it is I don't have the time to play half of the games I already own.

Mirror's Edge

Guacamelee! (both editions I guess)

Rogue Legacy


Smash Bros. series

Legend of Zelda games

Pokémon games

Rockband/Guitar Hero series


These are all the games I've gone back and played a few times, each for their own reasons.  Some are just fun to play story-wise, and others I get a kick out of just jumping in and playing for a bit (mostly Smash Bros. and the music games).

I probably beat Chrono Trigger the most out of any game. The re-playabilty of that game is off the charts. Getting all the endings, weapons, and secrets was great. My original SNES version was maxed out at lvl 99. But as of the last decade I very rarely will do a second run-through. The only game I can think of in recent memory is The Walking Dead. Just not enough time and I'd rather just jump into a diffrent game.


Honorable mentions with at least 3 or more play throughs are:


Secret of Mana

Mega Man 2

Castlevania SotN


Resident Evil

Metal Gear Solid 1 & 3

Games I've played through at least five times over the years, some many more. Some of the Mega Man games I speed run. Mega Man 2 (probably 100+ times), Mega Man 4 and 9, Mega Man X 1 2 and 4, Mega Man Zero 3 and 4, Super Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, FF VI ( currently playing again on GBA), FFVII, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario 3, Super Mario World, Zelda ALttP, Zelda links awakening, Castlevania SotN, Dark Souls 1 and 2, God of War 2 and 3,  Metal Gear Solid 1(currently playing on PSN) 2 and 3, Ratchet and Clank (first one at least five times, the rest at least twice), and I'm sure that's not all but I can't think of anymore right now.  It's always great to go back to the classics. Sure, partly because nostalgia, but mostly because they're great games. Also being cheap I don't buy a lot of games day one, so while waiting on price drops I'll replay something I know I'll enjoy. I'm sure that I'll go back to more recent games in the future. I've been thinking about replaying Darksiders, Metal Gear Rising, and Red Dead Redemption recently.

Since I started playing in 3D I've tried to go back to some older titles that I finished previously and they look really awesome in 3D and it feels like a new experience.


Shadow Warrior


Lara Croft

Dead Space 2 & 3

Dirt 3

The only game I've played multiple times in the last 10 years or so is second son to the tropy for good and evil.   Otherwise I treat it like books i just don't care enough to play the same game twice (except for the harry potter series)

After college and grad school (and now kids) I've seemed to gravitate toward handheld consoles (and lots of ported games on them), probably due to limited amounts of time.  I think this generation of consoles (PS4, Wii U, Xbone) will be the first to see me not buy one.  My entertainment center is starting to look like a time warp back to the mid-90s.


My two most-played games of all time would have to be The Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past and Final Fantasy II (IV in Japan) and their various ports.


Multiple playthroughs and I still go back to:



- Doom - Collector's Edition

- Starflight 2

- The Oregon Trail




- Batman

- Castlevania

- Crystalis

- Final Fantasy I

- Contra

- Journey to Silius

- The Legend of Zelda

- Life Force

- Mega Man II

- Super Spike V'Ball


- Wizards & Warriors

- Zelda II




- The 7th Saga

- Chrono Trigger

- Earthbound

- Lagoon

- Lufia and the Fortress of Doom

- Lufia II - Rise of the Sinistrals

- NBA Jam TE (usually only when a buddy can play 2P)

- Secret of Mana

- Sunset Riders

- Super Ghouls & Ghosts

- Super Mario Kart

- Super Mario World

- Super Punch-Out!!


Master System

- Golden Axe Warrior

- Golvellius: Valley of Doom

- Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord

- Phantasy Star

- Pro Wrestling

- Rambo: First Blood Part II

- Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap



- NHL Hockey (Just to play as the MN North Stars again)

- Phantasy Star III

- Sonic The Hedgehog

- Starflight

- Streets of Rage



- Double Dragon Advance

- Final Fantasy VI Advance (this took over my FF III on SNES)

- Golden Sun

- The Legend of Zelda - ALttP / Four Swords

- Phantasy Star Collection


Nintendo DS

- Dragon Quest V

- Tetris DS



- Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection (my go-to and most-played port of FF II SNES)


Nintendo 3DS

- The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time 3D

- Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call


Xbox 360

- Rock Band 3 (only when multi-player parties happen)

I rotate through the usual suspects on PC rather often (Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, HoMM 3, Sim City 4, Baldur's Gate, assorted Infocom text adventures).  The only game I regularly return to on the older consoles is SSX 3.

Hmmmm, I used to be all console until around college and our consoles didn't tend to last.  Nintendo broke, Super Nintendo was stolen, etc.


So the stuff I have left now tends to be PC and PS2 and PS3.


The ones lately I've played multiple times:


The Walking Dead Season 1

Sleeping Dogs

Sniper Elite V2


And if we're counting like MP games then I replay the crap out of the 2K series, Killing Floor, Infestation.


I've played a ton of Nation Red too along with Everyday Genius.  I go back to those the most often.  


For storybased games nowadays I tend to be one and done.
