    Ok, I've got about fifteen hours clocked up now and I've gotten Tenumwhatever and Clover's endings.

    All I have to say is this,

    Heck even if they made 999/ VLR into a show/movie, live-action or animated, I'll take it.

    Knowing Japan, they'll probably make it into a musical before anything else, haha!

    I have just bought two games from Amazon for Christmas. And guess which ones: 999 and VLR. I wasn't sure about buying 999, but people really recommended it and decided to give it a try. I'll play 999 first so I catch all the references when playing VLR :)

    Yep, that's right.
    Always so hesitant with spoilers in this thread considering I haven't finished the game yet xD

    Im finding this game pretty difficult to replay because i know which "path" leads to what ending and thus i cant enjoy discovering each specific section in turn, i really wish my brain had a recycle bin coz then i could just delete the savefile on the game (and from my head) and enjoy this game all over again!

    Trust me, I'm worse off. Heavy Rain for the PS3. I've been wanting to replay that for a loooong time but I still remember everything clearly. Been atleast 1 and a half years, if not 2+.

    That's probably the biggest problem with the adventure genre. There's close to fuck all replay value.

    Except in this game there is. Yeah you might go through the same text and some cutscenes, but you never do the same room twice.

    That's not really "replay" value. You're not exactly replaying it. Replaying it would be repeating every single ending after you already had completed them...

    Well in that regards, a metric ton of games aren't replayable at all. Mario, Zelda, Borderlands 2 (After you complete the game), Assassin's Creed games, Kingdom Hearts, Batman games, Final Fantasy...

    The way I see it, if you feel like down the road at all that you want to play the game through again for whatever reason, whether it has added stuff or not, it's replayable. Personally, I'll probably go through this game and 999 all over again because they're just that good.

    Nearly twenty hours in now and I've added Dio and Alice's ending. I need to start on K's route and than I'm on the homestretch to getting all the standard endings.

    Than I go for the true and special endings.

    Nah, those are different. This game is basically all about the mystery, puzzles and story. Replay it and you lose the mystery, you know the story and you can solve all the puzzles (with a few exceptions; dice can burn in hell). Most of the games you listed have some action gameplay that can be just fun to do.
