    Im talking about that game or games that you have beaten upwards of 4 or 5 times. The game you are the Prima Strategy guide for. The game you get 100% without breaking a sweat. And youll come back next year for your yearly completion of it again. And again the next. What are they for you?

    Title: Super Mario 64
    Beatings: So many. Like all 4 slots at least once (maybe about 6 times) on the 64 version and all the slots on the DS version.

    First up for me, its good old SM64. I cream this game about every 1 or 2 years. Last fall on move in day, one of my friends found me sitting in my room with my 3 bags sitting around me (not unpacked yet) and a single chair when were i was sitting, enjoying this game again. Every star, coin, boss, i know them all.


    Title: Crash Team Racing
    Beatings: 6 or 7 100% on story mode
    [​IMG]
    Then we have good old CTR. Oh man just thinking about this makes me wanna break out the ps2 again... Maybe my PSP can handle it... Anyways, Omg. SO much better than Mario Kart 64 could ever hope to be. Memorable tracks, music... I love the story mode and beating the boss's faces in...

    Title: Mega Man X4
    Beat: At least 5
    [​IMG]
    It takes me only a few hours and im through this game. Its so good...
    One night in college, it was Jersey Shore night (long story; dont ask) one of my friends make a joke, got on the other friend's nerves, and he threw a fan a the kid. Doors were slammed and walls were punched... So i went to my room and beat this game in a night, while piers watched me (the one who threw the fan and punched walls) he was calm and enjoyed watching me the whole way through, as i beat this game for the 4th time.


    What are yours? Your lying if you dont have one...

    Away from you.
    Super Mario 64 DS.
    I never owned a nintendo 64 before, so i downloaded it and tried it out. I loved it. It was just amazing. I beat it up to 5 or 6 times. I really enjoyed it. It wasn't that hard to beat too.

    There are few games I have beaten a few times, but don't always get 100%

    There are two games however that I am always playing and always beating and that's Yoshi's Island for the SNES and Yoshi's Story for the N64.

    Only yearly?
    I'll beat Robot Ninja Haggleman every week, then I'll do a victory deathless run of RNH2.

    I can get it done in less than 3 hours if I don't care about picking up every little upgrade.
    But if I decide to get everything and finish it 100%, I have to take... say... 12-14 hours, to be reasonable?
    At least that's what I'd guess it took me the last (and only) time I did this. 0 deaths, too.

    Yes!
    Good topic. I am the same with Mario 64, I've beaten it around 5 times, 3 100% (all stars).

    [​IMG]
    WOTS2: Beaten at least 15 times. Short game but tons of endings and swords to collect. Same with WOTS1.


    [​IMG]
    Urban Reign: Beat 5 times on various difficulties. This game is so freakin' good it angers me.


    [​IMG]
    Kaidou Battle 2: Beat 5 times, twice 100%. By far my favorite game of all time.

    Tales of Symphonia. Beat it about 8 times or so now. Can never get enough of it.

    Too lazy to post boxarts, every Megaman X game (the real ones...1-6). I play them all the time. I'm a gigantic fan of the games...too bad they killed the series.

    Castlevania SOTN for me, this game has it all.. Alucard style, secrets filled maps along the surprising upside down version, its infamous 200.6%, gothic/rockish Soundtrack.. What else!?

    I used to play this game yearly, each time finishing it in a slightly different style.

    ...unfortunately, I no longer have the disc. That said, I'm pretty sure I did almost all there is to be done in it.

    I have been playing this game for like 10 years now:
    [​IMG]
    I used to only be able to play it once every year when I went to my grandparents place, but since Nintendo put it up for download from the Wii Shop Channel I can play it any time I like :yay:

    Mario 64/Sunshine/Galaxies, I go through each one to about 70% every year.
    Sonic Unleashed/Colours, pretty new games, but I've gone through both of them around 5 times 100%.
    Warcraft 3, I've gone through all the campaigns on hard with all sidequests twice, great game.
    Those were from the top of my mind, I'm certain I can think of more.

    I lost track of how many times I beated those two. They're soooo addictive!
    the scoring system of Star Successor makes you wanna play again and again and again
    and the OST is just plain awesome

    EDIT: ah!!... I forgot my favourite game
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Why does it seem that no one finishes newer game more than once these days?

    You have to wait for the next generation of gamers - we are nostalgic over Doom, they'll be nostalgic over, say, Call of Duty. It's a matter of what is contemporary to you and admired by you as a child.

    Destiny of all people - become either an old fart who knows that "things were better back in the day" or a creepy grandpa/grandma "still following the trends" by the end of our lives - you only get those two choices. :P

    Super Mario Land GB, usually 3 times in a row. After first time it got harder and the second time you got level select.
    Zelda: Link's Awakening GB/GBC, one of my favourite games of all time.
    Zelda: OoT N64/3DS, done it a fair few times over the years not done master quest yet.
    Too many PC games to count, list includes Max Payne 1/2, Doom and Half Life series.
    Now I have too many games to play that I would likely never complete them all.

    I played Twilight Princess maybe like 5 times. It's the only Zelda I can truly say I thought was top-of-the-line excellent. The Oracle games weren't bad though.

    Otherwise there's not much I replayed in recent years. Maybe Puzzle Quest CotW but I never beat it, the difficulty just hits a goddamn wall every time and I just quit at that point and come back at a later date. I still have to beat Puzzle Quest 2 which feels a bit more balanced though.
